We have come out with a new product called the everyday line.  It is perfect for the smaller closet interiors.  We still use the best products that are in the marketplace, but we are launching a more basic option from our custom line.  It is a flat panel closet interior system only.  The savings are considerable as the cost difference between the two system is about 30% less in White.  The new line does not go to the floor, it only comes in white, 14″ deep, 3/4″ thick with 1/2mm edge tape.  We use our same design expertise to design the closets, and our expert team to install the closet.  This can only be used for closet interiors such as kids rooms, Master closets, front and back hall closets, linen closets and Storage.  Cannot be used for Pantry applications or home offices.  It’s a great way to get a quality product on a budget.

Organizing your drawers with Calgary Custom Closets

We are forever trying to fit everything into drawers. The idea is that in drawers it is “put away”. With that mind set it seems everything gets put into drawers. It would seem the organized way to go but there are some things to think about when putting clothes into drawers.
 Are your clothes easily accessible in that space?
 Can you find things quickly?
 Is the drawer size what you need for what you are putting in?
 How are you putting things into the drawer?
 Are you going to remember what is where?

These questions can be answered with options that sometimes do not require drawers. The Questions are there for you to think about how you are using your drawers. Are drawers functional if you are using them to put your t-shirts, sweaters and folded pants into? The Answer to that is no. The best way to store your sweater, t-shirts and folded pants is on a shelf. On a shelf you can see all of your t-shirts without having to have dig through a drawer to find out what is on the bottom. The best rule of thumb is that if it falls off, rolls off or looks messy on a shelf it belongs in a drawer. This accounts for under garments, lingerie, pajamas, swimwear, workout clothes, etc. If you still want to have the look of “put away” you can always put doors in front of the shelves to hid the space, but when you open the doors you will still be able to see all of the clothes behind in on glance. Once you have this sorted out then it’s getting the space inside your drawers organized. You can use drawer dividers to organize one drawer for two uses. For instance you can have socks and underwear in the same drawer by dividing the drawer into two different spaces with the divider so that both socks and underwear aren’t floating around in the same drawer. Drawer dividers can also be used to make over sized drawers more useful. Labeling drawers is also a better way of organizing spaces. However putting a label at the front of the drawers will detract from the look of the space. You can put a small label at the top of the drawer box in the interior of the drawer, so it is not noticeable from the front but gives you what you need to know quickly.

Have Fun Organizing
