I love the closets in luxury homes. The space is evolving quickly in new luxury homes and it’s just a lot of fun to see what people are doing with closet design.

Sometimes you see a sitting area, a stacked washer and dryer, a coffee maker and microwave and, of course, gorgeous custom wood cabinets. Having a little exercise room off the closet is becoming very popular. The innovation in closets is just fun to watch.

The largest closet I’ve heard of was in a new estate built in Paradise Valley where the “dressing room” was 1,500 square feet. Cool!

“We don’t call them closets anymore,” says Los Angeles-based contractor Gary Drake, who says the preferred term for such spaces among the designers and clients he works with is now “dressing room.”
