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.

External Wardrobes Help New San Francisco Condo Owners Maximize Their Space

Custom Closets Organize Your New Walnut Creek Condo Your Way

Posted by Larry Fox on Nov 29, 2016 2:12:43 PM


Walnut Creek is one of my favorite towns in the whole Bay Area. It’s a cool little arts hub, with a history of being quirky and dancing to its own beat. People there love their art, and they also love their wine. I love the galleries and restaurants that populate the downtown scene. You can go there and feel for a little bit like nothing has changed around the area.

A Contemporary Makeover for a San Francisco Condo

Posted by Tracey Lee Davis on Jun 9, 2016 9:35:43 AM

We were contacted by a couple who had retired, moved from the Peninsula to San Francisco, and purchased a lovely 2-bedroom condominium near the ballpark with incredible views of downtown San Francisco. They wanted to update their space to fit their style and needs. With the help of interior designer Kimball Starr, they worked with Larry Fox and went with very contemporary styling throughout their new home.

San Francisco is one of America’s great cities, and it’s the heart of the tech industry. What it isn’t, always, is the easiest place to commute to. The difficult (some use stronger language) commute is why so many people who work here own a studio condo or loft which they stay in for the week, then go home to Mountain View, Palo Alto, Santa Clara, south San Jose or other Bay Area cities like Los Gatos on the weekends.
