And we're not just saying that because we're "in the business".
According to The Business Insider, an online news publication, "Luxury home buyers say this (closets) is the amenity they can't live without." And that comes as a result of a survey conducted on Homes.com.
Of course, we love that!
It makes us very happy to have our clients fall in love with their closets and never be able to live without a custom closet system again.
According to The Business Insider, "Among the 250 people surveyed, a whopping 75.9 percent chose a luxury closet and suite as their #1 desired amenity."
So in a celebration of summer and the joy that an organized closet brings - we just want to share a few personal faves from our own client collection of closet amenities people can't live without.

Do we stay or do we go?
A surprising question that a lot of home owners are finding that they are asking themselves right now.
Do you truly need to move right now or are you looking for a change?
If change is the answer, here are a couple of small change suggestions that make a huge impact:
Change the colors - We all spend most of our time in our kitchen and bath areas so it makes sense to focus on those areas first. Small changes in the kitchen and bath can make a dramatic impact. By simply applying a new paint color and updating hardware, you, the homeowner can transform the look and feel of a room. Consider adding a touch of warmth by using a soft finish with an elegant appearance such as brushed bronze.
Change the hardware - When selecting new hardware find a finish that adds a contrast to your current cabinets. The hardware is the jewelry for your cabinets so it should stand out.
Swap out the backsplash - For the kitchen it may also be a good time to add the backsplash that you have always wanted. Drama does not need to cost a ton. Find a texture that really compliments your personal taste. Try something new. How about weathered barn wood for an old world feel.
Stainless steel can be a real industrial show stopper for a more modern feel. No matter your taste simple changes can satisfy your hunger change.

We have lots of clients who love the environment and want to make the world a better place (why else would they have such fabulously organized closets???).
And until recently, if they want to use ecco friendl materials to create those closets, the door and drawer profiles were limited to flat, flat and flat.
But now, we've got options and we're so excited!
Whether traditional or contemporary, we can now create closets that are environmentally friendly as well as style friendly.
