Maximize Closet Space while remaining true to Architecture

describe the imageBill lives in a turn-of-the-century home in Long Island where we’ve designed and installed custom closets as he has renovated the home.  The master bedroom had an unwieldy and unsightly closet addition that a previous owner had installed.  Working with Bill’s contractor, we made recommendations to change the structure of the closet to meld with the style of the home, and add new doors that would allow easy access to the reach-in-closet.  The creative closet solutions included varying the depths of the units (drawers are deeper) so that the storage above the shelves is accessible for pillows and blankets.  Now, Bill not only has a beautiful closet and readily accessible storage, but he has increased the resale value of his home by maximizing the closet space in the master bedroom.  The closet organization ideas included sizing the drawers precisely to accommodate Bill's DVD collection, so that he can use those drawers for DVDs or clothing.  While the cost was affordable, the impact is significant.
