A Photogenic Way To Organize Your Shoe Collection

Even with a beautiful, newly installed closet system, your closet can still become cramped and crowded if you don’t handle organizing well. Here is a post that showcases an incredible idea for storing your vast shoe collection. Jessica Amento shows off her brilliant organizing idea for her shoe collection, where she takes a photo of each and every pair of shoes she owns and tapes it onto the box in which she keeps that particular pair. Whereas many of us simply stream our shoes about wherever we can find the space, this method allows you to neatly stack all of your shoes in your closet while still being able to find what you’re looking for. This is a perfect example of a way you can easily manage your home organization system without spending much money.

A Better Way To Organize Your Scarves

A scarf can often be the perfect accessory for an outfit, but keeping them organized in your closet can be a bit of a headache. Here’s a great idea for getting your scarf collection in order without spending much out of pocket. The great minds at bedifferectactnormal.com outline how you can utilize shower curtain rings in order to turn a normal hanger into a perfect scarf organizer. The best part about this project is that it takes as little time as it does money, but it’s sure to make your closet a more hospitable environment.

A Towel Rod Can Add That Extra Bit Of Space

If you’re looking to completely redo your closet or storage system, Closet and Storage Concepts is right there to help you every step of the way. Often times, though, homeowners are just looking to eke out a bit more storage room rather than completely updating their closet system. If this is the case in your home, check out this idea for using a simple towel rack to create another hanging surface in your closet. If you install a towel rack on the underside of a shelf in your closet, you’ll instantly have another surface to hang things from, immediately expanding your storage ability. And the best part? You can do it all with a few extra dollars and half an hour of free time.

If these DIY tips just aren’t enough to get your home organized, make sure to contact Closet and Storage Concepts for guidance on creating a storage system that can really make a difference in your home!

Four Incredible Design Touches For Luxury Closets

By Closet & Storage Concepts - July 31st, 2014

Closet & Storage Concepts Closet DesignersAt Closet and Storage Concepts, we help make your dream home a reality. From custom closet systems to incredibly detailed kitchen pantries, we take great pride in helping our clients craft affordable, elegant solutions to their home storage needs. Although most homeowners stick to classic closet configurations and storage systems, there are some people that prove to be a bit more adventurous when it comes to designing their ideal closet. We’ve shown you some incredible celebrity closets before, so in this post we’ve decided to showcase some incredible luxury touches that different homeowners have added to their master closets. Read on for a look into the world of designer closets, and hopefully you’ll find a bit of inspiration in these incredible closet ideas.

Go Classy With A Vintage Rolling Library Ladder

When it comes to combining luxury with nostalgia, few sights get it better than rolling library ladders. There’s just something about this classic design touch that resonates with people in a way few other furniture accents do. Although rolling ladders have traditionally been reserved for home libraries in luxurious mansions, we’re now seeing them pop up more and more in home closets. Giving homeowners a way to reach their high storage while adding a note of grace and class, outfitting your walk in closet with a rolling library ladder is sure to produce a glamorous and calming effect. Better yet, spring for a vintage library ladder to really cement that classic look in your closet. If you’re looking for a unique touch in your newly remodeled closet, a library ladder may be the perfect choice.

Try Motorized Rotating Storage Shelves

Here at Closet and Storage Concepts, we’re all about embracing new technology in the storage realm. Although we’ve all seen motorized tie racks and the like, it’s only been recently that we’ve seen some highly developed electronic rotating closet shelves. If you click on the link above, you’ll see just what some of these systems are starting to look like. Not only can a rotating shelving system increase your storage capacity, you can also start every morning pretending to be James Bond choosing his suit for the day! Innovative closet design is all about getting the most out of the space you have, making motorized shelving units a no brainer.

Open Up Your Space With See Through Shelving Or Walls

One luxury closet trend we’ve fallen in love with is see through shelving. Often crafted from Lucite, having shelving and drawers you can see through not only creates an added element of space and also allows you to easily find everything you’re looking for. Better yet, invisible shelving will give your closet a cool, futuristic look, which will surely impress all of your visitors. Many homeowners are also springing for glass doors and walls surrounding their master closet, as can be seen in the image linked to above. Like see through closet shelving, this design touch adds a luxurious feel while opening up the look in your bedroom.

When All Else Fails, Add A Chandelier 

If you’re really going for a luxury closet look, there are fewer instant fixes than installing a chandelier. Featured in many a celebrity closet, adding an elegant light fixture makes your closet feel less like storage space and more like its very own room. Although this kind of elegance isn’t for everyone, those shooting for an incredibly high-end feel can do a lot worse than a stunning chandelier. While the other ideas in the post also have a dimension of storage consideration, this one’s all about that elegant feel.

Whether you’re looking for a closet like Mariah Carey or a simply installing a better functioning pantry, Closet and Storage Concepts is sure to have what you’re looking for. Contact us today to get on the fast lane towards your dream home!

Ingenious Storage Solutions for Small Spaces

By Closet & Storage Concepts - June 17th, 2014

At Closet and Storage Concepts, we love a good challenge. One of the most common needs with our clientele is crafting storage solutions for smaller homes and apartments. Whether that means installing a gorgeous new murphy bed or renovating an out of date closet, Closet and Storage Concepts is sure to have the answer your home is looking for. We’ve put together a few ingenious and creative storage solutions designed with small spaces in mind. Read on to find a few ideas for getting the most out of your home’s floor plan!

Turn Your French Doors Into Shelving

When working with a small space, it can pay dividends to find storage solutions where you wouldn’t normally consider them. For instance, many one bedrooms typically have French doors separating the bedroom from the main living area. Anyone who’s tried to cram all of their belongings into a small apartment knows that any and every space needs to be utilized in order to get the most out of the arrangement. If you have French doors and need more storage room, consider attaching bookshelves to them. We’ve seen this strategy implemented many times, and not only does it create a great look, it also provides a storage solution if you’re low on closet space.

Make More Out of Your Staircase

When you’re stuck needing more storage in your home, every unused space starts to look like a viable solution. If you just don’t have the closet storage that you need in your home, but you have a fairly large staircase leading to your second floor, consider converting the space beneath the staircase into a shelving area. This post on Houzz showcases some truly inventive ways to create storage space in an area that would typically remain unused. If you’re willing to get creative with your staircase, the options are endless. Whether you install an entertainment center, some quality bookshelves, or simply a small storage nook, your staircase offers you the ability to be so much more than a way to get to the second floor.

Look Above You!

One of the dictates of getting more out of small spaces is to think up. Often times, this implies tall, narrow bookshelves and closets rather than stout spread out ones. Similarly, it always pays to consider the ways in which overhead storage systems can alleviate some of your need for space. If it’s the garage that you’re hoping to overhaul, many people have turned to ceiling racks to store some of their excess belongings. This post outlines a brilliant way to install tracks on your ceiling that can then easily hold multiple storage bins. This strategy isn’t just limited to your garage; there are all kinds of ways to apply the same solution inside your home, be it overhead cabinets in the bathroom or a headboard that features modest shelving at the top. Here’s a great collection of indoor overhead storage systems to give you an idea of just how much can be done with that ceiling space you’re not currently using.

At Closet and Storage Concepts, we’re constantly discovering smarter and better ways to solve your storage needs, whether that involves remodeling a tiny closet to offer more space or working with a small apartment that needs a more creative solution. If you’re in need of a better storage system, contact us today to discover the possibilities made possible by Closet and Storage Concepts!

Three Incredible Garage Man Caves

By Closet & Storage Concepts - May 30th, 2014

Here at Closet and Storage Concepts, we’ve gotten to work on some pretty amazing garage spaces over the years. Whether we’re installing a brand new storage system for a major gearhead or a set of extra closets for the fashionista that’s run out of shoe room, we’ve gotten to create some incredible solutions for homeowners looking to add some extra organization to their lives. It comes as no surprise that we’re always in awe of people that really take their garages to the next level, and we love getting to be a part of projects that challenge conventional notions of what a garage can be. In light of this, we’ve put together a list of a few truly exceptional man caves and garage getaways. Read on to find some inspiration for your dream garage!

Joe Pyle’s Climbing Garage 

It’s not uncommon for men to treat the garage as their own personal hideaway. We’ve had a hand in installing the closet system that finally gets a garage space right, but we’ve never been involved in a project quite like Joe Pyle’s garage. Located in Estes Park, Colorado, Joe’s an avid rock climber. As you can imagine, Colorado doesn’t have the best conditions for climbing all year round, especially during the often-brutal winters. Joe wasn’t prepared to spend the offseason just waiting for better weather, though, so he took it upon himself to craft a giant rock climbing wall inside of his garage. Click through the images above to see just how epic Joe’s project was. Though we’re not sure if he included closets to store his climbing gear, his indoor rock wall is still mighty impressive.

The Mechanic’s Dream

Any credible list of exceptional garages has to include one dedicated to that great garage tradition – the auto shop. We’ve installed plenty of storage systems for car enthusiasts to store their tools, but the garage linked to above is one of the finest we’ve ever seen. Built by architect Scott Hommas for a Seattle-area client, this behemoth of a carport comes in at 3,981 square feet. The homeowner, a professional Porsche racer, was looking to build a shrine to his love of everything automotive, and Hommas has certainly kept up his end of the bargain. Housing everything from restored vintage cars to a full-size helicopter, this man cave should have all of the grease monkeys out there salivating.

A Sports Fan’s Dream

We’ve installed plenty of closet solutions in order for mega-fans to store their collections, but this Florida garage is on another level entirely. Designed by Acoustic Innovations out of Boca Raton, this shrine to everything great about University of Florida football is a what fandom is all about. Showcasing memorabilia such as Emmitt Smith’s game-worn cleats and Jevon Kearse’s gloves, this garage also includes a big screen TV for watching everything Gators-related. Most of us may think of our garages as places for storing everything we don’t keep inside the home, but this U of F fan demonstrates that a little creativity can turn a typical space into something special.

Whether you’re a die-hard rock climber or an obsessive sports fan, Closet and Storage Concepts has everything you need to finally get your garage organized. Contact us today to find out just what solutions we have for getting your home where you want it to be.

When it comes to inspiration, there are some closets out there that really stand above the rest, and it’s no surprise that they tend to belong to celebrities and fashion experts.

Read on to find out how the rich and famous store their shoes and socks, and contact Closet and Storage Concepts if you’re looking for a similar solution.

Mariah Carey’s New York Shoe Compound

 Mariah Carey’s palatial closet is a thing of legend. Featured in an early edition of MTV’s Cribs, Carey’s closet is a master class in opulence and storage. Featuring bleachwood floors adorned with her monogram, Carey’s closet is perhaps best known for her shoe storage system, which houses close to 1,000 different pairs. The closet was designed by Mario Buatta, and resembles an Italian palace more than it looks like a standard closet. From gold-leaf gilding to marble columns, Mariah Carey’s incredible closet may not be the most reasonable option out there, but its sure to inspire your inner diva.

Ralph Lauren’s Incredible Man Cave

 It’s only fair that one of the world’s most recognized fashion designers has a closet to match his formidable reputation. Nestled in New York State’s Westchester County, Lauren’s closet mirrors the overall masculine rustic look of his country home. Featuring mahogany millwork and lots of aged leather, Lauren’s closet is as close to Ron Burgundy’s presumed aesthetic as you’re going to find. Not only is Lauren’s oversized closet outfitted with all kinds of manly touches, the clothing held within consists of riding boots, jean jackets, and torn vintage t-shirts. For anyone looking to highlight his brawny side, Lauren’s closet is a great place to start.

Nanette Lepore’s Shabby Chic Dressing Room

Nannette Lepore, a fashion designer whose clothes are championed by the likes of Kerry Washington and Eva Longoria, has turned her New York City loft’s closet into an extension of the rest of her home. Featuring a combination of flea-market décor and more glamorous touches, Lepore’s closet feels more like a respite than simply a storage system. Although the cascading glass chandelier may be the highlight of the room, there are also Victorian mirrors and Deco décor showcased throughout. If you’re interested in making your closet into your own special hideaway, Lepore’s closet is a great place to look for inspiration.

If you’re hoping to turn your closet into the kind of luxurious, well-organized space you can be proud of, contact Closet and Storage Concepts to find out just how incredible your dream closet can be. You may not have the cache of someone like Mariah Carey, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a closet that makes it feel like you do.

Open in Case of Zombie Apocalypse: Organizing Your Survival Closet

By Closet & Storage Concepts - April 15th, 2014

At Closet and Storage Concepts, we’re in the business of crafting all kinds of custom solutions for our customers’ storage needs. Be it a more versatile kitchen pantry or a well-defined entertainment system, we make sure to keep your individual concerns in mind when creating the perfect closet set up for your home. With the rise of television shows like The Walking Dead, we’ve noticed a heightened, if somewhat silly, interest in planning for a hypothetical zombie apocalypse. In the spirit of good fun, we’ve put together a few guidelines for setting up a survival closet in the small chance that a zombie apocalypse does find its way to our shores. Read on for a few tips on what you’ll need in case the undead show up at your door.

Food and Water Are an Obvious Must

In the off chance that the walking dead someday make a house call, you’ll want to have plenty of fresh water and non-perishable foods. Lucky for us zombies are more concerned with finding brains than canned beans, but you’ll still want to have as much canned goods on hand as possible. The same thing goes for bottled water, which will surely be in short supply once the undead are among us. Like any survival kit, make sure to focus on items high in nutritional value, including vegetables and canned fruit, so that after you’ve boarded up the windows to keep the hoard out you’ll be able to comfortably wait out the ensuing insanity.

If You Have to Leave The House, You’ll Need a Few Things

 In the off chance that you’re unable to keep the crowd of zombies out of your home, you’ll need to have a few other items in your survival closet or storage system. First off, charcoal tablets or water purification tables are a must for any apocalypse-wanderer, so you’ll want to have those on hand. Also, if you’re unable to bring much of your food supply with you, make sure to have seeds for easy to grow crops, like corn and zucchini. Your closet will also want to hold a fishing pole for finding nutrition on the road, as well as a small pan for cooking up the vittles you come across on your travels.

Rebuilding Civilization Takes The Right Tools

 Your survival closet is going to need to house not only tools for immediate survival, but also the right items for slowly rebuilding human civilization. This not only includes standard survival tools like an axe, flint and tinder, and a crowbar, you’ll also want to hang on to cultural relics. When you’re trying to get the human species up and running again, having a copy of Shakespeare will remind you of the world as it used to be. Furthermore, make sure to store a journal and pen, so that in the off chance you do end up subsumed by the undead horde, some future person will be able to find proof that you did everything you could to maintain your humanity.

At Closet and Storage Concepts, we always craft incredible solutions for your storage needs, be they apocalyptically-focused or not. Contact us today to learn about the storage system of your dreams, be it zombie-centric or not.

World Libraries With Incredible Storage Solutions

By Closet & Storage Concepts - March 31st, 2014

At Closet and Storage Concepts, North America’s premier custom closet and storage system outfitter, we’re always on the hunt for the coolest and most creative in storage concepts. From the pantries in large restaurants to the way film societies organize their archives, we love seeing impressive storage systems in action. Perhaps the most beloved and frequently impressive organization systems in the world belong to some of our greatest libraries, such as the endlessly awe-inspiring Library of Congress. In honor of this great storage system tradition, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite libraries from around the world, each one demonstrating the heights of organization we strive for at Closet and Storage Concepts. Read on for a global tour in magnificent storage concepts!

Shiba Ryotaro Memorial Museum

Named after the great Japanese post-war author, the Shiba Ryotaro is a marvel in melding design with organizational needs. The building, designed by Tadao Ando, is meant to mirror the inner working of an author’s mind, hence the incredible walls and walls of books. There’s something incredibly immersive about the book storage system at the library, a feat reflected in the sheer number of books housed in a small space. This is perhaps what‘s most impressive about the storage concept at the Shiba Ryotaro Memorial Museum: storage has been effectively married to concept, making for a truly unique experience.

Mafra National Palace Library

The National Palace Library is a treasure held within the city of Mafra, Portugal. Portugal is home to a number of well-known libraries, but the Mafra National Palace Library is the most interesting to everyone at Closet and Storage Concepts due to its particularly ingenious storage system.  When built, not only did the architect responsible make sure to create a book shelving system that accommodated a major collection, he also made sure to leave room behind the books for a colony of bats. The bats were used to keep the library vermin and insect free, and would be released every night from their space behind the books. Our closet systems don’t typically house flying animals, but we still have to applaud this remarkable system.

The George Peabody Library

Housed in the world-renown Peabody Institute of Music at John Hopkins University, the George Peabody Library is one of the finest in America. Containing over 300,000 volumes, the Peabody Library  is a perfect example of marrying form and function in the world of storage systems. Featuring six tiers of cast iron columns, decorative railings, and gold-leaf embellishments, the Peabody Library demonstrates that there is certainly a way to make organization beautiful, which is something we always strive for at Closet and Storage Concepts.

Liyuan Library

Designed by famed Chinese Architect Li Xiaodong Atelier, the Liyuan Library is truly a sight to behold. Located in the small village of Huairou on the outskirts of Beijing, the Liyuan Library was meant to be an example of how to make a storage system blend in seamlessly with its environment. In the same way that Closet and Storage Concepts makes sure to design and implement closet systems that work holistically within its environment, the Liyuan Library is composed of panels of twigs in order to reflect the natural surroundings of the village. Beautiful in its simplicity and elegance, the Liyuan Library is a case study in working your surroundings into the design of a storage system.

At Closet and Storage Concepts, we keep in mind all of the great storage and design ideas reflected in this list in order to craft personalized closets and organization systems for our customers. We may not build bat caves behind your bookshelves, but we’ll make sure to create effective and  visually stunning closet and storage systems for all your needs.

 

Three Incredible Treasures Found During A Remodel

By Closet & Storage Concepts - February 28th, 2014

Here at Closet and Storage Concepts, we do work on a wide variety of homes and offices, from early 20th Century apartments to brand new condominiums. Throughout our time working on some of the older properties we’ve had the pleasure of updating, we’re constantly surprised by the amount of objects often hidden within the closet walls of these old homes. From long lost family photos to early porcelain dolls, there are often tiny treasures stuffed away in the long forgotten areas of an antique house. In the spirit of these discoveries, we’ve put together a list of some of the coolest items found during remodels of old homes. Read on to see what kind of treasures may be lurking behind your walls.

That’s Some Expensive Insulation

David Gonzalez, a general contractor in Hoffman, Minnesota, decided that it was time to update his master bedroom, including taking out a wall to expand his closet. As a contractor in an area with older homes, Gonzalez was used to seeing old newspaper used as insulation in homes. When he found an original copy of Action Comics #1 stuffed into the walls, to say he was surprised would be quite the understatement. The issue in which Superman makes his debut, Gonzalez’s copy of Action Comics recently sold at auction for $175,000. Considering he bought the home for around $10,000, it’s safe to say Gonzalez came out on top in this one.

A Head Above The Rest

When spring comes along, most of us find ourselves doing some deep cleaning, be it giving the kitchen a good once over or reorganizing our closets. When Stephane Gabet, a French journalist, went to clean out the attic of his newly purchased home, he found something slightly stranger than most: a 400-year-old skull. Gabet, unsure of what exactly to do with this ancient head, took it to a prominent university in Paris to get to the bottom of just how old his new find was. Turns out, not only was the skull over 400-years-old, it was also determined to have belonged to none other than King Henry IV, who ruled France until 1610. Although we don’t recommend storing the remains of famous monarchs in your attic, it must be at least a little fun for Gabet to bring his discovery out every Halloween.

Bottom’s Up

Patricia Hill purchased a turn-of-the-century mansion outside of Pittsburgh with the intention of turning it into a five star bed and breakfast. While doing some extensive renovations on the property, she uncovered some proof that the former inhabitants had been fond of a drink or two: nine cases of revered Old Farm Pure Rye Whiskey buried in the basement. A pre-Prohibition distillery, Old Farm produced some of the most beloved American Whiskey in history, and Hill’s trove was estimated to be worth nearly $800,000 dollars. Things didn’t turn out perfectly for Hill, though: after spending the winter vacationing someplace warm, she returned to find that her caretaker had imbibed nearly 52 bottles of the historic hooch, putting the homeowner out nearly $200,000 dollars.

Although we can’t promise we’ll unearth any buried treasure in your home, we can assure you that we’ll put in a closet or storage system that’ll make your home the star of the neighborhood. Call Closet and Storage Concepts today to find out just how transformative one of our closet systems can be in your home.

People that take advantage of Stylebook can upload every piece in their closet and then use the app to plan future outfits and make packing list. Best of all, there’s a “worn history log” that tracks every time you wear a specific article of clothing, so that the next time you have a date you can be sure it isn’t an outfit you’ve already worn.

My Gear Pack – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mygearpack.android.mgp

Furthermore, My Gear Pack has a library installed with all of the other users’ gear, which allows you to browse equipment you may need but don’t have yet. If you’re an avid outdoorsman or woman, My Gear Pack is sure to help make all of your trips that much easier.

Doxo Mobile – https://www.doxo.com/

One of the major contributors to closet clutter has always been bills, receipts, and other filed paperwork. With the advent of smartphones, consumers are now able to make this space-filler a thing of the past. Doxo, a company initially formed in 2011, is an app that connects all of your online bill profiles and accounts in one place and under one password in an attempt to simplify the bill paying process. Even better, Doxo files all of your paperwork digitally, so that not only do you no longer have to organize all of your bills and paperwork, but you also no longer have to deal with physical copies of them. Doxo is a godsend for anyone looking to get rid of that filing cabinet taking up half of your hallway closet, and it’s a great way to make your life better organized and easier to manage.

Coupled with a new closet designed by Closet and Storage Concepts, these apps will help you on your way to organizing an amazing closet as we head into the New Year. There’s nothing like starting with a clean slate, so let Closet and Storage Concepts help you find the solution for all your home organization needs.
