Advanced Features and Design: Adding an Island to Your Walk-In Closet




What you learned:

Getting Started:

  • Before considering adding an Island to your design, the recommended space needed in your walk-in closet is 116” X 160”
  • To add an island, click on the “Draw Your Own” button in the Layout Screen.
  • Click “Continue.”
  • You have now entered the Advanced Layout view. Notice that your walls and buildable areas are already defined.
  • Click “Add Island,” located in the upper menu.
  • The island will populate on the bottom right of your screen. Simply click and drag it to the desired location within your closet.
  • Click “Save & Continue.”


Customizing Your Island:

  • Once in the design tool, navigate to the right side of your screen to the “Layout” option and edit your island by clicking “Front” or “Back.”
  • Now, you can add sections to your island. Click the plus sign in either the Front or Back of your island.
  • Navigate to the right side of your screen to the “Layout” option and select the template you’d like to include.
  • The sections you configure for one side of the island will be automatically mirrored on the other side of the island.
  • To have a different template on either island, click on the one you would like to edit (the front or back), select the template and replace it with a different one using the “Layout” panel on your screen.
  • Navigate to the 3D view to see how your island looks in your space.
  • If at any time you would like to further personalize your island, navigate back to the 2D view and edit.
