Lisa and her husband Richard were building their dream home and knew they would need something more substantial than the standard and basic wire closet systems they had in their previous house. Wanting to stay fiscally responsible, they did not think they could entertain the possibility that even one custom closet, let alone multiple closets in various rooms, could fit into their budget and have all the features the entire family needed. That is until they met Jill from The Closet Works, who started the process of turning their vision into a reality.

So what are closet accessories and how do you know which ones are best for your needs? Here are some practical ideas that will ensure you love your system for many years.
Whatever your aspirations, nobody wants their garage to be an unorganized mess.

However you decide to remodel or utilize the space, these tips and hacks will help you get started. With a little planning your garage can be useful and the envy of all your neighbors.
Chapter 2 - Design & Installation Capability Look For Experience A lot of “free-lance” closet providers tend to downplay the experience factor when discussing design and installation. Big mistake! Anybody can throw up a couple of rods and a few shelves and claim to have created a custom closet design. It takes an experienced Designer to make the most of your space and create a custom solution that is efficient, maximizes the available space and is aesthetically pleasing while creating a truly personal solution for your individual wants and needs. For example, it is important to know how to size sections for various items, how much clearance is required, how to deal with impediments such as access panels, attic stairs, utility boxes and the like. Equally important is the knowledge that only comes with experience about how to specify for various types of construction - are your walls plaster, concrete block, or drywall and why does it make a difference? What kinds of studs are supporting your walls and on what centers? The list goes on, and there are lots of significant variables that should be taken into consideration when choosing a custom closet company.
When it comes to closet design ideas there are a lot out there to choose from. Depending on your level of experience with home organization projects, you may already know some strategies and tricks of the trade. Other elements of the overall design and how it results in overall usability might need to be brought to your attention by professionals with years of expertise in the field to ensure that the space is made functional for you and your specific needs. Ideas that will make getting ready for the day easier, keep everything visible and easily accessible, and possibly even maximize space.
