Turn your clutter and chaos into a clean closet!
Before starting this blog I thought I would see how Webster defines a closet. A closet is usually small room that is used for storing things (such as clothing, towels, or dishes).
clos·et noun \ˈklä-zət, ˈklȯ-\:
A closet can be small room, enclosed recess, or cabinet for storing clothing, food, utensils, etc. is how Dictionary.com describes it. Either way, a closet is a place of storage with the number one goal to keep organized and have everything easily accessible. Unfortunately, clutter and chaos can easily take over your home whether it be in the kitchen, master bathroom, home-office, or your garage. Who knew there were so many different types of closets!

Everyone wishes they had more storage space especially at Christmas time, and it would be nice to reduce the clutter year round!
Children today are involved in numerous sports, or dance with so many items needing to be stored. A college student never comes home empty handed, and even after 4 years they may have to return home to live, or perhaps one day we realize it is best for the parents if they now live with us. Whatever your household is like, the need for storage just became a necessity. Having the perfect storage unit for everyone’s belongings will miraculously make chaos disappear in your home. And we could all use a little magic when it comes to keeping the home organized!
Walker Woodworking can help you design a unique storage space for many areas of your home.
Broom closet: A narrow floor-to-ceiling space for the storage of lengthy items such as brooms, mops, & dustpans. You can easily add an 8 inch broom closet to the pantry, opening with side by side doors. This small space can save steps making kitchen cleanup a breeze.
Coat closet: A coat closet is a closet of a house where people store their hoods, jackets and coats. A coat closet is typically located in the entryway, so that it is close to the front door. It is becoming more and more popular to have your entryway flanked with a custom built mudroom or closet to be seen as you enter the home. Making it so accessible for the children to place their book-bags and coats, because we all know they hit the floor as the children walk through the door!
Linen closet: A tall, narrow closet, typically located in or near bathrooms and/or bedrooms. Such a closet contains shelves used to hold towels, washcloths, sheets, and toiletries. Even if your space is limited in the bathroom, you would be surprised at the storage you can get in a vertical space. Over the toilet, beside the door or shower, if you are building new or remodeling be sure to allow room for a linen closet. After all, we have all forgotten our towel once or twice only to realize it AFTER our bath! Problem solved with a linen closet in the bathroom! No more naked running in the house!
Utility closet: A closet used for permanently housing appliances, most commonly the heating/cooling unit and water heater, especially in apartments where they cannot be put in a garage, attic, or basement. Today more than ever we have appliances of all sizes and shapes. Appliances are no longer just the water heater or the washer and dryer. Ladies have hair appliances, men have tools, those of you with culinary skills have many appliances in the kitchen such as, mixers, blenders, and panini grills. Coffee makers are also an appliance many homeowners wish to have hidden until time to use. Custom built closets can be any size!
- Walk-in closet (often shortened to “walk-in”): A closet large enough to walk inside to store clothes or other objects, on two or three sides. They may have lighting, mirrors, and flooring distinct from adjacent rooms. A walk in closet is a dream for every new homeowner!
