Helping You be Clutter-Free!
“Helping you take the first step to a clutter-free life.”
Each and every morning, you begin your day in your closet. But you can't find what you're looking for! You are rumbling around in your closet getting frustrated, and that is how your day continues. But imagine if you started your day in a clutter free, beautifully appointed closet. A closet that was created just for you. A closet with your sweaters neatly folded and color coordinated, and your shoes lined up just so.
“When everything is where it needs to be, then your day starts out perfectly,” says Janet Stevenson. Janet is the design manager for Closet City, a closet and organization company in Montgomery County. “It is a feeling you carry with you throughout the day.” Stevenson knows what she is talking about. She has 25 years of experience in the closet designing and manufacturing business.
One of the things Janet likes best about her job is helping customers set their priorities for a space. “From our initial consultation, we analyze the client’s needs and determine what design works best for their space,” she says. “Then we see if there are extra things we can do in that space to make it even better!”
To reduce unwanted clutter, Stevenson recommends that her clients go through their items twice. Once as they empty the original closet, and again as they start to fill it back up. As hard as it may seem, that means you will need to get rid of items that have not been worn or used in years. Janet finds that once clients see their beautiful closets installed, they only want to fill them with their most favorite wardrobe items. (And, of course, they want to keep those closets as clutter free as possible from here on out.)
One recent project that they took on was designing a space at the Bucks County Designer House & Gardens. Tours of the property are currently running through May 27th at Foxbriar Farm at Peddler’s Village in Lahaska. Stevenson’s task was to hide some conspicuously placed electrical wires and copper washer and dryer hookups. What was once an eyesore is now covered in luxurious custom cabinetry. As a result, no one is the wiser!
They offer more than just closet organizers.
“Closet City is best known for the work it does to closets. But truthfully, we are very involved in all aspects of interior design,” she says. “Even when it is not a closet, we do what we can to make a space both beautiful and functional.”
Closet City’s most popular products are custom closet systems manufactured in 3/4-inch, furniture grade, melamine laminate. Prefinished woods, wood veneer, and paintable wood grade products are also available for higher end projects. Clients can add a countertop in upscale materials like Corian, granite and marble. Or they can truly personalize spaces with organizing must haves like shoe holders, jewelry trays, clothes hampers, and ironing boards. They are constantly testing products to bring their clients the most innovative organizing accessories available in the marketplace.

“No matter what stage of life you are in, we try to create as much functional space for you as possible. This may be through better closets, built in units, window seats, and cabinetry,” she says. “But what matters most of all? When you are living in an organized space, it just makes your life better.”
