I LOVE designing closets! My clients are always so happy as they put their possessions away and have an easily accessible place for everything. Whether it’s new construction or a remodel, walk-in or linear closet I love finding ways to make every inch work!
One thing that I really like doing, space permitting, is adding drawer space to a closet. While many folded items should be stored on open shelving (sweatshirts and sweaters, for example), there are some items that MUST be in drawers. Underwear, bathing suits, socks, pajamas—they don’t stay neatly on shelves. When I design either an island (if you’re lucky enough to have a really large walk-in closet) or drawers in the perimeter of the closet, each one is totally customized.
I usually recommend dividing drawers for underwear, socks and jewelry and making them fairly shallow so nothing gets lost. Deeper drawers without dividers work well for p.j.s, workout clothing, etc. I can build drawers in any height, depth and width. I can install dividers and locks, I can line drawers for jewelry, too! I stock lovely brushed chrome knobs and pulls but occasionally my clients choose to supply their own handles, which, of course, we are happy to install for them on our drawers. We an add any kind of countertop. The laminates today are so versatile that it’s often difficult to tell if they’re laminate, wood, granite or even marble. I can do it all!
