Much has been made over the past few years about the existence of the “man cave”.
Originally coined in a tongue-in-cheek manner, the concept of a separate space in the home (often relegated to the darkest, dankest least desirable hovel within the residence), has gained wide acceptance as a legitimate use of square footage. The idea of partitioning off the males of the tribe by providing them an area to be, well… male, has become common place. In its purest definition of the word, the man cave is a no-frills arena in which eating, drinking, relaxation and/or entertainment, without the interference of décor or civility (i.e. women) is king. No further demands or expectations are to be made of this sacred space.
Not every male however is satisfied with such an adornment-free environment. There are a great many males who prefer the finer things. There are those who recognize and appreciate quality, and demand that life be shaken, not stirred. These males aspire to an environment that comprises both form AND function. These are the men who appreciate the closet organization systems provided by Closet & Storage Concepts.
Men and women often have different requirements where it comes to the design of a custom closet. For example:
- Men carry many hand-held devices on their person, such as a smart phone, ipod, e-reader, etc, which require a designated place to be stored and charged. A flat area near a power source is an excellent addition to a gentleman closet. Wireless chargers make it possible to have a charging station, even when an outlet is not available.
- Organization of ties and belts is a uniquely male necessity. Closet & Storage Concepts uses specialty tie and belt racks, as well as drawers in which ties can be neatly rolled and stored.
- Men love quality lighting that allows them to distinguish between subtle shades of color, enabling them to make perfect color-coordinated clothing choices every time, thus putting an end to embarrassing different-colored-socks-syndrome. Unlike their female counterparts, men desire simple lighting fixtures, (as opposed to chandeliers dripping with crystals favored by females) such as in-cabinetry lighting recessed into shelves and integrated into hanging rods.
A closet storage system by Closet & Storage Concepts may not transform a man-cave dweller into a gentleman of style and refinement, but it can transform your closets into the solution for all your challenging storage needs.
