Hi. I do not have a closet in our bedroom. I was wondering how to build a stand-alone closet and how larger should it be?
In older homes, it's not unusual to come across bedrooms without closets. Armoires were used in eras past to store clothes and accessories - a trend that's somewhat on the rise with customizable wardrobes.
Even in homes with added wardrobes and armoires, though, closets are never a bad idea - especially from a resale standpoint. In terms of size, I've never heard anyone complain about a closet that's too large! Balance your storage needs with the amount of square footage your room will lose.
