Designer Marina Moreno, Valet Custom Cabinets & Closets, designed this wardrobe system for clients who had expanded their master bedroom. Packed with special features and touches, this design helped the homeowner maximize their new space.
Here’s how Moreno described the project:
 

Description

Moreno said she came on board this project at a crucial decision time when the homeowners were trying to decide where and how to create a frame for a master reach-in closet after they had eliminated the existing reach-in closet to expand the master bedroom. 
They wanted to have a his and hers side, easy access to all clothing and shoes, and were also hoping to include a nook or alcove for a TV or a work of art somewhere in the bedroom. 
 
They wanted a sophisticated, aesthetically pleasing contemporary style to match the home, but wanted the system to blend into the background rather than stand out. I was able to come alongside and recommend an external wardrobe with a media alcove versus a standard framed reach-in with sliding doors. 
 
This external wardrobe design delivered all the special features and qualities the homeowners were seeking while maximizing the use and accessibility of the closet space inside the master bedroom.
