A “slide rule”, by its ordinary definition, is hardly much to get worked-up over. Unless one is a collector of antiquated computing devises, or enjoys the “geek-chic” look of a mini slide rule provocatively peeking out from the protective lining of a breast pocket (also known as a “nerd shirt”), there really isn’t much ado about the common definition of such a device.
Ah, but there is another “slide” rule that is deceptively simple, yet extravagant, cool yet practical, and so chic that even Carrie Bradshaw would gasp and demand of Mr. Big that she have one for herself. This “slide” rules the custom closet, yet fits in a space just over 3” wide. This “slide” is a pull-out mirror accessory from the custom closet design accessories available at Closet & Storage Concepts.
This sliding pull-out mirror is one of the best selling accessories available at Closet & Storage Concepts — for good reason. The pullout mirror is cleverly mounted so that it is tucked away, leaving full access to hanging clothes and other stored items. When a mirror is needed, it slides out well beyond the clothes and stored items and rotates open to reveal a full-length swivel mirror. Once you are done assembling a perfect NYC out-on-the-town ensemble or, if you’re like me, toss on a modern take on classic bohemian, the mirror then slides back into place and seemingly disappears from view.
This is a perfect solution for those who need regular use of a full length mirror, but do not want to have a mirror permanently installed on the wall or as a part of a free-standing wardrobe—both of which stare back at you ceaselessly, even when you don’t necessary desire that reflection.
In addition to adjustability and ease of use, the design of the pullout mirror eliminates the safety concerns that come with full-length mirror installation, especially in a youth bedroom. The youngster can enjoy the use of a full-length view that they are often denied with bureau-top mirrors, without the safety concerns of a mirror flimsily secured to a wall. Young muscles can be flexed and hairbrushes can be sung into, without the concern of a mirror mishap.
Jewelry drawers, wall safes, wall-mounted ironing boards, valet rods and shoe racks are just a few examples of the many closet design accessories available to the designers at Closet & Storage Concepts. Let our closet designers help you decide what is important to you, and then provide the solutions necessary to create the closet design or your dreams!
Carrie Bradshaw would be envious.
