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!

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.
