Do This, Not That: Closet Edition

Sparkling closet

We thought it would be fun to do a “Do This, Not That” for one of the most important areas of your home: the closet. We’ll highlight our favorite custom closet features and tell you what to avoid. Let’s get started!

Do This: Custom shelving

Custom shelving is ideal for accessories like handbags and shoes. Avoid damaging your items or overstuffing your drawers. We build sturdy shelves to support your wardrobe needs for years.

Not: Hanging organizers

Hanging organizers are affordable to a fault most of the time. The reason for this is that they are constructed with a cheap loose nylon-like material and supported by plastic inserts. Even if you don’t overstuff them, the light materials will start to bend and sag –more trips to the store for a replacement.

Do This: Concealed hamper

Hampers go through a lot of wear and tear, so why not have a sturdy built-in option? Our durable hampers with a cloth liner allow you to make trips to the laundry room hassle-free.

Not: Flimsy basket hamper

If your hamper doesn’t have a designated space, it is sure to get in the way at some point. Regular hampers get jostled around so much that they’re prone to breaking. 

Do This: Shoe organizing options

Shoe shelves with stylish railings or even shoe cubbies are fantastic options to keep shoes off the floor! Customizable by height, accommodate all shoes from boots to flats with shelving. Shoe cubbies that allow both pairs to lay flat prevent unnecessary damage to the materials.

Not: Floor space storage

It is common for people to line the floor of their closet with shoes. If you have carpet in your closet, direct exposure to the soles of your shoes can soil it. Depending on the number of pairs you own, it’ll be difficult to sift through your collection. This will require more organizing time and effort than desired, especially when you consider that shoes can incur damage when stored improperly.
