The Baby's Room

A wonderful client of ours contacted us one day to say she was having her first child and needed help with a storage problem. The problem was a strange angled closet in her new baby's room. More drawer space, hanging space, and shelving were all needed, along with space for all those wonderful new toys. This closet remodel solved all these concerns and created a wonderful way to display books, toys, games, and all those beautiful new baby clothes. A stunning additional to any baby's room, this build-out fits with the deep blues and dark stained furniture of the space.

Hi! Thanks so much for your question. Are you in our area (Durham/ Chapel Hill, North Carolina) or elsewhere? I would recommend reaching out to a designer or closet design company for assistance with your closet layout. If you are in our area I would be happy to send you information regarding our services. If not, a local designer or closet company can likely help with the layout. They would be my first stop. With the closet in the picture, we started by meeting with the client to review their needs and then creating sketches they could select between for layouts that would work for them. We then made revisions to the sketches and created the final floorplan and elevations for what would be done with the space. In this case, the wall on the left was rebuilt to allow for an angled open shelf area where before there was an angled space inside the closet that was not very accessible. Once the design was complete we got in touch with a local custom closet supply company to do the closet system. For this project we worked with Mike Hoffer and his team at Carolina Closets Plus in Chapel Hill, NC (http://www.carolinaclosetsplus.com/ ) . Thanks again for your question! Please let me know if there is anything else we can help with.

any closets with bulkheads and returning walls on both sides make no sense in space strapped rooms or homes. In any homes that I purchased, I removed the returning walls on both sides and removed all bulkheads. this maximizes the available space. At times I completely enclosed the upper space with separate doors

Thanks Arnika for your comment! In this case the clients requested that we keep the doors. and walls. The left end of the closet was rebuilt, as it was originally a wasted angled wall, so that we could build in the adjustable storage shelves shown here:

Hi Mary Anne, thanks so much for your question! I apologize but I don't have the exact white for this project as the client painted the trim before we got involved on this. It is a very pure white and matched the white trim that runs throughout the home. Often we use the white of the trim and color match it throughout the home for a consistent flow. Do you have a white trim elsewhere in the home? We then chose the best match from the standard whites available from the closet company for the built-ins. For the last project that we needed a very white white for we used Decorator's white from Benjamin Moore. I also have a client who is getting ready to use Extra White from Sherwin Williams for their trim as they are also looking for a very white white. Thanks!

Thanks Mary Anne for your question. The baseboard and crown were installed when the house was first built. Do you have a locally owned hardware store near you? If so, they may be able to help you source something. Here I would try a company called Fitch in Carrboro but I am not sure what area you are based in. Another option is to look at companies like East Coast Mouldings and find out if they are carried by anyone in your area. Thanks!
