Custom Closets in Burke, VA Help Organize Your Suburban Home

4 minute read, by Closet America, on Sep 18, 2017

Custom closets help suburban families in Burke keep everything organized, from the master walk-in closet to smaller storage areas and everything in between.

Fairfax County is a lovely place to raise a family—and according to the most recent census, more than 50 percent of households in the Burke area agree. Whether you’re living in Burke’s oldest subdivision of Kings Park or you’re hoping to score a new build in Burke Junction, you’re in good company with plenty of other growing families in Northern Virginia. This is suburbia at its finest, and it’s a great place to call home.

No matter how much square footage you’re blessed with, families in the Washington DC metro area are always in need of creative organization ideas. Wrangling the toys, clothes, and shoes that clutter up your home can be a full-time job. Thankfully, custom closets help suburban families in Burke keep everything organized, from the master walk-in closet to smaller storage areas and other highly-trafficked spaces in the home.

Tackling the Master Closet

In my many years as a closet designer, I’ve worked with countless parents who admit they spend so much time and effort keeping their main home areas clutter-free that they completely neglect their own personal closets. No matter how organized your living room may appear, at the end of a long DC work day, a messy closet is one extra stressor you definitely don’t need. Focus on giving your own closet some custom design love, which will seriously improve your daily routine.

Start dreaming about your ideal walk-in closet because, with custom design, you actually have the ability to create this reality from scratch. If you’re looking to increase your hanging storage, imagine dual hanging rods where your existing closet may only have one. This strategy really maximizes wall space. Adding custom shelving above these hanging rods will help you store items all the way up to the ceiling without the fear of everything falling down. With luxurious custom accessories like adjustable shoe shelves, valet rods, and velvet lined jewelry drawers, you can shave minutes off your daily rush to the nearest VRE station. All in all, a custom master closet can make a huge difference in the way you organize your wardrobe.

Giving Your Reach-In Closets a Makeover

Now that we’ve taken care of the adults in the family, it’s time to tackle the monsters in your kids’ closets. All suburban families know that kids’ reach-in closets tend to be the messiest rooms in the entire home. With help from custom design, you’ll be able to aid your young ones in keeping everything organized.

When designing a kids’ closet, I like to include a bank of sturdy soft-close drawers. You’ll be surprised how many clothing items can easily be folded and hidden away inside. (For example, that’s where you’ll want to store the countless Terra Centre or Cherry Run T-shirts.) Definitely consider adding dual hanging rods and adjustable shelving in order to maximize your limited wall space. Include a few pull-out chrome baskets to organize toys, stuffed animals, or winter wear, and consider adding a pull-out laundry hamper in each closet to make your life that much easier. With the perfect framework in place, you’ll be able to keep your kids’ closets more in line with your vision for a clean and organized home.

Finishing With the Mudroom

A custom-designed closet in each of your bedrooms will definitely go a long way toward keeping your home organized. But if you want a final secret weapon against family clutter, take a stand at the entryway. Crafting a custom mudroom will help find the order in those mismatched shoes, backpacks, sports bags, and the reusable sacks you use each week at the Burke Farmers Market. (We see you busy moms out there. Trust me; we know your pain.)

Pro tip: create a special nook for each of your kids…and your spouse, if they’re part of the clutter problem. With hooks and chrome baskets built in, it’s easy to have a place for everything. Add in a small seating area for putting on shoes and include some custom thermally fused laminate shelving to hold daily necessities, family photos, or decor items. With this sturdy and durable mudroom, you’ll destroy the clutter trend from the ground up.
