3 Incredibly Cool Celebrity Offices

By CSC - December 15th, 2014

Slider Office-4 JHere at Closet and Storage Concepts of Massachusetts, we love creating beautifully functional spaces. This includes home offices. We create custom solutions to help generate style through organization. Home offices pull double duty as they add personality, but must also be extremely functional for an optimal amount of productivity to occur. Today, we’re showing three interesting celebrity offices to get your juices flowing on how you can achieve similar results, with the help of Closet and Storage Concepts!

Tory Burch’s New York Office

First up is Tory Burch. The fashion designer and CEO of her brand is no stranger to wearing many hats, much like an office does. As can be seen here, in her New York Office she shows off her attention to detail.

As advocates of craftsmanship and detail, we like the grommets in the chair cushions, the finish on the book shelves, and the use of a pin board. Pin boards are great as they allow snippets to be re-shuffled without actually damaging your walls. Adapt a pin board in the closet to hang your jewelry.

This seems very appropriate for her field and is classic Burch: simple, yet elegant and luxurious.

Jessica Alba at The Honest Company

Pictured when Elle stopped by The Honest Company (check out some images here), Jessica Alba has one of the most unique desk colors that we’ve seen here at Closet and Storage Concepts, and we like it. We love being unique given that we create unique storage solutions. Alba’s use of color is great and really perks up a space. With ample drawers, it seems like a great storage solution too! We know that the key to a productive and organized space is having the proper amount of office storage.

Casey Neistat’s Customized NYC Studio

If you’ve heard about or seen any of the director’s videos you’ve also probably heard about his studio. It is probably the most customized office space that we have seen. If you thought customization was just a bunch of malarkey, Neistat’s space is here to prove you wrong. Shown here in this issue of Milk Made, you can see one area of how customized Neistat’s studio is. All of those shelving units were specifically created to fit this space in a way that makes sense for the director to allow optimal time creating movies, not digging for a piece of material. Having a permanent location for each item in his studio reduces messiness and increases productivity; a great mix for a work space. The tangible Facebook wall is a unique element that adds to the space and reflects Neistat’s personality.

If you’re looking to create a unique space that is just as functional and unique, give Closet and Storage Concepts a call. We can show you just how easy and incredible a customized home office can be.

Reasons To Be Thankful For An Organized Home Over The Holidays

By CSC - November 26th, 2014

TraditionalThanksgiving

We’re just a day away from Thanksgiving, and everyone at Closet and Storage Concepts couldn’t be happier. We’re thankful for many things, but we’re most thankful for the amazing customers we get to craft incredible custom storage solutions for. With the number of holidays just around the corner, now is a better time than ever to consider upgrading your home’s storage system in order to finally get your family good and organized. For this special Thanksgiving post, we’ve put together a list of reasons why you’ll be thankful for your incredible new closet system. Read on to find out more, and here’s wishing you and yours a happy Thanksgiving from everyone here at Closet and Storage concepts!

When Your Home Is Organized, You’re Able To Find What You Need

Let’s say you’re a few days away from Christmas, and Aunt Jeanie is just about to get into town. You know that if she doesn’t see the kids wearing those oversized Christmas sweaters she gave them last year, she’s sure to have her feelings hurt. In most households, in can take hours trying to track down the things you’ve shoved into the back of a closet, out of sight and out of mind. In a well-organized home featuring innovative closet systems by Closet and Storage Concepts, you’ll have those sweaters out and on the kids before she even gets off the plane. The same goes for holiday decorations and home décor; the better designed your storage system is, the easier it will be to pull everything out when the holiday season rolls around.

You’ve Got to Hide Those Toys Somewhere

If your family is anything like ours, as soon as December comes around the kids are already poking around the house trying to find their hidden presents. It’s been a childhood tradition for as long as any of us can remember, and there’s nothing more disappointing than knowing your little one already knows that new bike is coming before the big day. One of the many benefits of a robust closet system is the sheer amount of space you have to tuck things away. We always extoll the virtues of being able to find everything as easily as possible, but there are also those times when having a developed storage system gives you even more options to keep things out of sight. Trying to keep Junior from discovering that new train set? With a custom Closet and Storage Concepts storage system, we bet you’ll be able to find plenty of places to stash away all your family’s gifts.

Holiday Dinners Just Got Easier

At Closet and Storage Concepts, we not only build custom closets and entertainment centers; we’re also skilled in crafting incredible kitchen pantry solutions. What better time to be thankful for a well-organized pantry than Thanksgiving? With the huge influx of pantry items that tends to happen prior to whipping up your Thanksgiving fixings, you don’t want to be cramming even more items into your already over-stuffed pantry. A perfectly designed pantry will not only allow you to handle all of your Thanksgiving foodstuffs, it also makes it easier to buy early and in bulk in order to be better prepared for the holiday season. If that’s not something to be thankful for, we don’t know what is!

This holiday season, don’t let a disorganized home get in your way. Call Closet and Storage Concepts today to find out what a new storage system can do for your family!

Digging Through Your Pantry – Tips For Thanksgiving Food Drives

By CSC - November 14th, 2014

pantry (4)

Here at Closet and Storage Concepts, we’re experts in all aspects of home storage solutions. From garage storage to innovative murphy beds, Closet and Storage Concepts has the experience necessary to craft the perfect solution for your family’s needs. Some of our favorite types of projects to work on are kitchen pantries; not only is the kitchen often the nexus of a home, but it can also be one of the most disorganized areas in the house. As we inch closer to Thanksgiving, it’s likely that many organizations in your area are beginning to focus on their yearly pantry food drive. For this post, we’re taking our love for pantry storage projects and combining it with the importance of holiday food drives. We’ve put together a list of a few rules when it comes to donating items typically stored in your pantry. Sometimes getting your home better organized can also lead to added benefits for your community, so read on to find out how you can clear out your pantry storage while helping neighbors in need.

Start By Pulling Out Extra Items

The easiest way to get started with a food drive is to look into your pantry and find the items you have extras of. Whether you bought 20 cans of lentils when they were on sale or simply never got around to trying out that new product, take a look at your pantry and pull out the items you can easily part with. If you start your food drive approach from this angle, you’ll likely be able to find numerous items you can easily part with. Not every family has the extra income to devote to charity, so if you’re in this position try to organize your pantry while also giving back to the community. Not only will you end up with a better storage system in your kitchen, you’ll also be able to do some good in your local community.

Make Sure To Stick With Nonperishables

Although your pantry can be filled with a number of different types of items, it is essential that you stick to nonperishable items when it comes to most food drives. Most local food banks tend to prefer canned food above all else, as these items have a much longer shelf life than their paper-packaged brethren. Many food drives won’t take products contained in glass jars, so make sure to contact your local organization to find out exactly what kind of items they’re looking for. This way, when you go through your pantry, you’ll know exactly what items you should be pulling.

Focus On Healthy Foods

We all have items in our pantries that satisfy our sweet tooth or junk food addiction, but when donating to a food drive you should really avoid these types of items. Many organizations prefer organic food, but if your pantry doesn’t include these types of products you should focus on single ingredient items such as canned beans or fruit. Dried pasta and rice are also always a great choice, and most disorganized pantries tend to have a plethora of forgotten dried foods. When going through your pantry, make sure to pull out items that are suitable for kids and parents, and always lean towards food with a healthy bent.

At Closet and Storage Concepts, we know the importance of an organized pantry as well as a healthy and well-fed community. This holiday season, we encourage everyone out there to not only get their kitchen pantries better organized, but also to remember just how important it is to give back. If you’re looking for a local food bank try a quick search on this site, and if you’re hoping to get your home better organized make sure to contact Closet and Storage concepts today!

The Biggest Benefits of a Well Organized Home

By csc-admin - October 20th, 2014

Here at Closet and Storage Concepts, we’re experts when it comes to home storage solutions. Whether you’re in need of a new kitchen pantry or a better-organized garage, Closet and Storage Concepts is sure to have exactly what you’re looking for. Before you spring for a new home organizing system, you may be asking yourself, “Just what are the benefits of a well organized home?” Aside from the general aesthetics of a clean and organized space, there are a number of reasons why getting your home’s storage system in order will have a big effect on your life. We’ve put together a few of the biggest benefits of a well organized home, so read on to find out what a new storage system from Closet and Storage Concepts can do for you and your family!
Makes You Far More Productive
Most of us are so busy with the day-to-day activities family life requires that the rest of our time is at a premium. If your home is a disorganized mess, it can make that extra time you have that much less productive. If you work from the home, this point is even more salient: imagine the time you’ll save not having to look for that one item you need for twenty minutes. When your home is well organized, you’ll save tons of time completing tasks and projects because you won’t have to waste any time looking for this or that. Productivity tends to skyrocket in a well-organized space, and your home is no different from the office in that regard. If you can create a great storage system in your home, you’ll likely see your general productivity begin to climb.
Cuts Down On Stress
When you’re forced to spend forty five minutes trying to find your spare hair dryer, not only are you cutting into time you could be spending on other projects, you’re also creating a lot of unnecessary stress for yourself. There’s nothing more infuriating than looking for a single item for a long period of time, and it’s in these situations that we can often see stress levels start to shoot up. Not only does stress have a negative impact on your relationships with others, it can also be a detriment to your health. Imagine this scenario: rather than digging through your junk drawer to find your spare key, you know exactly where it is every time you need to use it. That’s a whole lot of stress suddenly caught from your day-to-day.
Great Effects On Your Family Life
This last point is tied to the prior two in some ways, but it’s still worth mentioning: a well organized home can have myriad positive effects on your family life. Not only will you be less stressed out and far more productive, but also those improvements will lead to better quality time with your family. If you don’t have to spend every morning digging through your son’s closet to find his rain gear, you’ll buy some extra time to sit together and have breakfast. Not only does an organized home get you more time to spend with your family, but it is also a great influence on your growing children, helping them to build habits that will benefit them for the rest of their life. If there’s a better reason to get your storage system in order than that, we sure can’t think of it.

A Photogenic Way To Organize Your Shoe Collection

Even with a beautiful, newly installed closet system, your closet can still become cramped and crowded if you don’t handle organizing well. Jessica Amento shows off her brilliant organizing idea for her shoe collection, where she takes a photo of each and every pair of shoes she owns and tapes it onto the box in which she keeps that particular pair. Whereas many of us simply stream our shoes about wherever we can find the space, this method allows you to neatly stack all of your shoes in your closet while still being able to find what you’re looking for. This is a perfect example of a way you can easily manage your home organization system without spending much money.

A Better Way To Organize Your Scarves

A scarf can often be the perfect accessory for an outfit, but keeping them organized in your closet can be a bit of a headache. Here’s a great idea for getting your scarf collection in order without spending much out of pocket. The great minds at bedifferectactnormal.com outline how you can utilize shower curtain rings in order to turn a normal hanger into a perfect scarf organizer. The best part about this project is that it takes as little time as it does money, but it’s sure to make your closet a more hospitable environment.

A Towel Rod Can Add That Extra Bit Of Space

If you’re looking to completely redo your closet or storage system, Closet and Storage Concepts is right there to help you every step of the way. Often times, though, homeowners are just looking to eke out a bit more storage room rather than completely updating their closet system. If this is the case in your home, check out this idea for using a simple towel rack to create another hanging surface in your closet. If you install a towel rack on the underside of a shelf in your closet, you’ll instantly have another surface to hang things from, immediately expanding your storage ability. And the best part? You can do it all with a few extra dollars and half an hour of free time.

Three Projects For Getting Your Kitchen Organized

By csc-admin - July 15th, 2014

 

When it comes to home storage and organization, there’s one room that typically tends to fall into chaos more often than others: the kitchen. Most homeowners are painfully aware of the common problems found in the kitchen organized, whether it’s an overflowing utensil drawer or a pantry that looks like a grenade has gone off inside of it. At Closet and Storage Concepts, we specialize in providing solutions for these storage needs, so we’ve put together a list of some of the most effective techniques and strategies for keeping your kitchen in tip top shape. Read on to find out what you can do to get your kitchen organized and under control.

Install Some Corner Drawers

One thing we’ve noticed over the years when it comes to kitchen organization is that space is always at a premium. Due to the value of real estate in the kitchen, why is that most kitchen cabinet systems ignore the possibility of utilizing corner space? In the past, many homeowners had Lazy Susans installed in corner spots, but those systems tend to lead to more disorganization than they add. Luckily, some incredible cabinet companies are starting to introduce beautifully crafted corner shelving systems. Click here to get an idea of the way in which one company is changing how we view that extra space between walls.

Custom Pantries By Closet and Storage Concepts

Every homeowner dreams of their own uniquely designed pantry, as every family has their own habits in the kitchen. At Closet and Storage Concepts, we custom craft incredible solutions catered to your home’s needs. Is your pantry tight on space, and you’re just not able to stock up on everything your family needs? Closet and Storage Concepts has a storage design sure to get more bang for your buck. Trying to switch over to using more dried goods throughout the week? We’re sure to have a system that will make organizing as easy as one, two, three. Remember, we don’t offer one-size-fits-all solutions for your home; we craft unique shelves and closets that form fit with your home. Click here to see some incredible pictures, and find out more about how our custom pantries can transform your kitchen from a disorganized mess into a space Martha Stewart would compliment.

Install a Rolling Cabinet

When it comes to getting the most of your kitchen’s space, it’s all about maximization. One thing that can really help in this department is getting multiple uses out of a single item. In the same way Closet and Storage Concepts can set up a master closet for storing both clothing and general wares, so too can you install fixtures that offer multiple solutions. One such strategy is creating a roll out cabinet. As you can see in the above post, companies are now creating kitchen cabinets that roll out to become cutting boards and usable surfaces. If you’re looking for some extra surface space, this might be the solution for your kitchen.

At Closet and Storage Concepts, we’re full of ideas on getting the most out of your space. If you’re looking to expand your storage capabilities, or need some advice on getting your home better organized, contact us today!

Ingenious Storage Solutions for Small Spaces

By csc-admin - June 17th, 2014

At Closet and Storage Concepts, we love a good challenge. One of the most common needs with our clientele is crafting storage solutions for smaller homes and apartments. Whether that means installing a gorgeous new murphy bed or renovating an out of date closet, Closet and Storage Concepts is sure to have the answer your home is looking for. We’ve put together a few ingenious and creative storage solutions designed with small spaces in mind. Read on to find a few ideas for getting the most out of your home’s floor plan!

Turn Your French Doors Into Shelving

When working with a small space, it can pay dividends to find storage solutions where you wouldn’t normally consider them. For instance, many one bedrooms typically have French doors separating the bedroom from the main living area. Anyone who’s tried to cram all of their belongings into a small apartment knows that any and every space needs to be utilized in order to get the most out of the arrangement. If you have French doors and need more storage room, consider attaching bookshelves to them. We’ve seen this strategy implemented many times, and not only does it create a great look, it also provides a storage solution if you’re low on closet space.

Make More Out of Your Staircase

When you’re stuck needing more storage in your home, every unused space starts to look like a viable solution. If you just don’t have the closet storage that you need in your home, but you have a fairly large staircase leading to your second floor, consider converting the space beneath the staircase into a shelving area. This post on Houzz showcases some truly inventive ways to create storage space in an area that would typically remain unused. If you’re willing to get creative with your staircase, the options are endless. Whether you install an entertainment center, some quality bookshelves, or simply a small storage nook, your staircase offers you the ability to be so much more than a way to get to the second floor.

Look Above You!

One of the dictates of getting more out of small spaces is to think up. Often times, this implies tall, narrow bookshelves and closets rather than stout spread out ones. Similarly, it always pays to consider the ways in which overhead storage systems can alleviate some of your need for space. If it’s the garage that you’re hoping to overhaul, many people have turned to ceiling racks to store some of their excess belongings. This post outlines a brilliant way to install tracks on your ceiling that can then easily hold multiple storage bins. This strategy isn’t just limited to your garage; there are all kinds of ways to apply the same solution inside your home, be it overhead cabinets in the bathroom or a headboard that features modest shelving at the top. Here’s a great collection of indoor overhead storage systems to give you an idea of just how much can be done with that ceiling space you’re not currently using.

At Closet and Storage Concepts, we’re constantly discovering smarter and better ways to solve your storage needs, whether that involves remodeling a tiny closet to offer more space or working with a small apartment that needs a more creative solution. If you’re in need of a better storage system, contact us today to discover the possibilities made possible by Closet and Storage Concepts!

World Libraries With Incredible Storage Solutions

By csc-admin - March 31st, 2014

At Closet and Storage Concepts, North America’s premier custom closet and storage system outfitter, we’re always on the hunt for the coolest and most creative in storage concepts. From the pantries in large restaurants to the way film societies organize their archives, we love seeing impressive storage systems in action. Perhaps the most beloved and frequently impressive organization systems in the world belong to some of our greatest libraries, such as the endlessly awe-inspiring Library of Congress. In honor of this great storage system tradition, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite libraries from around the world, each one demonstrating the heights of organization we strive for at Closet and Storage Concepts. Read on for a global tour in magnificent storage concepts!

Shiba Ryotaro Memorial Museum

Named after the great Japanese post-war author, the Shiba Ryotaro is a marvel in melding design with organizational needs. The building, designed by Tadao Ando, is meant to mirror the inner working of an author’s mind, hence the incredible walls and walls of books. There’s something incredibly immersive about the book storage system at the library, a feat reflected in the sheer number of books housed in a small space. This is perhaps what‘s most impressive about the storage concept at the Shiba Ryotaro Memorial Museum: storage has been effectively married to concept, making for a truly unique experience.

Mafra National Palace Library

The National Palace Library is a treasure held within the city of Mafra, Portugal. Portugal is home to a number of well-known libraries, but the Mafra National Palace Library is the most interesting to everyone at Closet and Storage Concepts due to its particularly ingenious storage system.  When built, not only did the architect responsible make sure to create a book shelving system that accommodated a major collection, he also made sure to leave room behind the books for a colony of bats. The bats were used to keep the library vermin and insect free, and would be released every night from their space behind the books. Our closet systems don’t typically house flying animals, but we still have to applaud this remarkable system.

The George Peabody Library

Housed in the world-renown Peabody Institute of Music at John Hopkins University, the George Peabody Library is one of the finest in America. Containing over 300,000 volumes, the Peabody Library  is a perfect example of marrying form and function in the world of storage systems. Featuring six tiers of cast iron columns, decorative railings, and gold-leaf embellishments, the Peabody Library demonstrates that there is certainly a way to make organization beautiful, which is something we always strive for at Closet and Storage Concepts.

Liyuan Library

Designed by famed Chinese Architect Li Xiaodong Atelier, the Liyuan Library is truly a sight to behold. Located in the small village of Huairou on the outskirts of Beijing, the Liyuan Library was meant to be an example of how to make a storage system blend in seamlessly with its environment. In the same way that Closet and Storage Concepts makes sure to design and implement closet systems that work holistically within its environment, the Liyuan Library is composed of panels of twigs in order to reflect the natural surroundings of the village. Beautiful in its simplicity and elegance, the Liyuan Library is a case study in working your surroundings into the design of a storage system.

At Closet and Storage Concepts, we keep in mind all of the great storage and design ideas reflected in this list in order to craft personalized closets and organization systems for our customers. We may not build bat caves behind your bookshelves, but we’ll make sure to create effective and  visually stunning closet and storage systems for all your needs.

 

Tips for Organizing Your Gear, Play Room, and Craft Closets

By csc-admin - February 14th, 2014

Every home has a different need when it comes to storage, making a one-size-fits-all approach to organization ineffective for most homes. Here at Closet and Storage Concepts, we always work with our customers to find a unique solution to their particular storage problem based on our years of experience. We’ve put together a few tips for organizing a few different closets dedicated to specific types of families and homeowners, from the outdoorsy to the craft-inclined. Whatever your storage situation may be, Closet and Storage Concepts is sure to have a system perfect for keeping your home organized and accessible.

The Gear Closet

Exercise is a must for everyone, and who doesn’t love camping trips and weekend hikes? One of the problems that can arise for these invigorating hobbies is just what to do with all of your camping and sports gear when you’re not able to find the time? We’ve found that having a dedicated gear closet for all of your outdoor equipment can go a long way in keeping your home manageable. An essential item for any gear closet is an over-the-door rack, since balls, bats, and other sports equipment tend to like to move around a lot when placed on a shelf or the floor. Also, look into bins or baskets dedicated to different activities, so that when its time to take the kids to the lake, you’ll know exactly where the tent and camping stove are stored. We’ve also found that a hanging shoe organizer can work great in a gear closet, as it’s perfect for holding mitts, helmets, and hiking boots. Dedicating a closet in your home just for these kinds of activities is sure to make motivating yourself when spring time comes around that much easier.

The Play Room Closet

As any parent is quick to tell you, keeping a play room in order can be a serious headache. A bit of organization can go a long way to keeping things manageable, and a dedicated closet space is the first place to start. The first thing parents should make sure they’re doing is placing those messy items that require supervision (markers that can be used to write on walls, board games with small pieces, etc.) on the top shelf of the closet. If a child can get to a toy they love to play with, they’ll find a way, so it’s important to organize with this in mind. We also recommend getting a label maker for organizing the toy closet, so that when you assign different types of items to different bins or boxes, you’ll be able to find them with ease. We’ve also found that storing books lower, which many people don’t often do, can be encouraging for a child, as they’re more likely to utilize the toys that are within easy reach.

The Craft Closet

Keeping your crafting gear in order can be especially problematic, as a lot of the items can be small and hard to keep track of. One of the best lessons we’ve learned in craft organization is to use ice cube trays to keep your smaller items, such as thimbles, safety pins, and the like, in ice cube trays stored in drawers or boxes. This is sure to keep them easy to find and separated from your other tiny craft needs. Also, like any closet, it’s best to store heavier items, like your sewing machine, at waist level to avoid unnecessarily difficult lifting. Finally, make sure to utilize the back of the door, either with a peg board to hang scissors or current projects on, our a kitchen rack to store paints and glue. It’s always easier to start a project well-organized, so make sure to dedicate a well-kept space to your favorite hobby!
