Oakland Township Antique White Closet

When we arrived on the design the homeowner had three wire shelves and a pole on all the interior walls. This made the isle space too narrow due to the hanging on both sides of the closet. Before the closet measured 26 square feet of shelving and 28 linear feet of hanging. We measured their wardrobe and discussed what they wanted to accomplish. They wanted to increase shelving space and keep the linear feet of hanging around the same number.…

Royal Oak White Reach-In

This reach-in closet originally had a single shelf and pole that is very common in many homes. The pole was set at the long hang height with a shelf above it. This wasted a lot of space from the floor to the bottom of their clothing. The homeowner wanted to utilize the whole closet but also needed function. She also requested drawers for a clean and organized look. We proposed that she turn the poles and put them back in the return wall so…

Bloomfield Township Antique White Walk-In

Clever Closets just completed a closet installation, satisfying our customer's need for shoes towers. We tipped the shelves in one of the towers and used shoe fences to showcase the shoes. He also wanted the option to switch one of the shelving towers into hanging (at a later date) so we cut two poles to fit where the shelving is. Greg designed the closet so the hanging is across the entire back wall and towers flank the left side. This…

Birthday Wish Comes True!

What a wonderful husband to give his wife the custom closet of her dreams. The timing couldn't have been better, as Clever Closets installed her dream closet on her actual birthday. The wire rack that was supplied by the builder helped speed the process along as it crashed to the floor one night. Wire shelving is rated at only 10 pounds per liner foot, and we see this unfortunate situation all the time. On the birthday girls side of the…

Candlelight , What A Sight!

The Pictures don't do it justice with this candlelight custom closet. It really gets your attention with our premier five piece recessed panel door and drawer fronts from Italy. These doors come standard with soft close door hinges, and the drawers were upgraded to a wood veneer drawer box with full extension tracks. The customer choose to use satin nickel hardware for the poles, crescent handles, basket, shoe fences, and pants rack. Clever…

A Space & Place For Everything

This is another case in which the wire shelving came tumbling down over night. Wire shelving is only rated at ten pounds per linear foot and it is very easy to exceed the limit. The customer wanted a space for everything with some added shelving. Clever Closets incorporated their dresser, file cabinet, and ironing board into the design. We also put a raised panel drawer with a jewelry tray insert. Greg Parsons (Owner & Designer) was able…

A Little Coco Goes A Long Way

When Greg arrived on the design he had to make this small space feel larger and more functional. The closet had some angled walls and a small cove in the back of the closet. He proposed that they double hang the back wall and put shelving behind the hanging clothes. We also could fit two rich coco towers in the closet, one with two satin nickle pants…

Depth in White

While we usually use 14 inches for one of our standard closet depths, we can always alter it to fit a customers closet. Our other standard depths are 20 and 24 inches deep but some of the space in the customers closet was less than 14 inches deep. We ended up using three different depths with this closet so the shelving tower wasn't sticking out in front of the doorway. We needed to use a standard depth with our accessories (Pants Racks,…

Bronze, The New Gold!

Times have really changed since we started in the closet business over 16 years ago. With only one laminate finish to offer, Clever Closets was swamped with basic white and chrome. Now we have eight laminate finishes, six hardware finishes, and four door and drawer styles. Although white is still the most popular and least expensive, the customer wanted to use white with our oil rubbed bronze to keep the closet looking nice and ageless. We…

Knights in White Satin Nickel

This master closet was apart of a new addition the customer added on this past year. Clever Closets wanted to help them maximize the shelving and hanging in the closet so the White & Satin Nickel Reach-In designer suggested to double hang in front of the closet window. This added over 30inches of hanging in front of the window plus a few 30inch wide shelves. The customer also wanted to go from wall to wall with custom sized…
