For those who enjoy the ultimate in luxury, a closet is more than just storage space. A luxury closet is your own personal showroom, a place to organize and display one’s collection of designer bags, shoes, and apparel. Art collectors and car enthusiasts spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to create showrooms for their valuable pieces and, increasingly, home owners are doing the same thing with their personal collections.
Create a Glass Vault
In several housing markets, like New York and Hong Kong, space is a rare commodity. Make the most of every inch of your luxury home with this glass vault closet. The model pictured has been designed to fit around the staircase of the penthouse. With the push of a button the glass top opens and closes to allow entry into this glamorous walk in closet. The glass creates the illusion of more space, as well as making your luxury closet look like a high end showroom, just waiting to be visited and “shopped” in.
Go BIG….really, really big
This 3,000 square foot, three story megacloset created for a mansion in Houston, Texas, is larger than many people’s homes. Socialite Theresa Roemer modeled her dream closet after her favorite department store Neiman Marcus. It cost her nearly half a million dollars to build what may very well be the largest closet in the entire world. Roemer claims that her next closet will be even larger than this one is.
Put a Television In It
Give your luxury closet the feel of a comfortable living space by adding a television to the room. High end real estate agent Rochelle Maize wanted to feel like she was walking into a luxurious Beverly Hills boutique when she walked into her 400 square foot closet space. So her closet makeover included a flat screen TV along with a refrigerator for Champagne as well as a place to house delicate cosmetics.
