Clean Your Closet or Have Sex - Which Do You Prefer?


A recent poll featured on The Nate Berkus Show said that when people were asked which they like more - cleaning their closet or having sex - 31% said they preferred cleaning their closet.

Nate couldn't believe it and commented that these 31% were sharing their intimate moments with the wrong people. Funny or true?  Maybe both.

But what we're really talking about here is closets - and the all encompassing benefits of living with a closet that's organized so it works for you and the way you live your life.

Now, for those of you who don't know much about Nate, he's a total lover of closets. In fact, his is designed and organized so that it suits him as well as any of the custom shirts and suits that hang inside it.

He understands how much time and money he saves by having organized closets.

He also understands the positive impact and psychological benefits of having space that's beautifully designed and ordered so he knows what he has and can access it quickly and easily.

So, it's not about having lots and lots of stuff and then needing more places to stash it all.

It's about knowing who you are and what you like and then creating systems that work with those things.

And the solution can be as simple as putting in double hang and shelving, or it can be more elaborate, along the lines of Nate's closet (pictured above) that has been painted a custom color that he loves and includes custom pull-out drawers and angled shoe shelves.

So what do you think? Do you get great satisfaction from having a clean, organized space? Is your closet designed to suit your life and style? And is there balance between your organized life and your intimate life?

Because whether you land in the 31% or the 69%, it's a balanced life that we're all really wanting.


Loved this article--It is funny to think the bottom line is we are all wanting something...and maybe not getting it! Personally--wouldn't great fun in a great closet work for everyone?! 
Thanks for keeping your finger on the pulse of this wonderful industry and sharing it with us!

Hi-larious! But actually, now that I think about it in those terms, not surprising. Closets certainly lasts longer, (with Closet Works) there's a lifetime guaranty, a 90 day design guaranty so if there's something you didn't like, it can be tweaked. And an 110% "money back" guaranty for complete non-satisfaction...hmmmm.
