Often when we arrive to help create custom closet organization solutions for Dallas families, we find that the most hard-working men are the least likely to prioritize their own closet space needs. Men, today’s article is for you, so listen up: you need and deserve your own well-organized, custom-crafted closet space.
While as a modern blue-collar worker you don’t need to store cashmere sweaters, cuff links, pocket squares, silk ties, wingtip shoes, or expensive briefcases, you do have valuable clothing, both functional and protective, that should be stored conveniently and correctly.
Custom closets are also an opportunity for you to express yourself. Your personal sense of aesthetics may not work with the home’s overall decorating scheme, but in your closet, you are allowed huge freedom. We can customize the color, texture, size, divider spaces, and functional add-ons in your closet exactly to your taste.
While we do advise clients who will be storing shoes that see heavy outdoor use avoid choosing fabric shelf lining, we can choose resilient man-made surfaces that will stand up to even the toughest work boots.
If you’re a hard-working man, you likely reach for some combination of the following items when you’re getting ready for work:
- Work Boots
- Protective Shoes
- Button-down Work Shirts
- Work Pants
- Heavy Belts
- Heavy Coats
- Other Protective Gear
Having a space that keeps these items organized and easy to reach will make your early-morning routine simpler and quieter—a great benefit when you’re attempting to slip away without waking your loved ones.
While we find that women generally tend to prefer cubbies, containers, and cabinets, men prefer open, minimal aesthetics. Clear acrylic dividers can create all the division and organization the simpler wardrobe that today’s working man requires: undershirts, socks, and intimate clothing can all be organized this way, whether on shelves or in drawers.
As a blue-collar worker, you’re probably going to be covered in some sort of dirt or grease by the end of the day. Having a built-in hamper installed in your closet will allow you to toss your clothing directly into a contained space, with no risk of transferring grime to other surfaces in the house. (This is especially important if your significant other is a big fan of white or light colored furniture and bedding.)
Of course, being grimy at the end of the day doesn’t mean you don’t want to begin your day clean and well-groomed! Having your work shirts, work pants, and coat stored or hung properly means that you’ll start your day in tidy clothes, and getting ready for work will be easier and simpler.
Searching for clothing in a dark, disorganized closet is a waste of time. Even worse, donning a crumpled shirt you pulled out of a cramped drawer gives a bit of a negative impression. As you know, choosing a clean presentation communicates a strong sense of self-respect. When we honor and respect ourselves, others are more likely to do the same when interacting with us.
