Accessorizing Your Closet Space

When we hear the word “accessories” we typically think of the things that we add  on to what we're wearing; going beyond our clothing garments to include items like earrings and necklaces for women and ties and cufflinks for men.

But there's so much more you can add to your closet system.

So we put together the latest and greatest “must have” items for tricking out your closet in style.


Hafele Drawer Lighting

Lighting options have expanded greatly since LED lighting has become widely available in the marketplace. A couple of the top benefits of LED lighting are that it is very energy efficient and it does not get hot like Halogen bulbs, so it's safer.

So the advances in technology have enabled the creation of some really great options. One of the ones we love the most are rechargeable LED lights (from Hafele) that can be installed in your drawers (so you can tell your blue socks from your black socks). And these lighting devices work either automatically (as the drawers open and close) or can be turned off manually and have an exceptionally long battery life.

There are also some accent lighting options that really add to the beauty (and function) of your space. We can incorporate this Light Integrated Trim (LIT from Keeler) into crown molding or at countertop/drawer stack height to add real panache.

Ironing Board

There aren't many people who love to iron, but making it easy and convenient certainly helps. So if you've got a walk in closet, allocating a small amount of space for this awesome fold-out ironing board really makes touch ups easier.

Mirrormax  Sidelines


We all need to take a good look in the mirror before we walk out the door. Or even just put on our earrings. Of course, you can have a small mirror on a stand on your dresser drawers, but you can also get something fun and fancy in the mirror category. This one allows you to not only see yourself, but store some of your stuff behind it, so it works double duty.

If you'd like to learn more about how these wonderful closet accessories can be incorporated into your closet space, give us a call. We'd be delighted to meet with you and see what we can come up with as a solution for your space.

A Mirror For More Than A Look

Do you feel like you see yourself coming and going?

Or perhaps you can't keep up with how fast you're coming and going.

Still, you want to look good while you're “doing it all”, and well placed mirrors can make that so much easier, all while increasing functionality (that's almost better than having the prince rescue you!)

So take a moment to “look in the mirror” and see some wonderful ways that we've incorporated them into our closet designs. With any luck, you'll be inspired to do the same.

Mirrors make spaces look larger, so if you can incorporate mirrors into a walk in closet space, even if it's small, it will feel bigger. If it's already big, it will feel magnificent. Think about adding mirrors on door fronts, on the actual door to a closet, or on some wall space.

We're not suggesting you give up precious storage space in order to accommodate a mirror. We're suggesting you consider some clever ways to add them to your space without compromising a thing.

If you decide to put a mirror on the wall, make sure you will still be able to have a good line of sight and be able to see yourself once the closet is filled with your clothing. Clothing often sticks out beyond the panel structure of a closet and is deeper, so double check your viewing clearances.

And check the installation height location if it's a mirror that's not full length. If the woman who “wears” this closet is petite, make sure she can see her full face (at minimum) in the mirror. This comes in to play if you're putting mirrors on upper door cabinets.

There's also a 3-way mirror to consider. If you've got enough space in your Walk-In closet, a well-versed designer can create the space so that there is storage behind three sections that are hinged to open so they function like a 3-way mirror. Take a look at some of these pictures that illustrate the point more clearly.

And one more option, in case you just can't get enough! The closet industry offers what is known as a “Pull-Out Mirror”. It can be installed onto one of the vertical panels in your closet system and can be “pulled out” when you need it and pushed back into its' place when not in use. Again, a designer who's worth their salt can guide the design process so it's installed in a location that's functional.

Give us a call. One of our designers would be delighted to help you with that.
