A Dedicated Closet for Jewelry!

A Dedicated Closet for Jewelry!

This turn-of-the century home has small closets. One closet was particularly small and lacked depth, so it wasn’t considered useful. But we knew our client needed a solution for her jewelry. This “useless” closet was just the ticket!  With shelving and stackable jewelry trays, our own t-cup necklace holders, a door-hanging jewelry box, and decorative antler hooks, this unusable closet became a true gem!

 

No Laundry Room Needed

No Laundry Room Needed

laundry1 laundry2We aimed to solve a problem: transforming a small closet for a laundry room. With the stacked washer on the right, we used the remaining space to add deep overhead shelves, hanging hamper bags, a drying rack, and thin-profile shelving. This thimble shelving unit is from Pottery Barn.
Making small spaces work harder for you at www.columbusclosets.com. Do you have a small space that can be put to better use? We’d love to hear about it!

Closet Versatility!

Closet Versatility!
Is your closet versatile?
Hint, Hint: it’s not about size! Even large, contemporary walk-in closets may have only a single shelf and hang bar installed on each wall. Having only 2 closet elements means only a few items will store well here. Therefore, our shoes end up on the floor, sweaters are zipped away under-the-bed, and suitcases and hampers sit clumsily against the closet wall. But for even the smallest closets, these basic closet elements will dramatically increase storage potential:
– Shoe shelves are the universal element for storage
-Drawers for undergarments
-Cubbies and shelves for sweaters, t-shirts, hats
-Belt, tie, and accessory bars
-Hooks for scarves, purses, etc
-Long hang rods for dresses and coats
 -Double hang rods for short length clothing
 Plan with your belongings in mind, and feel free to roam!
