One of the most common complaints that Boston homeowners have about their closets is that there just isn’t enough space for all of their belongings. Every square inch is at a premium, and by the time you’ve stored your shoes, bags, larger accessories, and clothes, you’re out of room for the little things that tend to find their way into the closet.
Closet and Storage Concepts Boston has quite a few closet solutions that will save you time, but one of our favorites is the closet island. From a design standpoint, these freestanding surfaces can match the rest of your closet, or offer a little accent in terms of color and material. But more importantly, closet islands are one of the most versatile storage solutions because you can completely customize them to your own unique needs and habits. While closet islands almost always feature a series of drawers and shelves with a flat, table-like surface, they can also be designed with cushions for sitting, fold out features, or anything else you can imagine! Read on to learn more about what makes this simple tool an essential addition to your custom closet.
A Place To Dress
Rather than shuttling your clothes from the closet to the bedroom so you can lay everything out on the bed, a closet island gives you a clean surface for putting your outfit together. Plus, you can install an island at any height; use it as an extra area for accessories, keys, and other essentials, or let it function as a place to sit down as you pull on your shoes. And of course, Closet and Storage Concepts Boston can help you find space for a mirror so that your closet truly becomes a luxury dressing room.
A Place To Plan
Those spare moments in the morning are precious, and it’s always a shame to waste them on changing your outfit for the fifth time in a row. If you’re the kind of person who likes to plan an outfit the night before (or that’s the kind of person you want to be), closet islands provide a great space to pre-select shoes and accessories for the next day. Set up your outfit on the flat surface or custom hooks, and thank yourself in the morning when you don’t have to think too hard about what you’re going to wear.
A Place For Storage
More than being just another surface, closet islands are also a chance to utilize extra space in the middle of the room for added storage. Get the stuff you never use off of your main shelves, and make more room for the sweaters, shirts, and jackets that you like to have on hand. Alternatively, closet islands are a great place to install many small drawers for knick-knacks and accessories: earrings, necklaces, bracelets, scarves, ties, and anything else that usually clutters your closet can be stored safely and out of sight.
