TV Closet Makeover Pro, Glen Peloso, Hosts How-to Clinic on Saturday,
December 8 at The Home Depot(R) in Scarborough
TORONTO, ONTARIO, December 3 /CNW/ - This month, ClosetMaid, industry
leader in home organization, releases its newest storage system, ShelfTrack
Nickel. Nickel is the latest finish available in ClosetMaid wire shelving and
brings a soft, elegant look to your closet system. It is available at select
Home Depot stores throughout Canada.
With ShelfTrack, homeowners simply install the horizontal hang track onto
the wall then snap in the vertical standards, brackets, shelving and closet
rods. Choose from building a custom design with open stock product or a
"no-cut" organizer kit with everything you need in one box. Matching
accessories include hamper, drawers, pant rack and shoe shelves. For the
combined style of nickel and wood, mount laminate components like ClosetMaid
Selectives(R) right onto the standards, too.
Two closet makeover clinics will be held Saturday, December 8 at the
Scarborough Home Depot (428 Ellesmere Road / Warden Avenue; (416) 609-1800).
From 11:00 a.m. to 12 noon, and again from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m., anyone is
invited to attend the free workshop hosted by Glen Peloso, TV's closet
makeover expert. Attendees can register to win a ShelfTrack Nickel system
worth $500 at each clinic.
Don't know where to start? Check out these tips from ClosetMaid to clear
1. Sort and discard: Empty your closet seasonally and donate or dispose
what you no longer wear. Then arrange your collection by category, grouping
shirts, pants, suits and dresses. Depending on the nature of your wardrobe,
you can also separate casual clothes from those you wear to work or to work
2. Add shelving: A center tower of laminate or wire shelves creates a
place for accessories and folded items like scarves, sweaters and denim. Upper
storage shelving above the highest hanging rod is ideal for out-of-season
clothes you use less often.
3. Hang efficiently: The storage pros at ClosetMaid recommend that a
closet rod for long items like coats and dresses be placed 70 to 84 inches
from the closet floor. Then create a separate space with two levels of hanging
for shorter items. With a double hang, the top rod should hang 84 inches from
the floor, while the bottom rod hangs at 42 inches. With ShelfTrack, it's easy
to adjust shelves as your wardrobe changes, too.
4. Click your heels: The shoes you wear most frequently should be
accessible by storing them on a shoe shelf or in a hanging caddy. Shoes worn
less often are best kept in boxes on a shelf.
5. Accessorize with style: Include a matching hamper to complete the look
and keep dirty clothes neatly out of sight.
