Meet the Men of Saint Louis Closet Co.

The Guys

Saint Louis Closet Co. is proud to shine the spotlight on the backbone of our company with a salute to our installation and manufacturing team!  These men have been loyal members of our business, averaging 15 years of working for the company.  We even have men who have worked here for almost 20 years!

“Our installers are the absolute best in the business,” says Saint Louis Closet Co. owner Jennifer Williams.  “They are professional, dedicated and, most importantly, they love what they do.  I consider each of them members of my family and I am so thankful to have been able to share these first 21 years of business with them!”

The men pictured (left) include the installers who do the actual closet installations in our customers’ homes as well as the staff that works in our manufacturing facility located in our Maplewood Showroom.  They are responsible for getting all of the parts ready for installation so that the process can be as quick and easy as our customers have come to expect.

Thank you for all of your hard work over the years, gentlemen!

This Decade’s Biggest Trend in Home Organization

Question: What is the biggest trend right now in home organization? If you said master bedroom, you’re wrong: it’s Murphy beds!  Surprised? Don’t be! This “retro” product is making a comeback in a BIG way!

Murphy beds have been around since 1900 when William Lawrence Murphy opened the Original Murphy Bed Company with the goal of creating a room that could double as a bedroom—very handy in the space-strapped apartments in San Francisco, where the business was founded. From there, Murphy beds exploded in popularity, popping up everywhere from apartments and homes to hotels and colleges.  The trend slowed down during the middle part of the 1900s, but since the 2000s hit, it has been making a steady resurgence.

Here are a few reasons this trend is coming back in full force in 2010:

Reason #1 : BUDGET. Probably the most obvious reason, people don’t have the same big budgets they had ten years ago. Renovating by adding an additional room just isn’t an option. Homeowners are quickly realizing that Murphy beds are the easiest and most cost-efficient option for giving a room multiple uses.

Reason #2 : CITY LIVING. More and more professionals are moving to big cities and smaller spaces. With the city loft developments, people need to utilize every inch of space in their living quarters. Murphy beds allow people to have their bed without having to give up the floor space for it.

Reason #3 : BABY BOOMERS. As baby boomers reach their retirement years, they are installing Murphy beds in their spare bedrooms for visiting family members. A Murphy bed turns what used to be a bedroom into a home office, entertainment room or craft area that happens to also have a bed for guests.

One thing that many people are concerned about when it comes to purchasing a Murphy bed is the mattress.  Many companies require that you purchase the mattress yourself, but ensuring the proper fit can become a guessing game.  That is why every Murphy bed that Saint Louis Closet Co. installs comes with either a Twin- or Queen-size mattress!

Another benefit of Murphy beds is that they don’t stick out like a sore thumb.  Saint Louis Closet Co. specializes in creating elegant yet functional Murphy beds that can be customized even further by installing matching shelving or even a desk.  This way, these rooms have the most efficient use of space possible, which is something everyone needs, no matter the size of their home or room.

Call Saint Louis Closet Co. at (314) 781-9000 for more information about how you can get a Murphy bed in your own home!
