I worked with Diplomat Closet Design for my Master Bedroom closet. I shopped around quite a bit trying to find the best quality for an affordable price. I heard about Diplomat from a close friend who recently had a great experience! The consultation was very easy to schedule and didnt take long either. They were able to quickly discuss my needs, take measurements, and shortly therafter produced a digital mock up of a design specific to my needs. The install was easy and quick and the results are amazing! They were affordable, easy to work with, informative, and my new closet has exceeded my expectations. I am now discussing a second closet with them for my spare bedroom! I would absolutely refer them to friends and family, and already have!
We had a wonderful experience with Diplomat Closet Design. WOW!!! Our closet is amazing now. They custom built us the most incredible closet system one could ever want. Ryan Lindstadt (owner) came up with four different design plans (all in 3-D so it was super easy to visualize). He was extremely professional, courteous, and always got back to me when I had a question. Ryan and his team, Tim and Kevin, did a super job building it, and everything was absolutely perfect. Words really can't describe how awesome our closet system is. Oh, and the price was very very reasonable. Super high quality materials, super high quality craftmanship, and super price. We couldn't have asked for more. Seriously.
We were in the market for closet systems for a master closet, our baby's closet and a simple garage storage solution. We had several quotes, but Chris from Diplomat went above and beyond our expectations and made our choice easy (not the lowest quote either). He was on time for appointments, provided detailed sketches of each room and was very knowledgeable. Our wishlist for the master was long and put us over what we wanted to spend, but he was able to suggest a few minor changes to lower the cost and get us much closer to our budget! We've suffered with wire shelving since we moved in and it was a big step to invest in closet systems... needless to say it was WELL worth every penny and couldn't be happier with the choice we made to go with Diplomat!
A co-worker recommended Diplomat Closet Designs to me and I am so happy he did. I really enjoyed working with this team! They installed a well-designed, quality system for my woman cave. I now have a very pretty, very efficient walk in closet, and all at a very reasonable price. Chris and Ryan were so pleasant to work with, they provided a layout that covered all my needs. Kevin and Tim did a wonderful job with the install. From start to finish, this team and process was great! I have already asked to them to work on another walk-in closet in our home. Thank you so much Diplomat Closet Design!
In the traditional sense, houses are designed for guests to enter through the front door and into the foyer. When they walk in, the most visible areas are often decorated and appealing to the eye and kept clean (for the most part). When a guest walks into your home, most homeowners want them to feel some sense of cleanliness and order. What would happen if they’d walk in through your garage? Your laundry room? Your mudroom? Would they feel the same sense of welcome-ness and order? Below are a few tips to help you enhance your “second entrances”. After all, who wants to walk all the way around to the front door, when you can just stroll in through the garage?
Slatwall is the simplest and most cost-effective solution for garages. It’s visually appealing, it sits close to the wall and you can put it virtually anywhere. It’s great for hanging things like bikes, tools, chairs, ladders, etc…. basically everything that ends up in the middle of the garage floor! Even some basic racks of shelves are great. Most garages have more height than a typical room, so use it. Use big Tupperware buckets and throw them on a shelf. Stack them to the ceiling; just get it off the floor! Of course, they get more elaborate with custom cabinets and flooring options, but even simple solutions get the job done.
These areas tend to be collect-alls for shoes, sports equipment, jackets, bags and any other junk that makes it in through the garage, but not through to the rest of the house. Lockers are the latest and greatest trends and really transform these areas, but simple solutions also help a great deal… cubbies, drawers, baskets, hooks, bench seats. Same school of thought here – make it easy to get it off the floor, on a shelf or in a basket/drawer.
Whether it’s upstairs or down, Laundry rooms are often neglected. A single wire shelf or cabinet doesn’t cut it anymore. This is one of the areas of the house that we spend a ton of time in and don’t even realize it! Even the new appliances are coming in more attractive colors and designs. Front load, top load, compact, sinks, countertops, drying areas.
