Alyssa and her husband, Craig, were very excited to move into their new home. Needing help with unpacking and organizing, they had been working with Cait from the Neat Method in Philadelphia. During this process they realized that their bedroom closets were not going to be sufficient for their storage needs.

Some people who have an interest in closet organization want something more sophisticated, in a design sense, than simple shelving and hanging sections. Quite often, and especially in large walk-in closets, custom closet cabinetry is a very desirable option. An experienced and technically capable custom closet company can produce unique designs that address the wants and needs of a particular client. Truly custom solutions for varied or unusual requirements may eclipse the scope of readily available cabinetry. Standard cabinets may function well in some applications, but not necessarily in a closet environment. In addition to interesting and highly specific functionality, a well-designed custom cabinetry solution will afford many alternatives for materials. The diverse collection of options includes latest high gloss and a wide selection of beautiful and interesting patterns and wood grains, with finishes and textures that create a statement all on their own.
Moving from one home to another can be a stressful time. In addition to the packing and planning, there is always the concern that you will not have enough storage or the right type of storage to ensure belongings are organized in a way that makes everyday tasks easy and efficient.

Selecting the right closet accessories is often minimized when focusing on other elements throughout the custom closet process. However, they play a significant role in making your closet space organized and functional. For example, having enough of the right hooks in the proper location and hung at the appropriate height in your mudroom for jackets and backpacks will make the difference between them being used or items being dropped on the floor. Just as important is selecting the style and finish that complements your existing décor. Maybe you are more traditional and prefer an oil-rubbed bronze finish and raised panels with curved lines. Or perhaps your room is decorated with the trending new finish of matte gold, paired with the simplicity of straight lines and geometric patterns. Bringing new elements into your home must be in harmony with your style and preferences.
Maximizing the available space and finding the most efficient way to store and organize everyday items is important to the modern homeowner. Many consider home renovations simply to add additional space and increase their storage. However, before beginning a construction project, consider more cost effective options for saving space and revitalizing living areas. Custom closets designed by experienced professionals could be the ideal alternative to an expensive home remodel.
