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.
When customizing a closet system, it is really easy to get caught up in the measurements, colors and style of the project. The one design element that tends to get overlooked and can make a closet truly functional is the accessories. They play a significant role in organizing the items in your closet so they are easy to store and accessible when needed. 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.
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.
It’s easy to spot when your organizational system isn’t working. Things are difficult to reach, the space is too small for what you’re storing or you are always rummaging through things because they aren’t logically grouped. But sometimes, the warning signs that your space needs a little help, are a little more subtle. Small things happen slowly over time and go unnoticed at first, but overall have a large impact on our happiness and comfort. Here are some stressful states that may have rooted themselves while you were busy with life, and how you can resolve them.
Cindy Gargano and her husband moved into their home in 2007. Their master bedroom was on the small side and their His and Hers reach-in closets and dressers were inadequate for their needs. Their clothes were exploding out of their drawers, making it difficult to find things and they were tripping over items left on the floor. They wanted to get rid of the stress caused by having to search for things at the last minute, when they’re walking out of the door.
According to realtors, a common concern for potential home buyers is ensuring that there is a sufficient amount of closet space to hold all of their belongings. Having an understanding of your storage needs (what items you plan to store and how you like them organized) will ensure that your new space is not only maximized, but in a manner that is best suited for your everyday needs.
