How to Create Your Dream Closet this Summer

We all dream of having the perfect closet but tend to put off the closet makeover in order to tackle other household projects.  We often devalue the importance of the closet by telling ourselves, “No one will see my closet but me.”

We’re here to tell you that YOU deserve a beautiful closet because YOU spend time in the closet every single day. AND it’s a lot easier than you think to make this dream come true.

Since we created our closet in our office building, we started by laying new laminate floors. We picked a color that would complement both the color of the cedar and the cabinets that we chose. However, an aromatic cedar closet would look beautiful with an array of flooring.

After we laid the flooring, we moved on to one of the most important parts of the closet – the aromatic cedar planking! The cedar planks not only add a beautiful natural element to your closet, but they also protect your clothes from insects such as moths, cockroaches, and silverfish.

We have some great resources on our Planks page that will help YOU install Aromatic Cedar in your own closet. Finish off your cedar walls with inside corner, base, and crown moulding.

Finally, put the finishing touches on your beautiful new cedar closet by incorporating some nautical decor to bring the beach into your home. You can enjoy a beach house inspired closet even if you don’t live on the coast!

Interior design has long ignored the closet, dismissing it as square footage and shelving, nothing more.

We challenged the status quo, asking, “Why?”! Why can’t…Continue Reading
