Beyond the basics

While spring cleaning often brings to mind tasks like a fresh coat of paint or gutter maintenance, it’s also the perfect opportunity to tackle lower-priority projects that linger on your wish list. Closets by Design offers creative solutions to rejuvenate the forgotten corners of your home.
