Closets Las Vegas, a premier builder of various smart storage systems, have crafted a wide range of closets for residential and commercial clients. Following are some of the modern closet design ideas to inspire your creativity.

What is Modern Closet Design?

What makes a closet modern? Is it the color combination? The decor? Features? Style? Well, no one element could define ‘modern’ as it’s a combination of these things to create a contemporary masterpiece. The modern closet design hinges on the following:


A minimalist interior design often only includes essential and simple elements. The lines and forms are clean, and the colors are often monochromatic. This approach aims to create an uncluttered and relaxing atmosphere.


Besides aesthetics, modern designs emphasize productivity features that help make life more convenient. These features are often tailored based not just on the homeowner’s daily needs but also on the requirements of the things stored.


Modern closets may highlight functionality, but it doesn’t compromise style and elegance. The colors are coordinated and the materials are polished.


Over time, your storage needs may change. Soon you may require a bigger space for your clothes and accessories. Or you want to modify the shelves for a newer look. Built-in cabinets won’t allow you to do this, but a modern closet shelving system would as they are adjustable. The flexibility of the shelves lets you give your walk-in closet a revamp without spending more. This practical feature is highly favorable to those who are on a budget.

Elements of Modern Closet

Modern closets are the answer to the homeowners’ – who are also professionals – daily needs. With your busy schedule, modern storage spaces can save you a great deal of time. Easy access also won’t add to your stress. Even stay-at-home members of the household can appreciate these characteristics.

Smart shelving systems

As a professional, you spend time away from home meeting different people on different occasions. A modern walk-in closet with full-hang, half-hang, and double-hang shelves will help you prepare for any event with ease. This kind of structure gives you a neat place to separate your shirts, dresses, blouses, and pants in an orderly fashion. It’s up to you if you would like your hanging rods electronic or manual, but for most, the manual already does the trick.

Some shelving systems feature either manual hanging rods, and others have electric pull-out ones.

Boutique-inspired shoe racks behind glass doors

It was enough back then for shoes to have a simple, almost unnoticed rack. Over time, people started to give shoes equal importance. Hence the beautiful shoe cabinets in modern closet spaces that look straight out of a boutique. It’s also now common to have LED lighting and glass doors for a more beautiful display.

Productivity features for added convenience

There are a lot of beneficial additions in a modern closet system. Most modern luxury walk-in closets today include hampers. Pull-out hampers serve as a reservoir for used clothing or bed sheets. Some modern master closets even include a pull-out ironing board or a sliding mirror to save space.

Dramatic lighting

In modern closets, the function of lighting is not just to illuminate dark areas. It also gives the entire room a dramatic effect. But rather than use posh chandeliers, modern closet designs feature discreet puck lights or led lighting bars in many areas including the wardrobe and shoe rack.

How is Modern Closet Design Different From Traditional Closet Design?

The 21st century has taught people to experiment with home designs. Rather than stick to one theme, you have a choice to mix and match. Homeowners often pick a combination of traditional and modern style from the design spectrum. And sometimes, it’s tricky to separate the two design concepts. There are features standard in traditional design that can be used in a modern set-up and vice versa. But what is the difference between a traditional and modern closet design?

Traditional is Always Classy

Traditional designs give you a sense of luxury with elaborate décor and richer color palettes. Elegance and consistency define traditional style. In a traditional walk-in closet, you will likely find art pieces, draperies, and antique furniture giving the room a vintage feel.

Interior design experts emphasize symmetry and curving lines when talking about traditional closet designs. Among the common textures are metal (silver, gold, bronze), leather, and wood. Overall, the traditional closet is elegant and warm.

Modern Closet Design Equals Elegant Simplicity

The modern walk-in closet owes its light and comfy feel to the neutral palette and use of natural light.  Even the darker shades offer a relaxing and spacious ambiance if done right. Such an environment is what you need to forget the stressful day ahead or after work.

But it’s not just the colors. Homeowners lean towards uncluttered spaces that could provide them a respite. Add the convenience that the functionality features offer. These features can range from ample storage to adjustable shelves to anything that may be essential to your daily needs.
