Closet Organizers and the Most Interesting Man in the World

By csc-admin - June 22nd, 2012

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.

Closet Organizers and the Most Interesting Man in the World

Men and women often have different requirements where it comes to the design of a custom closet. For example:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Stay organized my friends.

Closet Solutions and the Coordinated Crafter

By csc-admin - June 12th, 2012

It’s surely no coincidence that mega-retail giants devoted to the supply needs of crafters have braved the recent economic downturn successfully and emerged victorious, whereas so many other mega-retailers met their demise (I’m looking at you, electronics). Crafters are a passionate, devoted lot who, when faced with adversity, will cut, paper, paste and paint themselves into better times.

Crafting, by nature, requires supplies.

Lots of ‘em.

And nothing can slow down a crafter-on-a-roll faster than disorganization. Having to drag out scrapbooking supplies every time the opportunity (and inspiration) presents itself can surely damper the memory-lane mood. Stacks of gift wrap and tissue stashed in each corner of the dining room is a meal time eyesore. Markers, scissors, rulers, yarn, glitter, not to mention the countless other embellishments crafters use in pursuit of their chosen art form, strewn across every available flat surface, has undoubtedly been the source of many a domestic squabble.Storage Solutions - Carfters

There is another way, my organizationally-impaired craft enthusiast!

Let Closet & Storage Concepts design a custom craft closet to meet your creative needs! Imagine all of your supplies stored neatly and accessibly in a closet dedicated to your craft. Benefits of having a custom closet storage system such as this include:

  1. Saves Money: You will know at a glance where all your supplies are. Never spend good money to replace a missing pair of scissors, only to find the old pair three weeks later jammed in a junk drawer. Also, by seeing your inventory at a glance, you will not be tempted to buy that extra felt “just in case”.
  2. Saves Time: No more wasting the first precious ½ hour of crafting time hunting for and gathering the necessary supplies. Everything you need will be stored in the same place every time. Now take a moment and let this possibility soak in…
  3. Saves Sanity: Be honest–how many times have you torn your place apart looking for that one thing that would make a good project great, only to say to yourself, “I must be going crazy, I know I saw a (insert missing item here) somewhere just last week”. With a closet organization system by Closet & Storage concepts, you’ll know exactly where (insert never-lost-in-the-first-place item here) is immediately.

With a custom closet solution by Closet & Storage Concepts you will (rarely) question your sanity again and always put your best sequined sneakers forward!  Contact a Closet & Storage Concepts Specialist today and schedule a free in-home consultation or Call us at 1-888-THE-CLOSET (1-888-843-2567).
