Room Conversion: One Way To Create Your Dream Closet Space

The best way to convert unused space into a storage solution.

What Is a Room Conversion?

Room conversion is when you take a spare room you aren’t using and turn it into a walk-in closet. If your closet isn’t big enough to store your wardrobe, or if you want a dressing room, a room conversion is a great potential option.

Opt for a room conversion if:

  • You have an unused bedroom. Empty nesters who love where they live and don’t need all the extra bedrooms can turn the unused space into an ideal dressing room.
  • You have an unused sitting room. Many homes have sitting rooms attached to the main bedroom, but they are often unused. You can turn them into storage space to increase value.

Are Room Conversions Permanent?

This is up to you. For example, we can relocate a bedroom door to flow through the primary bedroom, making it a permanent change. But in some cases, the added shelving can be removed when the number of bedrooms and resale of the home is a concern.

The Benefits Of Converting A Room Into A Closet

As custom space design experts, we can work with any space in your house. Your space doesn’t need to have traditional ceilings, be spacious, or be a separate room. We can make any space you have work for your needs. For instance, you can organize your home space to avoid overcrowding your bedroom closet with all your clothes.

If the room is spacious enough, we can install an island where you can put numerous drawers and shelves or built-in hampers. It can be a room to showcase your shoes and purses that you can not see or access. You can create a dressing room with full-length mirrors, a bench seat, vanity, and jewelry.

How Long Does It Take To Convert A Room?

The room conversion process is similar to our typical design process:

  • First, we will measure and design a closet that fits your needs. We will discuss how you want to use the space, and what features and accessories you like.
  • The initial design process typically takes about an hour, depending on the size and complexity of the space.
  • Once approved, we will place the order, and the current lead times are about 4-6 weeks. Most bedroom conversion installations take a day, but some may require more time.

What Features Can I Get In A Room Conversion?
