Closets With A Whole Lot More (Than Valet Rods)
Time-saving, convenient, and flexible? Closet accessories provide all three with solutions that are practical, innovative, and eye-catching. We are here to guide you through the latest options and trends available to you through Kambium. Here’s what you need to know.
Folding Station Here is the gift that keeps on giving! Customers will love having a clutter-free space that tucks neatly under a shelf. With a simple pull, closet folding stations like the one pictured below from Tag Hardware, give homeowners access to a convenient location to fold shirts, pants, and sweaters. But that’s not all. It’s also perfect for setting a phone, laptop, purse, and other frequently used items on.
‣Pro tip: Place the folding station next to or above the drawers where folded items will be stored.
Drawers Galore The best closet design is one created with your client’s wardrobe in mind. We carry several different drawer capabilities that allow for storing more than the usual sweaters and jeans. Specialty drawers and dividers like a divided deep drawer, lingerie drawer, or a jewelry drawer insert offer added customization that differentiates a closet design. Homeowners will appreciate these added features designed to protect their items and make them easier to find.
‣Pro Tip: Tag Hardware offers a PDF of their product manual that nicely highlights many of their most desirable options. Print and have on hand at a design consultation or easily email to a customer.
Symphony Wall Organizer Space-saving and versatile, the Symphony Wall organizer is the perfect complement to any closet. It’s modern, easy to install, and fits virtually anywhere because of its low profile. A variety of hooks offer storage for shoes, ties, handbags, and every accessory imaginable. Your customers will love the versatility almost as much as the aesthetic design it brings to their closet.

Ironing at a Glance A fold-down ironing board is the ultimate space-saver. Adding both convenience and functionality, it’s perfect for when time is limited or when a light touch-up is needed. Several options such as metal legs that lock for stability, soft-assist pop-up, and swivel or rotating mechanisms allow mounting options for many different layouts.
‣ Pro Tip: Talk to us for ideas on how to incorporate a fold-down ironing board into your design in ways that ensure its undetectable when not in use.
Make it a Showcase Have a homeowner interested in a showcase closet? Consider incorporating illuminated glass shelves to display and highlight favorite items and collectibles or a matte gold finish for closet accessories to add warmth and subtle elegance.
