Closet Works Organization Solutions #2 - Media Center with Fireplace

 

In the second part of our 3 part series, Organization Solutions, we take a close look at a completed Closet Works bedroom design solution. 

The Challenge

scheme

The client came to Closet Works asking for a storage shelving/solution that will fit a fireplace and have space for a flat screen TV, while still having plenty of extra display shelving and other forms of storage. 

 

The Solution

lala

The Closet Works design team came up with a creative solution which incorporated twelve small display shelves, two large openings for displaying bigger pieces, one doored cabinet, and three drawers for added storage space.

Closet Works Organization Solutions #1 - Bedroom

 

In the first of our 3 part series, Organization Solutions, we take a close look at a completed Closet Works bedroom design solution. 

The Challenge

Organization Solutions Bedroom (1)

The Closet Works Design team was approached with a full bedroom storage project. Some requirements were space for a desk and plenty of storage. Also, with a bed put in the middle, some of the system had to be suspended so the rail is not visable behind the headboard.

 

The Solution

Organization Solutions Bedroom (1)1

The solution here is a bright and organized bedroom space! Frosted glass was added to give the room a more open feel and so the system wouldn't look too heavy. There was also plenty of drawers and shelving added for extra storage. The drawers actually look like end tables!

From Dreary to Dreamy: Custom Closet Perfection (with Photos!)

 

This closet space went from Fab to Fabulous! The customer had a current plain, no frills closet in this space overlooking her gorgeous master bath. She asked that it go from Home Depot to her own personal boutique. After working with her over the years on the rest of her home, we knew what she was going for. It was a challenge, as there were a variety of angles and obstacles to deal with, we had to use every inch to our advantage. We had to accommodate for 100+ shoes, numerous designer handbags, sports wear to formal wear, a floor safe and a vanity area. All of this and while still being practical.

We did a variety of different and difficult design features. We used the different ceiling heights to our advantage, by accenting them with unique crown molding features and countertops. We used clear glass inserts to give it a clean look, while keeping the open feel of the closet. The lines and detail in each area show the craftsmanship of a beautifully finished room.  

describe the image

Our design featured the following custom details. The island not only hosts drawers for jewelry and garments, but we also built a beautiful end piece for all the gorgeous belts and accent pieces. The shoe area area wraps around a corner with ceiling height differences. We took advantage of one corner and added shoe rollouts so the shoes can be easily accessed. Shelving above the hang areas allows the customer to not only display her designer pieces, but also serves as a dual purpose of keeping these pieces with the articles of clothing they coordinate with. We added doors to an upper corner piece, and with the help of a 180 degree hinge, the door easily flips all the way open to access the corner. We built a custom cabinet especially for a large safe, so that it can be hidden. My favorite feature is that all of the custom handles and knobs coordinate with the light fixtures, valances and bath accessories in the bath below bringing it all together - thanks to the interior designer. No detail went unnoticed.

Even though you enter through an absolutely gorgeous master bath, as you wind up the spiral staircase and enter the closet, words can not express how absolutely breath taking this personal boutique is. It was a long haul and a very trying space, and the end result was well worth it.

People Are Saying the Nicest Things about Us!

 

At Closet Works we love nothing more than giving our customers a memorable experience and an exceptional organizational system. That is why it motivates us, especially during these long, dragging winter months, to see such heartwarming compliments as the one Anthony has given us below. Thank you Anthony and thank you to all our customers! We love you!!

“Our closets are so nice I could actually live in there, so maybe I should just stay in there. But I'm coming out long enough just to review them.

I was really against spending the extra money because we had already paid for our closets with our new house. Problem was that the new closets were going to suck and there was no way to get a credit on that. So we worked with our salesperson and came up to a fair quote for doing all of our closet and storage space. We had a total of 7 spaces organized by Closet Works. There were 4 closets, one kitchen pantry, one laundry room and my Man Storage Space.

The Closet Works crew moved fast and got everything installed quickly. They even had to cut a hole for the gas line for our dryer and it still looked neat. As a guy I really do not care about how a closet looks. I just care if I can hang my clothes and hide [stuff] in there when company comes over. I really hate it when company opens up a closet to look inside. Hello that is not part of the tour...get out of the closet! Ha!

My Man Storage Space is less Man and more what kind of crap my wife can throw in there. Every time I look in that closet there is more stuff unrelated to my life. Like wrapping paper, Christmas stuff, luggage (not mine), etc...

Everything is really nice. Not only did they add in places to hang clothes but also added shelves for folded clothes, hooks for hats, drawers to store stuff like jewelry. They created more space for us to store more crap...I mean our valuable things we wear. Ha!

So if you are moving into a new place or building a place I would give them a call and get a free quote. Our [designer] was nice enough to actually come out to our new construction and look at our blueprints. She even took measurements before presenting us with a detailed quote. Everything was handled very professional and installed in a timely manner. Once we had a date set they showed up on time and rocked the build out.

Now I just need to figure out how to reclaim my Man Closet. I am thinking about installing a bed in there with a TV. Maybe I should call [Closet Works] and see if they have one of those pull down wall cots like in a ship or something. See I am going back into the closet one way or another.”

Designing and Installing An "Out of Sight" Home Office/Guest Room (with Photos!)

 

We recently helped a client with a custom project for their home office/guest room. This very creative client made unique requests that provided us with new and exciting design challenges. The requests included: 

  • A queen size wall bed with a television attached to the outside of the bed
  • Two pivoting desks that would slide into a compartment on the side of the room when the bed was needed
  • A countertop for the desk leg compartment that could fold down when the leg was in and fold up to be flush with the rest of the counter when desk was out
  • Maximum storage for files and office items as well as space for linens for the bed
  • Locked storage cabinet for firearms
describe the image

We knew that this would be a very custom wall bed/home office project for us. So, we enlisted two of our talented engineers to help make this project happen. Together we came up with a custom design to present to our client.  After a few tweaks, we had a final plan for their home office. We engineered and built a curved leg with wheels that allowed the support leg to move smoothly on carpet. The final installation was beautifully completed by one of our talented installers. To complete the look of the room, we included some designer details such as frosted glass, LED lighting and attractive hardware components.
