Not Just for Closet Doors - Step Inside

A growing trend in our modern lifestyle is the evolution of the closet turned dressing room, a place for convenience, orderliness, and ambiance. Many years ago I had a visit from a representative from California Closets.

A piece of the conversation that stands out in my mind is his  remark about a whole new attitude toward the humble space to organize your wardrobe.

He told me that when people do a fabulous closet renovation, they want to show it off and will invite their house guests in for a viewing. At the time, I thought it sounded like a sales pitch, but I knew he was making a significant point. 

I guess it's easy to see where I'm going with this. Yes, our knobs and pulls put the extra dazzle on built-in closet drawers, where  boasting rights are well deserved. Imaginative uses of our drapery hardware is also a sweet addition to the well appointed closet.

You can always turn a finial into a robe hook or a tieback into a jewelry hanger.  In any case, I like this modern closet trend... you don't have to be a star to have a dressing room!
