AMANDA TALKS CUSTOM
Mirrored closet and cabinet doors play up the room’s natural light and echo the look of windows on the exterior wall. The floor-length mirrors are the best place for final peeks at outfits before heading out the door. Custom cabinetry is worth the investment for reasons beyond
its winning looks.
TO USE EVERY INCH
Built-to-fit units under the bay windows fill two roles. The cushy window seats work as shoe-tying stations with storage shelves and make “what was once dead space feel
FOR BETTER FUNCTION
You can build in
super-shallow storage. Amanda opted for a 10-inch
deep armoire so items don’t get lost in
dark back corners.
TO SAVE LONG-TERM
If you’ll have to spend on retrofitting units into odd spaces
or need tricky installation, get a recommended local cabinetmaker to do the job.
(If standard sizes and shapes will work, go with stock cabinetry.)
