Many older homes lack large closets. This stately old home on Chicago's lakefront had an old fashioned sleeping porch across the back of the building. Intended to ensure a comfortable night's rest by catching breezes off Lake Michigan in an era before air conditioning, the old porch had seen little use in recent years. Closet Works helped the homeowners to repurpose the entire space as a custom dressing room/closet, adding a modern function to an outdated room. This also solved the closet crunch in their historic home. It now serves as a calming private retreat with custom ammenities fit for a queen.
Whether closet, dressing room, bedroom, pantry, rec room, laundry area, garage or other project, Closet Works has the expertise to transform your storage needs into a flourish of style and beauty. Each design and organization project is approached with the drive, passion and attention to detail that turns every custom storage solution into a work of art. This custom closet design was created by repurposing an old fashioned sleeping porch that was no longer practical — transforming a little used space into a private retreat. Vintage charm is retained through the reuse of the old flooring and many original details. A sophisticated monochromatic pallet, anchored by our portabella ivory finish, keeps this closet and dressing room light and elegant, while serving all the homeowners storage needs. An island style cabinet, with dividing wall, separates the dressing room area from the walk-in closet. The custom closet organization system features a lighted hutch unit with glass panel doors and glass shelves, enhancing the airy feeling developed through the color scheme. The hutch includes locking drawers to secure precious jewelry and valuables, plenty of shelving and hanging areas for different length clothing.
