Get Organized in Style with St. Louis Closet

CUSTOM-DESIGNED SPACES TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS While there may be countless “one-size-fits-all” organizational options available at retail stores, nothing can beat a closet system that is built to your space’s specifications with only your needs in mind.

StlHome

The systems made by Saint Louis Closet Co. do not include any pre-made parts, sizes, or components, and they are completely adjustable, meaning your closet can change as your needs do. The company’s designers will meet with you, analyze your needs, measure, and design the perfect customized closet and organizational system for you.

A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING/ EVERYTHING IN ITS PLACE Gone are the days of scarves and shoes strewn about your closet space or loosely contained in store-bought plastic bins. The beauty of custom-designed closet spaces is that there’s an attractive storage solution for all of your items. A list of seemingly endless custom options are available at Saint Louis Closet Co. to ensure your new closet system is both functional and beautiful, both space-saving and eye-catching.

Some of the customizable options available include pant racks, shoe shelves, glass door and drawer fronts, basket liners, jewelry drawers with divider inserts, belt and tie racks, and scarf racks. Many of these options can be added during the original installation or even years later. The systems are fully adjustable to change with your needs.

BEYOND THE CLOSET Don’t let the name fool you—Saint Louis Closet Co. is much more than custom closet systems; the company also specializes in pantries, home offices, Murphy beds, laundry rooms, mudrooms, linen closets, coat closets, lockers, craft centers, garages, and more. Imagine the ease of cooking when your pantry contains neatly stocked spice racks, pull-out drawers, and basket-rim shelves. Or imagine how much more you’ll want to do that pile of laundry when everything is accessible, from fold-down ironing boards and tilt-out laundry hampers to telescoping rods and wardrobe rails for drying and ironing.

Saint Louis Closet Co. Pantries!!

Second to the master closet, pantries are on the top of homeowners’ lists to organize with customized shelving and accessories; this is no surprise since the kitchen is often considered “the heart of the home.”

Where does everyone wind up at a party…in the kitchen. According to Closets Magazine, when touring model homes, visitors spend more time in the kitchen than any other room in the home.  Saint Louis Closet Co. has noticed that with the increase in popularity of purchasing in bulk from large box stores, there is more and more focus on storage of foods, paper goods, and even excess dishes and appliances. Saint Louis Closet Co. custom closets can truly make a difference in your pantry.

Maximizing your kitchen pantry with corner shelving, platter dividers and adjustable shelving for the varied size items stored in pantries can make overall kitchen storage simpler. Chrome pull-out wine racks store wine bottles at a 15-degree angle to ensure corks remain moist in storage. Pull-out chrome baskets in various size are perfect for paper goods, chips, and recycling. And don’t forget tray shelves and basket-rimmed shelves for canned goods and small boxes.

Once you’ve realized there’s a place for everything in your Saint Louis Closet Co. pantry…then everything will be in its place in your kitchen!  Saint Louis Closet Co. offers free in-home design consultations for all areas of your home. Call us at (314) 781-9000 or visit us online at www.stlouisclosetco.com.

Every year January is designated Get Organized Month by NAPO (National Association of Professional Organizers).  Starting the new year off organized can help you with time management and increased productivity.  It can also save you money and time!

Saint Louis Closet Co Logo

Top 6 Areas People want Organized:  Office/Home Office, Kitchen, Closets, Master Bedroom, Garage, Attics and Basements and Laundry Rooms.

Getting Organized creates many benefits such as relieving stress and anxiety, having more useable space and having a general sense of control and calm.  When homes are organized and everyone has a place for their stuff, family life is happier and there is more free time for fun and relaxation.

Start small, a drawer or closet…then move to rooms that need the most help.  Create locker areas for member of the family, establish a ‘drop area’ for backpacks, wallets and purses.  Create a system for incoming paperwork (mail, bills, schedules, emails, etc).  Donate unused clothes and toys to local charities and clear out space!!  Create More Space Places!

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!
