At every age, potential home buyers rank master suites as an important "must have" and prefer walk-in closets. The spaciousness of a walk-in closet matches the sense of luxury a grand master suite imparts. But many consumers are not content with just a walk-in closet, they are looking for his and her closets!
It seems that closet space is always an issue, so potential homeowners are willing to pay extra for separate closets. His and her closets allow each person to be more organized with clothes and personal items – or to be less organized without aggravating his or her partner.
When organizing a walk-in closet – large shared closet or his and her closets – it's a good idea prioritize space for hanging clothes. It's ideal to have separate sections for long and short clothing, so create different areas for dresses, shirts, and trousers.
Your closet should be well lit so you can easily find what you are looking for. Avoid windows in the space because exposure to the ultraviolet rays in sunlight can fade fabrics. Keep incandescent lightbulbs away from clothing. The bulbs can get hot and could become a fire hazard otherwise. And make sure to position overhead lighting between the contents of your closet and where you will be standing when you look for clothing. This will allow for the best light and will avoid casting shadows on the closet's contents.
From an aesthetic and organization standpoint, try to use matching hangers in your closet. The space will feel more organized and neater. Use either good-quality wooden hangers or simple plastic hangers for a clean modern look – or a combination of plastic for shirts and blouses and wood for heavier garments. Some people also like to use padded hangers for delicate items. However you choose to go, just keep the hanger type consistent with the style and section of clothing where you will use it.
