For five years, Karen Tran has been helping people in the Edmonton area enjoy cleaner, less cluttered spaces by using ShelfGenie® products to transform rooms in their home. With innovative products and organizational systems, her clients enjoy functional pantries, de-cluttered kitchens, and streamlined bathrooms. Now she’s turning her attention to one of the most dreaded spaces for clutter in the home – the closet.
Closets have that out-of-sight, out-of-mind factor that encourages people to sweep the clutter of the day behind closed doors. The problem is, at some point those doors open and things come tumbling out! This quintessential place for clothes, shoes, coats, and long-term storage has a bigger impact on your health and life than you think. Clutter and disorganization are stressful. Even when the mess is swept behind the doors of the closet, it weighs heavy on the mind because you know you need to address it at some point or put up with digging through the space to find what you need. Even worse, when you don’t want to root around in your closet, or you can’t find what you are looking for, time and money are wasted in replacing items you own but can’t find.
These are just some of the issues addressed by ShelfGenie’s expert closet organization systems.
“I expanded into closets in January 2021,” explains Tran, “because it seemed to be the right fit to help customers organize not only their kitchens and bathrooms, but also their closets as well. ShelfGenie wants to help clients in every part of their house to make it easier for them to enjoy their spaces.”
She continues, “ShelfGenie closets are fully customizable to what the client wants with colour choices, finishes, and sliding pull-out shelves. Each design consultation will have a 3D design of the closet.”
Clients like the 3D design that shows them a replica of the how the end result will look and function, and it allows for changes pre-installation, which saves time and money. Prior to the drawings, Tran can advise on what will work best for your space, taking into account things like seasonal equipment, special storage for delicate fabrics, ways to maximize small spaces, and more.
She shares tips about how ShelfGenie products will help you reclaim your space.
“Using a shoe organizer is a great way to display your shoes but it also makes it easier to find the pair of shoes you want,” she notes. “Also, as we age, our ability to reach or bend becomes more difficult. A closet system with adjustable shelving will help with accessibility. A closet with a wire shelving system usually has a lot of unused space. Changing to a customizable closet system will not only help use the space in the closets more wisely, it will help gain more storage and add value to the home.”
During the COVID-19 pandemic, ShelfGenie Edmonton is following the recommended health guidelines and taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of the team and of the clients.
“At the design consultation, the designer will be wearing a mask and will keep a social distance with the client while measuring,” confirms Tran.As people take the time to make their living spaces more functional and enjoyable while we spend more time at home, don’t overlook the closets. Out-of-sight does not mean out-of-mind; a cluttered mess weighs heavy on the mind. With a consultation from Tran and her team at ShelfGenie Edmonton, in no time at all your closet can become of the most functional, organized, time and space saving spaces in your home.
