The clothes closet is a place, which not only serves for storing clothes.

It’s often a place with many functions, which make it a must for every woman. It’s often a room, connected to the bed-room and can, if it’s sufficiently large, serve multiple purposes. The clothes closet can provide a place for changing, ironing clothes and even resting. For maximum functionality, the clothes closet should have separate divisions for folded and hung clothes. There should be a line, positioned in such a way, that it can be used for hanging both longer clothes, such as coats, and shorter ones, such as jackets and shirts. An important element is shelves for shoes and racks for scarves, bags, hats or umbrellas.

The clothes, which will be stored in drawers, should be placed in such a way, so as to be easily accessible, as they are often among the commonly used items of clothing. If the clothes closet is used by the entire family, the space should be divided into zones for each user. That way disorder and annoying rummaging for finding a specific item of clothing would be omitted. The ironing board can be mobile or positioned at a particular place. Apart from ironing, it often serves for folding clothes. The mirror is one of the most important additional elements, it should be large enough for the home masters can all use it for looking at themselves in full height.

The best type of mirror is a triple panel one, so that the angle of vision wouldn’t change. Apart from this main function, it can also serve a decorative purpose. As part of the room’s decoration, the mirror will make the clothes closet appear visually larger. Lighting in the place is very important. It usually has only synthetic lighting and therefore needs to be brightly lit. Apart from the general lighting, there should also be local lighting for the desktops – the ironing board, the accenting lighting, placed over the mirror and the zone for resting, if there is such.

Other decorative elements can be paintings, vases with synthetic flowers or small statues on the chest of drawers or on the table. If the space is large enough, there should be a place to sit and relax for awhile. A small sofa or a couch with a table, even a stool or a rocking chair, are a perfect decision, which give the place a feeling of comfort and make it more appealing for spending some time in while at home.
