Bowers Design Build conceives luxe his-and-her closets in McLean

While reimagining the primary suite in a McLean home, Bowers Design Build paid special attention to the owners’ cramped and dysfunctional shared closet, as his-and-her wardrobes were at the top of the wish list. “The home had enough space for everything,” avers principal Wilma Bowers, “but it wasn’t configured in a way that met the clients’ lifestyle.” A little-used sitting room was a disorganized dumping ground; adding a wall and shifting the door location allowed the design team to repurpose it as a walk-in closet for the wife. The existing one—stylishly revamped—became the husband’s wardrobe. Bowers tapped California Closets to design and orchestrate both closets’ storage systems. Custom built-ins feature easy-access shelving, drawers, rods and glass-front maple cabinets. A blue-and-white-palette enhances the wife’s domain, while his cabinets are stained dark gray. Both sport center islands with quartz countertops along with traditional crown moldings and trim. Eye-catching chandeliers lend pizzazz.
