You’ve got a beautiful entrance to your house—your front porch is decorated for the season and when you open the door, an elegant area rug and lighting fixture greet visitors. But if you’re like many people, the only time someone walks through your front entrance is if they’ve never been to your house before. The entryway everyone uses is most likely closer to your garage or on the side of your house—through the mudroom. Your mudroom is a catch-all space for outdoor gear, mail, work and school bags, shoes, purses, and anything else you use just about every day. Chances are it is not well-organized, which can make it hard to find exactly what you need before you run out the door.
The chill of late fall and winter is finally here, which means bundling up in down parkas, scarves, hats and gloves. When snow falls in a few short weeks, you’ll add winter boots to the mix, too.
When it comes to closet organization, finding a place for all your clothes seems to be the focus. Shoes often get neglected—they’re an afterthought in storage solutions. Instead of having a spot in your closet, they get thrown carelessly into a pile on the floor or shoved in a cheap shoe bag on the back of the door. Sometime they don’t even make it into the closet—they’re stashed near the front door or in the middle of the floor somewhere.
The only thing better than spending the day shopping for new clothes is having a luxurious place to store them all. Whether you live in a house with multiple walk-in closets or a studio apartment with very limited closet space, custom wardrobes are a great option to store all of your clothes, shoes, jewelry and accessories. Custom wardrobes can maximize the amount of space you have while giving you a ton of design options like glass and patterned doors, shelving and even lighting.
Have you ever considered a wardrobe instead of a custom closet? Some closets are so tiny that even the smartest improvement still can't offer the storage space you need. And in some homes, particularly older ones, there may be no closets to improve at all. That's where a wardrobe saves the day. A custom wardrobe design from the Closet Works can be anything that you want. It's a perfect alternative to reach-in or walk-in closets, especially if the storage you have is chronically short on size and function.
Can home storage solutions really make life better? You bet they can -- at least when they're designed with your lifestyle in mind. Perhaps you struggle to find the right outfit in the morning, only to pull it from the closet a wrinkled mess. Or maybe household bills get scattered and you need a place to keep them organized along with other important papers and document. Then again, maybe the tangle of cables draped from your entertainment center makes you cringe. If this sounds like an episode of "This is Your Life," you've come to the right place.
