Whether it's an existing home remodeling project, or new home construction, homeowners agree on their priorities – they want smarter storage solutions in their homes, not larger floor plans.

“The idea is to maximize every inch of space in the home, said Jill Waage, editorial director for Better Homes and Gardens magazine. According to a recent survey conducted by Better Homes and Gardens published by Waage, 79 percent of consumers ranked walk-in closets to be the second most desired living space in their next home. The study also revealed seven hot spots that home buyers are focusing on. Among their top choices were walk-in closets, separate laundry rooms and efficient home offices or workspaces.

One popular storage system that fits the needs of today's home buyer is freedomRail home storage, manufactured by SCHULTE.

  • offers the quality and details of a custom-built closet.
  • provides flexibility because it is truly adjustable. Components can be moved up, down and side to side as storage needs change.
  • offers storage solutions for all areas of the home.

“Organization is not about your home. It's about your life, less stress and more time with loved ones,” said Amanda LeBlanc, professional organizer and freedomRail spokesperson. “And adjustable home storage is key for future uses. Our lives are not ‘fixed,' so why have fixed shelving that may not work six months down the road?”
