SpaceMakers helps customers get organized

Heather Smith believes in makeovers.

As a sales and design representative for SpaceMakers, 10911 Parkside Drive, she is continually tasked with assisting customers in making over the unattractive areas of their home.

“People come in and want to redo a closet area they don’t like,” she said. “We primarily do custom closets, but we’ve branched out to laundry rooms, pantries and even garages.”

The options available to a customer depend on the size of the area they want to organize and the amount of money they wish to spend, she said. It could cost as little as $700 or run into thousands of dollars.

One of the products the SpaceMakers design team uses to help organize customer closets is melanine.

“It’s a high density fiber-board,” Smith said. “It’s heavy duty, but won’t warp or sag.”

This would be advantageous for the more humid areas of a home, she said, such as a laundry room or underneath a sink.

Melanine is available in different colors and the cost depends on the style of melanine used.

Smith said they use closet islands to help a customer organize their space, but the island is large and requires a bit more space.

“A lot of the newer homes are being built with large his-and-her master closets, so the islands work well in there,” she said. “Sometimes people in older homes have a room they don’t use and they turn it into a master closet, leaving room for an island.”

A closet island, much like a kitchen island, can be multipurpose. One side of the island could house an ironing board, allowing space for drawers or jewelry shelves or whatever else a customer may want.

We also offer Iron-a-Way for people who would prefer their ironing board be hidden,” she said.

Iron-a-Way hides a fold-out ironing board in a cabinet that could be painted to accommodate the surrounding room, she said. It is something convenient for customers with a small laundry room.

The businesses’ four designers, Smith said, also employ the use of items from Elfa Décor. These items allow organization in a variety of spaces. Any items needed to customize a closet are pre-cut, Smith said, and assembled on site. No cutting is done at the customer’s home or office.

Smith said the business has been helping customers for more than 10 years, but it has been on Parkside Drive for a little more than three years. It is owned by Robin and Travis Carbaugh.
