Pantry Organization Solutions and Tips

As we continue discussing organization solutions for your home, let’s talk about another place begging for some order in most homes – pantry. Even walk-in pantries are prone to becoming messy and seemingly lacking of storage space. However, the problem for most, big and small, is the absence of organization. You will be amazed at how much storage capacity could be gained by instilling some order to this all-important space.

Not to sound like a broken record… but start with a clean out. Just like other areas we have already covered, pantries accumulate lots of items that should be discarded but remain and take space. Go through everything you have in your pantry and throw away expired foods and broken items. Consider donating non-perishables that you do not need or long unused things like kitchenware or containers. However, before getting rid of potential storage helpers create an organization plan. Maybe you could use what you already have.

Sort everything into groups of related items as you go. This will make it easier during to next stage when you create your organization plan and then start loading things back in.

Once only needed items remain and everything is sorted, take a good look and create a plan. Decide on the best way to keep and where to put your belongings.

We will not go into various possibilities for containers, holders, tiered towers, etc. and the best placement. We will rather concentrate on foundational things like cabinets, shelving and accessories options. The main thing to remember is to put the most frequently used items at an eye level and within the easiest reach.

Storage and organization solutions

As with other spaces, you can choose to go with wire or solid shelving. Benefits and drawbacks of each have been previously discussed in the article on closet organization. Pantries tend to contain a lot of smaller sized items which can make wire problematic. BUT… you are advised to keep such items in a container of some sort and not free roaming.

Now, if you have a walk-in, generous size pantry, you have 2 options: open shelves or cabinets. Open shelves provide clear view, a little easier access, and don’t require any clearance for door opening. Closet cabinets will hide less aesthetically pleasing items, protect contents from dust or “unauthorized access” (for example, spirits from children), and will result in a streamlined clean look. So, it is really up to you and both can find their place in the same pantry.

Beautiful walk-in pantry

No matter with kind of storage you decide on, choose the one that lets you adjust the height of shelves. It is very important.

Another important feature of the system you choose is pull outs. They make it for so much more convenient access. Depending on the system, you might be able to get pull out shelves or drawers (excellent for bulky appliances, for example, or larger containers) and pull out baskets (great for produce that do not require refrigeration).

If you keep items besides food in your pantry, then extras such as dividers for sheets, trays, and other large thin pieces, or wine racks, or glassware holders can be very handy.

Example of tray divider, wine rack and glass holder accessories

Pantry door does not need to be forgotten and can be outfitted with additional storage, like hanging shelves, baskets, holders, or hooks. Even cabinet doors (a bonus of the closed system) could be useful for proving more space with hanging accessories.

ORGhome storage solutions that we offer provide all of the above possibilities combined with excellent quality and professional design and installation. We have successfully converted not small reach-in and larger walk-in pantries into pride and joy of our customers. A well-organized pantry will have numerous benefits starting with less stress and all the way to enjoying homemade meals.

We will be glad to help you achieve these so don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

Organizing Your Garage

Let’s keep on the subject of organizing your home and continue with a garage organization because for most people it is the space that needs it most urgently.

We are not going to tell you that one of your biggest investments is sitting under the elements, bird droppings, and fallen leaves, or that it gets crazy hot inside in the summer or bone chilling cold in the winter. You know that yourself. But just think whether you are really tired of the hassle of looking for something or getting something out when you need it.

Remember, the goal of organizing the garage is to keep things off the floor and easily available.

Clean out

As with any organization project, the first and most important step is to clean out and throw away the clutter you don’t need, like something you have not used in a couple of years. Be very thorough with this step and you are off on your way to a truly nice garage.

Consider involving the entire family because they might have to make decisions about their items and it will go faster this way too. Separating things you are keeping into categories as you go helps tremendously.

Move elsewhere

Every garage has items that are actually better stored in other places, so consider finding them a new home.

Paint should be kept in a climate controlled environment or it will go bad.

If your garage is not temperature controlled, then it is not a good place for a fridge either. Otherwise, it will be an inefficient energy sucker.

Propane can ignite and explode and should always be stored outside.

Things that attract bugs and wild life, like paper dishes or food (pet or human) should be in the house and not in the garage.

Getting it done!

After you have only the really needed items and everything is sorted into categories waiting to be stored, you are ready for the next part – organizing. The bonus of sorting in advance is that you now know exactly what you have in each group so that you can decide on how to store those items best.

It pays to think the layout through in advance. It is even better to have a sketch that shows the type of organization solution for each group of items and its location.

In fact, this is exactly what professionals like us will do – create a layout draft to go by.

Garage organizers

Shelves/cabinets. The main storage space is usually created with either shelves or cabinets. It may be a good idea to use both because they are best for different purposes. Open shelves are great because they allow to easily see and access stored items. Cabinets are irreplaceable for keeping things away from easy reach (like, chemicals) or dust, storing something unsightly, and they give a very neat look overall.

Storage solutions we offer can be made in a number of finishes with varying configurations of shelves, hooks, and rods. There is a number of different cabinet types, like shelving units, hanging cabinets for sports gear or garden tools, recycling units with pull out bins, drawer cabinets, sink base cabinet, etc. All cabinets are raised above the floor for easy cleanup and to keep items away from moisture. Our cabinets can also be ordered with glass doors.

Track systems. These are wall mounted rails that allow for attachment of various accessories, like baskets, hooks, magnetic bars, etc. The accessories are chosen depending on the items your need to store on the track, like garden tools, soft items, power tools, hand tools, and even bicycles. We offer Silver Track system for storing a variety things.

Example of a garage organization solution with cabinets, track system, tool panel, and custom work/entertainment station

Peg boards/panelized systems. These are another variation of wall mounted solutions. In the case of a peg board, you can hang things from pegs that get inserted into the board’s holes. Peg boards give great flexibility of item placement and are inexpensive. However, they cannot be used for heavier items. Panels are used to attach accessories that store items up on a wall. This is similar to a track system but gives more flexibility for item placement. They are also capable of supporting reasonable heavy objects, like bikes. We offer an ORGwall system with a multitude of attachments for basically any purpose.

Ceiling mounted racks are usually used for keeping bulky and/or rarely used items.

Of course, many more storage solutions exist for achieving specific results. We have briefly touched on the main groups that match the needs of most home owners and can be used for a variety of items.

Finishing touches

Finally, we would like to talk about the garage floor. Typical garage floor is a concrete slab with expansion joints (or cracks) and quickly gets stained with oil, paint, dirt, and what not. The result is, quite frankly, not that good looking. When you tackle your garage organization project and clear up the floor, you might arrive at a pretty unsightly view. There is, however, a great solution. We recommend painting the floor. It will cover the ugliness, protect from future spills and also help control the moisture. The floor needs to be painted with a special paint. An epoxy based product is used most often and gives great results.

Please, feel free to call or email Colorwise and More for help with your garage organization project. We will be happy to do as much or as little as you want.

Custom Closet Frequently Asked Questions and Tips

In the previous two articles, we have shared some of the wisdom we have accumulated while designing and installing custom closet systems for our customers. Today, we decided to address some of the specific questions about custom closets that we hear most often. While giving our answers to these questions, we will give some tips and pointers.

How much does the custom closet system cost?

Well, that may be the most frequently asked question. However, it is impossible to throw a number and say that this is how much it costs. The price is determined by the type of the system (wire, laminate, hanging or standing), the number of units, the type and size of units, finishes, accessories, and decorative elements.

To give you an idea, the hanging system will be more economical than standing, wire is less expensive that laminate, and plain white/off-white laminate finish is cheaper than woodgrain or real wood.

The more material is used the more expensive the unit will be. Thus, taller units with deeper shelves cost more than shorter ones with standard shelves. If there are drawers or doors, they will add to the price. The high-end decorative touches like moldings, glass and stone countertops will bring the price even higher.

A quote can only be prepared for a design after seeing your specific space and determining your specific requirements.

Is there a difference between floor standing and wall mounted closets?

Customers who ask this questions are well aware that one system sits on the floor and the other is hung on the wall. They mean the difference in usability, price, ease of installation, and so forth.

Compare wall mounted system to a floor standing system

Generally speaking, wall mounted units are more economical and are suitable for any type of closet or storage provided the wall is capable of supporting them. This system is hung on a metal horizontal bar that is attached to the wall studs. With wall mounted units, you typically will have a gap between the top of a unit and a ceiling and a gap between the floor and the bottom of a unit. This may or may not be a desirable feature (for example, convenient to clean floor but no organization). Also, there is a limit on the weight of the content of wall-hung elements.

Floor standing systems usually cost more but create a built-in, furniture look and provide more opportunities for customization and decoration. There are more options for trims and decorative elements. The shelves can usually be adjusted after the installation. These systems sit on the floor while being secured to the wall to prevent tipping. They can hold more weight and have deeper shelves. However, their installation usually requires removal of base wall trim.

What are the best closet accessories?

Closet accessories are sometimes overlooked but are true gems of the closet design. Simply adding the right accessories can transform a disappointing closet into a true workhorse.

The following are the most useful additions to your closet. The need for some depends, of course, on your specific requirements.

Belt\tie\scarf racks eliminate messy piles or “here-and-there” situations and introduce order. They make this items highly visible and easily accessible. For very limited space you may consider pull-out belt\tie\scarf valets.

Pull-down hanging rods are exceptionally convenient for utilizing the higher levels of your closet and keeping the clothes quickly and easily available. They come with a handle that lets you raise the rod out of the way into a storage positions and to lower it within your reach. Pull-down rods do take up some space though for mounting and operation.

Example of a pull-down hanging rod closet accessory

Wire baskets are useful because they are transparent on all sides and make their content highly identifiable. Another use (and usually is the most obvious one) is as a laundry hamper.

Drawer dividers help keep drawer contents organized and quickly available.

Jewelry drawers
Some people like storing their jewelry in a closet so that they can do dressing and accessorizing in one place. Additionally, if you have quite bit of jewelry you might find that a special storage in a spacious closet is ideal. There are, of course, other reasons for keeping it in a closet. No matter the reason, jewelry drawers and dividers are a popular closet accessory and come in several different ways. Colorwise and More offers velvet lined jewelry drawer trays and slide-out trays. The drawer trays can have an optional lock feature. The 2-level slide out trays are hidden behind a drawer front that tilts down and are easily accessible.

Example of a 2-tier pull-out jewelry tray closet accessory

Is laminate better that wire?

Laminated shelves are sturdier, more convenient for smaller items, and look more substantial, furniture-like. They are easier to clean and protect your clothes from dust better. The laminated system also allows for more flexibility after installation making adding elements and accessories as well as adjusting heights and locations possible.

Example of a pull-down hanging rod closet accessory

The main advantages of the wire system are the lower initial cost and lower level of skill required for the installation, meaning they are designed to be installed by the homeowner. The wire system’s elements can be easily modified by the installer but once installed, the system provides a more limited opportunity for customization.

How to use the corners?

There are a couple of way to utilize the corner space. One is to use a corner shelving unit or run the shelves on both sides of a corner. The drawback may be some dead space in the very back of a corner depending on the width of shelves.

Another option is to install a hanging rod into the corner on one side and install another unit (preferably with no hanging space) on the other side but no closer than 24” to the corner.

One thing you definitely should not do is to run 2 hanging rods into the corner across each other.

We hope that was useful and informative for many of you who are thinking about redesigning their closets or are already implementing some changes. As always, should this project become too much or you just decide that you would rather have the professionals do it for you, please, call or email Colorwise and More.

What Makes A Great Closet And How To Get One For Your Home (Continued)

We have begun sharing our insights into designing a great, functional closet in the first post. We have defined what makes a great closet and the most challenging aspect of closet design – efficient usage of space. Now let’s discuss the other traits of a great closet.

Addressing Specific Needs

This aspect has to do with what kind of closet you create: a basic bedroom closet, a dressing bedroom closet, a laundry room, hobby closet, general storage, etc. For example, you don’t need handing rods for a pantry and you might not want an ironing board in your bedroom closet. There are many accessories that extend the standard components and their inclusion will depend on the intended closet use.

You also need to take into account specific requirements, such as whether you want a sitting space, space for your shoes, a mirror, a TV, a secure storage for jewelry, etc., and any other particular requirements of the intended use and your habits and desires.

Closet to store shoes plus usage of closet accessories

Here we also include the analysis of your belonging that will be placed in the closet. For a general storage closet, think about how many and what size/shape items you need to store. This will determine the space between the shelves, for example. If we are talking about a bedroom closet, then you need to analyze your particular wardrobe. Consider carefully what items you own and what the best way to place them is, for example, hanging versus folding. This will determine the ratio of the handing space to the shelf space and the amount of drawer or basket space.

Common mistake: underestimating how much hanging vs shelf space is really needed to accommodate your wardrobe.

Lighting

The often overlooked or discounted requirement for a great closet is good thoughtful lighting. The dimly lit closet is very far from functional. It is very frustrating to look for anything when you cannot see clearly. Even if you have a good light source in one spot, it is usually not sufficient to make the closet really functional because it might not cover the entire space or you may block it with your body.

Example of good closet lighting

Natural light from a window or skylight is great to have but is not enough (it needs to be supplemented with artificial sources) and, strictly speaking, is not necessary. So, if there is no natural light in your closet, it is not a problem at all. In fact, there are certain drawbacks to having sunlight in the closet. It causes fading and windows reduce usable space and introduce privacy issues.

For the lighting to be adequate, it needs to be bright enough, cover all areas, and be positioned between you and the closet elements. Sometimes, spot lighting is a great addition. Think about safety as well and choose lighting sources that are low heat and will not be a fire hazard.

Visibility and Accessibility

Visibility has to do with the ability to see as many items as possible, say more than the top layer or first row. Seeing all the items gives you more options and saves time looking. Accessibility is the ease of retrieving what you need. The most basic approach is to have the most used items at the eye level. You can build on this by utilizing drawers that bring items from back to front, dividers that help keep things separated, or wire baskets that make their contents visible. Another idea is to use special accessories, like tie or belt valets, pull-down clothing rods or sliding trays. All of the above make stored items not only clearly visible but easily accessible.

Example of closet designed with visibility in mind

These are the ideas we wanted to share with you. Hopefully, they can help you make changes to your existing closet or design a brand new one and truly enjoy the result. Please, share your tips and advice in the comments. And remember, we are easy to reach should you decide to entrust us with your closet design project. If you have a home in Lewes, Rehoboth Beach or other Delaware beach areas, just call or send us a message.

What Makes A Great Closet And How To Get One For Your Home

A little over a year ago, we announced a new service to our customers – custom closet design and installation. Since then, we have been busy helping people improve their lives by bringing beautiful design, order and usability to their closets. We have completed a lot of projects and gained quite a bit of additional insight. We have seen just how much happier a great closet makes its owner and we want to share our knowledge.

So, what makes a closet great? Simple – true usability. Visual appeal is important too but it is a wrapper, an icing on a cake of a functional design. OK, but what creates true usability? The cornerstones of usability are efficient use of space, accessibility, addressing specific needs, good visibility, and comfort. Let’s talk in more detail.

Great functional closet

Efficient Use of Space

The efficient use of space means many things and is the most challenging area of closet design. If you are building a new closet, you might be able to plan ahead and build according to your design. However, more often you have to work with what already exists and make the best out of it.

First thing that might be considered is the closet door. It may either greatly improve the available space or quite the opposite. The door selection affects the accessibility aspect as well. Consider the most popular option for reach-in closets – bi-fold door. Bi-fold door does not require much space in front of the closet and makes no demands on the adjacent walls. However, it uses up space in the closet doorway and makes sides of the reach-in closet harder to access.

Similarly, bypass doors put no restrictions on space surrounding the closet but they block a half of the doorway greatly hindering the accessibility.

Regular swing door that swings out of the closet allows using all of the closet space but it needs front clearance to open.

Pocket door is the most space saving solution claiming no space inside or outside of closet. However, it presents a structural challenge for hanging closet elements. Because the wall studs need to be removed to create a “pocket” inside the wall for the door, the wall becomes weak and unable to support heavy objects. This might not be an issue in some cases. For example, if “pocket portion” of the wall will not be used for attaching closet elements that require sturdy support. The challenge can also be overcome with structural modifications of the wall that make attachment possible.

A window in a closet might be a desirable feature. In such case, consider using space under and around the window. A sitting bench, a chest of drawers or even shelves/rods could be placed underneath depending on window’s height. When working with a window, consider privacy, so think about the appropriate height and/or window treatments.

Under window sitting and storage

Another goal is to use the entire height of the room. This means using the floor with bins or for standing units. This also means going higher to the ceiling with either a high top shelf or a third hanging rod. The idea is to put the most used items at eye level, less used – below eye level, and the least used – above eye level. Floor and high spaces can be efficiently used for seasonal items, odd items, or bulky items.

Some closets have peculiar wall configurations that often result in a wasted space. The goal of designing a great closet is to not let that happen. It may be possible to place various accessories (like valet hangers, tie/belt/scarves hangers, mirror, hooks, etc.) or create a sitting area. If all else fails, consider using such space for decorating the closet.

Speaking of accessories, they can be great space savers. Tie/belt/scarf trees or pull-out valets, hidden pull out mirrors, trays, etc. can maximize the use of space and store many items in a quite small area.

Sliding belt rack can be attached to odd closet wall

We will continue talking about what makes a great closet in the upcoming post. Please, come back shortly for more insights.

Beach Window Treatments

We know that today’s topic generates a lot of interest, especially from the local customers in the areas that we serve. Therefore, we have decided to talk exclusively about the window treatments for homes in the beach areas, like Rehoboth Beach, Lewes, and Bethany Beach in Delaware where we live and work.

As each homeowner strives to achieve beauty in their homes and select the most suitable window coverings, the owners of beach homes have some specific considerations. First of all, it makes sense to decorate the coastal homes in such a way as to compliment and replicate the surroundings, like ocean, sand, sunlight, grasses, lots of air, etc. Many beach area homes have beautiful views that most definitely need to be seen from inside the house and breezes are welcome. At the same time, summers can be hot, so good sun protection can be important. There are also storms and hurricanes that need to be reckoned with. This unique mix of considerations means that some window treatments will be better suited for beach homes than the others.

Plantation Shutters

Shutter is a staple of the beach window treatments. The most popular choice for homes located in the beach area is Hunter Douglas NewStyle Composite Shutters. They combine the beauty of a real wood shutter with the durability of composite materials to withstand the wind, salt, and moisture – the quality that is really appreciated by the owners of beachfront homes and allows the shutters to be used on the exterior. The shutters also provide additional protection for the inside of the home during the hurricane.

Plantation Shutters in a Beach Home

At the same time, the open louvers let the ocean breeze and light flow into the room freely and the fully open shutters do not obstruct the beautiful views. The modern materials ensure superior straightness, easy maintenance, and a smooth finish.

Plantation Shutters tick most of the boxes on the beach window treatment requirements list, so it is no wonder they are the most popular choice for beach window treatments.

NewStyle Shutters in White Lace

The popular color choices are White Lace, Crisp White or Swiss Cream.

Provenance Woven Wood Shades

The natural woven shades is a timeless classic when it comes to decorating a beach house. Hunter Douglas Provenance Wooven Wood Shades are hand-woven and made of the natural wood fibers, grass, and reed.

Provenance Sierra White Bark Pine

Depending on the look you are trying to achieve, materials of various wood tones can be a good fit. Darker tones will create a richer, more rustic look, like Rustica Weathered Timber or Veranda Wicker Rocker. Lighter woods, like Montana Pumpkin Seed, result in a more relaxed beachy feel.

Provenance Montana Pumpkin Seed

Another great option is light grassy or almost white material for an airy, easy atmosphere, reminiscent of sand or water, like Cambria Pebble White, Shoal Bay Moonlight, Hatteras Sand Dunes, or Sierra White Bark Pine.

Provenance Cambria Pebble White

Silhouette Shades

Hunter Douglas Silhouette Shades are another very popular choice here in the Delaware beach area. The reason being, they are the most versatile and elegant window coverings that provide light control and privacy while dressing up your windows. These are newer shades and have some amazing features that complement the beach environment beautifully.

Silhouette Matisse Feathered Down Shades

The S-shaped fabric vanes that float between two sheer layers allow you to completely soak in the outside scenery while softly diffusing the sunlight and achieving a brightly lit but protected interior. Silhouettes are extremely airy and stylish. The special shape and the metallic coating on the vanes create the stunning light show that is unique to this shade.

Silhouette Chateau Vin Blanc Shades

For some specific suggestions, consider Silhouette Shades in Chateau Vin Blanc, Matisse Feathered Down, or Mystere Twilight Show.

Pirouette Shades

Hunter Douglas Pirouette Shades are another stylish, contemporary choice that fits really well in a beach home.

Pirouette Shades in a Beach Home

Soft fabric vanes of Pirouette Shades are attached to a sheer backing and expand or contract controlling light and privacy. When completely open, the shades allow for views of the surroundings but still diffuse the sunlight. When closed, these window treatments sport beautiful fabrics and look like a contemporary shade. You can choose an opaque or a room darkening material.

Pirouette Stria China White

The following fabrics work great for beachy window treatments: Satin Birch, Satin Magnolia, Stria Sugar, or Linen French Vanilla.

Roman Shades

There is another option to consider for your beach house window treatments – traditional roman shades in sandy, blue or white colors that replicate the natural tones of the coastal regions.

Hunter Douglas Vignette Roman Shades have several good options, like Shantung Ming Porcelain, Seaside Waterfall, Klein Parchment, or Zipper Nautical.

Hunter Douglas Design Studio Roman Shades are the more contemporary shades with several fold and construction options. This collection also has some nice, beach appropriate selections, like Seaside Waterfall, Gridlock Burlap, or Dreamweaver Fountain to name a few.

Design Studio Seaside Waterfall

And there you have – a selection of Hunter Douglas window treatments that has been popular among our Delaware beach clients and that works great for dressing up your beach home in harmony with the coastal surroundings.

Hunter Douglas Redesigns Duette Honeycomb Shades

Hunter Douglas does not stop at the already achieved excellence. This brand is committed to constant improvement. We told you about the redesign of a classic shade in the last article. And now we would like to share the news about the advancement of the most popular window treatment – honeycomb shades.

Duette Honeycomb Shades have received new hardware, including the top rail and new LiteRise wand, improved Duolite feature, and a host of new fabrics in new colors. Here are the details.

Top rail now follows the shape of the shade itself with a curved design that streamlines the overall look.

Redesigned Top Rail Hunter Douglas Duette Honeycomb

Operation. The looped cords are completely eliminated and the new contoured wand of a LiteRise operation option is elegant and comfortable to use. The reworked UltraGlide feature got a redesigned tassel that adds to the décor and feels soft to the touch. PowerView Motorization is, of course, available.

Redesigned LiteRise Wand Hunter Douglas Duette Honeycomb

Fabrics selection is expanded with the following new choices: Northwood fabric fuses rustic with modern, Alexa fabric brings the organic feel of nature, and Duette Architella Alustra exclusive Jardin fabric adds a causal chic impression with textured yarns. The color palette has been updated but is still available in several opacity levels and 4 pleat sizes for the versatility you need.

Duolite feature – that stunning transition from one fabric or opacity to another on the same shade – has been greatly improved by concealing the transition rail inside the shade. This change has made the Duolite shade even more beautiful and practical.

It is very possible we will see more re-engineered products from Hunter Douglas quite soon because this brand is persistent in being the industry leader in design and function and in offering their customers the best possible window treatments.
