Explores the Important Relationship Between Storage and Design

Publish Date: Monday, January 18, 2016

Ocala, Fla. — ClosetMaid has created a brand new AIA/CES and IDCEC continuing education course for architects and interior designers. The one-credit-hour course, titled “Maximizing Space, Sustainability, Value and Aesthetics with Manufactured Storage Systems,” is presented in streaming HD video and can be viewed at the link below:

The one-credit-hour course is available free of charge for all building and design professionals. Viewers can download a PDF Study Guide to accompany the streaming video. The AIA/CES version is designed for architects and the IDCEC version for interior designers.

Presented by Scott Davis, Vice President of Product Development and Marketing at ClosetMaid, the course is both educational and entertaining for those interested in the value and aesthetics of manufactured storage systems.

The course explores the problem of today’s “clutter crisis” and how better storage design is the solution. It defines relationships between ample and appropriate storage, and explains how efficient interior designs can improve the quality of life for building occupants. Professionals will learn about the different materials used in storage systems and benefits of manufactured storage systems over built-in-place alternatives in residential and non-residential applications.

The new ClosetMaid course is available at and is also available on Viewers who pass the quiz will receive either AIA/CES credit or IDCEC credit and a Certificate of Completion from The Continuing Architect.
