Snow White Master Closet

A white closet is a classic, timeless closet. It can still express personality. It can definitely keep you organized and looking stylish.

We had a great opportunity to design one of these timeless, white closets that was part of an expanded bonus space above an existing garage and located right off the master bedroom.

The layout before we were brought in had two reach in closets that really did not provide much in terms of storage and they took away space from the bedroom.

The original version of the newly proposed plan was to have flat 8 foot ceilings. We convinced them that leaving the pitched ceilings and actually dry walling the joists would give them more space to work with and bring them closer to their desired goal. By incorporating the idea of dry walling the joists on the angled roof lines, we were able to make this space look more like like a luxurious closet suite and less like a crawl space.

The client wanted to display her personally prized collection of shoes and handbags. She also wanted a make-up counter (which we up-lit). And then, a more unusual request for a bedroom closet, she wanted a wrapping station incorporated into the design.

We used a frosty white melamine with a charcoal glazed raised panel for the doors and drawers. We also incorporated large crown moulding. All of this worked in harmony with the the existing wall color and millwork to create a clean, snow white look.

The special features on the makeup area include a light box tray with a frosted glass insert routed into the counter top, in counter lighting, large framed viewing mirror , side make-up storage drawers, blow dryer holster and upper storage cabinets with LED down lighting.

It's a closet space that works well for the client. Why not give us a call so we can design a closet space that works well for you?



Closet Organizing Systems Earns Top Shelf Awards for 2016

Over the past five years Closet Organizing Systems has won a total of 13 Top Shelf Design Awards and 5 runner up nominations from CLOSETS magazine. For the year of 2016, in the Home Office Over 150 square feet category, Dan Gagnon received the award for his AAA Walnut Office Wall Unit project. Also awarded, in the Closet Laminate Over 18 linear feet category, Donna Siben received an award for her Glamorous Double Master Closet Retreat project. We would like to thank everyone for all of their amazing work and dedication!

AAA Walnut Office Wall Unit

The AAA Walnut Office Wall Unit was designed to achieve a modern high end look using AAA grade plain sliced sequenced matched walnut veneer. The cabinetry was lightly stained to more closely match the existing wood work in the home. Slotted upper fascia sections were used for ventilation openings and rebound style touch latches were used to eliminate the need for visible hardware. LED light strips and puck lighting aid in showcasing display areas.

Glamorous Double Master Closet Retreat

The Glamorous Double Master Closet Retreat project was part of a major renovation with the closet being one of the largest square footage spaces in the design. The closet was designed from floor to ceiling with cabinets spanning the top and wrapping around the corners to connect the three sections of this closet. The narrow island is used to house ‘His’ shoes while ‘Her’ shoes are showcased on a wall of open shelving. Seventy-one drawers were needed to accomplish enough storage for personal items. The closet was constructed of White Melamine and traditional raised panel faces along with Extra-large crown molding and fascia buildup span and wrap around the entire closet. This closet is also graced with an ironing center cabinet, safe, tilt out hamper and pull out narrow tall cabinets to house necklaces and scarves, pull out mirror, belt racks, tie & belt butlers and valet rods. The island counter-tops are made with High Pressure Laminate to match the hardwood floor.

CLOSETS magazine founded the Top Shelf Design Awards program to honor the best residential closet and garage designs across the United States.
