Fall is the Perfect Time for Closet and Storage Concepts to Design Your Custom Entertainment Center or Home Theater Room
The little signs of the approach of fall are everywhere. The cool, crisp evenings, a slight color change on the tips of the leaves, the endurance of some really awful new television shows before natural selection sends them to the great sitcom repository in the sky. It’s a magical time.
One of the best parts of fall for me, besides doing “the kids are back in school” happiness samba, is preparing for the long cold nights of winter. Much like the legendary “nesting” instinct mothers-to-be experience in the time preceding the baby’s arrival, I look forward to the annual ritual of preparing my home for “the long winter’s nap”. And by nap, I mean enjoying lots of comfort food and taking in some serious screen time.
What better way to enjoy watching a movie with the family, having the benefit of some exercise via an electronic fitness game or cheering on the Eagles (I mean, your football team of choice) than on a custom home theater center designed by Closet and Storage Concepts. Custom home theater systems are built with the needs of your family, and the unique consideration of your space, in mind. The large screen television is front and center within a custom built media space, while the less attractive cords, wires and other accessories are concealed.
In addition to television display, Closet and Storage Concepts can craft a custom entertainment center to include CD / DVD storage and shelving units so that your custom piece is a complete media storage solution for all your audio equipment, movies, music, vinyl albums (which are roaring back in vogue in a big way!), gaming systems, controllers, etc.
Do your own happiness samba and call Closet and Storage Concepts – 1-888-THE-CLOSET – today about customizing a home theater system room or custom entertainment center, in anticipation of those long winter nights. Before you know it, it will be dark by 5:00 PM. Do you want to be caught without your entertainment in place?
I didn’t think so.
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.
Stay organized my friends.

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.
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:
- 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”.
- 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…
- 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).
It seems that America has caught a case of lottery fever. Lately it seems that every week, headlines of a new mega-millions drawing is splashed over the newspapers and internet. Remote news broadcasts from convenience stores, showcasing the long lines of would-be winners, have become common. Photographs of smiling millionaires holding a press conference ending in the presentation of the ceremonial “big check” has become familiar to the point of ordinary.
Today a study by the English National Lottery Operator Camelot was released which outlined buying trends among lottery winners. Some of the results were expected. For example, half of the mega-winners moved into a new house within three months of the award, and a quarter of the winners put up fencing, secured by a gate, around their house.
Some results were somewhat unexpected, such as; 20% of winners purchasing a dog in the months immediately following the win.
The trend that struck me however, is that 1/3 of winners installed a walk-in closet in their home immediately following the big win. Like the dog-trend, one can only guess the psychology of such a purchase. My guess is that people yearn to benefit from something that they perceive as a luxury, but in practicality, like dog ownership, can be enjoyed within most people’s budget.

Closet & Storage Concepts honors military veterans all year round by offering service members a 10% discount on franchise fees, special military veteran financing of 50% of the initial fee for a period of 12 months at zero interest, and a team dedicated to supporting the veteran franchisee program, thus allowing veterans to use their training and operational skills in a new civilian career.

Jobs. “Being selected as a Military Friendly Franchise places Closet & Storage Concepts in this elite group, and is testimony to Closet & Storage Concept’s world class programs and policies that support military veterans interested franchise opportunities”
Using a Professional Closet Designer to Create Custom Storage Solutions vs. Using a Handyman or Honey-doBy csc-admin - April 17th, 2012
You are a spring-cleaning warrior.
Congratulations! You have fulfilled the first step in organizing your life by first ridding yourself of what has become useless to you. The second step is to create a closet organization system that uses this space efficiently, and for the specific use you intend.
BUT, before you call a handyman (or worse still, include closet design on your “honey-do list”), consider the benefits and cost-efficiency of having a closet storage professional design your closet space. The professionals at Closet and Storage Concepts are expert in creating practical, yet chic, closet space that is custom designed for your maximum closet space usage.
Benefits of using a closet designer with Closet and Storage Concepts over a handyman or honey-do:
- A professional closet designer knows the questions to ask about your unique storage needs and has intimate knowledge of the most innovative closet solutions available. This IS NOT the “one-size-fits-all approach your handyman, or honey-do (gasp!) utilizes.
- Using custom measurements, your professional closet designer will create a closet organization system that actually GIVES you new space, by adding adjustable shelving, double hung devises and drawers. What has your handyman GIVEN you lately?
- You can choose from a wide-variety of melamine and laminate finishes, manufactured using ¾” “furniture grade” melamine laminate in our local facilities. Your honey-do gives you one option: whatever is on sale at the home-mart store.
- Closet and Storage Concepts can make the most of your space by using: adjustable closet shelving, long, medium and double hang areas to maximize space, belt, tie and shoe racks, drawers, wall safes, valet rods, jewelry drawers, hosiery drawers, etc.
Your handyman or honey-do: they don’t have the expertise to include any of these closet storage innovations.
So, given the choice, who will you choose to design and create your custom closet design? The professionals at Closet and Storage Concepts, of course! Call us at 1-888-THE-CLOSET (1-888-843-2567).
