Horizontal fabric shades are a good choice for a closet room that needs lots of light
Jan 21 2011
A closet room may seem like a contradiction of terms. But for a homeowner who has the luxury of an extra room that isn't used much, Baltimore interior designer Amanda Austin can share her experience in creating a closet room in her home.
A closet room can bring order to a wardrobe.
"No one likes to dig for things; having things stashed underneath the bed," Austin told the Baltimore Sun. "I do think people are willing to have a smaller bedroom for a larger closet. I think everybody wishes to live in a state of convenience and bliss."
Beyond the convenience of organizing a wardrobe with space to spare, many closet rooms also offer a place to store keepsakes, set up a sewing or craft center and comfortable seating for reading or relaxing. One of Austin's windows, for instance, has a window seat.
Like any room, a closet room benefits from having access to lots of natural light. Window treatments can be as elaborate or as simple as those in other parts of the house. Horizontal fabric shades are a good choice, because they can be made in any color, pattern or fabric to match the closet room's décor. They can also be raised easily for full sunlight or closed snugly for privacy.
