Walk-in closets are great. As many a person can tell you, it adds a feeling of luxury to your home. If your home does not have a walk-in closet, you might consider adding one.
Make sure you choose the right location. Sometimes people simply choose the location of the old closet to add a walk-in closet. However, this is not always the most effective use of space. Consider other locations for the walk-in closet. It is going to take up some room, and you can always remove the old closet to add more room, so make sure you pick the right location for the walk-in closet.
Check to make sure the walls you are using for the walk-in closet can support what you are putting on them. If you are going to put up shelves, and hold weight on them, make sure to use the right kind of drywall and timber in building the walls of the closet.
Add a door. This seems like a common sense thing, but sometimes people forget about doors in their planning, and just leave a gap, or plan for having all four walls and no door. A door is a necessary part of the closet.
Lastly, make sure it holds what you want it to hold. If you want a walk-in closet because they are bigger, then make sure it is actually bigger than your old closet.
The great thing about designing a closet from scratch is that it gets to meet your needs exactly. Focus on what you want out of the closet, and then design your closet to match.
