Did you know that Closet Factory does a lot more than closets? Don’t let the name fool you, we are experts in many different types of storage, from your closet to your office to that oddly shaped nook that somehow manages to gather junk. Unfortunately,Closet-Office-laundry room-pantry-everything else-Factory just wasn’t an efficient name for the company.
The beauty of custom storage is all in the name- it’s custom. This means that it not only fits perfectly in the space, it covers ALL of your needs. Part of our design process is actually taking inventoryof items that will be stored in the area so that the unit we create will have a place for everything and then some.
A great example of a custom storage solution is this office designed by Jacqueline Marquez. Built in a new development, this house had a large alcove at the top of the stairs leading from the first floor to the second. The owner had used it as his office, but his desk was a simple card table and was lacking in the efficiency and storage departments. The area was large enough to allow for a built-in office so our designer Jacqueline came in to create a more functional and organized work space. And what a result! This empty room was transformed into a gorgeous, functional office.
The homeowners wanted a space that would allow for two people to work, so Jacqueline designed a desk that covered two walls. The desk top stretched along both walls as did both upper and lower cabinets, creating sufficient room for two people as well as a ton of storage for office supplies and other business essentials. For the second work space, the homeowner chose a decorative bench that could be tucked under the desk as opposed to another bulky office chair, leaving the area open and uncluttered.
To accommodate the technological needs of the homeowner, Jacqueline designed pull-out trays for the printer, the tower and the keyboard, allowing easy access to all but also allowing the homeowner to tuck them away when not in use.
For finishing touches, Jacqueline added cubbies for organizing mail and stationery:
Because the homeowners wanted a space that looked nice without being too extravagant, they chose to add decorative fluting, raised panel doors and crown moulding to give the office more of a luxurious, finished look.
In the end, the homeowners got what they wanted- a beautiful, functional space that they hope one day will help the resale value of their house, but in the meantime will serve them well in their business needs!
