Interested in turning your closet space into a custom couture creation? Below is a description from the Clos-ette website on their designing process:
During our initial consultation, we conduct an interview to determine what services you need, while gathering additional information about your lifestyle, such as shopping and dressing habits. We analyze the space and determine a scope of work to begin an estimate.
2. The Closet Edit
Here we examine your closet, inventory your wardrobe and accessories, and then begin working through what stays and goes to help you revamp your style. Taking away the clutter and leaving only relevant pieces is not only therapeutic, but is a necessity for any closet and wardrobe makeover. Merchandising the clothes, similar to a store or showroom, is the the best way to achieve a complete wardrobe clarification. Categorizing clothes by color, or into separates, evening, day, accessories and so on is also a great way for you to really start to “see” the contents of your wardrobe. To do it yourself, purchase “Shop Your Closet: The Ultimate Guide to Organizing Your Closet with Style” by Clos-ette founder and president Melanie Charlton Fascitelli.
3. The Design Process
During the final design stage, decisions are made about the space’s layout and aesthetic. This is where the space allocation begins. Our team of architects and designers devise a plan based on your personal inventory, taste, and lifestyle. The scope of work can be a complete build out or a simple organization installation.
4. Clos-ette’s Results
