Expensive Homes Usually Have Big Walk-In Closets

By Sarah Poyert

Women love closets and the bigger they are the better. If you ever walk through an open house that has a big master closet, you will hear the woman get all excited about the different things she can do with it. The guy, on the other hand, will most likely show little interest. What this means is that women are usually in charge of the closets in the house and they are always looking for ideas on how to use them more effectively.

Only the bigger more expensive homes used to have walk in closets but now they are becoming more common in all types of homes. If you do have a large master bedroom closet, you will probably be looking for ways to manage the extra space. Typically women will have no problem figuring out what to do with all the extra room, as they own a lot more clothes and shoes than a man.

Anytime a woman walks into a big closet, you can almost hear her mind thinking of all the ways she would like to use the space. On the other hand, a man will have little interest in a closet of any size. This means that walk in closets are good for both parties because the woman will want to take over the space and the man wont care. This will make them both happy.

If you have a big closet, you will need to come up with a good way to get the proper lighting in it. Many walk in closets now days are so big they are almost another room and need their own lighting. Installing overhead lighting such as track lighting always looks good and will highlight certain parts of the closet. You can also bring your own lamps into the closet as long as there is an outlet in it. Usually a bigger closet will come with one overhead light but often times that light is inadequate to do the job.

Ultimately, identifying what space belongs to who is the most important part and the woman will most likely get most of the closet. From there, make an agreement that you can each do whatever you want with your allotted space. This will undoubtedly help save the relationship as far as closets go!
