Closet Envy featured on Good Morning Texas

We are SO excited that our very own Senior Designer Rhonda Ray based in Dallas, Texas was featured on Good Morning Texas yesterday morning! She showcased our gorgeous closets in the Booth Brothers Homes model at Montgomery Farm in Allen, Texas!

If you missed it live, watch it below:

In it she emphasizes how important closets are to your daily life. They are where you start & end your day. If they are cluttered & not functional, they can really effect your life in a major way!

She also pointed out that we include 4 free hours of on-site Professional Organization with every project of $4,000 or more! We only partner with the best, licensed professional organizers to make sure that our clients get the very best!

Some of our clients enjoy utilizing the Professional Organizing services both before & after we install their new closet. First to declutter their closets & ensure that only the correct items stay, and then to organize their newly installed closet by putting away all of their items! How much would this impact your life to have a master closet that is both gorgeous and fully functional?

She also mentioned that we will SOON have 20… that’s right… TWENTY new colors to choose from exclusively at The Closet Envy to completely customize your dream closet! We are so excited to show you all the new line of product! More on that soon… stay tuned to our blog to learn more!

I Just had a Brand New Closet Envy System Installed… Now what?

So you’ve decided to make an incredible investment in your home by having The Closet Envy install a custom closet system! Congratulations! Now that you have the perfect functional and beautiful blank canvas to work with, you can start to fill it with your own items!  

If you’re wanting your closet to look absolutely Pinterest-worthy, it’s important to keep your new space as streamlined as possible by arranging each item of clothing appropriately. In order to utilize your brand new closet in the most efficient way possible, remember to keep unnecessary items (aka clutter) far away!

Utilize these 8 Pro-Tips:

 

  1. Group like with like: Since your clothing & accessories have already been removed before your Closet Envy System was installed, now is the perfect opportunity to group your items! Start by sorting your hanging clothes by type. Divide your clothing by person (should you be sharing a closet with your significant other). Then, divide the clothing by work, casual, and dressy attire. (*NOTE: leave your sweaters in a separate pile, you’ll see why soon!) Next, you should sort these items further by type… pants, skirts, dresses, shirts, blouses, etc. Now that you have these groups sorted out, sort them further by length… short sleeved shirts to long sleeved, short dresses to long dresses, tight fitting pants to looser ones, etc. Now it’s time to hang! Make sure you keep a little bit of space in between each section to save time searching!
  2. Organize shoes by type: Did you get a jaw-dropping highly illuminated Closet Envy shoe wall like this one? Make sure to do it justice by sorting your shoes by type, color, and “prettiness.” Pro-tip: When organizing heels, make sure to have one pointing towards the wall, and one facing outward as shown in this photo! 
  3. Hang your pants on top: Wait… what? It may seem more than a bit odd to have your pants on top when their worn… on bottom… if you follow this tip you will get the illusion of more space because your pants will inevitably take up less space than your shirts. So: start by folding your pants in half, and then hanging them on the top rod! If you’d rather not have your pants hung, they can also be folded and placed on your shelves instead.
  4. Add baskets to cubby spaces: There are endless designs of baskets to match with any decor. These baskets are the perfect place to keep socks, bathing suits, and other smaller items. Storing these items in baskets will create greater visibility, allowing you to easily find exactly what you need, unlike if you were to keep them in drawers. 
  5. Stack (don’t hang!!) sweaters systematically: Pro-Tip: sweaters should not be hung because hangers can pull the threads at the shoulders which would cause major damage over time! EEK! So, to avoid the unraveling of your gorgeous sweaters, fold them and keep them on your custom shelving! How to sort them? First by weight, then by color, and stack them no more than five high. When you create short stacks of sweaters, they will naturally break up your pieces by season which will save precious time when you need to find that exact sweater to wear on a given day. Another good reason for shorter sweater stacks: these piles will fit perfectly between your
    brand new shelves! 
  6. Organizing belts: Sort them first by purpose, and then separate these belts by color.  Next, hang them (or roll them into a basket) and place them in a low-traffic location to keep them out of the way but still accessible!
  7. Divide your scarves by knitted or cloth: Did your custom closet come with diamond-shaped nooks? These are the perfect spot to roll thick scarves and easily see what you’re working with! If you didn’t get these custom nooks, you can also fold your thicker scarves & store them on a shelf or in a basket & then hang your lightweight scarves by length so they’re easier to locate as needed!
  8. Don’t allow unworthy items: Do you have random promotional T-shirts, clothes you haven’t worn in years, wire dry-cleaner hangers, or orphan socks still in your possession? These items will just clutter your beautiful new space! Take stock of any undesirable items and consider donating old items, and store pieces you just can’t part with elsewhere!

Linen Closet Organization

After spending hours on laundry the last thing you want to do is stuff your linens haphazardly onto shelves. If you have fought your last battle trying to shut the linen closet door give these linen closet organization ideas a try.

Linen Closet Organization

Purge, Purge, Purge

When it comes to organization the first step is always to purge. The reality is, most of us keep many more items than we actually use. If you need hard numbers to decide what to keep here’s what Real Simple suggests.

Try to limit yourself to three sets of sheets per bed and as few as three sets of bath sheets or towels, hand towels, and washcloths per person (more if you change towels daily, fewer if the men in your household have never picked up a washcloth). This gives you one set in use, one in the hamper, and one in the closet ready for action. You’ll need only one or two sets for guests (one on the bed and one in the hamper or closet).

To make the purge step easier automatically get rid of any sheets or towels that have ripped hems or ragged edges. You know you’ve had those same linens in your closet for more than a decade. It’s probably time to bid more than a few of them adieu.

Label It Up

You may be perfection at keeping things organized, but if there is even one other person in your home (particularly spouses or children) you may want a more detailed organization plan. Better Homes & Gardens encourages using labels.

Keep linens organized based on where you plan to use them. Sort sheets for each bedroom in the house into their own storage bins so finding the right set is always easy.

Once you have a bin for each room your teenager has no excuse for not knowing where his clean sheets go. Now that you have him doing his own laundry! Wait, you aren’t getting him involved in the laundry?? Check out these summer chore ideas to get your little people involved in keeping things neat and tidy.

How to Fold Those Sheets???

Ok, ok, we know what you’re thinking. Organized linen closets are all well and good, but how do you actually fold those darn sheets?!! Imperfect Homemaking has a full tutorial. We particularly loved their tips for putting sheet sets inside the pillowcase. That’s pure genius!

Method 1: Place the sheets inside the pillowcase and fold the excess pillow case under.
Method 2:  Fold the pillowcase in thirds lengthwise and then wrap across the stacked sheets.
Method 3: Simply fold the pillowcase and place on top of the sheets
Method 4: Fold the pillowcase lengthwise to make it the same width as your folded sheets.  Wrap around both sheets creating a nice smooth front to display in your linen closet.

Customer Showcase: Functional Beauty

A master bedroom remodel wouldn’t be complete without a new closet. The theme of this closet was functional beauty. Beautiful finishes with lots of functional organization is the closet design everyone dreams of!

Functional Beauty

Our customer in Dallas, TX added a closet on to their master bedroom remodel and wanted a functional yet beautiful space when expanding. Their builder recommended Closet Envy to create a designer closet.

The customer wanted an island in a closet with relatively small floor space. By keeping the island thin we were able to make her closet dreams come true.

We were able to utilize the tall ceilings to add extra storage. Pull down hang bars are perfect for the out of season clothes. 

We also added upper cabinet storage all the way to the ceiling. This allowed us to utilize all the space while hiding the out of season bins cabinet behind doors. 

We  incorporated a jewelry drawer organizer under one window in the closet. Can we just take a moment to admire the fact that there are windows in this closet?!! Bright light is bliss!

A small track system with hooks create the perfect spot to hang necklaces on the wall.

Another addition to the closet is a set of dresser drawers. Nothing says functional storage like a set of drawers!

We were able to select beautiful finishes to compliment the customer’s newly remodeled master bath! Glass fronted cabinets add a bit of extra elegance to the design.

A pull out belt rack is another wonderful closet feature. There when you need it, and hidden away when you don’t.

How to Store Winter Gear

Whether your winter was long or short it’s finally time to put the warm stuff away in preparation for summer weather. Here are some of our tips for how to store winter gear.

Whether your winter was long or short it's finally time to put the warm stuff away in preparation for summer weather. Here are some of our tips for how to store winter gear.

How to Store Winter Gear

Winter Coats

Winter coats, by nature, are large bulky items. So we wondered if there was a space saving way to store them.  Good Housekeeping had some great ideas!

Do up buttons, zip up zippers, and empty out pockets; then hang structured or down coats on thick hangers inside a breathable garment bag. Polyfill-stuffed coats can go in vacuum-seal bags, compressed halfway for space.

Whether your winter was long or short it's finally time to put the warm stuff away in preparation for summer weather. Here are some of our tips for how to store winter gear.

We’re ready to put those coats far, far away! How about you? Bring on the warm weather, pools, picnics, and backyard barbecues.

Boots, Hats, Gloves

The accessories of winter can often be difficult to store. How many times have you had to buy new gloves because one is missing? Or no matter where you look, you can’t find your favorite stocking cap? The Spruce has these interesting suggestions for storing boots, hats, and gloves!

In my home, we keep hats, gloves, and scarfs stashed in our entryway during the winter. When spring rolls around those items are used to stuff my tall winter boots so, they keep their shape. Here’s how:

  1.  I make sure my boots are clean and dry inside and out.  This chore involves brushing all the debris from the bottom and wiping down the exterior and interior of each boot.
  2.  I place a sachet of baking soda inside each boot and let it sit for 24 hours.
  3.  The next day I take the sachet out and replace it with a fresh one.
  4.  Afterward I line each boot with a thin, clean rag made from an old sheet or shirt.
  5.  Next I stuff clean winter hats, scarfs and gloves into airtight food storage bags.
  6.  Then I use the filled storage bags to stuff my boots.

When the task is complete, my boots are placed on a shelf in my closet. The shelf is one foot above the floor. I keep my warm weather shoes under the shelf.

Whether your winter was long or short it's finally time to put the warm stuff away in preparation for summer weather. Here are some of our tips for how to store winter gear.

What a great idea for storage! Compact, and all in one place. Say goodbye to missing winter accessories.

Sweaters

If you want to make space for your favorite sun dresses, tank tops, and summer gear it may be time to store away those bulky sweaters. Good Housekeeping advises you store sweaters in plastic bins until cool weather returns.

Fold into thirds, then in half, and stack in a plastic bin with heaviest knits on the bottom. Place white tissue paper between layers if color transfer is a concern or to keep any embellishments from snagging.

Whether your winter was long or short it's finally time to put the warm stuff away in preparation for summer weather. Here are some of our tips for how to store winter gear.

Closet Organization by Color vs Item

Is your closet bursting at the seams and begging for some reorganization? After you’ve done the difficult step of purging unwanted clothes, you may be wondering how to organize things as you put them away. It’s time to think about closet organization by color vs item.

By Color

Have you always loved the look of a rainbow? Do you think in color? Perhaps color organization is for you. My Domaine suggests using those skills you learned in elementary art class to get started organizing.

Once you’ve got everything sorted into separate categories, organize clothes by color. Remember that grade-school acronym, Roy G. Biv? Now is the time to use it! Organize by color: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. Keep white and black on opposite ends.

Is your closet bursting at the seams and begging for some reorganization? After you've done the difficult step of purging unwanted clothes, you may be wondering how to organize things as you put them away. It's time to think about closet organization by color vs item.

One benefit of color organization is that it allows you to get a clear picture of what colors you have. Is your wardrobe heavy in blues and light on…anything else? Color coding allows you to see at a glance if you have way to many items in one color family. On the plus side, it also helps you see what items would go well together.

By Item

If you literally cringe at the thought of having pants mixed in with shirts and sweaters then perhaps organizing by item would be a better fit. CNN Money has these tips to share.

Organize by silhouette, not color. “No one wakes up saying, ‘I am having a purple day,'” said Amy Salinger, a personal stylist. “It’s more about who you will be seeing that day, how you’re feeling and the weather.”

She recommended organizing a wardrobe based on silhouette and then by style. So all the pants go together and then that section is broken down by type: skinny, wide leg, trouser, etc.

Is your closet bursting at the seams and begging for some reorganization? After you've done the difficult step of purging unwanted clothes, you may be wondering how to organize things as you put them away. It's time to think about closet organization by color vs item.

When you organize by type and then silhouette you can easily find the items that fit the occasion or the weather. That is a big plus for busy people, or for those of us that like to hit snooze 18 times and are always running late in the morning!

Why not both?

If you are drawn to the look of a color coordinated closet, but like the functionality of organization by item why not incorporate both? First sort your clothing by type. Hang all the shirts together, and the pants together. Then within the category you can organize by color. It turns out you can have your rainbow cake and eat it too!

Prepare Your Closet Canvas

Before you jump in to organizing your clothes why not take some time to prepare the canvas? A new closet remodel would highlight your colorful and categorized organization in a beautiful way. With our help, your clothes will become the showpieces they have always deserved to be. And you will feel like royalty each morning as you are getting ready for your day.

Closet Organization on a Budget

Your closet needs a huge overhaul, but your organization budget is tiny. Some people don’t have the cash flow to install a custom designed closet. Never fear, closet organization on a budget is a doable feat. With these tips you’ll go from mess to organized bliss in no time!

Purging is Free

Here’s some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that one of the biggest steps to organizing your closet is to purge. We’ve shared steps to cull your closet before. This step is the most time consuming, and likely the least fun, but it’s essential to the organization process. The good news is that this process won’t cost you a cent. It may cost you a few hours of your precious time, but the sweat equity will be worth every penny (saved).

Your closet needs a huge overhaul, but your organization budget is tiny. Some people don't have the cash flow to install a custom designed closet. Never fear, closet organization on a budget is a doable feat. With these tips you'll go from mess to organized bliss in no time!

Hanging Space

Did you know that your hangers may be causing some of your organizational issues? All You shares why.

Hangers ensure that clothes stay wrinkle-free but they’re often poorly designed and can take up too much space. There are ingenious space-savers that keep your clothes crisp without all the hang-ups.

Your closet needs a huge overhaul, but your organization budget is tiny. Some people don't have the cash flow to install a custom designed closet. Never fear, closet organization on a budget is a doable feat. With these tips you'll go from mess to organized bliss in no time!

Once you have your items purged you will know how many hangers you need. This is a great item to invest some of your hard earned cash into. Find some slim hangers that will consolidate the space you need to hang your clothes. It’s an added bonus if your hangers have a way to daisy chain them. This will allow you to utilize some of the vertical space as well.

Repurpose Items

When organizing on a budget it helps to think outside the box. There’s no need to shop closet supply specialty items. There are ways to repurpose less expensive items to create simple storage solutions. Life Storage suggests creating your own PVC pipe organization system.

I rarely gave thought to the existence of PVC piping before I began scouring the web in search of new and cheap methods of organizing. Now I know how relevant these plastic tubes really are. They can be used pretty much anywhere for storage, because they come in so many sizes. As far as the closet goes, I wish I’d thought of PVC earlier! Stacking some larger diameter pieces makes for a simple—and really attractive—shoe organizer. Plus, you can add on as your shoe collection grows. Set side by side in a drawer, they make easy dividers for your small pieces, from ties and scarves to socks and underwear.

Your closet needs a huge overhaul, but your organization budget is tiny. Some people don't have the cash flow to install a custom designed closet. Never fear, closet organization on a budget is a doable feat. With these tips you'll go from mess to organized bliss in no time!

Tension rods or bathroom towel rods are another inexpensive way to get organized. Check out these ideas from Life Storage.

Tension rods are a lifesaver when it comes to organizing any room in the house. You can organize your entire closet with them! High heeled shoes can hang from a single rod, while flats and tennis shoes can rest atop two tension rods side by side. It’s easy to organize your scarves in an unused nook. And using s-hooks and a tension rod makes it easy to keep your purses or jewelry in order. Is your closet a reach-in with space on either side of the door that’s annoyingly empty, yet unusable? A couple of tension rods can make that space useful in an instant.

Consider other household items that could be repurposed to fit your closet storage needs. Gather up things like baskets, bins, tubs, or shoe boxes to begin organizing your closet. You might just find that you already have the items you need to create a beautifully organized masterpiece.

It’s Not As Expensive As You Think

You may think that a custom closet is out of reach for your budget. It might surprise you to know the true cost of your dream closet. It never hurts to schedule a free consultation. Perhaps you’ll find that closet is in your budget after all!
