In San Francisco, space is at a premium. One way to take advantage of every inch is with a built-in wall bed and external wardrobe unit from Valet Custom Cabinets & Closets. I was able to create just such a space-saving solution for some homeowners near the Presidio.
Custom Wall Beds,
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

As I approached this project, my challenge was that there was not a lot of square footage to work with. How could we accommodate occasional guests when most of the free space was in the main living area? There was also a lack of storage in general that I would have to solve at the same time that I provided some options for guests’ belongings.
