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.

Do you remember the song, “Do You Know The Way To San Jose”? I hum it nearly every time I’m in town. It needs a follow-up, though. Namely, what do you do once you reach San Jose? Where do you go? Where do you live? Because the housing market here is pretty tight. Homes have reached a record high of over $800,000 on average (which is actually lower than Santa Clara County, which has topped $1 million). Knowing the way to San Jose is only half the ballgame.
