Four 2018 Closet Design Trends To Consider For Your Home

Are you looking for some new trends and design ideas to spice up your closet in 2018? If so, you’ve come to the right place. With housing prices on the rise, optimizing your closet space to be elegant and functional can be a great way to make the most of the space you have available. If you’re hoping to upgrade your home’s interior with some fresh closet design, consider implementing some of the following trends this year.

Leverage Your Corners

Corner spaces can be difficult to work with. Because of their shape, corners are often used poorly or simply not used at all. Rather than wasting this space, consider implementing cabinets, hanging features, and other storage options meant for closet corners. This can be a great way to make the most out of the existing space you have without having to make too many major changes.

Metallic Finishes and Accents

Adding some metallic tones such as silver accents and chrome finishes is another option for modernizing your closet space in 2018. You may consider adding mirror tops to dressers, installing elegant drawer handles, or other options for adding metallic tones to your space. Closet chandeliers are also gaining popularity, and can be another way to add a little metallic sparkle to your space.

Back Wall Accenting

Back wall accenting is another 2018 closet design trend that can help you brighten up your space and give it a fresh new look. This is a great solution for any closet space with a plain or dreary aesthetic. Consider painting the back wall in a complementary color as your room, or adding fun decorative wallpaper to modernize and customize your closet system.

Creative Space-Savers

There are many ways to make the most of a small space with creative space saving solutions. Whether you have more shoes than you’d like to admit or your coat-to-closet space ratio isn’t optimal, consider some of the following innovative space-saving options:

  • Use hanging hardware. Implementing over-the-door hanging racks or a simple and elegant hanging rod on otherwise unused closet walls is a decorative way to make the most of your space.
  • Implement multiple levels. Adding an extra level of hanging space to your closet is another crafty way to make the most of the space you already have.
  • Show off your shoes: Shoe shelving is a popular closet design choice this year. Having optimal shoe space in your closet can help you keep shoe clutter to a minimum and show off your shoe collection at the same time.
