Closet Factory Colorado CEO Mark Lestikow examines a challenging project; view the video then read on for more details on this incredible job!
Let’s face it, downsizing from a full-size house on the East coast to a condo in Denver requires more than getting used to the dry weather and a lack of ocean breezes; it requires moving all the stuff from your storage-friendly house to a considerably smaller space.
This was the problem that a couple, John and Gretchen S., faced when they moved into a high-rise condo in the trendy Cherry Creek area. The previous owners had done a lot in the decorating sense, but there was still a lack of storage and did not quite meet the needs of the this couple.
One area that concerned them was the kitchen where a giant fish tank had at one point dominated most of one wall. The previous owners had removed the tank, leaving a large empty space which the couple wanted to use for a second freezer and supply storage.
They had a large freezer installed in the area, but the unit did not occupy the entire space and so the couple called upon the expertise of Closet Factory CEO Mark to help with the remaining area.
Mark designed the skinny space next to the freezer as a broom closet, something that was completely missing from the layout of the condo. He included special hooks for brooms and mops, space for a trash can as well as shelving above to store extra supplies.
One of the most challenging elements of this space was matching it with the rest of the kitchen. Mark contacted the original cabinet-maker (in Canada!) to find out the paint and glaze colors as well as the door and drawer profiles. Once the office ordered the correct faces, the stain masters in the Closet Factory shop painted them to match the rest of the kitchen perfectly, resulting in a seamless addition to the pre-existing cabinetry.
