A Month of Jane: Closet Storage Boxes

The Right Storage Boxes Can Improve Your Closet

To wrap up our Month of Jane—a series from my own closet—I'm sharing my favorite storage boxes and how I like to use them. 

Great storage boxes make all the difference in a closet system. They visually streamline your closet, keep clothes and accessories clean and neatly folded, and help minimize the clutter that so easily accumulates on closet shelving.

Storage boxes can also introduce a layer of texture, a pleasing color and a feeling of sophistication to bring you more enjoyment from your closet. 

My Favorite Closet Storage Boxes

I use several types of storage boxes in my closet. Here’s one of my favorites from TAG Hardware, available now at Closets of Tulsa. These upholstered storage boxes come in beach, pictured here, as well as graphite.

This next style has a pull tab and transparent panel. These boxes look beautiful and can be stacked, or used one at a time. I love that they keep everything in place and make my clothes, shoes and accessories feel like goodies in a boutique.

Storage boxes declutter your closet and serve many purposes: shoe organizer, purse display, off-season clothes storage.  Call Closets of Tulsa  today for a FREE consultation and 3-D closet design:  918.609.0214

Keeping Your Closet Tidy with Storage Boxes

Storage boxes can also help you limit the size of your wardrobe and maintain good tidying habits. On one side of my closet, I use storage boxes to organize shoes and and keep folded sweaters neatly stacked. They make it easy to see when my collection of cardigans or high heels becomes unwieldy and it's time to uncollect.

Using Storage Boxes to Display Purses

On the other side of my closet, I keep handbags in a storage box on my open shoe rack. Clutches, wallets and small purses get lost in the shuffle so easily, and I love having a special place to keep them safe. I also use these little gems more often when I can actually see them! 

Transparent front-opening storage boxes are a beautiful way to store small handbags and other items that would otherwise be difficult to keep organized.  Call Closets of Tulsa  today for a FREE consultation and 3-D closet design:  918.609.0214

Boutique Closet Shelving at The Boxyard Tulsa

Sometimes, I'm literally designing storage solutions inside a box—like Closets of Tulsa's boutique custom closet shelving installation for Beau&Arrow at The Boxyard. Creating a dreamy custom closet in side-by-side shipping containers was an unconventional challenge, to say the least! I had a blast designing the space with our client, owner Megan Saltink, and I'm thrilled with the outcome.

Designing a Custom Closet Around a Home Elevator

Other times, closet design takes us—pardon the pun—outside the box. This happened recently in a beautiful Maple Ridge home. Built in the early 20th century, the house had tiny closets typical of the time period. It also had all the charming historic details—including an original elevator! My clients wanted to keep the out-of-service feature intact while using the space around it to create more storage. So they remodeled, built a closet outside the elevator door, and called me to design custom closet shelving for them.

We do everything possible to design excellent storage while preserving architectural features that make our clients' homes unique.

In this case, we worked with original plaster walls, original base moldings, and of course, the elevator door. To install the closet shelving with minimal impact, we ran two-by-fours around the inside of the space.

These Tulsa homeowners wanted to preserve an unused original elevator while adding an adjacent closet. Closets of Tulsa designed custom closet shelving to suit this unconventional setting without sacrificing its historic value.
