This post is in collaboration with California Closets. All opinions remain my own.
I was so anxious and could hardly wait for install day. I’m always reminding my boys to have patience, but I had to remind myself a few times because of course I would have loved to have everything happen over night. Remember, before it arrives at your house they are building it custom so there was a few weeks in between before it was time for install. When the installers arrived it might as well have been Christmas morning for me. It all felt like it happened so fast. They prepped the space, brought in the materials, and went right to work. By lunch time I could already see the closet coming to life and of course I had to sneak in there to get a glimpse.
Before I knew it, that special moment came and my closet was done. When the installers cleaned everything up and showed me the finished design, I may have hung out in there for a little while doing a happy dance. It was everything I could have imaged and more. Throughout the process your designer will provide you with a digital design to really allow you to get an idea of what it will look like when it’s done. It’s a great resource to have and was so helpful, but there’s still nothing like seeing it all finished and being able to experience it in person.
I knew from the start I wanted a space that was light and airy. We went with a Chic Gray color for the walls and the finish on the closet details is Dove. I really enjoyed learning more about the products California Closets uses and how they aim to provide environmentally sustainable options.
After using my closet for several weeks now, I’m not sure there’s really anything I would change about it. I know it might sound silly, but it’s kind of empowering to be able to get up on a stool to reach for some of my things on the higher shelves. I keep joking that I want to get one of those library ladders and slide around my closet with it.
Stay tuned because I’m really looking forward to sharing another space with all of you. It’s a room I didn’t think I would spend as much time in, but with a house full of boys, I should have known it was inevitable.
