Homes across Sacramento got a lot more organized in 1999, at least when it came to their closets. The Closet Doctor opened its doors, and ever since the first client at the end of the 20th century, its designers have transformed cluttered spaces into organized havens. The designers remodel closets of all sizes, from small reach-ins to full-size dressing rooms. Each makeover starts with a consultation to suss out the homeowner's needs. The designer works with customers on potential designs using a 3D rendering program.
The computer program virtually alters the space: Cluttered racks become wood shelves with concealed European-style hinges, and piles of clothing disappear into the drawers of closet organization systems. The Closet Doctor's premier system, the Sienna Collection, fills spaces with maple, cherry, and white oak shelves handcrafted in a Green-certified facility.
With this approach, the designers can also outfit closets to double as guest rooms with the addition of Murphy beds. They also tackle what is arguably a home's largest closet: the garage. Here, they install oversize closets and storage bins that can hold everything from holiday decorations to retired robot butlers from the '80s.
