The challenge in this attic closet was to make the most of an odd space with a sloped ceiling and short knee wall. The before shot below shows a disorganized space needing help. In the left shot, notice the cabinets made from vintage 70’s paneling, the hang rod far up the sloped ceiling, and shelving low behind and underneath the rod. Right photo shows the hang rod on the left wall blocking access into the space. All of this was removed during the demolition phase.

The design secret to open this space was to locate the hanging clothes up against the sloped ceiling and use the geometry of the slope to our advantage.

Project Type Attic Closets
Date August 26, 2015
We know Rich through Houzz.com and do not regret that we hired him.

After trying to fix the two walk-in closets for months, we gave up. Due to the fact that our 100-year-old house is Victorian style, there are many challenges, especially the design itself. The ceilings are low and we also have “knee bend” walls (according to Rich). How could we make it functional?

Rich came to see the closets and sent us the design with an estimate a couple of days later. Rich was very detail oriented and listened to what we wanted. As much as he wanted to give us a beautiful design, he did not forget to see if the structure of the house would allow us to do so. After we agreed on everything, we went to his showroom to select the colors of the cabinets and handles. I was a little bit overwhelmed there; all of his cabinets were neat and well-put together.

Rich spent three days at our place to do painting and installation of the closets. During the installation, he made sure that the closets would really work for our clothes. We are very happy with the outcome. Thanks to Rich, our closets are functional and every space is wisely utilized. We highly recommend!
