Thankfully there are solutions for all this frustration. We provide customized systems that maximize space, create organization, provide easy access to items, flexibility to changing needs, durability to help prolong the life of your items.
There has been a vast amount of research done to come up with a way to maximize space and to organize. We offer a newer approach to this by providing vertical solutions rather than the basic horizontal approach. This utilizes the space below and above the existing hanging. There is a simplicity to the systems, yet it is amazing the variety of customization and personalization that can be created.
We follow the principles of design which is form follows function. Space looks best when it functions the best. This is vital especially to maximize storage in small spaces and creating organization.
Our storage solutions are created from knowing the standard sizing of different lengths and the depths of hanging items, folded item depths and widths, shoe sizing, and other storage objects. This provides the information for the foundation of the systems. Knowing that a folded item and shoes do not take up as much depth as a hanging item dictates where the best placement of these items are located for best access.
We recommend adjustable shelves for folded items, shoes, handbags, knapsacks, and other items for quick access. Folded items are best on shelves because they are easier to see, easy access, and easy to maintain tidiness. If folded items are in drawers we tend to only have access to the top two our three layers and items quickly get lost and messy. We recommend drawers for more personal items like socks and undergarments.
There are many items that we recommend for folding since shelves can in often provide more storage than hanging areas and can prolong the life of your clothing by preventing stretching. These items are some pants, jeans, long sleeve/short sleeve/sleeveless tee-shirts, tank tops, sweaters, sweatshirts, stretchy tops, pullover tops, stretchy pants, and shorts.
Our suggestions for hanging items are button up shirts, blouses, dress pant hung by the cuff/long or fold over a hanger, all types of jackets/coats/blazers, skirts, and dresses. It is best to use the same type of hanger in each designated section. By removing wire and plastic hangers (can cause shoulder bumps and slipping) with velvet hangers, and wooden hangers for heavier items like coats, jackets, and pants hung in half, can help with the longevity of your items as well as help with organization.
What About My Shoes?
We often provide a shoe tower with adjustable shelves for shoes. In some cases, we design shelves for shoes above short hanging items because hanging comes out much further than the depth of a shelf for shoes, it is easier access for both items, and a lot easier to keep organized.
We Apply All Our Knowledge and Skill Into Each Build
These are some examples of recommendations and solutions. What is nice about this is when we are in your home for a design consultation, we discuss your needs, assess what you would like to store, measure your space, and design a solution specifically for you. Closets come in many sizes and shapes. We apply our knowledge of the function and versatility of our systems based on your needs to maximize and organize your space.
Once your new system is in place, it will enable you to have peace of mind to be able to group like items, utilize all your space, have easy access to items, and store your items in a way that will protect and promote longevity to your items.
