Sharing Spaces

Five Ways Newlyweds Can Make Sharing a Space Possible

Hooray, wedding season… The couple finally says, “I do” and romance fills the air. The honeymoon doesn’t last forever, and soon the couple moves in together. The transition of having your own closet to a shared space might be quite difficult for some couples. However, there are easy ways for newlyweds to share a closet instead of breaking up with their own.

  1. Figure out what to get rid of before moving

    Moving grants the perfect opportunity to go through your wardrobe and figure out what stays and what goes; however, it’s quite a task when moving in with your better half. Try using the simple method, if you haven’t worn it in a while, you will more than likely never wear it again. Consider labeling three baskets “keep”, “toss”, “donate”, and separate as you go through the items. This provides the chance for you to go through everything before just loading it all up. If you already live with your significant other, this would be a great bonding project to do before the big day. Ladies, instead of deciding on you own if his stuff needs to stay or go, work together.

  2. The cleaner the closet, the bigger it looks

    Deciding to clean out a closet helps make the space look larger than it actually is. Pull out hampers, tie rack, valet rods, and pull out jewelry trays make the perfect spaces to hide loose items. Adjustable shelves and islands with drawers make the closet compatible for storing away articles of clothing. Also, placing shoes on the shelves allows for them to not pile up on the floor. With everything having a place, your tiny space is bigger than you realized.

  3. Store out-of-season items

    If you do not have enough space, try removing items from your closet that you will not be wearing for the upcoming season. This will assist in making room for the items needed. Label containers with the season name and store them under your bed, in the attic, or the basement.

  4. Create closet boundaries

    Even if you are sharing a closet, you don’t have to share every shelf and drawer. Dividing a closet helps each partner feel like he or she has their own personal space. Even if the ladies side takes up more space, drawing a line helps.

  5. Design your dream closet

    Your new closet might not be your ideal closet, but who says you can’t make it “the one?” Whether you have a walk-in or reach-in, Classic Closets will help you adjust. Creating a custom closet that fits you and your spouse would be a perfect bonding activity for newlyweds to accomplish together. After all, two brains are better than one.

Now it’s time to sit down and answer some questions:

  • What will work best for the space you have?

  • What do you need in your closet? Do you need drawers, long hanging, adjustable shelves, double hanging or shoe shelves?

  • Could you use accessories like a jewelry tray, valet rod, belt rack or tie rack?

  • What is your budget?

After you’ve answered all the questions from your salesman and he has measured your space, he will then draw your closet using our state-of-the-art designing software. You will receive a 3D rendering of what your closets could look like.

Below are samples of a previous customers floor plan and 3D renderings. If you are satisfied with the drawings, he will then forward them to our main office.

When the office receives the drawings and deposit, the plant manager then composes a cut list. He begins the process of breaking down each room so our employees can build shelving one room at a time.

Next, the staff begins to operate on the machines.

Lastly, the boards are moved to the final station to be wrapped and stacked. To keep all the shelves organized, they are sorted by job, room and unit. They will then be carefully loaded in one of our company vehicles for transportation to your location. Our professional installation crew will meticulously install each organizational unit into your space. You know have a new and improved space to keep you organized!
