Choosing a home's cabinetry and furniture is not only about function and storage space but also about visual appeal. Walk-in closets, which are normally located in the master bedroom, are a good example of this. These spaces were usually used only for storing clothes, but modern closets now incorporate more unique features, transforming them into more personal and functional amenities.

As can be seen in the following projects, many designs start from this space to go on and plan the best location for the en-suite bathroom, for different and unusual furniture, such as a dressing table, or even a home office desk or armchair for reading, taking advantage of the quiet and reserved environment. As a result, closets are no longer reserved for keeping clothes but can be used for many other purposes. We have selected fifteen examples that successfully incorporate this feature into residential architecture.
