NYC Apt Closet Solution - should I add walk-in closet?

5 years ago

I'm in the process of renovating a 1 BR apartment in New York City. The floorplan for the bedroom is included above. In addition to the bedroom closets there is only a coat closet and pantry closet. I've already demolished the walls shaded in the photo (the closet dividing wall) but now I'm considering bumping out the wall 2' so that the area where the existing closets are will have a depth just shy of 4' and be "walk-in".

I think it'd be cleaner looking to extend the wall the entire width of the room. With this expanded storage there would be no other storage furniture in the BR (just a bed and two nightstands).

Do you think this is a good use of space? Will resulting bedroom feel too small?
