2020 has meant big changes for almost everyone around the world. More people are working at home, choosing to stay in rather than go out, and noticing big changes that need to happen around the house. One of those changes is probably a custom closet or two, and we’re happy to show you the new trends coming up in 2021.

Warmer Closet Colors

Plain white walls for your closet are no longer en vogue, instead warm colors and vibrant textures are making closet spaces come alive.  Warm neutrals such as terracotta and olive green are expected to remain popular, with vibrant colors such as blue and yellow becoming more widely used.

Closet colors popular for color therapy have also become trendy, as busy families seek to relax or improve their well being through the use of colors that promote relaxation, focus, or happiness. You can expect adding natural textures such as leather and wood are also becoming more popular, as people seek a more natural environment in their own homes. Layered rugs in different textures are also popular, adding a splash of color and texture to the flooring.

Cool Lighting

Warm yellow bulbs are being swapped out for cool LED lights for 2021. When ever possible, natural lighting through windows has also become a desirable form of lighting for walk-in closet spaces. Gallery lighting is another popular option to brighten up the interior of your closet. No one likes feeling around a dark closet hoping to find what they need, so lighting should be a major focus if it isn’t already well lit.

Open Faced Custom Closets Are In!

Another big change in 2021 is the doors on closet space. Removing these opens up the shelving to the eye, so it is easier to see what you need. Open-faced custom closets can make organization beautiful, blending form and function together for a beautiful new look. Taking custom closet doors off is especially helpful in 2021, as closets are becoming used for school and work storage as well as normal household functions.

Dynamic Storage and Built-ins Save Space

Because we are staying home more often, it’s important to make sure we make the most of closet space, while also making it easy to use and accessible. Dynamic storage is certainly trending, as more people look for ways to make their closets beautiful and easy to use.

Furniture and accessories can make a closet not only attractive, but much easier to use. Creative designs and high quality custom closets are currently being favored over cheap factory designs, as more consumers become aware of sustainability issues with mass produced items. Many people are choosing to purchase one or two well made pieces for their closet, rather than hoping fast fashion style shelving will last through the new year.

As 2021 comes to a close, many people are looking forward to a brand new year and custom closet. Updating the closet not only brings a fresh new look, but its also a great way to grow and adapt to the changes 2020 brought us. If you know your closet needs an update, these popular trends are a great way to start.
