Custom Closets

Sunburst Shutters specialize in the following custom closets and storage options:

Walk-in Closets:
A well-developed walk-in closet room not only adds organizational structure to your home that helps you with your everyday life but also adds personality and style to your home. The main benefit of a walk-in closet is the amount of access it has. You can reach all of your clothes, ensuring that you never forget about that pair of pants that you bought long ago and loved. It keeps you organized and your things accessible. Check out our gallery of custom closets for some inspiration.

Reach in Closets:
Reach in closets are highly customizable storage spaces that are similar to walk-in closets.
One of the benefits of a reach-in closets system is its ability to be adapted. As your storage needs change, you can alter the configuration of the system, moving racks to places where you need them. These custom closets are a great option for growing families.

Entry / Mud Room:
Entry spaces are the first place that a person sees when they walk into your home. Chances are, you pass through it every day on your way to work and when you get back home, so keeping it functional and aesthetically pleasing is a good investment. Equip your entry room with the appropriate shoe racks and coat closets to store everything you need when you’re on your way.

For those who want a mud room, we can help design a space that lets you store all your rain gear before entering your home. The result is improved cleanliness during those rainy or snowy days, and a smooth transition from the outdoors into the warm, cozy indoors.

Specialty Storage:
For specialty organization solutions, Sunburst offers a unique approach in transforming your home to maximize storage space even in places that usually cannot be turned into living spaces. Through our professional design team, we want to efficiently maximize your space, allowing you greater ease in your quality of life.

Storage space is essential for a Vancouver home, and the right storage space can add a unique aesthetic appeal that calls to a person’s personality. Combining functionality and expression, closet spaces simply boost a home’s appeal and helps ease your everyday tasks while still looking stylish.

Closet Organizing

Closet Organizing 101 – Closet Organizers

Sunburst Shutters offers a variety of closet organizers and designs to meet any budget and style. However, your closet needs to be functional in addition to being stylish. Here, we’ve compiled a list of factors you should keep in mind to make the most of your closet spaces.

Rotate

Keep the clothing that you are wearing most frequently in the most readily available areas. Out-of-season clothes, shoes, and accessories should be kept in the closet or in another closet.

Organize

Sort your clothes by category or color to make it easier to find exactly what you need. For additional help, you can insert garment organizers or used multicolored hangers to group your clothing.

If you want to see which clothing items you don’t use a lot, turn all the hangers in your closet the opposite way. Every time you wear an item, turn the hang around. After a few months, you can clearly see what clothing items you use and which probably can go in a deeper corner of the closet.

Double

Double hung closet rods are the best way to squeeze more storage space out of your closet. Measure the length of each item you’ll be hanging there and allow some clearance above and below each rod. Blouses, shirts, skirts, jackets, and kids’ clothes all are good options to use double rods on.

Cubbies

Organize your closet with a combination of double hanging rods, drawers, and shelves. Drawers corral small items such as socks while cubbies hold folded items. Upper shelves can store out-of-season shoes and clothing in clear bins with lids.

Shelves

Don’t flood your closet with too many shelves. Since shelves take up inches of storage space by themselves, too many of them can make it difficult to stack or remove items. The best shelves will fit exactly the various items that you have to store.

Mirrors

Make your closet more functional by hanging a large mirror on the wall behind the dresser. Alternatively, hang a floor-length mirror on a door.

Shoes

Keep the shoes you wear all the time accessible on shelves. Store away your seasonal and special- occasion shoes in easy-to-see clear plastic boxes on the top shelf of your closet. Alternatively, you can simply reuse the original box the shoes came in and attach a picture of the shoes to the box so you can easily see what’s inside.

Small Items

Create storage space for smaller items such as jewellery, scarves, belts, and socks. Narrow drawers in your closet should be outfitted with divider trays to keep things orderly.

Corners

It pays to use every inch of space. You can fill in corner areas with drawer units, shelves, or shoe cubbies.

Dust-Free Storage Space

Create at least a few options for dust-free storage. Cabinets with doors are great choices but are the most expensive solution. Clear or canvas hanging bags designed to hold multiple garments are budget-friendly alternatives.

Window Coverings

Window Coverings 101

Nowadays, the market is filled with so many different window treatment options that it can be difficult to choose what’s right. To help you out, we have created a list of questions that will help guide you through the process.

  • What are my needs for privacy?
  • Is there a window in a bedroom or bathroom? Do I require total privacy in order to feel safe and secure in my home? Do I want to maintain my view and still have privacy?
  • What direction does the window face?
  • Does the room get very hot? Is it necessary to cover the window in the morning but not at night? Do I need to protect my furniture and floors? Is it important to choose energy efficient coverings to lower my heating costs for my home?
  • What are my needs for light control?
  • Is it necessary to control the glare on a television or computer screen? What sort of feeling am I trying to achieve with the light? Do I want the ability to manipulate the light in different ways or in different seasons?
  • How do my windows open and how often do I want to open them?
  • Is this a high traffic area? Are there any safety issues involved with having access to the windows? Do I need to consider the weight of the window covering if I need to open and close it frequently?
  • How much do I want to spend?
  • Do I need to cover every window in the space? Can I be extravagant in one room and more economical in another? Is it important to me to maintain continuity throughout? Is this an investment for my space or a temporary solution?

With these questions in mind, here is a brief overview of the options we offer:

Blinds

Contains multiple slats that can be tilted, lowered, and raised. If vertical, can be opened and closed. Options include Wood Blinds, Composite Wood Blinds, Vertical Blinds, and Venetian Blinds.

Privacy – Slats can be tilted closed for complete privacy or raised for an open view. Slats come in different sizes and are thinner than louvers, and are generally better for maintaining a view than shutters.
Heat Control – Protection against damaging UV rays and heat.
Light Control – Multiple possibilities for manipulating light. Slats can be tilted at multiple angles or raised and lowered for a full view.
Window Function – Most effective in areas with less traffic flow where the blinds do not have to be raised and lowered frequently.

Blinds grant an aesthetic that is classic, complementing, and light.

Shades

Shades are fabrics that raises and lowers as a sheet of material. Options include Sheer Shades, Roman Shades, Roller Shades as well as Panel Tracks, Cellular Shades, and Pleated Shades

Privacy – Fabrics range from complete black-out to varying opacities. With higher percentage openness, it is possible to maintain a view even when the shade is lowered.
Heat Control – Protection against damaging UV rays, even at high percentage openness.
Light Control – Options of minimizing glare while harvesting some light or full blackout. Windows can be fully or partially covered.
Window Function – Works well in high traffic areas where it may be raised and lowered frequently.

Shades grant a modern, clean, and softened aesthetic.

Shutters

Shutters are panels with louvers that tilt up and down. Options include Plantation Shutters, California Shutters, and Interior Shutters.

Privacy – Louvers can be closed for complete privacy – effective against noise pollution.
Heat Control – Good protection against damaging UV rays and heat. Light Control – multiple possibilities for manipulating the light. Louvers can be tilted at multiple angles and panels can be completely opened.
Window Function – Best suited to areas which do not demand too much opening and closing of the panels.

Shutters provide a traditional, classic, and substantial aesthetic.
