Get to your Keys, Jackets, and Rain Boots Faster with these Entryway Design Ideas and Accessories

The front entryway for many families is like grand central station where keys jackets, and rain boots can quickly clutter an area that would be better suited to make a great first impression for unexpected guests. Whether you live with a large family or a busy one, or you entertain guests often, an attractive and functional entryway design can make the difference between chaos and bliss. Since the goal of designing a custom entryway or mudroom is not only to welcome friends and family, but also to move out into each day as smoothly as possible, Tailored Living recommends meeting with your local home organization specialist to design an entryway that caters to your family’s distinct needs. 
 
One of the primary concerns most families face is what to do with all the shoes, including rain boots as we head into the rainy months. While all of us have the best intentions to keep shoes neatly organized in our bedrooms, it’s almost inevitable that pairs get left behind and contribute to a growing pile of stilettos, sneakers, and sandals. While Tailored Living has helped many families customize shoe racks for the mudroom and the closet, we also commonly recommend incorporating a bench into your entryway design––one that helps guests or family members off their feet while also saving space.     
But even if shoes are under control, entryway benches can still serve an important home organization purpose. Simply by replacing open shoe space with custom drawers, you can store anything from items you always seem to forget racing out of the house, to those that just don’t seem to fit elsewhere in the home.       
 
During your consultation, be sure to ask about the differences in materials, finishes, and textures. Tailored Living has one of the largest selections of entryway design solutions in North America, and we are dedicated to helping you design and install the perfect one for you. Call your local organization specialist today for more information or also to schedule a complimentary consultation. By watching our home organization specialists utilize our proprietary 3D design software, you’ll be able to visualize your home’s unique potential.

Customize Your Closet Into a Vanity with Closet Accessories

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.

Transform your Poolside Shed into a Mini-Cabana with Cabinets, Hampers, and Storage Bins

It’s swimming season! Perhaps the only thing more luxurious than lounging by a shimmering turquoise pool is knowing that a fruity beverage, a fluffy towel or spare sunglasses are just a few steps away in your poolside cabana. Although owning your own cabana might seem like an extravagant frill, transforming your outdoor storage shed into a well-designed mini-cabana can boost your poolside enjoyment exponentially.
 
Converting sheds into livable space is taking off!  You can turn your poolside storage shed into a mini-cabana with outdoor storage, hampers, storage bins and custom cabinets. Pool gear can be cumbersome, and it has a tendency to accumulate so you’ll want to build in ample storage space. To keep your mini-cabana free of clutter, consider layer in shelving, custom cabinets and functional furnishings, such as storage benches. The organization specialists at Tailored Living can easily transform your storage shed into a desirable space with lots of various options.
 
Guests changing into their swimsuits won’t want to feel as though they’re on display. Orient the pool house so that it’s as private as possible and include features such as screens, privacy walls, frosted windows, or shades and blinds. And don’t forget the electronics. A sound system, dimmer-controlled lighting and Wi-Fi go a long way toward making your poolside mini-cabana both pleasant and functional.
 
Tailored Living’s home organization specialists will go through the design process with you to discuss a vast array of cutting-edge organization tool options that will work best with your space. Each of our team members know exactly what questions to ask to get the job done easily and efficiently the first time.

Add Style to your Garage with Tailored Living's Exclusive Color Match Floor Coating Technology

PremierOne® is an innovative hybrid polymer garage floor coating developed by Sika® that will transform your old garage floor into an attractive surface that is easy to clean and maintain. Choose from several solid color PremierOne® garage flooring options or a variety of decorative chip patterns. 
 
Sika is the global leader in industrial grade structural custom floor coatings and chemicals. Boasting over 100 years of experience and five billion dollars in annual sales, Sika serves the construction and manufacturing industries in over 70 countries. A few years ago, Sika laboratories began producing a special blend of industrial grade coating chemicals for the exclusive use of Tailored Living garage flooring installers; a proprietary blend called PremierOne®. 
 
Over time, the garage has become more than just a place to park your car. It can serve as a storage unit, fitness room or workshop. Concrete is perpetually dusty and dirty. It can also make the garage look dull and uninspiring. Garage floor coating creates a more refined look, is easier to maintain, and results in an overall cleaner area. It can also help extend the living space of the home.
 
Whether you choose a solid garage floor coating or decorative chip option, your floor will be the envy of your neighborhood and will carry the same warranty. However, the decorative chip floor provides added impact protection, better slip resistant properties, will help to camouflage imperfections in the floor, and is better at disguising dirt that will be tracked in to the garage by shoes and tires.
 
To ensure a permanent bond, our floor preparation process includes diamond grinding the concrete and filling cracks and chips before applying the coating. A garage floor can take as little as a single day to prep and coat and the cure time is typically 24- 36 hours depending on ambient humidity and temperature.  
 
Contact your local Tailored Living organization specialist today to find out how you can transform your garage into a work of art!
