California Closets' certified designers specialize in making space for all your worldly possessions with home, office, and garage storage organizers. After a free consultation with one of the expert order keepers, you'll have a good idea of where to stash your collection of lawnmower blades, as well what it will cost to do it elegantly. Though most of California Closets' closet systems go for more than $250, you can put this Groupon toward custom cabinetry in your garage, extra shoe space in your mudroom, and other areas, that, with California Closets' lifetime warranty, will withstand any amount of vehicular and familial wear and tear. Accessories such as drawer and shelf dividers help claustrophobic rooms breathe easier by separating purple rain boots from boots filled with Prince’s "Purple Rain."
At Designing Dish, brushes flit quietly across the surfaces of ready-made ceramic bowls, piggy banks, and mugs. Art-deco blocks of color, portraits of loved ones, and the fingerprints of youngsters leap from the newly colorful pieces, dappled with color from the studio’s range of paints and glazes. A kiln uses powerful heat to make the works of art more colorful and solid so that they can be passed down through generations like a razor for shaving off all the hair from a family curse. In addition to ceramics, the instructors offer lessons in glass fusing, metal stamping, and copper enameling.
Within Watermarks Kitchen & Bath Boutique’s cavernous showroom sits a host of diverse design vignettes and kiosks. These stations present a carefully curated collection of kitchen and bath appliances from trusted brands—such as Kohler, Moen, and Produits Neptune—all laid out in realistic settings. Homeowners confer with Watermarks’ non-commission-based consultants, who then classify their tastes and preferences into one of five key styling themes formulated by the store’s crew of architects, designers, and builders. The themes range from the Pure, Clean, Contemporary collection’s minimalist designs to the Glamorous, Hollywood, Art Deco collection’s ornate hardware and Academy Award–shaped showerheads.
Messy Maid’s team of cleaning professionals not only gives customers the gift of sparkling houses, but also gives them the gift of having time to enjoy them. After passing criminal-history and background checks, cleaners must pass two-week training periods before they are cleared to swab down homes. They use a checklist for each job, which ensures that they complete the job down to minute details. Beyond cleaning homes for a variety of purposes (pre- and postparty, spring cleaning, and preholiday cleaning), they provide services such as organizing, running personal errands such as getting light groceries, and washing, drying, and folding laundry.
