2 Organized Custom Closets with Before & Afters


Sep 14, 2014

I tackled this organizing project a few weeks ago but haven’t had a chance to put together this blog post featuring the closet before and afters.  I originally started this custom closet project during a relocation that we helped a family with in June.  After unpacking and organizing the kids’ closets I suggested that they replace the current system with a custom cabinet system from Valet. Both kids needed more storage and a system that they can grow into, plus the closets needed a luxury touch to match the style of the home.  You’ll see what I mean in the before and afters.

When I help manage a custom closet project with Valet I work with the client to sort and purge the space.  I manage the prep process (pulling out the existing system, patching and painting, etc.), and then on installation day once the cabinets are installed I start my organizing magic. For this project I was hoping to have Taylor’s help but we’ve been so busy she had to manage a different project on the same day.  My entire team has been stretched thin lately, I’m hoping we can catch up soon!

This first closet belongs to a high school girl.  She is very active with sports and loves fashion so it was important to organize everything so it would be logical and visible at the same time.  Like many high school kids in Silicon Valley she has a crazy schedule and I know the closet won’t stay perfectly organized but I’m hoping she will make time each day to put things in their place.  She and I will work together in the future for maintenance and purging so the space can stay under control.

Organized Laundry Room with Before and Afters

Kuzak's Closet Organized Laundry Room

There is something so refreshing about a clean and organized laundry room. I love it when all of the household cleaning products are physically and visually accessible.  Today I am sharing before and afters from a recent laundry room transformation.  For this project it was all about making things visible and clutter free so that all of the “users” in the home could use the space efficiently and maintain it.  My client has 5 kids ranging from the mid-twenties to early thirties and they are always finding a reason to drop by their childhood home to do a load of laundry or grab a bite to eat. 


My client’s biggest complaint about the space during our initial consultation was that it wasn’t pretty. She said it didn’t feel like part of their home.  It’s the first room people see when they come to the home and the last room they see when they leave. I suggested that we remove the existing cabinetry because it was difficult to access and hardly being utilized.  I wanted to take advantage of the vertical wall space for storage so I arranged for a handyman to come and install simple melamine shelving.  We created a storage plan based on a quick inventory of the items she was currently using/storing.  While he was there he also gave the walls, trim, and ceiling a fresh coat of paint, it made quite the difference!  The space is so much brighter and inviting, makes you want to throw in a load of laundry doesn’t it?
