1. Entryway Hall Trees

When you’re coming home from work, school or soccer practice, you want a place to put your stuff where you won’t forget it. Or maybe you’re in a hurry in the morning and just need to grab your bag and go. We’ve all been there, and that’s why we love having a built-in hall tree right at the front door. You can toe off your shoes and put them in the cubby bench, and always have your favorite jacket or umbrella in the same spot. Having this convenient space designated in your entryway for quick pick-ups and drop-offs will help you feel organized, not hunting for your items.

2. Mudroom Drop Zones

A mudroom area is so handy to have as part of your laundry room, where dirty jerseys and play clothes can easily be thrown in the washer, your gardening shoes can be stored and little paws can be wiped so they don’t track debris through the rest of the house. They also make great drop zones where you can hang pet leashes, organize mail and personalize cubbies for each family member’s daily items like lunch boxes and backpacks. And because many of our homes have a back door leading into this space, they offer the perfect spot for a drop zone that’s tucked away.

3. Pantries

Pantries are one of our favorite storage features and a must-have in a kitchen. Whether you’re cooking a weeknight meal or a feast for a holiday with all your family, they offer a convenient space to keep track of your dry goods and perishables. Hunting for ingredients just got so much easier, plus there is more room for those buy-in-bulk items.

4. Office Nooks

Maybe you work from home or need a study spot for homework? Or maybe you just want a designated space to pay all your bills and update the family calendar. Well, not to worry with an office nook! This space can help keep all your important files, memos and supplies in one spot. Usually, office nooks can be found in hallways or utility rooms and with a variety of different styles, but regardless of location this space will be perfect whether you need to write a check or complete algebra homework.

5. Built-in Bookshelves


We love adding entertainment center options to the living spaces of our home models, and when they include bookshelves, they’re even better! Make a mini library, show off your video game collection, or display family photos and decor. Built-in shelving is such a space saver and a great place to showcase what’s important to you. They can also really tie a room together and create the perfect starting point for your decor.

6. Linen Cabinets

Linen cabinets are a blessing to bathrooms the way pantries are to kitchens. They provide you with more space for towels, washcloths and extra toiletries, all while being tucked away neatly to reduce clutter, and they help you save time when you’re getting ready in the mornings. With our different styles of linen closets, there are also plenty of creative options that will provide this necessary space for your bathroom storage needs.

7. Bathtub Built-Ins

Linen closets aren’t the only way to keep your bathroom organized. Clayton also offers helpful storage solutions like built-in cubbies and shelves above luxurious tubs. These shelves are the best place to keep your regularly used toiletries, like a fresh set of bath linens, and your favorite spa essentials to relax with, like a calming candle your favorite soaps or bath salts.

8. Closet Organizers

Closets can easily become disorganized due to how fast they fill up. Sorting through your everyday wear, your special occasion wardrobe, and keeping space for your accessories and luggage can make for a challenge depending how you space is set up. That’s why many of our homes feature walk-in closets in the primary bedroom with a variety of extra organization built-ins. From cubbies and dressers to drawers and folding counters, your dream closet can now become a reality.
