Organizing Essentials

The start of the New Year is the ideal time to get reorganized. When redoing your closet, what organizing element is essential? SLHL asked local closet companies to share their most vital organizing feature.


By Melissa Mauzy


one: Tie butler, St. Louis Closet Co., Jennifer Williams, president.

“Saint Louis Closet Co.'s tie butlers are the perfect addition to 'his' side of the closet!  The tie butler easily slides in and out for easy access to 44 of his favorite ties.” 


two: Garment bag valet, Beyond Storage, David Gast, president.

“The garment bag valet, or telescoping rod, has been the most requested add-on feature or accessory included in our closet systems.  It is a simple device, but the valet offers an easy way to lay out what you’re wearing later, pack a wardrobe bag or simply hang up your dry cleaning until you choose to put it away.”


three: Tilt-out hamper, California Closets, Stephanie Cline, designer.

“Tilt-out hampers are extremely practical in everyday use, making them a great accessory to include in your custom closet. The hamper is hidden behind a beautiful door that matches the aesthetics of your new custom closet.”
