Turn Your Custom Closet into a Vanity with these Accessories

Ever dream of having a custom vanity area where you could sit and perform your beauty rituals? Many times the closet is an overlooked space that would be perfectly suited for housing the vanity area to save space in your room. If you find that your wardrobe space has unused square footage and it goes back roughly 3 feet, then this might be an ideal space for a custom closet vanity to be installed.  
Most closets have either a large sliding door or two doors to enclose the space. When creating a custom closet to incorporate a vanity it would be ideal to remove the doors from their hinges and replace the area with a long, dramatic, decorative curtain instead. A vanity is commonly an elegant area where you sit to make yourself more beautiful, so pick a curtain with various adornments and features such as rhinestones, pearls, or brightly colored patterns. Make sure the curtain is long enough to drape across the floor. This is also more convenient compared to leaving the doors in the closet.
Customize your closet into a vanity with closet accessories like custom drawers for jewelry. An easy solution to commonly tangled or lost accessories is the jewelry drawer. A shallow pullout with custom jewelry dividers, you can use as few or as many as you need. It’s an ideal way to protect your valuable pieces, as well as to keep track of them.
An alternate solution to the pullout mirror or mounted mirror is one that hosts your reflection on one side and your toiletries on the other. Using a mirror as a multi-purpose closet accessory frees up space in both your bathroom and your closet’s essential storage space. Store your extra beauty products--including hair tools, makeup, and nail supplies--in separate baskets above the closet vanity.
Consulting with a custom closet organization professional will ensure your home improvement efforts save time, money, and space. At Tailored Living we pride ourselves in taking the time to ask the right questions about your needs and lifestyle so that the investment in your space is one hundred percent personalized.

Closet Designs to Keep You Organized Throughout Every Season

Winter is behind us, spring has sprung, and summer is the right time to add a new twist to closet organization to keep you organized throughout every season!  The change in seasons often requires a new wardrobe and a new closet design.  
When it comes to closet organization, the professionals at Tailored Living recommend first, separating out your heavier winter clothes, outerwear, and boots.  These items can be stored away easily in pull-out bins or on overhead shelving units. Sturdy pulls-out baskets are ideal for stowing bulky sweaters and other seasonal items that take up too much hanging space.  Built-in cabinetry and integrated shoe racks are the perfect solution for keeping the shoes that you will no longer need, out of sight and organized.
Next, move your lighter hanging garments to the front of your closet to ensure that they’re easy to access.  Custom closet design from Tailored Living incorporate areas for long and short hanging items so that everything in your wardrobe has a place.  Consider moving your shorts, t-shirts, and other casual items to the drawers in your main wardrobe unit or fold them neatly and place on lower shelves.                        
Lastly, you’ll want to display your brightest spring accessories!  Overhead shelves enclosed by glass front doors are ideal for storing purses and hats to ensure they’re close at hand for the next special occasion or warm weather outing. Integrated valet rods work great for securely hanging scarves and ties and can be key to maintaining closet organization.
By incorporating these closet design ideas into your space, you will feel more organized, spend less time searching through a cluttered closet, and get out the door faster to enjoy the weather now that summer is upon us!  Tailored Living’s closet organization solutions are the perfect way to keep you organized throughout every season.
