How to give your closet a luxe upgrade for fall

Everyone knows that envy is one of the seven deadly sins and should be avoided, so before you drool over yet another walkthrough of a Kardashian or Jenner closet, why not make your dreams come true?

Sure, you may not live in a mansion — but luxurious closets can happen in any home with the right guidance and planning, as the experts at California Closets will tell you. And for a limited time, you can now make your closet, pantry, garage, craft room or mudroom even more luxurious with the Autumn Upgrade event.

California Closets, celebrating 30 years in the Kansas City area, is one of the leading experts in organization and design when it comes to closets, garages, craft rooms, and pantries. With expertly trained consultants on hand to guide clients to their ultimate organizational nirvana, California Closets can make even the smallest home more livable by reclaiming inefficiently used space.

Ashley Travers, one of the design consultants at California Closets Kansas City, likens the process to remodeling a kitchen.

“One of our consultants will come and look at your space, whether it’s an existing closet or any room that needs an extra hand with organization. We talk to them about how they use their space—do you fold your jeans or hang them? Fold your sweaters or hang them? We try to think of all the things that you don’t normally consider. Then we measure the space and design it with the client,” says Travers.

The next step is a visit to the showroom where clients can see physical examples of the structures, from hampers to shelving. Travers says that this can be the most fun portion of the build as clients pick out finishes, handles and hardware for their space.

California Closets uses furniture grade melamine for their designs — it’s an eco-friendly and extremely durable choice. Instead of having to treat wood closets every year, the melamine requires no maintenance and uses recycled wood fiber so the structures are strong, durable, and lasting.

California Closets can also incorporate lighting into each design so that the space is illuminated and comfortable. Travers says that choosing lighting is one of the most enjoyable portions of the design process for clients as they choose between warm and cool colors and envision their space.

While the standard finish of a design and build is the classic, California Closets is currently offering their Autumn Upgrade event. From now until October 31, clients may upgrade to a rich Italian-inspired finish or unique woodgrain. Within the finishes, there are myriad combinations of colors and textures so clients may truly customize their finishes to suit their space.

Whether you’re building a custom home from the foundation up or repurposing an existing space, California Closets can make your home more livable by finding and designing the most efficient and downright luxurious use of space. And really, why lust over someone else’s perfect space when yours is within reach? California Closets is ready to help!
