In this article, we will walk you through Closets Las Vegas’s small closet remodel and installation process. Witness our team in action as we prep the site and create a fabulous His and Hers closet in this Blue Heron residence in Southern Highlands.
This project is not a simple small closet remodel and installation. The team had to work on two-sectioned walk-in closets with distinct characters and designs. Prior to building the actual closet, Closets Las Vegas convened for planning and conceptualizing the design. During this time, the team also decides what materials to use, the colors, and style. Joe Ferraro, owner of Closets Las Vegas, then orders the materials – lighting system, custom cut wood panels, racks, and accessories, among others. Once they arrive, the action starts.
When the materials are ready to be transported to the installation site, the crew loads them into a van. Depending on the quantity, sometimes they use two vans. Even at this stage, the crew is extra careful in handling the materials to prevent damage, which would affect the closet’s aesthetics.
The crew starts unloading the materials when they arrive at the installation site. First, they prepare a protective sheet on the floor and organize them carefully for easy access. While on duty, the crew members are also in full gear wearing protective face masks and belts for carrying tools.
After unloading, the team started prepping the closet’s location. It’s important that the walls are clean, smooth, and well-preserved first to prevent any unwanted gaps, uneven panels, and damages on the texture. So, they tear out the cabinets and wood panels carefully and remove the excesses by cutting along the caulking line. This method keeps the paint or wallpaper intact.
The team begins to lay the foundation for the closets and drawers after taking down the old cabinets. The foundations for the shelving system and cabinetry will serve as their guide. It also creates a clear pathway for the low-voltage wiring. While fixing the cabinetry to the wall, the crew covered the screw holes as well.
As the team finishes the outline, they start setting up the low-voltage wiring. This Blue Heron His and Hers closet uses beautiful, relaxing, and energy-efficient lighting systems – lighted rods for the shoe racks, overhead lighting for the closets, a few puck lights, snow drift lighting, and countertop lighting.
To keep the unsightly wiring out of the way, the team runs the cables along the back and under the wood panels. Then, they install the LED lighting system where needed and test if they are working properly.
The construction team works on the shelving and cabinetry alongside the electrical wiring and lighting systems. The team ensures that they are solid and sturdy enough to support heavy contents. To achieve this, the staff creates a hole on the wood and drill an anchor into it. The team installs several anchors but section has two cam locks, which further strengthens the system. The result is a strong shelving design that is so strong you can hang off the rails without tearing the panels.
It’s easy for the staff to install the wood and glass panels because the materials have been measured and pre-cut based on the plan ahead of time.
By this time, the closets are coming together nicely. The drywall in some areas is still exposed and the drawer fronts aren’t fixed yet. But the team has already completed most of the closet’s features: electrical wiring and lighting system, doors, hampers, wire baskets, shoe racks, pant racks, and belt racks, among others.
To complete the job, the team applies the finishing touches and perfects the design. This includes locking the wood panels in place to cover the drywall, filling and polishing the gaps in corners and bases, and fixing the drawer fronts.
The His and Hers closet in this Blue Heron residence is another milestone for Closets Las Vegas. After all the dirty work, the team packed and cleared up the place without no nut or bolt in sight. The only trace they proudly left is a majestic His and Hers coset with lasting beauty and quality. Their hard work produced more than a simple closet remodel but a remarkable work of art.
The Hers section is like a transition from winter to spring with bright lights to emphasize its modern design elements. All drawers are full-extension glide, which conveniently gives the owner full access to everything that’s inside. On top of the dresser drawers is a thinner jewelry insert, which can also accommodate other accessories.
Next to it is an all-glass shelving system with aluminum frame glass doors and a mirror backer, which can be a perfect display case for bags and other personal items.
While Hers is brighter, the His side is sophisticatedly darker with deep brown cabinetry and shelving systems. Like the drawers installed in the Hers section, the His section also features some 19-inch deep full-extension glide drawers with a jewelry insert, a hamper with a detachable bag, pull-out wire baskets, and an additional metal shoe rack. Moving to the right is a full-size shoe rack as well with lighted rods around the frame for elegant shoe storage.
It also features a pull-out mirror with a swivel function, so it slides in any direction.
As satisfying as it is to see a small closet remodel and installation process, seeing your own closet go from simple to sensational is more fulfilling.
