“In the latest issue of the Houston Press, on stands now, Nicholas L. Hall meticulously examines and enjoys the customized burgers at The Burger Guys. “Take, for example, the Sonoma. A purist's burger, it's the type of classic, straightforward offering that could be easily overlooked on a menu such as this. For all the exotic allure of the other offerings, it's very tough to trump the impeccable put-together-ness of this burger. Everything works exactly as it should, like some sort of golden ratio of burger perfection," he writes about the burger topped with peppery arugula, avocado, bacon and cheddar.”
Gourmet/Custom Burger vs. Simple/Franchise Burger
Like burgers joints, closet companies come in all shapes and sizes.  You have your franchise burger – McDonalds – standard, ordinary, fast-food, lackluster, bland, but with name recognition.  Then, you have your local, REAL burger guys – passionate about their meat and their toppings.  Like in the burger industry, an independent closet company is owned by people who live in the community and are committed to investing in its future.  Local business owners and employees often possess a level of expertise and a passion for the product they sell that is unmatched by employees and managers of national chains.  They tend to have a greater interest in getting to know their customers – who are after all, also their neighbors.  Simply put, local owners take a special pride in their trade.  Buying local from locally–owned and operated independent businesses and not from big box stores, chains and franchises keeps more money circulating in our community.  Franchises move their profits to another state or locality via royalties paid by the franchise to their corporate office.  A marketplace of small local businesses helps to ensure more innovation and competition and lower prices over the long term.
When you are choosing your closet company – consider these factors.  You CAN get a gourmet-type burger from McDonalds or Jack in the Box, but it is an attempt at “gourmet” – not the REAL customized, authentic burger perfection.  A higher- quality, better burger is as diverse and nuanced as a fine wine.  The variations of burger combinations and flavor pairings, creative inspiration and the subconscious delight are what make a true gourmet burger. So, when you are in the market for a custom-designed closet -look at the franchises – what they have to offer, then buy at your local, independent business such as Texas Custom Closets.  You will be glad that you did! A “gourmet, customized” closet suited to YOU will allow you to feel more in control as you can create your combination of “condiments, cheeses, toppings and even buns”. Why go franchise when you can go customized?  Don’t settle for a “McDonald’s” closet when you can get one from ‘The Burger Guys”.  They may not be as well known, but they are owned and operated by people who have a vested interest in the success of your neighborhood.  “At their best, Burger Guys' burgers live in both worlds — the studiousness of sandwich construction, the atavistic thrill of a burger.”  You two can have both worlds – the passionate design of a closet custom designed for you AND an atavistic thrill of a truly organized closet – buy local, buy customized - call Texas Custom Closets today!
 
 
Did you know - "When your environment is cluttered, the chaos restricts your ability to focus. The clutter also limits your brain’s ability to process information. Clutter makes you distracted and unable to process information as well as you do in an uncluttered, organized, and serene environment," states author Erin Doland. "The clutter competes for your attention in the same way a toddler might stand next to you annoyingly repeating, “candy, candy, candy, candy, I want candy, candy, candy, candy, candy, candy, candy, candy, candy, candy …” Even though you might be able to focus a little, you’re still aware that a screaming toddler is also vying for your attention. The annoyance also wears down your mental resources and you’re more likely to become frustrated." Being organized is extremely important in having a stress free life. There are many advantages to being organized that include reduced stress, saving time, and working more efficiently.  Being organized will help you to reach your goals in life and become an extremely successful person. Without organization your life will be chaotic and your days will be full of stress from day to day. Make your life easier for yourself by taking some time to get organized!  

The kitchen inevitably is like "mission control" in the home. People tend to congregate in the kitchen. Guess what else congregates in the kitchen? It is time to "Purge, Evaluate and Organize."  It is better to take a little extra time to get your kitchen organized then to rush through it. You will enjoy your "new" kitchen more if you take the time needed. Replacing your old kitchen cabinets is an extensive home improvement project that adds tremendous value to your home. Kitchen cabinets are an important element to your home.  One of the vexations of modern mass merchandising, even in the better home improvement stores, is finding a real person who genuinely knows the answer to your question, from first-hand experience. At Texas Custom Closets, you can "ask the expert" when we are installing our own work. You can talk to us about your needs. We may not have the "lights, bells, and whistles" you get in a larger store, but you'll get a free estimate, and a working relationship with a person experienced in his field.

Every busy family household eventually finds itself with kitchen cabinets and pantries filled with clutter. Not only does the clutter make it difficult to find items that are needed on a daily basis, it also contributes to a drain on the family budget by spurring the expensive habit of buying items that are already in the house, but covered and hidden by the clutter.  You NEED an organized kitchen!

One of the most disorganized places in the home is the master bedroom closet.  Imagine how nice it would be to have a neatly organized closet where everything had its own place. You would always know where to look to find what you needed. Instead of spending 20 minutes digging around in your cluttered closet looking for something to wear, you could find the same outfit in a matter of a few seconds in a nicely organized closet.  Aside from the time savings, having an organized closet can also bring a sense of tranquility. Opening a closet and finding a big cluttered mess can cause stress. Even when the closet door is closed you still know in the back of your mind that the mess is in there, so it can subconsciously cause you to feel stressed and guilty.  A clean closet with the perfect closet organizer, however, can actually be relaxing to look at. When you open the door to the closet you don't get that same sinking feeling, and when the door is closed you know that there is no clutter lurking behind it. Organizing your closet will certainly give you additional space, but it was also make for a visually appealing end result. You NEED an organized closet!
