These Customized Closets Will Help Control Your Wardrobe
A modular closet system can help you get your clothes organized, stat! Here are the suppliers to head to.
Urban homes and condos are usually fitted out with standard built-in closets when turned over, but as every woman and shopaholic knows, the closet space is never enough. The solution to this is getting a modular closet system for your wardrobe.
But first, what exactly are modular closets? These are closet and storage systems that are customized according to your wardrobe needs and lifestyle. Most systems have standard-size components, such as shelving, clothing rails, and drawers, but most can be customized to accommodate shoe cabinets, accessory drawers, belt rails, specialty lighting, vanity counters, and even islands for a walk-in-closet.
If your closet is getting out of control, you can go to an interior designer, or head to a modular closet supplier to have your wardrobe customized based on the type and amount of clothing you have and the available floor space (purging also helps!). Here are the modular closet stores and suppliers to check out:
“Transformer” closets: ErgoHome
Coffee tables that sink into living room floors, Murphy beds that vanish into closets, entire kitchens that disappear into walls—these are but a few of the amazing space-saving customizable pieces at ErgoHome.
Aside from the collapsible beds, workstations, and living areas, the store offers well-planned and designed cabinetry systems, which are must-haves for small homes and condo units (studio units, especially). A visit to one of their showrooms merits a video post of the furniture pieces in action!
