Getting organized can be overwhelming. Especially when that involves an entire family and all of their belongings. Where and how do you store all of the everyday items like clothing, sports gear, toys, backpacks and more? And how do you even get started? The answer is simple. You have to start with a direction in mind, which means you need a clear set of defined goals. Which areas of your home are the most troublesome? Which have the most need for organization and which will have the most impact on your daily life, once they are more functional? Giving this topic proper thought will allow you to prioritize and make a plan of action. Here is just one of the latest success stories from one of our clients who did just that.
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.

Custom closets designed by experienced professionals could be the ideal alternative to an expensive home remodel.

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.
