“Installation complete and it looks great. Thanks again for all your assistance. I will call again when we need more closets installed.” Anne, Langley
“I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with my new closets. The design works well and [the installer] did a very nice job installing them. He also did a very nice job in leaving everything as clean as possible. Thanks again.” Manuela, Coquitlam
“[Your installer] came today right on time and did a fabulous job of installing the closets and making sure we got [my daughter’s] shelves just right. [My husband] and I are both thrilled with the closets and the great service you provide. We can’t wait to show them off and we would not hesitate to recommend you to any of our family and friends. Thanks again for bringing some order to the kids rooms” Rose, Port Coquitlam
“.. very fast turnaround. I have to say that you guys are the most responsive out of all the trades we’ve had to deal with on this 5-month renovation. The service from [the designer] and [installer] has been fantastic. I’ve already recommended you to friends.” Winsome, Abbotsford
“Just wanted to let you know how thrilled we are with the closet organizer. The design you came up with actually gives us a 40″ isle. The guys did a great job on the install and were very professional.” Wendy, Abbotsford
“A great big thank you for the wonderful closet system that you designed and installed for me. I can’t believe the difference it makes in terms of beauty and overall functionality. I am just delighted with the whole thing, including price, quality of materials and the careful and efficient installation. Not to mention you went the extra mile in installing the old shelves in my garage. I have already had several of my friends over to take a look because I am so proud to have it. I expect to do all of my entertaining there in future so that everyone can admire it! (lol) You have another raving fan in me and I will be sure to tell everyone I know about you.” Pat, Chilliwack
A great big THANK YOU from our team here and we look forward to working with many more great clients like you!
Clear the clutter
One of the key steps to home organization is to get rid of the items that are just sitting around. One good rule of thumb is that if it hasn’t been used in a year, it’s probably not needed. Use three garbage bags in each room- one to keep, one to toss, and one that can go either way. Sort through all of your items and put them into their appropriate bags. Once the sorting is completed, go through each item in the “either way” bag and decide how important that item really is to you. If you absolutely can not live without it, then put it in the keep bag. Everything else needs to be tossed or given to charity.
Save the containers.
Disposable containers make great storage bins for those small items around the house. Use coffee cans to store nuts and bolts, screws, and other loose hardware in the garage. Baby food jars and mint tins work great for extra storage in drawers. Kleenex boxes are a great place to put those loose shopping bags. Other container ideas include glass jars, baby wipe containers, old lunch boxes, and large cans. Using these items can effectively reduce clutter and keep all of your little items organized.
Furniture with a purpose.
Look for furniture that has drawers for storage. A coffee table with drawers is a great place to store magazines, coasters, and remote controls. An end table with shelves can serve as a display case for collectibles. If your furniture does not have drawers or shelving, use decorated storage bins underneath. If your bed sits up off the floor, use the space underneath for bins that hold clothing and bulky blankets and comforters.
If space is limited, why not go up? Floor-to-ceiling shelving units are perfect for small areas with limited space. The top shelves can be used for all of those off-season items as well as luggage. Organize your closet so off season items can be stored on the top shelf and rotated seasonally. Adding a drawer tower will give you useful drawer space for small items.

One final note on home organization, maximize every space in your home for storage and keep everything in its place. With just a few minutes a day, you can keep your home organized and clutter-free.
With the new year off to a great start, it seems organization is on the minds of many. We have been busily installing custom closets and storage solutions for many of our customers and we wanted to share some photos from our recent projects. What a great way to start off a new year with an organized and de-cluttered closet!
We just launched our new website and are excited to be able to showcase our latest projects and newest installations. We have added many new sections including Accessories, The Process and Wire Shelving to assist you in understanding what we do and the various tools at our disposal. Have a space you would like us to provide a consultation for? We have a new tool that lets you send us your photo so we can provide you with our recommendations and further information. Go to our Contact Us page to submit your photo now.
At Elite Closets we are growing and have just finished a big move into our new location. The building is much bigger and gives us a larger, much needed design centre showcasing our custom closets and storage solutions. We also have a larger warehouse to stock more material which means faster install times for our customers. We had a busy Christmas moving to the new place but are ready and looking forward to the new year in our new location.
