B.L. Rieke Design Team: Designing Custom Closets

There are many elements that make up one's dream home: the kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, flooring, paint, plumbing, lighting, and much more.  Perhaps one of the most overlooked areas of a custom home are the closets and pantries.  Both are prime spots for smart storage and organization of personal belongings and the other "stuff" in your home.

The Versatility of Custom Closets

When done right, a closet can serve many purposes.  It can be a place of relaxation and luxury in a master bedroom suite.  Or, it can be a functional area in the garage that maximizes storage space for home and lawn equipment.  Wherever storage space is needed, a custom-designed closet can easily fill the need.  At B.L. Rieke, we can transform a simple closet space into an organized paradise, complete with plenty of shelves, clothing rods, drawers, coat hooks, shoe cubbies, more--all crafted to fit the homeowner's specifications.

Options for Special Closets

Special closets, like in the master bedroom or garage, can be retrofitted with unique add-ons to help fulfill homeowners' storage needs.  For example, here's what we can add to a master bedroom closet:

  • Counter spaces for folding clothes, packing, outfit planning, etc.
  • Wall-mounted "hideaway" ironing board
  • Benches with built-in storage options underneath
  • Cubbies measured for various shoe heights
  • Pull-out and pegged racks for ties, belts, and scarves
  • Felt-lined drawers for jewelry
  • Built-in hampers and laundry baskets
  • Telescoping valet rods for individual outfits
  • Wall-mounted or pull-out closet mirrors
Custom master bedroom closets can include additional features

A full-length mirror and "hideaway' ironing board add even more function to this customized closet.


Custom closets: cubbies, clothing rods

Cubbies and clothing rods in different heights accommodate for a variety of wardrobes.

In garage closets, we can add features such as:

  • Heavy-duty hooks
  • Reinforced metal shelving
  • Wall or ceiling mounted racks for bikes, lawn equipment, etc.
  • Slatwall panels or track systems for storing tools
  • Spaces for storing utility carts, tool chests, etc.

With clever designs and custom features, closets can easily help homeowners maximize their storage areas while staying neat and organized.  Using savvy interior designers like the B.L. Rieke Design Team, and quality products like Rev-A-Shelf, homeowners can easily achieve this masterful use of space.
