    OUR FEATURED DESIGNER

    How Symmetry Closets and Anne Marie Virgilio Began a Design Collaboration:

    Anne Marie met us at Symmetry Closets through The Interior Design Society, Long Island Chapter, about two years ago – she was looking for custom closet design services to pair with her interior design projects. Since we’re both part of the same design-focused trade group, we work well together–it was a perfect fit. We originally met at a local IDS meeting – she had a project with Symmetry Closets in mind. Anne Marie met with one of our closet designers at her project site, where we worked out the design concept with her and developed plans and 3D renderings to discuss with the client. We’ve collaborated on several projects since.

    OUR FIRST FEATURED PROJECT-Playful and Practical

    The Concept

    The Kids Room-Converts to Home Entertainment Concept

    This family has young children who required a centralized play space. We repurposed this area, between the living room & kitchen, to become a beautiful kids room, with toy storage space—with the ability to quickly put away toys behind doors and in drawers, and still stay organized. There’s a window seat, shelving for toys and books, and more. All with elegant shaker style cabinets and crown molding.

    Children Grow Up So FastChildren Grow Up So Fast

    Of course, one day soon the children will no longer need this play space next to the family room & kitchen. What then? Anne Marie commissioned the proportions of the shorter wall unit to be a suitable future buffet and dry bar area. A simple change-out of the playful knobs, some decorative items on the counter surface, and this kid’s play area becomes a sophisticated home entertainment area.

    Why Built-Ins?Why Custom Built-Ins?

    As you can see in this image, built-in cabinets are the most efficient way to fit storage into narrow spaces—because you don’t even need to leave space for the base trim! Consider built-in wall storage for a hallway or a narrow dining room. We added the decorative side panels here to harmonize with the formal dining room to the right.

    Efficient, Compact Space Planning

    The client needed a handsome and functional home office work environment, easy to clean up and comfortable enough to work in all day. Anne Marie combined all her client’s needs into this efficient space using some tricks:

    • The room isn’t that big but the ceiling is tall. Running the custom office cabinets to the ceiling with crown molding makes this small home office seem huge.
    • Deep home office desk with shallower upper storage cabinets keep the tall unit feeling light despite the medium wood tone.

    Not So Neat? Keep it Hidden!Home Office Organization Tip:

    It’s so important to keep the home office from taking over the home—keep clutter at bay and invite serenity into the space.

    Cabinet doors and drawers are necessary to keep a home office neat, and open shelves keep it visually airy with pretty mementos and collectables feeling right at home.
