Wall Bed Creates Elegant Solution to Los Gatos Townhome Size Constraints

Posted by Mark Olson on Oct 30, 2018 3:31:31 PM

When I first talked to the owner of this 2-bedroom townhome she was clear about what she wanted, but was not sure how to have it all. She wanted a guest room for those times when friends or family came to stay, but that was only the case periodically throughout the year. At Valet Custom Cabinets & Closets we are committed to enhancing the use of each client’s individual space, so I set out to solve the dilemma for this client.

Los Altos Condo Gets a Contemporary Guest Room

Posted by Ward Wildanger on Sep 19, 2018 6:08:07 PM

When people come to visit, we want them to feel welcome and relaxed. But that doesn’t mean a guest room can’t be stylish and sophisticated, as well as bright and welcoming. I recently got to design a Los Altos guest room that combined all these aspects, and the results are stunning. Since the homeowners already had a wall bed and other built-in units from Valet Custom Cabinets & Closets, they knew that the quality and workmanship would be outstanding. It was up to me to come up with a design to match their guest room goal.

The Process of Custom Closet Design

Posted by Karin Parodi on Aug 21, 2018 4:15:18 PM

Everyday my clients walk into their closets with a mission; stepping in from the shower and emerging, fully dressed, shoes in hand, ready to face the day. After their new closet is done, the things they say are “I love getting dressed,” “you completely eliminated a huge marital pain point,” and even “you changed my life!” How can a custom closet make such a difference? Until you experience it, it’s hard to truly understand.

Technology and Employee Expertise Are the Keys to Valet Quality

Posted by Cecily Whiteside on Jul 31, 2018 3:30:39 PM

After sitting down with Valet Custom Cabinet & Closets owner Larry Fox and Operations Manager Scott Heeb, then touring the manufacturing facility, it was easy to see what sets Valet apart. In a word, it’s the people. While Valet’s continuing investment in state-of-the-art machinery plays a vital role as well, it comes down to the experience and dedication of the team at Valet which gives them such an edge.

Unique Space Enhancement Solutions is Why “Custom” is in the Name

Posted by Cecily Whiteside on Jun 28, 2018 3:09:42 PM

When I first walked into the Campbell Valet Custom Cabinets & Closets showroom, it was clear that the primary priority was quality cabinetry. Each drawer I opened or cabinet I peered into in the full-size displays of closets, wall beds, home offices and even garages spoke to this commitment. The second thing that struck me was the sheer number of options available for a custom design.

A Houseful of Closets for a Growing Family

Posted by Karin Parodi on Jun 19, 2018 8:01:20 AM

When my clients’ house flooded, they needed to replace all their closets. Like new construction, a complete rebuild can be hard to wrap your head around. The possibilities are almost endless; limited only by your imagination. After both their architect and their contractor recommended me and Valet Custom Cabinets & Closets, I came on board to help them figure out what they needed and design their space.

Home Office & Media Center Combination Makes the Most of a Small Space

Posted by Robert Gudanets on May 30, 2018 2:46:37 PM

With so many of us spending hours every day in our home office – either as a home-based business or as a remote worker – having a functional space is important to productivity. As a designer for Valet Custom Cabinets & Closets, I needed a place to meet with clients and a place to work on the computer creating designs. But limited space meant I needed to combine my office with a family room. I wanted to be able to relax and watch TV after the workday was over.

Condo Redesign Takes an Unused Space from Homely to Home Run

Posted by Marina Moreno on Mar 29, 2018 9:56:16 AM

I came on board this project along with fellow Valet Custom Cabinets & Closets designer, Ward Wildanger, when the homeowner became frustrated with delays and setbacks in his remodel. He wanted storage solutions in the large, open area on his bottom floor to provide functionality, but wanted those solutions to be aesthetically pleasing as well. His general contractor had not provided him with viable options, so he started researching online. He found Valet Custom Closets & Cabinets. We were able to come alongside, work with the contractor, and make this space everything the homeowner hoped for, on time, beautifully designed, and expertly installed. He was so pleased with our involvement, that he asked us to design other rooms as well, providing a uniform look throughout the home with high-quality storage in the master bedroom, bathroom, pantry and media center.
