This Designed in a Click consultation I did recently is one I thought you all might enjoy. Once you see the solution, it looks obvious. If you are the thick of a remodel yourself though and didn't get all the details worked out before you started, sometimes it is hard to back away and see the best solution.
That's when a second pair of eyes, professional eyes if possible, might come in handy.
This niche area was the former location of the shower in this master bath. The tub, down at the end of the bathroom, was removed and the new shower put in it's place.
So, the question was...... how to design this space as a closet now, that would help with storage.
The homeowner wanted an upgraded look to the bathroom. They wanted to take advantage of this gained square footage to add storage, but wanted it to be beautiful and have a luxurious appeal.
Here's a somewhat broader view of the former shower niche, with more closets beside it at the entry to the bathroom, from the bedroom. You can see there is another sliding door closet on the opposite side of the one shown here, so that you walk between them when entering the master bath.
Here was my advice for the bathroom remodel:
I feel like there is no reason for that divider wall between the two "closets" now. It makes more sense and would be a better use of space if you could remove that wall and have a longer wall of cabinetry or wardrobe style cabinets. Then you can have hanging storage in there, drawers below, etc.
I've done this same type design on a long wall in this job, pictured below. I think it looks purposeful and cleans up the details.
I like the idea of doing mirrored panels on the closet doors, would make for a bigger space and this would look really high end and luxurious.
Sometimes all it takes is a second pair of (experienced) eyeballs on a job to help you get to where you want to go.
