Everyone loves to be organized and having the right storage solutions can make it easy.

Whether it is a walk-in closet or a laundry room that helps you stay organized, solving your storage solutions can help your home function more smoothly.

This walk-in closet offers lots of storage options.

In an upper Connecticut residence redesigned by Holzman Interiors, the clients requested a walk-in closet. This closet is an organizer’s dream, with shelving, drawers, containers and more. It offers plenty of places to hang or stack clothing, store shoes, and shelves for displaying ties or family photos.

A walk-in closet can help you stay neat and organized.

Having an organized closet, where everything is neatly folded and hung, makes it much easier to find what you have and easily create outfits or get ready for work.

In the same home, a laundry room with trays to hold detergent and laundry softener, as well as a clothing hamper that can be used to divide clothing by color, simplifies laundry, making it less of a chore.

Storage can also be used to showcase a collection, such as in this Chicago Lakeshore home, where the clients requested a glass storage cabinet for their wine collection. This not only stores the wine in a temperature-controlled environment, the doors allow easy access to take out a bottle to enjoy.

In a living room, a built-in bookcase can offer a great way to display collections, photos or books. In this Union Square condo remodel, the cabinets and shelving offer places to store items as well as showcase them.

The kitchen is another place where storage options can be used in a variety of ways. Whether you like your spices in a tall cabinet, or as shown here in a drawer, having hidden storage can help the kitchen stay organized, keeping ingredients on hand while not cluttering up your counter top.

Glass front cabinets can be used to store and display wine glasses or dishes as well.

Consider the items you treasure and work them into your design plan for a great way to personalize or organize your home. We can add attractive storage solutions to many different rooms.

Working with clients to determine their needs, and how storage solutions will help them, is part of our goal to not only create a beautiful design, but one that helps homeowners be more organized and simplify their life.

Design with Entertaining in Mind

This Chicago apartment was designed with entertaining in mind, creating custom furniture, and a room layout with multiple seating options.

The living room area has two distinct seating areas, with contemporary custom chairs in dark grey, glass and metal coffee tables. This offers plenty of seating and areas for serving food and drinks.

It also creates good flow for people to mingle, as well as grouping seating to provide intimacy and a place to sit and have a conversation. Having two different rugs on the wood floor also visually divides the spaces.

The different shades of grey and mixing patterns and solids with dark jewel-tones gives the room a luxurious look and feel. Creating custom furniture with rich fabrics creates a unique look and makes a strong statement.

The apartment also features an art collection on the walls, offering conversation pieces offset by the darker wall color.

A tall glass storage cabinet offers a unique way to store and showcase wine. With shelving and presentation areas, the wine can be easily accessed as well as displayed.
