Three Common Closet Items That Always Seem to Be Without a Place

Closet JobsEveryone hopes for an organized closet—a place for everything and everything in its place. Unfortunately, there are a lot of small items that never seem to have a place in a traditional closet. Here are a few of the items that cause the most frustration.

Ties and Scarves

The only way to store ties and scarves in a traditional closet is to hang them on a hanger or on the clothing rod itself. If you hang them on a hanger, they can easily become wrinkled when pushed together with other items. If you hang them on the clothing rod, you risk knocking them off every time you get in your closet.

Shoes

If you only have a few pairs of shoes, you probably have ample room on the floor of your traditional closet to store them. But if you have different shoes for different occasions and outfits, you might need some additional space to store your shoes. Some people store shoes in their boxes in the bottom or top shelf of the closet, but then it becomes a chore to find the right pair of shoes on the right day.

Three Rooms that Benefit from Built-In Cabinets

When you are building a new home or remodeling an old one, you want to make sure that everything is just as perfect as it can be.

The Best Storage Solutions for Sporting Goods

If you lead a very active lifestyle, chances are you have a lot of sporting goods. Sporting goods are one of the most difficult things to store out of the way in an organized manner. Balls roll, poles and bats fall to the side, and protection gear doesn’t fit well on a standard closet shelf. The end result is that if you have traditionally built closets, all of your sporting goods end up in the bottom of a closet completely disorganized. If you want to avoid those closets that have things spilling out of them, you’ll need some custom closet solutions.

Ball Storage

Whether you are storing basketballs, baseballs, softballs, soccer balls, footballs, tennis balls, or golf balls, you need reliable storage that won’t have them rolling all over the place. The best ball storage is a large pull out drawer in the bottom of a closet. With a large enough drawer, you can store a number of balls of varying shapes and sizes in a way that will be easy to find without them rolling when you get into the closet for something else.

Closet solutions can help you do just that.

Choking Hazards

You might be surprised at the things that pose a choking hazard to infants and young children.
