Classy Closet Rods Rule

“Opening up your closet should be like arriving at a really good party where everyone you see is someone you like.” – Amy Collins

When you open your closet, do you look at how you hang your clothes? Do you like what you see?  We’re not talking about hangers, but about what the hangers rest on – the closet rods. If your closet rods are unattractive, scuffed or damaged, now’s the time to look for inspiration and an upgrade.

Marco Closets offers an array of closet rods in different shapes and finishes. There’s the classic round rod, an oval rod, and the new Signature rod, which is a textured rectangular rod. Signature and oval rods are available in polished or brushed chrome, oil-rubbed bronze, slate gray and matte gold. Round rods are available in matte gold, oil-rubbed bronze, and brushed or polished chrome.

Make Your Closet A Special Place

Why should you care about the closet rod? If you’re like most people, at least half of the clothes in your closet are on hangers. Having an attractive closet rod sets the tone for your closet and for how you look at your wardrobe.  Beauty and functionality are all in the details – the small things are just as important as the bigger things. Classy closet rods elevate your closet design, and we think they help to elevate your outlook on life.

You know this from your own choices – the right accessory or accent can make anything – a room or your outfit – go from unremarkable to fabulous.

Our closet rods are just a few of the closet accessories we offer to make your closet someplace special. We have many options – such as closet islands, closed cabinets with glass doors, tilt-out laundry hampers, locking drawers and even a safe to store your valuables.

Closets are where you begin and end each day. Let Marco Closets make sense of your space with a closet rod worthy of your clothing, installed in a beautiful and functional closet.

Put Your Right Shoe In, Take Your Left Shoe Out…

Shoes, shoes, shoes! For some of us, shoes represent a kind of joy that’s unmatched by any other wardrobe item. And for others, the clutter of someone else’s shoe collection is a constant annoyance and cause for irritation. Thankfully, for both camps, we have a solution for that. Marco Closets has many options to showcase, store and organize your shoe collection.

For the true shoe enthusiast, the 360-Degree Closet Organizer is the perfect solution to organize your shoe collection. It has the capacity to hold more than 100 pairs of shoes. You’ll never again look for the mate to those strappy summer sandals that you love – they’ll have their own special place on their own special shelf with this option. Best of all, the person you share a closet with won’t be tripping over shoes left on the floor. Up and out of the way, there are no safety hazards with this storage solution.

Many Storage Options

For those with a less expansive shoe collection, our slanted shoe shelves could be just the answer you’re looking for. Whether you need many shelves or just a few, each pair is beautifully displayed and within easy reach.

Pull-Out Shoe Rack

Flat Shoe Storage Shelves

Pull-out racks keep shoes off the floor, and also provide a little camouflage in case someone is counting the pairs of shoes you have. (We’re not judging.) Push the rack back against the wall and no one will be the wiser on the actual shoe count.

 

Finally, these flat shelves store shoes within easy reach. Suited more for flat shoes than shoes with heels, each pair is nestled into its own spot. For the minimalist shoe collector, this could provide a simple, elegant and efficient storage solution.

Marco Closets helps you make sense of your shoe collection with many configuration options for storage. Why wait? Give us a call today for your free quote: 402.778.5777.

Don’t Give Up

Most people give up on their New Year’s resolutions before January 21.  If your resolution was to become more organized, don’t admit defeat. Marco Closets has a solution for that. Our 360-Degree Closet Organizer and closet accessories can make closet chaos vanish.

Marco Closets is the only local distributor of the 360-Degree Closet Organizer. It’s perfect for shoes – it can hold as many as 102 pairs! But if shoes aren’t your thing, there are many other configuration options. Drawers, hanging rods and a full-length mirror are a few of the available options. Designed to be installed in a corner, it takes only 40″ of space on each side of the corner. Not an inch of space is wasted. Depending on configuration, you can add as much 100 inches of additional space in your closet with the 360-Degree Closet Organizer.

Store jewelry in a partitioned drawerOther organization accessories include jewelry storage drawers. Lined with a soft, velvet-like material to avoid scratching, rings, watches and bracelets find their perfect spots. Everything is un-tangled and visible – no more looking for the perfect necklace or tie bar to go with your ensemble.

An optional lock adds a layer of security, keeping your treasures away from little hands. (Or, for securing the surprise gift you bought for your spouse for Valentine’s Day.)

If taming your laundry was one of your resolutions, our laundry bins can be a big help. Tilt-out hampers keep clothes off the floor and out of sight.  

Our pull-out hamper allows you to sort items as you undress – dark clothes on one side, light on the other. No more missing socks… putting them in the hamper immediately ensures that the pair stays together. The pull-out hamper has an additional benefit – these can be lifted out and taken to the laundry room. What could be easier?

Is It Time For A Closet Tune-Up?

storage closetThe last time we visited your storage closet, it was pretty neat. Nothing had been put on the shelves or closet rods, and everything went according to plan. It was a beautiful place to be.

Now, some things have changed. Your storage closet is still beautiful, but there are a few things that aren’t working for you. For example, you have a different job and need to wear more dresses. The hanging rods really should be moved to a different height to allow for that and to be more efficient. And, adding an ironing board would be a good idea for quick touch-ups.

Or, you’ve retired, and you don’t need to hang as many dress shirts and suits. But you do need a space for those golf shirts and shorts. And wouldn’t some drawers in the closet be a good idea? Is that even possible?

Additions and changes to custom storage closets can be made as your needs and lifestyle change. The idea of a custom closet is to help you make sense of your space, with a solution tailored just for you.

Give us a call and arrange for a free consultation. We’ll listen to your needs and then let you know what’s possible. We have ideas that can help your closet look better and work better for you.  Call today: 402.778.5777.

It’s Waaay Over Your Head – Pull-Down Closet Rod

“Stretch, stretch. Arms waaay over your head.” We used to hear that in gym class. We shouldn’t have to perform sixth-grade physical fitness drills just to get our clothes out of the closet. Our Pull-Down Closet Rod allows even the most petite among us to reach clothing on higher clothing rods.  This Pull-Down Closet Rod also works well for those with disabilities.

Mounting clothing rods in upper and lower tiers allows for maximum space efficiency. Closets with 10 feet of height or more can use the Pull-Down Closet Rod to add a third row of hanging rods in the closet.

The hinged mount allows for the rod to be pulled down to a comfortable height, and easily pushed back into place. The handle (or push rod) swings back against the wall when not in use, so it will never get lost. It also has an adjustable length to adapt to many height requirements.

The Pull-Down Closet Rod is also suitable for walk-in closets. It’s available in three adjustable sizes: 18-24 in. wide; 24-39 in. wide; 30-47 in. wide. Each rod has a 25 lb. load capacity.

 

This closet accessory is just one way that Marco Closets helps you make sense of your space. We offer many other options, too. Our Pull-Out Valet Rod, Tie Butler, Belt Rack and Pull-Out Hampers can also add organization and easy storage to your closet. Why not call us at 402.778.5777 today? We offer free design and measuring. Today is always a good day to be organized.

Ironing Boards Get A Makeover

The topic of ironing can be controversial. It’s a love-hate thing: Some people love a crisp, starched look. Others prefer to go with gentle wrinkles and a bright smile. One objection to ironing is inconvenience. Lugging around an ironing board can be a buzz-kill, no matter how much you like crisp shirts.

Marco has a solution for that – a fold-out ironing board that doesn’t need to be taken out of the closet. Why? Because it’s IN the closet. Meant for walk-in closets, our fold-out ironing board is kept out of place. There’s no big, heavy board to trip over. Installed in a closet drawer, it rotates 180 degrees. It features seven pre-set positions. It’s also compact, fitting into a space that’s 24 inches wide x 14 inches deep and 7 inches high.

When expanded, it’s 37 1/2 inches long and 13 3/4 inches wide. That’s big enough to iron any shirt or pair of slacks. It’s especially convenient for touch-ups, like an unexpected crease in a jacket or skirt.

This closet accessory has an added bonus: there are no ball bearings or slides, like you’d find on a regular ironing board. This means that your clothing won’t come into contact with grease or become pinched in the legs of the ironing board. Included is a heat-resistant cover.

Whether you love to iron or press clothing only when you feel you have to, the fold-out ironing board offers a convenient, space-saving solution. Call Marco Closets today at 402.778.5777 for a free consultation. Let us show you how you can make sense of your space with a custom closet built to match your dreams.

Marco Makeover: Closets Get the Midas Touch

Today’s fashionable, on-trend closet can now have a new set of accessories in matte gold.  Unlike the retro 1980s super-shiny brass finish, matte gold adds warmth and elegance to closet hardware. Since popular color palettes in home design today focus on warmer tones or crisp white, the matte gold look is the perfect complement to your decor. Read more
