Designing your dream closet should be fun, exciting and invigorating, not stressful and time-consuming. So – the California Closets Reno team put together six simple steps to achieve having your dream closet, whether you live in Reno, Nevada, Carson City, Elko, Fallon, Fernley, Sparks, Sun Valley, Truckee or Winnemucca.
Step 1: Get Rid of Unnecessary Items
Spring-cleaning shouldn’t just be reserved for springtime. Regularly go through your closet each season, and get rid of any clothing or accessories you don’t wear anymore. Give to friends, donate or sell so that they will be used elsewhere. This instantly frees up closet space and clears the clutter to see what you really have to work with.
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: Come up with a Closet System
Before anything can be designed, you have to establish the foundation of the closet first. The closet system acts as a blueprint to decide what kind of closet you need and what main accessories are involved to achieve optimal organization.
Step 4: 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 5: 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.
