The Process of Custom Closet Design

Posted by Karin Parodi on Aug 21, 2018 4:15:18 PM

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.

Custom Storage Solutions For Your Blackhawk Garage: Storing Golf Clubs And Much More

Posted by Larry Fox on May 10, 2016 2:53:36 PM

I was recently sitting in the spacious kitchen of a home in the Blackhawk community outside Danville with some clients. They live near the country club, so golf came up. The couple were excellent golfers, with very low handicaps, and their enthusiasm was contagious. They’d gotten each other new clubs last Christmas, and when I asked to see them, we went to the garage. That’s when the situation got complicated.

Any time we do work in Los Gatos, we see the same thing: families strolling around the beautiful, walkable downtown, people getting ready to hike the Santa Cruz foothills, and friends having brunch at the Los Gatos Cafe. It’s a great area, and since it’s within commuting distance of the tech businesses in San Francisco and Silicon Valley, it’s an ideal place to live, especially for people who are moving out of the city and starting a family, and they’re looking for more space.  But we also see people whose big houses simply don’t have enough storage and clothing space because the builder made the closet an afterthought.

We’ve been working in and around Berkeley for a long time, and we know it’s a place people want to live. But because so many people want to live here, the city has been forced to tighten up its zoning laws. As a result, we’re seeing more and more accessory dwelling units, or ADUs, that are able to serve many functions. These small spaces can transition over the years, changing from a home office, to a guest room, to a storage area and more. Here at Valet Custom Cabinets & Closets, we often see ADUs being used for aging relatives who are looking to stay close to family.

Bay area residents appreciate the natural beauty, and eco-friendly building materials are another way to express appreciation for nature.

As a long-time California resident, I know about the area’s relationship with nature. Around the Bay--and up and down the valley--is a surprising amount of natural beauty along with the beautiful new homes, spectacular redesigns, and architecturally-imaginative new tech headquarters. We don’t really care much for sterile office parks (and thankfully many of the tech companies building campuses in the area agree), and we know what we build should complement nature. But we also know that there is no need to sacrifice beauty or design for earth-friendly choices. When it comes to maximizing space, eco-friendly materials go hand-in-hand with smart and elegant design.
