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!

Different Closet Styles (Romantic, Modern, Vintage)

Your closet doesn’t have to be the ugly duckling in your home that you lock away where no one can see. It can, and should, be a reflection of your favorite design style the same way the rest of your house is. Whether you prefer romantic, modern, or vintage looks we can help you design a closet style that is just right for you!

Romantic

There’s just something special about a romantic design that captures the hearts of women everywhere. To create a romantic look of your own consider adding classically romantic elements such as a chandelier or a glass vase of fresh flowers. A beautiful rug in your favorite colors can also add a lovely design element. Finish it off with a nice lounge chair or chaise.

The finishes you choose can also add to the romantic look. Mirrors and gold accents can really bring to life the romantic style you are looking for. Soft rounded edges and flowing fabric also add to the feeling of romance. Romance is in the air with these inspirational designs!

Modern

There’s nothing quite like a sleek modern closet. You simply can’t go wrong with white and black. Unless you are quite particular about how you hang your clothes, cabinet doors can really help with the modern look. They keep everything looking clean and fresh, even if the insides are less so. Although, with our closet organizers you may never suffer from messy closet syndrome again!

There’s no rule book that says modern style has to be stark and white. Warm tones can work as well. This look can be achieved by using consistent lines and tone on tone colors. You can bring in a variety of textures to add some life and personality to the space.

Vintage

The vintage style is so warm and comfortable. And shouldn’t your closet be a warm, comfortable place to be? A nice vintage inspired closet mixes the old with the new. Look for key vintage pieces like a dress form, lovely old hooks, or a vintage dresser to mix and match with your newer cabinets. This will allow you to mix your favorite vintage style with more functional items.

Another way to bring in a classically vintage look is to add vintage doors or handles in your closet. Whether it’s the main closet door, or the cabinets on the inside. Vintage fixtures can really add the older look you love.
