4 Really Cool Custom Storage Solutions

4 Really Cool Custom Storage Solutions

On May 6, 2015 we visited the beautiful Manhattan showroom of transFORM. They are located in the NY Design Center, and we were blown away at the custom storage solutions they offered! Here at Metropolitan Window Fashions we would like to share four of the latest custom storage solutions that are available. If you are looking for a custom alternative to a pre-fab, one-size fits-all world, transFORM has the custom solution for you.

  • Home offices – Everyone has a home office these days and it has definitely evolved from just having a computer desk. transFORM offers many brilliant, custom storage solutions for you to choose from including tons of different finishes, contoured countertops, glass shelves, glass door inserts, and crown molding. The drawers are soft-closing and there are full extension glides for easy access to files and supplies. They are even clever enough to handle your wires by discreetly concealing them.
  • Dressing Rooms – Here is a luxury we all would love to have! On display is the most beautiful Dressing Room, with creamy white wood and brass fixtures – just one of several different finishes that you can choose from. An island, centered in the room features a gorgeous vanity, both with stone tops. Customizable shoe cabinets offer adjustable shelves and cubbies for all your Louboutins. I loved the attention to detail of the velvet lined drawers, which are an excellent way to store your jewelry. And the ingenuity of a concealed hamper to help maintain organization with a polished look was one more great addition to the display.
  • Sliding Doors – We found this feature very interesting because we are often asked about dividing large spaces so that they look clean and finished, and I would definitely recommend them. These doors could be custom built to separate space, as well as doors for your reach-in closets. The sliding doors have aluminum frames and are tiered. This construction allows all of the panels to move, providing easy access. You can choose from a variety of finishes for the glass on the doors. Some of the finishes are frosted, milky and even mirrored. They can be customized to work with your décor. In the showroom, the sliding doors were used to conceal the TV as well as closet and storage space. Nicely done!!
  • Wall Beds –  Space is a premium in NYC, and with the trend towards micro spaces, the wall bed is sure to be a hit! When the bed is closed, it increases your living space. The bed is simply lowered down when you are ready to use it – a great option for guests. The design is clean and finished, maximizing your total living space. These beds and wall units can be combined to provide a finished and smart solution for your home. As with all the other custom storage solutions, you have a choice of beautiful finishes and hardware to choose from.
