    "Thank you for the great work. The newly painted room looks fantastic. Tom notices everything so that if there is a chance I might want something additional I can have them do it. I feel very comfortable with the guys, and as usual your company came through, does what I need done, and does not disappoint me."

  • Adding More Closet Space For Less!

    [caption id="attachment_7285" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Organizational Tips"][/caption]

    Looking to add more space in an already packed closet? Take a look at some of these tips for increasing space in your closet...for little to nothing at all. Be sure to give your Cleveland Contractors Reilly Painting a call for all of your home mechanic needs.

    Double Up

    You need to dedicate only two-thirds of your closet to hanging rods. To maximize that space, mount two of them—one well above eye level for longer garments and one a little more than 3 feet off the ground for shorter (or foldable) ones. Position both at least 1 foot from the back wall.

    Put Small Items in Their Place

    Designate a container (a bowl or bin on a shelf, or a pouch that hangs on the inside of the door) to serve as a catchall for loose change, receipts, or other items that accumulate in your pockets.

    Add Guiding Lights

    Closets should be wired for lighting. If yours isn't, use battery-powered stick-up LED pucks, such as Sylvania's Dot-its along the top and under shelves so that you can find what you're looking for.

    Divide and Conquer

    Avoid jumbled piles of folded clothes by limiting shelf stacks to a height of 10 inches and partitioning them with thin bookends, like Highsmith's steel versions.
