Storage Options

One of the by-products of our consumer-based society is that we all accumulate “stuff,” from sports equipment and garden tools to holiday decorations, craft and hobby gear, and clothing we seldom wear. Some of us (hint hint to my wife DeDe) gather so much stuff that it commandeers our closets, attics and garages and then overflows to outdoor sheds and rented storage units. Over time, we become increasingly disorganized, stressed and inconvenienced.

Remodeling contractors, along with design professionals and product manufacturers, recognize that homeowners are looking for some relief to their storage woes. To that end, a variety of products and organizational ideas have developed for every nook and cranny of the house to add capacity and organization.

In a clothes closet, for example, the system includes open shelves, door and drawer cabinets, tilted shoe and sweater racks, hanger rods, hooks, and laundry hampers. These parts can be assembled and arranged according to a homeowner’s particular needs. As those needs change — as children grow older, for example — the pieces can be moved, replaced, or supplemented.

In the kitchen and laundry room, cabinet and appliance manufacturers offer numerous options to increase storage capacity and organization. In addition to handy drop-down drawers and roll-out shelves, many cabinet companies provide in-drawer organizers, dedicated trash and recycling bins, and adjustable shelving to suit a variety of needs. In the laundry room, pedestal drawers provide extra storage while raising the height of the washer and dryer, making them easier to use as well.

Today’s modular storage systems are available in a wide variety of styles and prices, from luxurious, all-wood components that enhance any master suite to ventilated coated wire sections that make sense for kids rooms and utility areas. Even if there is enough land and budget to add square footage to an existing house, it only makes sense to make every inch — in old rooms as well as new — as space-efficient as possible.

Save the Date(s). Attention all PAST and future Customers. Two key events are coming up….First, we are going to have a Grand Re-Opening Event on Friday September 11th from 4-7pm and Saturday September 12th from 3pm-6pm show off our recent changes to our Showroom & Design Center. And second, we will be holding our 3rd Annual Remodeled Homes Tour on Wednesday October 14th from 6-8pm. We will be touring two recently completed projects in Plano. First on the tour will be a major kitchen renovation that included “bump outs” to expand the kitchen and dinning room areas. And second, we’ll tour a completely renovated master bathroom. We will have refreshments and light food at both events. Please RSVP to 972.334.9800 if you are able to attend.

Warm regards,
