The groundbreaking days of the walk-in closet are nearly over as the takeover of the live-in closet commences. What exactly is a live-in closet you ask? A live-in closet is one that has been greatly expanded and customized to suit the needs of homeowners. The Wall Street Journal recently featured an article on the popular, new trend of closets. Live-in closets are often the result of remodeled bedrooms with various organization solutions such as: wall-to-wall shelving units, back lights, display cases, islands and even seating. Live-in closets derive their name from their size, they are literally big enough to live in. They are also commonly referred to as dressing rooms or boutique closets.
The reference to boutiques was applied given their ability to be highly specialized to the homeowners’ functional and design needs. Because the closets are custom made they make getting dressed and distributing laundry easier and more efficient. Every item has its place on a hook, in a drawer or display case, or on shelf. While meeting the needs of homeowners, custom made live- in boutique closets increase the value of a home. The article made note of a recent homeowner who sold her home giving credit to her custom live-in closet for increasing the value of her home.
