I Love My Closet…But

March 4th, 2012

I love my Closet Factory closet…but

by: Georgia Kukoski, Designer, Closet Factory Richmond

As a Closet Factory designer, my customers tell me every day how much they love their new Closet Factory closets. Customers share that the closet has truly made a difference in their daily lives. The morning routine is less stressful because clothes, shoes and jewelry have a place and are easy to access. So when my customer emailed after her installation that she loved her closet, but . . . my heart sank. I was at the installation and our Closet Factory Installation Team had done a masterful job of installing the panels, shelves, doors and drawers. And the continuous capshelf along the angled ceiling was amazing. What could she not love about her new master closet?

I took a deep breath and continued to read the email. “Georgia, I love my new closets.  My only criticism is that I can now see that I have six sweaters that are virtually the same color (really its twelve since I have the same problem with a particular shade of blue and another shade of green).  Ignorance was bliss.”

I laughed out loud! What a great problem we created for our customer! And it made me wonder how many other customers and future customers have purchased clothes that they already have in their closet or dresser because they could not find or see them.
With a season change around the corner, save some money on clothes. You will start the spring organized and aware of all your clothes and shoes.

5 Closet Accessories for Men

March 1st, 2011

We seem to be on a roll discussing closet accessories, first we posted on organizing accessories with jewelry storage, then we shared a reminder about our special to receive 2 free closet accessories. And now we are going to share a post detailing the 5 accessories to keep men organized when it comes down to the closet from the national Closet Factory blog.

  1. built in closetBuilt-in laundry hamper with a removable basket, or a removable canvas bag. This is a necessity for keeping dirty clothing off the floor and out of the way. Some men like 2 hampers so that dry-cleaning and business wear stay in one and casual everyday stuff in the other.
  2. Pullout pants rack. Often men fold jeans in half in their custom closet system and lay them on a big, long shelf or put them in drawers, or some hang their slacks on a pant hanger and others fold them over a hanger. The best solution is to have them all in one place, neatly hanging, in a spot that’s it own space.
  3. Velvet, faux leather or suede lining closet accessories in a drawer. Men need a special place to drop their wallet, watch, billfold, iPod, keys and valuable loose ends when they arrive home.  Add a bit of luxury with the padded velvet option for the drawer bottom.
  4. Cubbies for t-shirts and sweaters work like a charm to keep folded clothing neat and tidy. Wide shelves are impossible to keep orderly while a cubby built-in closet compartments allow a pile of 4 to 6 items to stay nicely folded when you remove one from the stack. If you already have a built-in closet system you can add clip-on-shelf dividers to create a cubby effect!
  5. Slatwall with an assortment of organizer racks and different size hooks. Slatwalls are perfect for utilizing wall space that would often go unused. They are the best option for a organization solution for odd shaped items like baseball caps, sunglasses and all sorts of miscellaneous items.

Laundry room design by Closet Factory Richmond

No one loves doing laundry, well there may be a few people who find it relaxing and therapeutic, but the majority of us only do it because it’s necessary. If you do the laundry in your home then you know first hand how quickly the laundry room can become cluttered and disorganized. With everyone dropping their clothes off  things tend to build up and spiral out of control.

If we just described the scene in your laundry room we want to share a few tips on keeping an organized laundry room.

  • Add organization solutions and accessories by Closet Factory Richmond such as shelving, cabinetry and hooks to optimize all the space in your laundry room.
  • Maximize shelf space by placing the items you use most often in the front on the shelves closest to your workspace. Organize remaining products in order from how much they are used, with the items used the least in the back.
  • Use a collapsible drying rack that is easy to put up and take down on hand for items that aren’t dryer friendly.
  • Use a laundry sorter so family members can separate their clothes as they drop them off, eliminating clutter and cutting down the time it takes to complete the laundry.
