When new state regulations cause a no kill animal shelter the need to make changes, it’s Closet Factory to the rescue. Hope for Life needs to renovate after losing about 30% of their much needed space. “We rescue all of our animals from death row” says Pauline Cushman who started the rescue in 2002. After the Department of Agriculture advised of the required changes, Pauline says “We knew right up front we were really gonna be pressed for storage.” The need for shelving to store the supplies needed for the dogs and cats leads to the experts finding an efficient solution!
“You probably can’t do this….I have a very strange request” was the way Carla Gore presented her idea for a mobile boutique. A step van presents unique challenges that Senior Designer Claudia faces in an attempt to turn the vehicle into a showcase. The space must be clean and organized so customers can shop, try on and purchase clothing; all in one compact place without feeling crowded. Even with weight considerations, and keeping merchandise secure when in motion, The Closet Factory’s Tami says “We can…..so, we did.”
Mike Gingerich is a contractor who has built over 100 custom homes with his 34 years old business. His wife, Caroline, not only works with Mike, but is also a professional body builder. With this kind of experience, this couple knows that new construction can be a difficult and “weighty” undertaking. Now they’re building their own home from the ground up, but with weather delays the project seems like a load that’s almost too much to bear. That is, until Closet Factory designer Claudia shows up and the weight is lifted, at least as far as the closets are concerned.
Home-A-Rama is a highly anticipated event each year in Hampton Roads. The Closet Factory has been involved for 14 years and has built 5 homes. “We’re not just a closet specific organization company. We can actually custom build a library unit, an office unit, entertainment unit. Anything you might need as far as specific wise, we can do it,” Juan states as he takes you behind the scenes and explains the efficient cutting edge designs.
The age old problem of not enough closet space is solved by the talented designers from The Closet Factory. Laura Allen, called “The Queen of Organization” got tired of having multiple dressers in her bedroom. Laura says “I have an idea of what I want to do, but I’m not certain yet…..Do I want to do one closet? Do I want to do a wall unit?…..I need to talk to Tamra and see what direction we go from there.” Her husband had never had his own closet, so both are looking forward to having ample space. “Its crowded…it’s very crowded.” The excitement of the design grabs Laura as Tamra offers her expertise.
Doctors Lewis and Lewis agree on almost everything. After a complete physical, their joint research has led them to a finding that is undeniable. The master closet must undergo an operation. Remove wire shelving, add mirrored cabinet, plenty of shoe storage, plenty of drawers and make it all pretty! STAT! But they hit a snag when Steven and Melissa can not agree on the best treatment….he’s a hanger and she’s a folder. Time to bring in the “design paramedics” at Closet Factory for a true Operation Reorganization.
What do a library of interesting books, a collection of Japanese warrior statues and computer equipment have in common? A lot when they take over the dining room.

Beautifully organized shelving to display books, a showcase for a prized collection as well as a place for computer work and homeschooling, all come together in one room to make for quite a happy family!
As the owner of a successful real estate company, Lonnie Bush “prides himself in offering an incomparable level of service to both consumers and agents. He uses his expertise in Real Estate to represent his clients in their Real Estate endeavors.” It says so right on his website. So when he realized his own master closet was not a space that conjures “pride of ownership”, he gave himself the best advice he could give a client, call CLOSET FACTORY! And never one to do something small, Lonnie decided to up the game and surprise his wife! Only the stealthiest Closet Factory designer and installers can take on a project like this.
Sharon Davis is no stranger to the exceptional designs of Closet Factory, so naturally, she sought out Lead Designer Tami’s expertise for help with building out a recently purchased condo. Completely gutted with no walls, Tami sees an opportunity to use the concept Jeff created; build the home around organizational spaces as opposed to designing needed spaces in a built home.
Greg Olson runs his own business. Greg’s wife Janet and the kids are avid crafters, so between the four of them, they generate a lot of paper! It’s taking over the house! But after 8 years, the Olson’s have settled in and there is no designated space for these two, very different functions.
We’ve all heard of the coveted man cave. Well, step over gentlemen, the “Closet Factory Woman Cave” has arrived! Jeff and the Closet Factory gang reach out to the community by participating in several designer events, such as the Annual Mid-Atlantic Home & Outdoor Living Show, and that’s where Christina Dowdy discovered them. Christina is the owner of a successful catering business, so when she has any time off she likes to spend it at her home. Having only lived there for a short while, she quickly realized that in this large home, there was no special area designated just for her. With inspiration from Closet Factory and designer, Claudia, Christina decided to turn an extra bedroom into her dressing-sitting-thinking-room, fully equipped with a beverage refrigerator.
Todd Mills is one of the most organized guys on the planet. There’s not one item in his home that does not have a designated spot, so Todd and Closet Factory are a natural fit. When he moved from his large home to a townhouse, he seized the opportunity to get even more organized! He has a Closet Factory office and even a floating wall shelf to display his father’s gorgeously detailed model ships; a Closet Factory first. So what happened to his garage? Todd needs a place for his tools, lawn equipment, his bike, a refrigerator, a work bench that doesn’t block the water meter, AND room for his car! Can designer Tamra create a space to keep up with Todd’s high standards?
Jim and Ednearl Thomassen have made an art of downsizing as they move. First move: family home of 20 plus years to a high-rise condo. Current move: high-rise condo to sightly smaller, newer condo. But condo living has not put a damper on their active lives and near constant visitor schedule so sacrificing function with space is not an option! Hmmm….maybe a bed in the office? Can Closet Factory and designer Carol help the Thomassen’s scale down without compromising all the things they love to do?
What does a client do with their Closet Factory custom-built space when it’s time to move? Take it with them of course! Rene Hamilton-Wilson and her husband love their Closet Factory Murphy bed.

Husband and wife, Dan and Jennifer Cole willingly spend time apart while they proudly serve our country. When back at home in the USA, running from various rooms of the house, looking for a shoe here, a scarf there, is NOT the way they want to spend their time together.

Working with designer Jacinta and many hours on Pinterest, they agree to a strategic plan! A master DRESSING ROOM! But will the odd room render this custom design, “Mission Accomplished” or “Mission Abandoned”?

Wayne DeAtley loves his ocean facing condo but isn’t interested in the usual decorative stylings that go with beachfront property. Walk through his front door and you’ll think you stepped into a refurbished loft apartment in Chicago or Manhattan. Olympic skier, entrepreneur, and doting father, Wayne designed his home to include old factory brick and exposed duct work which calls for darker woods, frosted glass, and modern metals…not what you normally see by the sea. Is Closet Factory Designer Tamra brave enough to turn this beachfront dream into an urban reality or will we hear a big city traffic crash where the waves used to?
