Whether living in the tight quarters of a small apartment or a proud humble home in the crowded suburbs everyone is searching for a miracle to solve the closet dilemmas of getting everything you need neatly organized within sight and reach.

No matter how much closet space the abode may have, getting a closet organized just right is always a challenge.

There are plenty of services available offering custom closet designs with magnificent cabinetry and beautiful plush chaise lounges. These are the closets of the movies. Remember Carrie Bradshaw’s dream walk-in closet in Sex in the City movie’s dream apartment. We were more excited at the end of the movie cheering the fact that she won back the closet more than the man (Mr. Big).

You might not be able to have a closet like Carrie’s but you can achieve your own custom designed closet to fit your needs and budget.
