How to create an enviable Home Library

Where are you currently stashing your book collection? Are your books scattered around the house or maybe stowed away in the attic where they’re just sitting and collecting dust?

Not. Any. More.

Read on to learn 5 simple steps to getting the home library you deserve!

Step One: 

Go to www.theclosetenvy.com and book (pun intended) a free consultation so we can install beautiful built-ins in whichever room of your home you’d like to display your collection!

Step Two: 

Sorting. Now that you have your gorgeous new Closet Envy system, it’s time to go through your collection & start sorting! (Or we could do this for you… we include 4 hours of Professional Organizing with every purchase of $4,000+… just a thought!) 😉 You can sort your books by topic or color, depending on how you would like your library to function/ look aesthetically!

If you sort your books by topic:

  • Next you’ll want to sort them by weight & how often you will be pulling this book to read it!
  • Place the heavier books on the bottom shelves
  • Place the books you’ll be grabbing most often towards the ends of the rows (so you’re not grabbing books from the center too often).
  • Alternatively, you can sort them by topic & then by alphabetical order if that makes you happy! (Remember, we’re designing YOUR happy place!!)

If you sorted your books by color:

  • Create your rainbow! Done!

Step Three:

Fill in the gaps. If you have space for books that you intend to get in the future, you can fill the gaps with decorative items, get creative!

Step Four:

Look after your library, and keep it clean. Dust is the most common problem, but it can also be books not put back, leftover drinking cups, etc.

Step Five:

Enjoy! Find a cozy reading area where you can still occasionally gaze at your stunning new library, and get to reading!

Weekend Project

Do you have plans for the weekend? If not: why not consider cleaning out your closet?

Cheryl Richardson said it best:

“If you want to improve your life immediately, clean out a closet. Often it’s what we hold on to that holds us back.”

So! Where to start?? We love this handy chart by Passions for Fashion, it provides a way to go through your closet and decide what to keep and what to donate, sell, get rid of, or store. No cheating! Send us your before & after photos for a chance to get featured on our blog! Good luck!

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!

Booth Brothers His and Hers Closets

We were so excited to create custom his and hers closets for this Booth Brothers model home. These designs are all about elegance for guys and gals.

Her Sanctuary

This closet defines feminine glamour with all the beautiful finishes and shine a girl could ever want. High gloss drawers paired with decorative cabinets creates such a high end look. The upper doors almost look like ribbons. So gorgeous!

The tall dress closet includes full length mirrored doors. This creates a clean look and the mirrors make the closet look even bigger. Although this closet is already big enough for a gorgeous ottoman. So much pretty!

There’s a  lovely glass counter above the series of drawers. Not only does it add shine, it allows a view of favorite jewelry pieces.

This closet also includes 4 pullout hamper bins. That gives plenty of space for darks, lights, dry cleaning, and towels. Now your laundry is ready to go for when the laundry elves come to wash them. A girl can dream right?

Every closet needs plenty of light, and this one was no different. In addition to the decorative chandeliers we also included lights over each closet bar, ribbon lighting on the shoe racks, and up lighting above the closets. So much beautiful light!

His Space

The closet for him has a bit less space than the one for her. Does that surprise anyone? Less square footage meant that every inch of this closet needed to be efficient while still maintaining a luxurious design.

Recycled leather drawer fronts with large modern handles gave exactly the masculine luxury we were striving for. We are in love with dECOLeather drawer fronts!

This closet also includes lighting above the closet poles as well as ribbon lighting in the shoe rack. We also included two pull out pants racks. More examples of stylish efficiency!

This closet may not have a huge footprint but there’s still room for a stylish and functional stool. Everyone needs somewhere to sit while they tie their shoes. 🙂 Speaking of shoes, even guys need plenty of space to store their kicks. This closet has plenty of shelf space for many pairs of shoes.

Dapper Dudes

Our customer in Irving, TX was looking for more shoe storage. You may be imagining lots of stylish heels, but men need shoe storage too! Before we began this closet was fine, but there were lots of ways that we helped the client make it more functional!

This closet had a lot of vertical space that was going unused. We took advantage of that height by adding two levels of hanging bars.

In addition to hanging space we added many drawers and closed cabinets. This creates storage that can be closed away to maintain the clean look.

A Perfect Pantry

Our customer in Frisco, Texas did not have enough shelving or proper lighting in the pantry. They also wanted more countertop space and some wine storage. Our expert designer took a look at the space available and came up with a plan.

The original pantry was a bit small so we converted a larger closet into the pantry.  We began the pantry conversion by adding a nice countertop complete with drawers below. There was space for upper cabinets which added to the storage space. Under cabinet lighting makes it very workable space.

The drawers were the perfect place to store things like paper goods, napkins, and even water bottles. Quick and easy for anyone in the family to grab some water and stay hydrated.

Shallow shelves were a great space for canned goods and small boxes of food. The small wooden boxes and woven baskets add a touch of class to the shelves. They make a great compliment to the shimmering chandelier.

By moving the pantry into a larger closet that left the original pantry space for some wonderful wine storage. Now they have so much space for their wine collection to grow.

The wine racks have lovely ribbon lighting. The lighting not only adds a gorgeous design element, it also makes it easy to read wine labels. Pretty and practical…that’s what makes a perfect pantry.

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.

An Organized Garage

Our customer in McKinney, Texas had items all over the floor piling up. She wanted to utilize the wall space to get things organized.

Garages are a wonderful storage space...until all those items you want to store end up all over the floor. Then your garage simply becomes a tripping hazard. In this customer showcase we created the organized garage that everyone dreams of!

We began by adding custom cabinetry. The combination of open shelving, drawers, and closed cabinets allows for a variety of storage options. The tall cabinets could be used as personal lockers for each member of the family, or as storage for sports gear or seasonal decorations.

We also added a small track system above the table top. This is a great place to store smaller tools, batteries, even nails and screws. You don’t need a huge garage to add a lot of storage bang for your buck when you add cabinetry.

 On another wall of the garage we added an additional Fusion track system. An assortment of hooks will allow this family to hang golf bags, bikes, yard tools etc. Another set of cabinets is great for gas cans, weed killer, and other chemicals used in the yard. By keeping these items in cabinets they stay out of reach of any small children that may be wandering around.

A small sink is the perfect addition to any garage. Particularly if you are a fan of gardening! It’s the perfect place to wash up after a lovely day pulling weeds.

A Designer Office

A client in Colleyville, TX was looking for a more built in look for his home office. His office before looked like many home offices around the country. It was functional and…fine. And yet, it didn’t inspire him to want to spend time in there. Let alone the hours required to work from home.

In addition to a built in look the client wanted to incorporate a peninsula so that he could appreciate the view of the outside. He was also interested in moving from a carpeted room to wood floors.

One feature we added to connect all the individual elements was a full backing in a color called Angora. It coordinated very well with the built in system  in the color Cassis. Built in lighting adds a finishing touch that allows this room to easily go from day to night!
