I am so excited to share our master closet reveal with you today on the blog. It’s been a long time coming, and we are loving it!! Our home is a 1925 house, and the master room had virtually NO closet. Seriously though, it was about 4 feet x 2 feet with no long hanging space. Poor Russ had his clothes upstairs, and I had some of mine in the basement. I dreamed of an all white walk-in master closet with an island. Well, my dreams have officially come true, and I pretty much feel like I have won the lottery every time I walk in!
Closet Addition Process
When we decided to do a master closet addition, we (okay, really Russ) began by researching local contractors. Once we found Bill Powers, we pretty much knew he was who we would use. He has years of experience behind him and is backed by a solid reputation. You can just tell he knows what he is talking about. Honestly, working with him made everything SO much easier. He would say, “I recommend this _____.” Or “Here are two good options.” Or “Most typically closets are done like _____.” We pretty much always went with what he said. It eliminated so much stress, googling, etc. We knew overall what we wanted, and he ran with it. The outcome is everything we hoped and more. We were able to stay out of the nitty gritty details, and it made the overall process so much more appealing. We actually befriended the two main carpenters!
All White Walk-In Master Closet with Island Details
Russ and I both knew we wanted an all white closet to keep things clean and bright in the space. While the island was ordered for the space from somewhere, all the shelving on the walls was custom built which is what took the majority of the time. We selected the island top ourselves here locally, and it was cut to fit. The actual shelves on both sides and on my shoe wall are all movable which is so nice! Russ decided he wanted two short hanging spaces. On my side I have both short and long hanging. The small cabinets on the walls are actually pull out hampers. The island has drawer space for both of us on our individual sides. We have been moved in for about two weeks, and I wouldn’t change a thing!
Closet Addition Process
I will say, the closet addition process has been lengthy. We broke ground the first week of August. It’s now mid-October and the exterior is still lacking paint. However, this is primarily because we also did our other door/patio project at the same time. Honestly, this is more than a closet. It’s a whole room. I have learned to be okay with the mess, having people in my home at all times, and the timeline being flexible. If I have one tip for you, it would be to be flexible. Let me know if you have any questions!
