Posted by Sarah Whitely on Feb 19, 2012 2:41:00 PM

I have about ten bags of clothes that I know I am never going to wear again, either because they don’t get past my calves when trying them on, or the shoulder pads are too extreme! But there is help for our closets.

Closet Organization: A Valet Client Bravely Shares Her Closet

Posted by Sarah Whitely on Feb 19, 2012 2:28:00 PM

I’ve had closets and I’ve had CLOSETS…meaning, not all closets are created equal.
When I have a walk-in, I dress better because I can see where everything is, but a well designed reach-in can also enhance one’s personal style. I love me a walk-in.

This video features our client Joelle’s closet during a home design consultation by one of our fantastic designer’s, Robert. it may make you feel better about YOUR closet.

Then there are celebrity closets…then there is a COURTNEY Love closet, if you know what I mean.

But the girl knows her fashion, and it was interesting to learn that she began her style career at Paramount Studios, where she was in charge of throwing away vintage clothes that had seen better days…well, she did not throw them away, and the video at the bottom of the article from The Daily Mail Online, Be careful not to burn a HOLE in that! Courtney Love chain smokes as she gives a tour of her expensive vintage closet, features a few of these beauties and Ms. Love’s creative solutions to making them stage worthy, which in her case, is every time she steps out of the house.

And don’t forget that at Valet Custom Cabinets & Closets we have closets that can provide closets storage systems even the most extensive collection of clothes; from the industry-standard Basic closet to the customizable Classic model, then up to the ultimate in luxurious wardrobe systems, our Siena Collection.

Small Cars Surge in Popularity: I'm on My Fifth Mitata!

Posted by Sarah Whitely on Feb 19, 2012 2:25:00 PM

I’m on my fifth Miata now, because it just fits me like a glove and I love its look, but even for the general population, it looks like small cars are back in vogue as fuel economy standards will be getting significantly stricter in the near future.

Besides liking apple pie, Americans like their cars with power and style, so automakers are polishing up what’s under the hood as well as the outside to meet both fuel economy and our love of individuality on the road.

So I thought that this special Cars section of the New York Times was interesting enough to share with you, with six articles covering everything from used cars to hot rods, not only because we love to read about new automobile technology, but the slide show rocks!

And we here at Valet Custom Cabinets & Closets have an interest too, as we feel our garage storage and floor solutions  offer the best value and functionality available; did you know that the attractive and durable Granitex Epoxy flooring is car AND pet resistant? How many times have you put your pet in the garage only to discover that there’s been a little accident? Ugh! With cement, what happens there stays there, so check it out!

And please be sure to visit one of our Showrooms in Campbell and Danville to see for yourself the storage and space saving ideas that can turn a wall into a bed, office, media center, sewing or hobby center…you simply won’t believe your eyes!

And if you like these stories, please be sure to “Like” us on Facebook so we know we are entertaining you as well as sharing Valet Custom Cabinets & Closet’s storage solutions.

The Zoom Bed: The Bed That Disapears During the Day

Posted by Sarah Whitely on Feb 19, 2012 2:01:00 PM

As featured on networks ABC and HGTV, the Zoom Bed, designed by Japanese architect Yuko Shibaga, features an articulated mattress that actually goes up behind the enclosing cabinet, rather than being pulled down. This allows the “wall” to feature bookcases, or a TV or a picture…whatever you want.

Our display model has the large TV option, so you can lie in bed and watch TV, but during the day, all your guest see is a beautiful customized wall unit.
