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.

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.

Custom Design Helps Willow Glen Husband and Wife Share a Small Closet

Posted by Larry Fox on Oct 20, 2016 1:01:51 PM

Renovating a home isn’t a vacation for most folks, but a client I worked with in the Willow Glen area of San Jose was more stressed than usual. She was going through a remodel of a gorgeous Colonial Revival built back in the mid-1900s. The house needed updates, of course, but she’d also purchased it with her second husband. Once the remodel was done, they would be moving in together with all of their kids—and sharing a closet for the first time.

Creating a Freestanding Closet in Your Willow Glen Basement: Transforming Space in San Jose's "Small Town"

Posted by Larry Fox on May 5, 2016 4:32:47 PM

Have you ever gone shopping in Willow Glen? This growing neighborhood in San Jose – known as its “Small Town”– is full of charming houses and luxury condominiums, with dozens of boutiques around Lincoln Avenue. There’s a lot to buy, from hot new tech to antiques. And if you’re anything like me, when you buy new stuff, you make a solemn pledge to get rid of the old stuff – a pledge that’s quickly broken. And so the clothes, and the electronics, and the knickknacks pile up in our homes.
