A Modern Man's Wardrobe in Albany
What He Wanted
During a scheduled bathroom renovation, Ralph Simeone realized it was a good time to also update his master closet. His current space lacked organization and did not allow him to optimize the storage options he needed for his clothing, shoes and accessories. Eager to invest in a custom design that would successfully support his wardrobe and day-to-day routine, Ralph enlisted the help of California Closets Albany, working with design consultant Michelle Mangini to come up with the perfect solution— a sophisticated walk-in closet with the right balance of function and masculine style.
Michelle was great to work with and very attentive during installation. The closet turned out amazing!!
How we did it
Michelle problem-solved around several existing design challenges, including angled ceilings and an attic access panel that needed to be moved. Her smart design incorporated lighting, a mix of materials, and a balance of open and closed shelving to give the entire space a fresh and orderly feel. Additionally, she created designated areas for Ralph’s clothing and display cases where he could showcase and appreciate his collections of hats, shoes, and accessories.
Michelle’s modern design optimized the entire room’s storage potential, eliminating Ralph’s clutter with an organizational system that can finally accommodate his wardrobe.
