Overview

There's almost nothing in the modern home that can delight us more than an intelligently organized, nicely featured closet-a place where things are organized in pleasing geometry, here we can find and retrieve that perfect tie or that just-right sweater, instantly. And there's nothing more disheartening and irritating than that murky closet from the netherworld, where boxes tumble down on our heads whenever the door opens, where the sheer clutter makes it impossible to identify what's inside, much less retrieve the item you need. Consumer desperation is why entire companies have sprung up devoted to closet organizing-it's the reason homeowners sometimes spend literally thousands of dollars to have a custom closet organizer designed and installed.

Or, they can buy this book and do it themselves for a fraction of the cost. Today, virtually all the materials and hardware used by custom closet fabricators is available to consumers on the racks of home centers and hardware stores. Build Your Own Custom Closet is the first book to show consumers all the inside tips on designing a custom closet, and how to install it using materials they can buy themselves. This is the book that will lift readers from closet purgatory into the heaven of the well-organized closet-without selling their souls.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Every American family laments its lack of closet space. First-time authors Cole, a professional closet designer, and Myers present some alternatives for squeezing out more storage. They provide smart checklists and design instructions for determining what closet space you need and clearly explain how to take out existing closet shelving and fixtures and make minor repairs. Although the pictures adequately show details and instructions, they generally appear washed out. While not the most glamorous closet-design book, this does cover all the basics quite nicely. Recommended for most collections.
