Custom Cabinetry: Making the Most of a Small Space!


Anita B. from San Jose was looking to add a lot of function into a VERY small space. She worked with Valet Designer Shari Krandel to come up with the perfect custom solution for her office/guest room!

Anita wanted a fully functioning office that also worked as a guest room for her daughter when she comes to visit, as well as for other visitors. Shari was working with a room that was about 9' x 9' and needed to include a hefty list of features, including a bed, a work space, two wardrobes, a bookcase, a seating area, file drawers and storage. Wow! Here is the design concept that Shari created for Anita:


Here is the final product. There are a lot of surprises hiding in here!


This office space is now a fully functioning guest room with a full-sized bed, complete with a Sommerset Comfort Care mattress from Restonic. To the left of the bed is a night stand hiding in the top drawer, as well as a space for hanging clothes. There are three overhead LED puck lights in the wall bed, controlled by a rocker switch conveniently located on the headboard to make for easy reading in bed.


When the bed is folded up, the room has a nice bench for sitting, with convenient storage underneath.


Since there was very limited space to work with, Shari wanted to make sure to be as efficient as possible. The design of these shelves makes the most out of a small corner!


This room is also a functioning office, and so needed a work space, as well. This drop front desk includes plenty of room for storing regularly used items, with the ability to close it all away when guests arrive. It also features file drawers with locks for a little extra privacy when guests are using the room.


Cabinetry made of white melamine with white thermofoil drawer and door fronts. Contemporary bar pulls in satin nickel finish made by Hafele. Wall bed puck lights are super energy efficient LED.

As you can see, Shari was able to pack this small space with plenty of functionality. This is a great example of the truly custom, specialty work that the designers at Valet Custom Cabinets & Closets can do for any space. Our client was very happy with the results, but don't take our word for it! Read her testimonial here!
