3 Walk-In Closet Upgrade Features Ideal for Displaying Collectibles

Collectibles — Des Moines, IA — A Tech

Due to a lack of natural light and ample storage space, a walk-in closet is an ideal location for people to store collectibles like action figures, dolls, and movie memorabilia. A walk-in closet provides a lot of options for the collectibles, but you can cater the area to even more collectible storage with closet upgrades.

Learn how specific upgrades improve collectible displays and how you can completely transform the way you showcase some of your favorite items.

Built-In Shelves

Give your closet a lot more walking space with the use of built-in shelves. The shelves are built flush with the walls so you can fit more inside of the closet without taking up the actual square footage of the room. Flat built-in shelves give you the opportunity to easily display your collectibles in an organized way.

The shelves can also be installed at different heights to accommodate various figures. For example, if you have a large Godzilla collection, you can request a taller shelf for the figures. If you have small, 4-inch wrestling figures, then you can request a special shelf just for those figures.

The extra floor space also gives you room to display collectibles that stand alone. For example, you may have a freestanding Star Wars statue of Han Solo stuck in carbonite. You can organize everything in the room without having to make compromises for your collectibles.

Closet Island

Much like a kitchen island, a closet island features a flat base on the top. The installation of a closet island gives you an ideal location to display signature items in your collection. When you enter the closet, the island becomes the focal point of the room and allows you to feature some of your favorite collectibles.

For example, if you collect wrestling action figures, then you can display a wrestling ring in the island and put a collection of figures inside the ring. If you collect Hot Wheels cars, then you can set up your favorite collection of cars in the center of the island.

Closet islands may also include drawers for storage. The drawers are ideal for holding extra display accessories. For example, you may store figure stands, putty so figures can stand on their own, or Goo Gone to help remove price tags. The island can even act as a repair area if you need to fix broken parts, change outfits, or customize the figures in any way.

When you purchase a new collectible, you will have everything you need right in the island to properly display the item.

Custom Lighting

One way to help your collectibles stand out is with custom lighting. A walk-in closet features several ways to light up your collectibles. For example, if you have a closet island, then you can have a recessed light installed directly over the island center. The light will act as a spotlight and shine straight down on your display.

For built-in shelves, you can have LED strip lighting installed. The lighting will shine upward and help the collectibles stand out. Lights installed on the top of a shelf can illuminate the figure and eliminate any harsh shadows created by each shelf.

You can also have mood lighting installed in specific areas of the closet. For example, if you have horror movie collectibles, then you can have red lights installed in the section to create an eerie atmosphere to go with the collectibles.

    Todd at A Tech did an awesome job setting up all the electronics in our basement. We have surround sound and all of the electronics are hidden in a closet with only 1 remote. My husband is techy so he worked with A Tech more than I did but my only request to Todd was that I needed to be able to watch tv and play a dvd without asking for help (I am not techy!) One fabulous remote runs everything and has pictures and an easy menu! They also fixed the internet issue in our house! Very Happy Customers!

    Todd designed a whole house audio system with separate controls for every room with one receiver. He was extremely knowledgeable about speaker placement, size and quality. The end product is amazing. He also recommended a remote that controls everything. This is one of my favorite features. I have also purchased several items for my garage organization that I love. They have everything from home audio, garage organization to kitchen items in the store. Will continue to do business with them as I still need closet organization.

    We have had our Beam Central Vac for over 15 years and absolutely love it! It is convenient, easy to use and best of all - keeps the 'dust' out of the home!. We have had very good service when we needed it, we replaced the motor in the unit once (very reasonable) and had replaced the power brush handle once. Pretty good for a unit that is over 15 years old! The folks at A Tech Easy Living Store are knowledgeable and very willing to assist in any way they can. Highly recommend visiting the store! They have LOTS of items that can make your life easier in your home!

    Great products! Exceptional Service! I was out of idea for what to buy my wife. I stopped at The Easy Living Store and they had all I needed to make her happy. I would have never thought of a self opening garbage can as a great gift idea, but they said she would love it and she did! I was amazed at everything the store had to offer and how helpful the staff was there. I will go back.

    Todd did an awesome job getting all the components into our basement home theater system that my techy husband wanted plus making it easy for me to run with only one remote. We are very happy! The guys that came to install the systems were polite and patient with me and took time to explain how to work it all!

    I have hard wood floors and Beam has a attachment I bought it at the store and it is a God send I simply love it, it is a dry mop on the vac! Amazing! I'm buying a spare mop when I go back! I bought my vac at Van Berkum's in Pella (Where I live) never will I go back there, they sent my head out for as a loaner and gave me some one elses. How is that for doing business! We argued for a long time about this and was getting no where she kept saying that it was my head, I will never go back there to buy anything! I'm 60 minutes from Des Moines and I will take my vac to be serviced at the Easy Living Store anytime!

    wish every home repair could be this easy!!! My central vacuum was having issues, burned out motor, poor connection and an outlet issue. The technician called me a bit early and said he was ahead of schedule, perfect! He was waiting when i got there, diagnosed it in about 10 minutes, I asked how long it would take to get the parts, he said he had them on the truck! I thought maybe they were generic, but when they made the appt they asked what model. He made the right diagnosis and fixed in about 20 minutes! Couldn't really ask for much more!!! The only remote downside was when I called on saturday the lady asked me to call back on monday. Great service and a great experience!

    I live in a 50's home. I had A Tech come and redo my closets for me. They had great ideas, listened to my input and now I have great closets, even though I live in an older home!
