Marco Makeover: A Working Closet

Marco Closets customer Katie Starks, a lifestyle blogger, recently contacted us about creating her dream closet. Katie is popular on Instagram, shooting photos and recording her videos in her “Cloffice” or Closet Office.

Katie needed attractive storage space for her shoes and clothes. Adjustable hanging space and slanted shoe storage were high on the list of requirements. She also needed a space large enough to be able to record video in relative quiet. When the idea of a custom closet first came up, Katie and her husband Luther thought there was no way that the project would be affordable or practical, especially given their family’s busy lifestyle.

However, owner Mike Herman brought his design ideas. He made the process better than expected, in both features and in price. Many of the closet components were assembled in the Marco Closets shop, streamlining the installation process.

The room Katie chose for her new closet was formerly a nursery for her children. Marco Closets maximized the storage space. It wascustomized it to reflect Katie’s needs. Drawers with acrylic fronts were added so that Katie’s product collections could be displayed.

“To say this is a dream come true is the understatement of the century,” Katie said.

See what we did:

One of Katie’s favorite things is the shoe storage.”This shoe shelf is absolutely the thing that girls dream of.” Adjustable shelves and versatility of storage spaces also come to the top on Katie’s list.

Marco Closets’ sister company, Marco Shutters, also installed a custom plantation shutter, painted white to match the other woodwork in the closet. Katie needed light control to produce good video.

Custom Barn Doors

Marco Shutters is pleased to announce that we’re now offering Custom Barn Doors to enhance your home decor. The Barn Door style has opened up new options for interior spaces. They can be used to close off rooms and closets. Smaller Custom Barn Doors can be used over windows.

More practical than pocket doors or bi-fold doors, a custom Barn Door takes up less space than a pre-hung door when it comes to opening and closing. If your floor plan doesn’t allow room for a traditional door, a Custom Barn Door could be the right solution for you.

Marco can make Barn Doors with a rustic look. But, if that’s not your style, the Barn Door can be customized. Raised panels, smooth wood, distressed wood – just about any style can be made to match your decor. The stain can be matched to the wood trim already in your home. For those looking for a painted Barn Door, our custom paint matching service can provide just the look you’re after.

Custom Barn Doors can be made as single units or split units. Split Barn Doors are especially attractive for windows, as the panels can help to frame the window with wood.

Options for the hardware style and color of the rail system can also match your style; the hardware is available in three colors and three styles.

Using the premium construction techniques used for all Marco Shutters products, your Custom Barn Door can be made from nearly any hardwood species.
