Fall Special: Take up to $250 off your first purchase

Many of us make New Year's resolutions when the calendar turns to January each year, and these can be in a variety of areas. One theme you may be thinking about for this year's resolution: Improving your closet storage and organization themes to limit your daily hassle and lower your stress.

At Precision Closets & Garage, we're thrilled to offer a huge range of closets and storage systems to our Lehi clients, from custom reach-in closets to walk-in closets, kids closets and many others. We're proud to assist with all your closet and storage resolutions this New Year, whether they involve simple organization, upgrading your closets or other areas. Here are some of the top recommendations we can make for closet-related New Year's Resolutions.

Upgrading Your Closets

For many homeowners, the new year is the perfect time for a "fresh" start -- and that may even include upgrading your closets. Our storage experts would be glad to help you determine which improvements are right for your home, family and lifestyle.

One of the most popular upgrades we offer is custom reach-in closets, where you'll love the increased space that comes with high quality shelving, drawers and other organization features. We also build walk-in closets, kids closets and other types of custom closets.

For some, the key reason their current closet setup has reached a point of disorganization is a lack of practical space. Upgrading to a new closet design with more space is a clear solution, and also offers the chance to add even more organization features such as drawers, shoe racks and other elements.

We typically recommend starting with one closet system upgrade at a time -- and we're able to craft your ideal new closet system while still preserving your existing space. Plus, we offer full installation services, meaning everything will be installed exactly to your specifications.

Purging the Closet of Unneeded Items

Another common New Year's resolution many people make with regard to their closet is to clean out the unneeded items taking up space. Whether this is clothing you no longer use, gifts you've received but never used, sports equipment or anything else, it's time to get rid of that excess clutter.

For many homeowners in our Lehi community, an important part of purging their closets involves creating a system for keeping track of valuable items. For example, you may want to have a specific spot for stowing away your coats during the summer months or designate another area for storing accessories that are only worn on occasion.

For items you decide to get rid of, you have a few options. Donation is a great way to give back to your community and help those in need. Materials can also be passed on to friends and family members you know will make good use of them, or simply recycled.

Categorize Items

Another key culprit in disorganized closets is a lack of categorization, which leads to items simply being strewn into the closet haphazardly. A smart way to make sure you always know where items are without scrambling through your closet is by designing a system of sections for clothes, as well as installing clothing rods and hanger types that maximize the amount of space you have.

In many cases, your actual closet setup itself will play a huge role in categorizing and separating clothes. For example, if you like to separate your outfits into color groups it's key to make sure there's enough space between your clothing rods for all of these colors.

For organizing the items already in your closet, we recommend using storage baskets and bins that can be tucked away when not in use, meaning they don't take up room on your closet floor or other areas. Our experts can help with selecting the perfect bins and baskets, and we'll show you how to customize them for your space and setup.

Reserve Reach Areas for Important Items

For those with larger closet setups, or who are considering upgrading to such a setup, there will be certain areas that offer the easiest reach access -- and then also those that are a bit tougher to reach from your standard positions. Generally speaking, you want to be placing your most important and frequently-used items in the easiest to reach areas.

For example, this may mean placing your everyday shirts right at eye level so you can quickly grab them when getting dressed for work, or storing your sneakers within arm's reach so it's easy to slip them on before heading out for a jog. Another tip is to try and put certain items that are used less frequently in the harder to reach areas, so they don't get buried at the bottom of your closet.

Don't Over-Purchase

Yet another common reason why closets become disorganized: Their owners buy too many items to fit into their current space. When this is the case, the best thing to do is start purging your clothes and other items to give yourself more room.

When shopping for clothing, bags or any other items you know will be stored in your closet, it's important to limit yourself to picking up necessary items. The last thing you want is to buy things you really don't need, especially when they'll just create more clutter in your closet.

Also, when shopping for new clothes or items that may be coming into your closet at some point in the future, keep in mind that this is not a storage unit and you don't need to purchase multiple bins or shelves to hold everything. Instead, choose smart space-saving techniques like utilizing hanging rods and other vertical surfaces without taking up extra space.

Closets are some of your top resources for organization and storage around the home, and you might have a few different purposes for how you utilize them in different areas. One group of people who will often use certain specific cabinets or related storage areas in a particular way: Pet owners, who often utilize these items as ways of keeping their pet's belongings and "area" properly stored and segmented.

At Precision Closets & Garage, we're happy to provide not only custom closet systems, but also numerous related cabinet hardware and accessory pieces that are perfect for helping you organize every part of your pet's life -- from the storage of their belongings to defining the area that's "theirs," so to speak. What are some of the ways closets and related storage accessories can be used in this area? Here's a primer.

Closets as a Designated Pet Storage Area

The most common use of closets among pet owners when they're looking to improve organization is as a designated space to store pet supplies, food, and other items. When you have a designated closet for this purpose, it's easy to keep like items together and make sure they're always easily accessible.

Closets are ideal for many of these items because they completely block your pets from accessing them at all times. A closed closet door is a great way to keep your pet's food and other supplies out of their reach, preventing them from scattering items all over the house or helping themselves to something they shouldn't have.

As you're organizing your closets with your pets in mind, think about including some of the following items:

Cabinets for Quicker Access

In many other cases, you may consider the use of cabinets as your primary pet storage solution. Cabinets are often a better option than closets when you need to have quick and easy access to pet supplies, as you can typically open them without having to go through any extra steps (like opening a door).

As you're looking for cabinets to use in this area, think about installing some that open from the top or that have sliding doors, as these will be the easiest to access for grabbing a toy or a bag of food. You may also want to consider cabinets that are located near your pet's area, so you can keep an eye on them while they're playing.

Importance of Shelving for Pet Cabinets

If you're going the cabinet route for pet item storage, shelving is an important consideration. Shelving will give you a place to store items like food and water dishes, leashes, and other supplies so they're always within reach. It also allows you to maximize the space in your cabinet by using all of the vertical storage space available.

Precision Closets & Garage offers a wide variety of shelving options that are perfect for adding in a custom cabinet. These include wire shelves, adjustable wood shelves, and tray dividers, among other options.

Designing Your Pet Area for Convenience

Often when you're designing your pet area in a closet or a cabinet you want to keep it simple and easy to use. Store items that are used most often near the front of the area and items that your pet doesn't need as often toward the back.

When you're putting together your closet storage space for this area, make sure to leave room for a bed or some other comfortable place for your pet to sleep. If your pet is like most dogs and needs a certain level of comfort when they sleep (such as a raised bed), you'll want to include this in your design.

Other Storage or Convenience Accessories

Here are some of the other items or accessories you might consider when looking to streamline your pet area organization and storage:

The garage is one of the most useful and common storage locations in any home that has one, but how you arrange and organize the garage space will play a huge role in how much storage you have available. One element that's particularly important here is your choice of garage cabinets or related storage systems, which will set your storage baseline moving forward.

At Precision Closets & Garage, we're thrilled to offer a wide range of garage storage cabinets, shelves and other storage features to help you maximize your uses of this important area. When you're looking to upgrade your garage storage and choose the ideal cabinets or other storage items, what are the most important variables to consider? Here are several to keep in mind.

Clean and Organize First

Before you even start determining how many cabinets or how much space you'll need, you should take some time to really clean out and organize your garage. Throw away junk, recycle what you can, and generally try to make space for the new cabinets you're adding by getting rid of unnecessary clutter that's filling up floor or wall space now.

This will help immensely when you start choosing which storage components to add; if the existing options are cramped it'll be difficult to work out how many cabinets you'll need and which types of storage will best suit your needs. By cleaning things up first, you'll get a better picture of the areas that are primed for additional storage space.

Dimensions Matter

Take some time to measure the dimensions of your garage before thinking about what storage cabinets or other products could work best. There are several things to consider here - how long is the garage itself, what width is it at its widest points, and do you have any overhead space for storage solutions? Any of these details can be used to determine which product types will best suit your needs.

This part of the process may require some help from a Precision Closets specialist, but most of our customers find that we're happy to walk them through the details and can help you make smart choices about which storage products will suit your garage best.

Determine Your Uses

As you might imagine, there are a variety of uses for a home's garage, and therefore for its storage capacity. Some homeowners are mostly concerned with storing cars, while others are driven to maximize storage space in order to keep other household items safe. The more you know about your own needs when it comes to garage storage, the easier it will be to find products that fit those needs well.

Determining How to Maximize Space

Once you've laid out your baseline for available space, necessary uses of cabinets and related factors, it's time to get into the nitty-gritty of determining how to maximize your space. Consider various cabinet options for storage, including shelving and other items that can help you store away frequently used items like sporting equipment and tools.

In many garages, overhead storage shelves or racks play a major part in maximizing space and making the best use of all available locations. This is often true if your garage is tall enough to accommodate such items; you'll find that adding a couple of these above your cars can open up a world of storage potential.

With the right cabinet configuration, many homeowners are also able to stack two or more units on top of one another for optimal space utilization. This is particularly helpful in garages where horizontal space is at a premium or when you're looking to fit multiple cars into the same area.

Space Between

As you're planning out your cabinet order, be sure to account for at least one or two feet in between each unit to allow for easy access. You may need to stack or configure cabinets in an even more compact arrangement, but don't forget to account for the necessary space between items in your calculations - you might need more room than you imagine!

New or Used?

While there are some situations where your budget and other factors may dictate that you purchase used cabinets, this isn't generally recommended. Some products do just fine when being re-used, but cabinets will often have their best lifespan when they are brand new. Treating your cabinet purchase as a long-term investment rather than simply purchasing whatever fits in your budget is also often advisable, since you don't want to invest in cabinets only to have to replace them within a few years due to damages or poor use.

Customization Options

You have a number of customization options for your garage cabinets and other storage needs, and which you choose to capitalize on will depend on your needs. Some options include:

There are certain home improvement projects that boost both your aesthetics and your practical comfort all in one, and a great example is the installation of a custom walk-in closet. Not only does a walk-in closet add to your home's beauty (and also its property value), it also makes your daily life more convenient in several ways, killing two metaphorical birds with one stone.

At Precision Closets & Garage, we're here to offer a wide range of custom closet options, including many walk-in closet products that can be personalized to your precise needs. What are some of the various areas where a walk-in closet provides value to homeowners? Here's a primer.

Home Value

Even if you aren't planning to sell your home anytime in the near future, you're likely always cognizant of its value and how various projects or improvements impact it. And when it comes to return on investment and increase in home value, walk-in closets are a fantastic option.

Potential buyers on the market view homes with custom walk-in closets as having the 5-star finish that can't be replicated. A single room with minimal square footage may seem unremarkable even if it has countless other advantages, but a walk-in closet serves to make your home more visually appealing and thus prompts increased interest and offers. It also makes the home "feel" cleaner and more organized, which has a similar psychological effect on potential buyers.


You might not think of your closets and cabinets as areas that need improving, but the truth is that they aren't always as convenient as you'd like them to be. Whether you have too little storage space, can't access certain items in hard-to-reach spots, or simply find yourself frustrated with the whole process, a walk-in closet could be just what you need.

If you're looking for a little more organization in your life, a customized walk-in closet may be ideal. Customize your space as desired: Do you want everything to have its own home? Hanging rods capable of holding 100+ pounds, adjustable shelves and shoe racks, a bench or two, and various accessories? It's all possible with walk-in closets.

As the most customizable option out there (customized to your precise needs), you can rest assured knowing that your new closet will serve you as well as it can. And if you're ever unhappy with the results, it's simple and inexpensive to have your closet redesigned.

Storage Space

Another major benefit of a walk-in closet for many homes is the additional storage space it offers. Even relatively large homes often don't have enough storage space, and their size can become suffocating when it's not organized properly.

Walk-in closets allow you to take control of your home's storage woes. Studies show that walk-in closet design has a positive effect on how people feel in their dwelling spaces, and a walk-in closet is the perfect way to bring more storage to your home.

And like any other addition, a walk-in closet also offers practical benefits to every member of the household. Whether you want an organized space for toys and games or a logical place for keeping all your winter clothes, your new walk-in closet could be just the solution you're looking for.

A walk-in closet can be an easy way to add valuable square footage to your home without requiring any major construction work. Talk with our team today about how it can help you achieve more organization and better convenience in your daily life!

Improved Privacy

Privacy is important to many people, and a walk-in closet can offer a reasonable solution to this desire. When you have a walk-in closet built in your bedroom, it can give you the privacy that you crave without cutting into square footage or blocking natural light from entering the space.

Your walk-in closet can come with any sort of door or other entryway you'd like. Some prefer a basic sliding door and others want something more ornate and decorative to match their bedroom furnishings, but it's up to you! Our team will help you customize your space to meet your needs and preferences.

Easy Organization

Are you the type who has too many clothes and accessories, and struggles to keep them organized within your current setup? On top of all the other benefits we've gone over here, a walk-in closet also provides you the ability to keep your belongings organized easily and conveniently.

This is partially due to the added space, which we already went over, but also due to other factors. Walk-in closets offer simple ways to divide your belongings into categories. By dividing your clothes using either different types of hanging space (i.e., rods, shelves) or built-in accessories like shoe racks, you can keep your clothing choices under control and make searching for what you want a quick and simple process.

A properly designed walk-in closet should allow it to be easily organized, and ensure that everything in your closet is easily accessible at all times. This way, you can find what you need when you need it, and know exactly where to return it after use.

Easy Cleaning

Finally, cleaning a walk-in closet is also typically far easier than cleaning most other spaces, and this can be a major plus for busy individuals who don't have time to waste on such things. Instead of a cramped, cluttered space that takes forever to clean, a walk-in closet offers room to move around and easy access for cleaning supplies.

The fall is here, and for parents around Salt Lake City and other parts of Utah, this means the kids are back in school. While this is often an exciting time of year, it's also one that comes with a few new tasks or responsibilities -- and for some, it's an ideal time of year to do some organizing in a few important home areas.

At Precision Closets & Garage, organization is our specialty. We offer numerous custom closets and other storage types, including kid's closets if the time has come to upgrade your young child to a greater amount of storage space. Whether you're making this sort of upgrade or just looking to keep things in order during the busy return-to-school fall period, here are some general tips we can offer.

Kid Closet Setups

One of the most important organization areas for any parent as the new school year starts up: Your child's closet space. Whether you're upgrading them to a new closet or simply helping them organize their existing space, here are a few tips.

In some cases, your organization themes for your child's closet and storage space will reveal a simple reality: They need more space. At this point, you can call on our trusty team of closet experts, who will work with you to find the ideal closet setup for your child's increasing needs.

Mudroom or Entryway

Another important area during the school year is the mudroom, entryway, or whatever else you might call this area of the home. This is typically where kids leave items like backpacks and school materials, plus where they take off and put on their shoes.

Once again, take some time to clean and organize this area to prepare it for the wear-and-tear of the upcoming year. Again, though, you may notice that as your child gets older, this area has less and less available space -- and eventually, you may even reach a point where you consider installing new closets or other forms of storage space, an area where our team will be happy to assist you.

For fashion enthusiasts or anyone else who maintains a collection of smaller accessories like necklaces, bracelets and similar items, storage for these items is an important consideration. While they may be smaller, this actually sometimes makes it easier for clutter or disorganization to arise — but the right closet customization and similar themes will leave you in great shape.

At Precision Closets, we’re here to help with numerous closet services and options, including custom storage systems for small spaces like accessory storage areas. Here’s a quick word on how to store a few of the most common fashion accessory types you might own.

Bracelets and Necklaces

If you’re storing bracelets and necklaces, there are a few things to consider. The first is that the storage area should be dark. Exposure to light can significantly reduce colors over time, and also promote tarnish on metal pieces — both of which are undesirable outcomes.

Second, larger items like necklaces may need additional support in the form of wire racks or similar items to prevent them from bending. This is especially true if they’re made from heavier materials.


Earrings can be mounted on hooks or, more commonly, placed in containers. One option to consider is wire racks that are pierced and have space for multiple pairs of earrings on each hook. These are available at a number of retailers and may prove useful in your storage area.

Another common jewelry accessory is the ring, which has a surprising amount of storage options. You can also store earrings in a jewelry box with dividers (which are often adjustable), or you can mount them on wall racks if they’re particularly beautiful and you want to highlight them.

Hat Storage

If you wear hats, it’s best to keep them stored in a dark area, such as a closet. The same conditions apply here as with other accessories — light exposure can cause colors to fade and certain materials, particularly straws, may not react well with humidity. Many people choose to hang hats on racks, though others place them vertically in drawers.


Scarves and other similar types of accessories can be stored in a few different ways. One of the most popular is to fold them and store them in drawers or over hanging rods (which are available for this purpose at many stores). Though they don’t take up much space, folding helps keep them out of the way when storing this type of accessory.

If you’re looking to store a large number of scarves, it might be a good idea to place them in containers so they stay organized.


Many people have closets that double as shoe storage areas — and there are many different options for this type of use. The most common is shelves that display shoes; another involves the use of over-the-door racks that limit the floor space you’re using. Both of these are easily customized to your space and your shoe collection, so it’s a great way to maximize the value you get out of a limited amount of space.

For more on accessory storage within your closet system, or to learn about any of our closets, pantries, garages or other storage themes, speak to the staff at Precision Closets today.

When we refer to our custom closet systems at Precision Closets & Garage, such as our custom bedroom closets, we truly mean custom. Our team will measure your space and account for any specific details or desires you have while planning out a custom closet design and installation, plus ask you questions about the items that will go in the closet, the sorts of accessories you need and more.

This means we’re able to construct the perfect closet for any specific need, including certain special uses of bedroom closets that some are interested in. One such option: The “beauty room” closet, also sometimes called a “glam room,” where items like makeup, hair products and clothes can all be combined for a comprehensive experience – one that’s great for both individuals and groups. If you’re looking for a walk-in closet that doubles as a beauty room in Salt Lake City or any surrounding area, what are some of the top themes to consider? Here are a few.

Importance of Lighting

Lighting is important for most closet spaces, but particularly so for those where you might have multiple mirrors and will be performing tasks like applying makeup, doing your hair or several others. For beauty room closets, it’s ideal to utilize both natural and man-made light in complementary ways – some actual bulbs will surely be necessary for specified mirror areas, but it’s best to top that off with some nice natural light from the open room near the closet if possible.

One popular choice for the beauty room: “Glam” mirrors, which come with light bulbs already included. Some of these will have multiple bulbs to use as-needed.

Storage Space and Options

And of course, no beauty closet will be ideal without the proper storage space – for all the items that might be used. From drawer separators for makeup through the proper bars and hanging locations for clothes, you need to ensure that everything will have a home within your setup, even if you have more than one person in the space at the same time.

Decorating and Accessorizing

And once you’ve ensured your beauty closet will be both spacious enough and properly-lit, you can get to the real fun part: Decorating and accessorizing the space, from the way everything is laid out to the additional aesthetics you choose to include – many will pick themes like plants, art or related items to complement their space. Pillows and other cushions are also popular, especially if you’re planning on having one or more chairs for people to sit on.

There are a few basic day-to-day life elements that pretty much no one enjoys spending time on, and doing the laundry is a great example. One theme that helps you minimize the boring, laborious time you spend doing your laundry: Improving your laundry room storage themes and capacity to make the entire process more convenient.

At Precision Closets & Garage, we’re here to help. We offer a huge variety of laundry room cabinets ideal for storage, plus assistance with numerous other themes that will improve the convenience and simplicity of your laundry setup. What are some of the top areas to consider if you’re looking to streamline your laundry room organization? Here’s a primer.

Laundry Room Cabinets

First and foremost, you can set the table for a comprehensive laundry room setup by going with quality laundry room cabinets. The primary use of cabinets in the laundry room is for storage, whether of items like detergents and fabric softeners or for a few other possible items, such as an ironing board. If you have children or pets, you should consider placing these cabinets higher up so they cannot be messed with.

In other cases, some even utilize cabinets to store their washer and dryer. This allows for these high-value items to be protected while also bringing a sleek, “hidden” aesthetic to the entire room. There are several good options when it comes to laundry room cabinet selection and usage.

Large Countertops

In addition, maintaining large countertop space is often important for laundry room setups. These areas make it far easier to fold and sort clothes, making it simpler to organize the entire family’s laundry all in one place. The counter also offers a better location than the top of machines on which to place laundry baskets or other heavy items.

Foldout Board

Do you regularly take part in ironing clothes? If so, you should strongly consider a folding ironing board in the laundry room. This item, which can easily be placed behind cabinet doors in many cases, removes the need for you to drag your portable ironing board around the house every time you need it. You can have it installed at the ideal height, meaning there will be no adjustment needed between sessions.

Hanging Rods

Finally, be sure to place at least a couple hanging rods, drying racks or similar hanging components in the space. These are ideal for wet clothes, towels and other items that might need to hang, but can be hung up in discreet locations that don’t limit the space in the room.

Most don’t tend to associate closets directly with their kitchens, but there’s one important type that any current or future homeowner should be considering within this room: The pantry. Often serving as the primary storage area for a given kitchen, a pantry plays a major role in how the rest of the room will be laid out – and quality custom pantries are often a huge asset for homeowners.

At Precision Cosets & Garage, we’re here to offer a variety of custom closet systems, including custom kitchen pantries and related themes for all our clients. What are some of the key benefits we bring our clients with custom pantry themes, and what are some of the top reasons to make this investment as a homeowner? Here are some basic factors to keep in mind.

Adding Home Value

There are several kitchen remodel types that will do wonders for your overall home value, and installing a new custom pantry is absolutely one of them. Storage space is one of the single largest factors potential buyers consider when they’re scouring the market, and it will have an enormous impact on your bottom line.

When you combine this with the fact that a new pantry is a relatively inexpensive remodel, you’re already in great shape. You pay a pretty small amount for this improvement, but especially for homes with limited kitchen space previously, the impact you’re making on value is huge.

Item Location

From a more practical standpoint, one of the key reasons a custom pantry is so valuable is organization and item location. For older, poorly-designed pantries, storing and finding things on a day-to-day basis can be enormously frustrating; on the flip side, a custom pantry that you design will allow you full control over this realm. You can choose to include or not include items like cabinets or drawers for food storage, if needed, or arrange for basic labeling as part of the remodel.

Specific Storage Needs

A custom pantry also allows for more specified uses. Say you have a large appliance on your counter with no other good storage location – you can design a place within your new pantry specifically for this or any other item. Other options include hooks, wall racks and related items to assist with convenience.

Freeing Counter Space

And down related lines, now that you have the ability to move that gigantic mixer or another large item off your counter, think about how much space you’ll have! This will allow you to do a variety of things, whether it’s increasing your cooking and prep space, creating workstations or any other task in between.

Closets are one of many great examples of areas within a home where both practical and aesthetic themes are at play simultaneously, and one specific element that touches on both is light. Enough light allows for locating items and using the closet properly, for starters, but also brightens the space and makes it more aesthetically pleasing.

At Precision Closets & Garage, we’re happy to offer a huge range of custom closets, cabinets, organizers and related systems for any part of your Salt Lake City home or building, and we’ve assisted numerous clients with light themes for their closets. While artificial lights will often serve many of your needs here, it’s also important to consider natural light sources and the ways they interact with your closet. Here are some general tips and themes to keep in mind.

Closet Cabinet Doors

While there’s nothing wrong with an open storage format for shelves in your closet, one concern some people have with this approach is the potential of sunlight impacting clothing. Enough exposure to sunlight, even through glass windows, will eventually risk fading or other risks to certain fabrics, and many of our clients want to avoid this.

If this is your top priority, it’s an easy one to attain. Add on mirrored closet doors, tinted glass inserts or other cabinet door formats to protect your clothes while still allowing light into the overall area. In addition, you might consider lighter painting hues inside the closet, since portions of natural light will be blocked to protect clothes.

Sunlight Entry Format

It’s also important to consider the basic positioning and direction of the closet and how it will interact with direct sunlight. If you have southern and eastern windows in your room, you’ll get more light during the morning and around noon; western windows will see lower sunlight levels in the late afternoon, and northern windows will come with the least sunlight of any.

Generally, clients arrange their closets so delicate clothes and any accessories that may be impacted by sunlight are blocked from it. Accessories often used here are gauzy curtains, which will prevent clothing damage without fully blocking the warm, natural light of the sun from entering the space.

Skylight Usage

If you’re looking to add natural light, you might be considering skylights. It’s important to work with a professional for this sort of installation, ensuring it’s built and installed correctly and does not risk leaking or any other roof concerns.


If you’re prioritizing natural light to the closet area, it’s also important to keep your vents in good shape. Natural sunlight makes the temperature rise, which might stress certain fabrics or accessories – but a strong HVAC vent system will allow for circulation and ventilation of air that will limit these concerns.
