Closets – The sBo Effect

Written by Laurie Palau. Posted in Closets, Gallery Old

Closet Before sBo: This traditional closet had a bunch of wasted space leaving lots of room for clutter to accumulate.

Closet After sBo: Customizing the closet, flipping the door to swing outward and adding clear front plexi-glass doors make this a fully functional closet  maximizing the entire space, walls included!

Closet Before sBo: This standard builder’s grade closet had a ton of wasted space and hard to reach areas, especially for a little boy.

Closet After sBo: Opening walls, taking off the doors and customizing the space maximizes every inch, creating a 100% functional closet.

Closet Before sBo: Despite built in shelving, this master closet is filled with wasted space and lack of systems make it impossible to keep organized.

Master Closet After Custom Design by sBo: These custom cubbies help to keep clothes organized and easy to see.  This custom shoe rack is a dream for shoe lovers! Prior to these built-ins, this wall was completely empty-a complete waste of space.





Closet After sBo: This underutilized nook has become the home for memorabilia storage color coded for each child.

Closet After sBo: This master closet leaves no room for jewelry or pocketbook storage so we created space in the rooms built in shelving.



Closet After sBo: Have deep shelves?  Not to worry.  By incorporating stackable sweater dividers allow you to maintain an organized space.

Closet After sBo: Clear shoe bins allow you to make use of previously wasted vertical space.
