The owners of an older home in Alexandria tapped Closets by Design to convert a quirky attic room into a stylish, functional master closet. Slanted ceilings of varying heights presented a challenge for designer Cathy Kling, who installed back-to-back units under the eaves in a stepped design to optimize the space. The layout allows for deep wardrobes; open shelving and niches for hanging items line the walls. Kling selected the Brio closet system, which comes in three-quarter-inch-thick textured wood-grain melamine, in a Driftwood finish. The modern sensibility complements a traditional dresser that anchors the space. closetsbydesign.com

The Container Store’s Laren closet system is enhanced by the company’s Home Edit line of clear, stackable storage drawers and S-hooks. Containers and organizers for pantry, home-office and bathroom use are part of the collection. containerstore.com

KID CENTRAL  Robert Meyers of Chantilly, Virginia-based More Space Place designed a kids’ room with playtime in mind. He selected a Murphy bed system to accommodate two twin beds, with integrated shelving. “Murphy beds in a kids’ room create an instant play space once the beds are folded—and they always look neater,” Meyers says. “There’s also space for additional shelving and storage, or a desk or media center.” Murphy bed systems come in a range of colors, doors and cabinetry styles; counterbalanced, spring-assisted mechanisms make them easy to handle.
