Back to school can bring lots of clutter in several areas around the home. As storage professionals, we see all kinds of storage and work space problems develop while school gets into high gear.Here are a few tips to alleviate the added stress: (1) Organize the family coat closet. If space allows, consider adding double hanging for the shorter jackets. Adding a shelf or two for a few extra pair of shoes and the kids’ back packs does a lot to clear up the floor space. (2) This year, don’t let the kids store their books and homework on the kitchen table; find a comfy space where they can do their homework and store their school supplies. This area can be just a small table or desk or even a big comfy reading chair with a bookcase for storage nearby. This way, all the school work and books can be contained in one area instead of overflowing throughout the family space. (3) Keep the sports gear all in one dedicated space; an attached garage can be the perfect location. Just add a few hooks and baskets for cleats, helmets and pads and a tall bin or two for lacrosse or hockey sticks and baseball bats. You’re freed from having all this gear stuffed into your front coat closet, or scattered in the entryway or child’s bedroom. (4) Finally, if you have a mud room area — make the most of it. Using some hooks for the jackets, shelves for shoes, a few baskets for hats or gloves and a couple of bins for book bags can go a long way toward keeping your home clutter free and happy. And remember to include a small bench so the kids can put on their shoes before they dash off to class! Have a happy autumn.

Lisa and Bonnie took a small room in my home and turned it into my dream closet! Being an interior designer I thought I had it all figured out and knew exactly how to design this space… these amazing ladies listened to what I wanted and needed and some how made it better! My closet is absolutly perfect, it’s actually a dressing room, everything I need is there. I love it!! The install team was very professional, neat and paid attention to the smallest of details. Thank you John for making it perfect! I’m in closet heaven! If you need any storage solutions please call Symmetry Closets, you’ll not be disappointed!

I give Symmentry Closets and Diego 5 stars for excellent workmanship, promptness, cleanliness and neatness. I would not hesitate to use them again. I will definitely recommend.
Very happy with the service and product offered. Much better than the well advertised competition.
I just had my walk in closet designed by Dawn. It was installed yesterday and I’m in love!! Thank you! �
So happy with how my master closet came out, thank you Bonnie, Dawn, John, Blessing for your professionalism and expertise. You guys are great!!!
The team at Symmetry is top notch. The closets in my home were barely functional at best with the cheesy wire racks. Dawn designed closet systems for 4 closets and was able to work within my budget without a problem. The install team was professional, super neat, and made zero mess. Now we have all new beautiful closets that are actually organized! We also got a visit from the owner Bonnie on the same day of install to ensure our satisfaction. I would recommend Symmetry to anyone looking to work with a top tier organization to solve their closet woes!

Symmetry closet designed my less than functional kitchen pantry. I am so happy with the way the pantry turned out. It is not only now functional but it is fabulously designed and pretty too! The installer was one of the most considerate workers I have ever had do work in my house. He was polite as well. He not only installed but swept and vacummed and even washed the shelves! Now that is service!
I recently saw a Laundry Room you did at a friends house, WOW, what a great job!
Bonnie designed 2 bedroom closets and a built-linen closet. She gave us well thought ideas. Contacted us when she said she would. Her installation crew came as informed. They were nice,polite and neat. Rooms are well organized now. Everyrhing went smoothly and are pleased!
Thank you for providing professional and expert service and supporting the community. Bonnie we are grateful to your contribution to KiDS NEED MoRE and doing MoRE to help local kids and families coping with cancer and life-threatening illness.
Most excellent closet company. Very professional and proficient. Highly recommended.

Great job done by symmetry closets! Very professional and neat. Highly recommend!
Amazing job with my 2 closets; a master and a linen. Jonathan and Scott were very nice and professional. Left everything clean and did a great job. Thank you, Bonnie!
We were very happy with how our closets turned out and can’t wait to begin organizing everything. Scott and Jonathan were a pleasure to work with. We look forward to working with Symmetry Closets on future projects. Thanks!!
I’d like to thank Bonnie and Scott for the wonderful experience. Bonnie and Scott were Extremely professional. Bonnie arrived at my home promptly with her computer & ideas on hand. After showing her what I was interested in doing, she designed what I wanted and then presided to showed me the finish project on the computer. A Great Asset! Then to my amazement I received a call the very next day letting me know they could schedule my appointment for the end of that same week. AMAZING customer service!!! Scott, who installed my unit, called before he came, arrived on time and was friendly and pleasant. He worked promptly, cleaned up after himself leaving me just to enjoy my ‘New Laundry room area” It looked even nicer than I imagine. Thank you Symmetry Closets…. Bonnie & Scott!!
We had Symmetry Closets do 4 closets – 3 reach in and one walk in – and build a utility cabinet with drawers for our storage room – we live in a condo where space is at a premium. We could not be happier with how things turned out!! The process from start – designing with Bill – to finish – installation with Scott – was wonderful and painless. You get a lot of bang for your buck with this company – almost half the price of some other closet organization companies. Bill made wonderful suggestions and answered all questions – changing the original plans was also no problem. Scott, the installer, could not have been nicer left the place as if he had never been there! We highly recommend this company and are looking forward to working with Bill again on some more storage projects around the house.
Symmetry Closets did a beautiful job…transformational with a great design. Scott installed the closet system – he’s professional and did an excellent job. We highly recommend them. Michele and Joel Schisler
Symmetry is fabulous. Designed beautiful closets for my apartment. I will be recommending them to all my friends.
Bill K. could not have been more helpful or more professional. He designed a closet that met all of my husband’s needs. He listened carefully to our needs and provided us with an excellent solution. His voice is magical and he is a pleasure. Bill promptly responded to phone calls and texts, thus relieving any stress. His service pro, Bobby, was equally as professional and installed the closet carefully. There was no mess and the end product was perfect. We are so pleased with symmetry closets that we have hired them to complete a larger project.

My experience with this company was outstanding. Bonnie customized my home office to meet my needs. The design was beautiful. Bobbie,Jesse and Henry installed the units. They were amazing. They took extra special care of all my floors due to the snow. They installed my units and made sure the room was clean and ready for me to move in. I thank all of you for a wonderful experience and a beautiful work area. I highly recommend this company to anyone.
