custom closets JacksonvilleChildren have a lot of stuff; knowing this comes with the territory of being a parent. Tons of small clothes, shoes and toys will abound and quickly take over your home if you don't have a proper space to store and organize your children's personal belongings. One solution is a bedroom closet that is large enough to fit all or the majority of your child's stuff.

Closets, especially custom closets Jacksonville, are one of the best ways to organize children's objects.

Making the Most of a Small Master Closet

Posted by All About Blinds   |   December 12, 2013

small master closetMany of us dream of having a huge, walk-in master closet, maybe even with his and hers sides, but often times our current home, especially if it was built prior to the 1990s, does not fit perfectly into that dream. In this case, the next best thing is to figure out how to make the most of your small master closet!

Good Riddance

Attempt to get rid of any unnecessary clutter. Donate old shoes, clothes, belts, ties, and other closet items that you have not worn in the last year to a charity. This way, you know what you have in your closet, you have gotten rid of the clutter, and you can begin to get organized! 

Open Up

Oftentimes changing out the door is a great way to add more room to your closet. Pocket doors or even barn-style, sliding doors can offer a way to save space, not just in your closet, but also in your room. These types of doors also allow you to access the smallest of nooks and crevices in your closet without having to go around the accordion doors, which are less attractive.

How to Tame Your Teen Daughter's Closet

Posted by All About Blinds   |   December 6, 2013

teen daughter closet organizationOne of the biggest complaints most parents of teen girls have is a messy room. Teens often have a mentality of tossing what they aren’t immediately using aside, intending on picking it up later. The problem is that  "later" can mean weeks, months or sometimes a year. In the mean time, things tend to stack in corners, on the floor and under the bed. Finding something is more like an archeological dig than many parents would like to think about.

One of the worst offenders in a teenage girl’s room is the closet. Because most closets have a door, it’s easy to stuff things in, such as clothes, shoes and older toys and forget about them—at least until they HAVE to find something in that mess. Then it’s a free-for-all, as they dig into the depths.

It might seem like an impossible task, but taming that closet is often the first step in helping a teenage girl keep her room clean. By keeping the closet organized, clothing and shoes can be easily found if kept in the right places.
