Cubbies Aren’t Just For Preschoolers Anymore

By csc-admin - May 22nd, 2012

The word cubby makes me smile.

Maybe it’s because it reminds me of simpler days when my now (late teens) teenagers went to preschool and everything revolved around “the cubby”.  At the end of a long work day, I knew that I had something special waiting for me in the cubby—a finger painting or a drawing of me with a huge head and tiny feet, macaroni sculptures, paper plate hats and yarn crafts — all lovingly created by my little sweeties. Correspondence to and from the teachers were left in the cubby, as were pictures of my darlings in various stages of their day — playing, eating or sleeping– all left in the cubby for me to savor and cherish forever.

Or maybe it’s because cubby is a funny word.

Either way, a cubby is a place of distinction as far as I am concerned. And now that one of those aforementioned sweeties just came home for the summer from her first year of college and the other sweetie can grow a mustache, the cubby has a new and more practical definition that has matured along with me—that of a closet storage system to store and organize the (literally) hundreds of pairs of shoes I have amassed over the yeCloset Designs: Shoe Rackars.
I’m no Imelda Marcos and I think many, if not most, women have accumulated a recalcitrant collection of shoes by their late forties. Shoe cubbies restrain the unrestrainable and add order to chaos.

Cubbies, for those who don’t know (e.g. men) are rows of box-like compartments stacked in layers as high as one wishes. Shoe storage cubbies come in different configurations and can be customized by a closet designer in accordance to ones individual storage needs.

The benefits of cubby shoe storage system are:

  1. Space Saving: If one were to line up 20 pairs of shoes, each pair taking up 9” of space, one would need 15 feet of shelf space. The same 20 pairs of shoes can fit in a 24” x 24” cubby shoe storage system.
  2. Money Savings: Shoes piled on the floor get kicked around and stepped on and thus need replacing more frequently. Cubby storage also keeps the shoes safe from damage by pets and free of dust.
  3. Time Savings: Unlike storage in shoe boxes, cubby shoe storage allows you to see your shoe collection at a glance and enables you to pair shoes with an outfit in a snap. Shoes are kept clean, dust free and ready to wear every time.
  4. Face Savings: Mishandled stacks of shoes tend to become aromatic over time and your living space can begin to smell like a dirty thrift shop.

Small Closet Storage Solutions

By csc-admin - March 16th, 2012

If you have a closet that you just cannot seem to put everything in, here are some suggestions for organizing smartly.

  1. Closet Storage Get rid of clutter. Do not waste precious small closet space on clutter. Eliminate any clothing or accessories that you no longer want or use. If you find items you want to keep for sentimental reason, you need to find another location to store them.
  2. Eliminate Wasted Shelf Space. Many closet shelves are far apart, deep, or non-existent. One large shelf does not allow you to separate items in your closet. Using shelf dividers help to keep your space organized.
  3. Double Hanging Rods. By hanging clothes like shirts, folded pants, blouses and jackets on two rows – one on top of the other – allows you to actually hang twice the amount of clothing in the area
  4. Add Drawers. Add drawers towards the bottom of the closet or a small dresser for sweaters, socks, scarves, etc.
  5. Add Organizational Accessories. Adding baskets, shoes racks, and belt and tie racks will help insure you have a place for everything.
  6. Space Saving Hangers. Flat style ‘friction’ hangers with non-slip rubber padding insure your garments stay in place and hold more in less space.

Custom closets do not require any extensive remodeling. Our closet experts can maximize your storage by utilizing even the smallest of spaces.  Contact us for a Free In-Home Closet Storage Consultation or Call 1-888-843-2567 (THE-CLOSET).
