Cooking with Kids: Classes in HoustonApril 16, 2014
Prep for a Smooth SummerMay 2, 2014
A closet conversion might not sound like the most exciting renovation you can undertake, but it’s arguably one of the most satisfying—especially if you’re tackling the kids’ closet. Imagine—neatly folded clothes in drawers, shelves lined with shoeboxes, or even (dare you dream?) pre-sorted laundry ready to be picked up and carried right to the laundry room. The perfect project for summer, a closet conversion is great for a middle school student transitioning to high school; it’s no secret that teenagers can be messy, and a closet renovation can help foster organizational habits.
We love using social media to find design inspiration, and that goes for closets, too. We have found so many incredible designs using both Houzz and Pinterest; whether you are looking for DIY on a budget, or high-end ideas to bring to one of our Cabinets & Designs designers, social media will help inspire you from the grand design down to the smallest detail.
Not sure if you can afford the closet makeover of your dreams? That’s what we’re here for—stop in to see us at Cabinets & Designs to sit down with a designer to weigh your options. We estimate the value of your project using your plans and selections from our lines of Wood-Mode, Brookhaven, and now Canyon Creek Closets Plus.
Eventually, the kids move out, and then what? If you are converting a closet for a teenager, keep in mind that soon that closet will be yours, so ask yourself how you might use that space in the near future. Designing a space for optimum efficiency and long-term use is something our designers excel at, and will keep that space useable for years to come—long after the kids move out.
Outside the Box
What if that closet wasn’t a closet? If a closet in your home underused as a storage space, consider repurposing it, and let your imagination run wild: a reading nook, a playroom, a secret pirate hideaway—the sky is the limit!
A closet renovation fits perfectly in between summer activity sessions and family vacations. Stop in, consult with one of our designers, and have better storage space by the time school starts in the fall.
