If you need an extra closet, you’ve come to the right place. There are several steps when creating a closet from scratch, and the designers from California Closets Cape Cod put together several steps to follow when turning any room into a highly organized, functional and beautiful closet for homeowners living in Lower Cape, Mid Cape, Upper Cape, Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, Barnstable, Bass River, Bourne and Brewster.
Step 1: Get Rid of Unnecessary Items
This step may seem obvious, but this includes installed furniture or shelving as well. Only install or keep shelving and cabinetry that will benefit the way you want to organize your closet – get rid of the rest.
Step 2: Imagine Your Redesign
Now that you’ve cleared space, look at how your closet is built and note what changes you’d like to make. If you could have your dream closet, what would it look like? An expansive walk-in closet? A functional, sleek reach-in closet? Or, a compact and mobile wardrobe? Whatever your needs and goals are, you can absolutely make it a reality.
Step 3: Install Closet Accessories that Organize
The secret to closet organization lies in the details. Closet accessories such as shoe storage shelves, drawer and shelf dividers, jewelry drawer dividers, baskets and hampers, pullout racks and valets, and hooks and poles will help find a home for all of your items and keep clothes and shoes off of the floor for good.
Step 4: Select Your Finishes & Materials
Once the organization plan is set in stone, now it’s time to add your personal style to your closet so that you’ll want to keep your items organized. Carefully select materials that reflect you.
Finishes: With unique materials and color palettes through artisans and designers from around the world, the sky is the limit when it comes to your closet’s finish. From classic shades to distinctive imported textures, you can get a sophisticated look of real wood, with a more durable construction.
Materials: Only select the best materials with sustainable, California Air Resources Board (CARB) compliant materials. Recycled wood fibers and LEED standard supplies add to a better quality closet.
Added Elements: LED lighting, display shelving, bench seating, leather doors and acrylic and metal enhancements take your closet from basic to breathtaking.
