This patent joins a list of patents for firsts in the closet storage industry and is sure to once again revolutionize the way closet storage is optimized with style and ease!
Our new Premier Racks go one step further than our patented Deluxe Racks. Not only do they pull out on ball-bearing slides, but they then pivot front ninety degress on locking, roller hinges. Voila! Now you can see all the ties or belts as they turn to face you! Our Premier Mirror glides out, pivots to display a full length image, then slides back in alongside the partook for effortless storage. Featuring an over-travel slide, the Premier Rack’s pivot stop prevents the mechanism from bumping into adjacent door or drawer!

Spring has sprung in many parts of the world and climates are changing. The time has come. Time to refresh your closets and organize for the season ahead. Clean it out, lighten up, strip the stuff that weighs you down. Spring is time for re-birth. You and your closets.
Here are a few of our tips to get you and your closets ready for the burgeoning season ahead:
- Don’t get weighed down. OK, some of us always want to loose weight. Think about it, when you do lose the weight, the first thing you will want and deserve is new clothes to celebrate. Make room for them now, mentally and physically. Don’t stay attached to old clothes, they had their day. New days are coming! Make room now! Then you are able to actually see where you want to go with yourself!
- Donate. There are several reputable organizations who will be happy to put your yesterday items to excellent use. Check them out in your area. From donation drop boxes to consignment shoppes, local churches, various shelters or other service organizations, there is always a need you can help fill. That sure beats items you no longer use taking up space in your closet and it feels good to help others.
- Move front & center: If the weather has changed and you won’t be wearing that suit jacked or wool coat for the next few months, move it to the least accessible area of your closet. Switch the seasonal items that make sense now to the forefront of the closet. That includes review of shoes, pocketbooks, gloves, scarfs, hats, drawers, sport clothing etc. It’s all about keeping it easy. Let your closet work for you not the other way around.
- Color Code: You will be amazed at how this little tip will help you pick your outfits, and you will also know immediately what you are in need of. This saves lots of time when prepping, dressing and shopping as you will have a visual to help you pull it all together. And while you are at it, what color are you this spring? Pick up a magazine, add a new splash of you to your couture!
- Be social: Group like items together, skirts, blouses, dresses, dress shirts, slack, ties, belts. Simply stated, this is just a huge help.
- Stay Inspired: After color-coding and socializing your clothes, experiment and mix & match outfits! Once you know what you are looking at, let the fun begin!
- Equip yourself: Buy what you need to support your effort. Use all of the same type of hangers, pick up an extra valet rod or two, maybe a new scarf rack. Again, let the closet work for you. Here are some of the easiest and most popular items that give back ten fold once purchased and installed:
Sidelines Deluxe Valet Rod- Perfect for prepping next day's outfit
Sidelines Deluxe Slide Out Pant Rack
Sidelines Deluxe Slide Out Scarf Rack
Sidelines Double Deluxe Belt & Tie Rack - Twice the storage in half the space. Customize by pairing our Tie, Belt or Scarf Racks, the choice is yours.
Now you are positioned for a great season ahead. Enjoy it, your new closet and an organized new you!

That’s a wrap! We all know that phrase, and what it means. Job completed, satisfaction. Which leads me to think of a wee segment of our population where a little effort goes a long way, who when satisfied even just a bit, bring immense pleasure to the rest of us. Yes, children! We all know how it goes, when they are happy so is everyone around them. When they are not happy, well, we all know how that goes too! There does exist a small indulgence that gives great return. When implemented into a well designed junior closet, playroom etc, Sidelines’ Closetwear Hot Color Basket Wraps brighten the little one’s lives, and the lives of the adults among them, while at the same time adding a touch of fun and flair to everyone’s surroundings.

With Christmas right around the corner, the holiday spirit has begun to fill almost every house we know! It is that time of year to remember what is most important like family, friends and our health. Although somehow those important things seem to get overshadowed by the hustle and bustle of house guests, cleaning, cooking and gift giving. No matter how many times we tell ourselves to take a deep breath, we still allow the stress of the holiday season to overcome us. We always vow to begin our shopping and cleaning earlier than the last but there always seems to be something else leaving us overwhelmed. There are very few people who actually plan ahead and find themselves stress free when the house guests arrive. Wouldn’t that be nice! So with that being said take a deep breath and try something new this year.
With no way to get around the necessary cleaning and shopping lists it does not mean you have to tackle the large projects you have wanted to do since last Thanksgiving! If a closet or pantry is unorganized at the moment, than it has probably been that way for a while. So don’t add to your holiday stress now, instead, take inventory of what you do have and what is not working. Between house guests, hosting parties and holiday decorations, you will be using every inch of your home. This will enable you to really evaluate your organizational needs and put together a list of items that you need and want. For once, maybe you will enjoy the holidays, not get stressed and have a “spring cleaning” project to tackle once the holiday rush is gone. Now look who is planning ahead!
So from all of us at Sidelines we wish you the Happiest of Holidays and the Brightest of New Years! And as you spend your time surrounded by the things that mean the most to you, we leave you with some ideas of those organizational items that mean the most to us. We hope they will come in handy for whatever your next big project may be!
Premier Closet Mirror - Great for any room or closet this mirror fits in a space no wider than a jacket hung on a hanger, our latest mirror’s design takes up less than half the stored width of our original Closet Mirror at a modest two inches! It has over-extension, soft-closing, ball-bearing slides so that it swivels gently in front of adjacent cabinet doors and glides silently back into place for storage. And for your teens, check out our Mirrormax Mirror…they will love it!
Professional Series, Pull-Out Pantry Rack (for 14in deep) – Fitting standard 14-inch deep pantry sections, our adjustable height tall rack glides in and out of 18-inch wide cabinetry on full-extension, soft-closing, ball-bearing steel slides. Five heavy gauge, chrome–plated steel baskets make this a must have storage unit in any kitchen!
Premier Tie or Belt Rack - Ever looked at one of our Deluxe Tie or Belt Racks thinking, “I wish I could get both belts and ties on this,” now you can! With the simple addition of our Double Deluxe Rack hardware plate, any signature Sidelines’ Deluxe Tie, Belt or Valet Rack can be converted to hold double the capacity. Imagine – Twice the collection of ties! Twice the number of belts or any combination thereof! It’s that easy.
Just Remember: In order to create our new Double Deluxe Rack you will need to purchase three products – one deluxe accessory rack, one wall mount accessory rack and the hardware plate!
Signature Closet Baskets / Deluxe Baskets – Probably our favorite storage accessory, these baskets are stylish enough for your closet and sturdy enough for your pantry! Available in different sizes, these baskets are great for organizing anything from clothes and purses to pasta, fruit or even those annoying plastic Tupperware containers! Making things easily accessible for kids they are great for all of their crafts, toys or even after school snack foods! With no end to their storage capability, our baskets do it all and they look good doing it! For an added touch of warmth to your closet, kitchen or pantry, try using our Rattan Baskets.

Do you often wonder if a tornado has just blown through your child’s room? Are you amazed that only one day after their room is cleaned it is a mess again? Are you sick of then cleaning it all up for them? If you answered yes to any of these questions you are not alone! Every parent in America has had those same thoughts. Organization is never easy to come by when you have a house full of children. As adults it can be a challenge keeping ourselves organized on a daily basis, so we should not expect that our children will be any better. Storage is a key player in the game of organization. So if your child’s closet and room is lacking good storage, things will definitely stay messy and hard to find. So don’t waste any time trying to figure out a solution. We have one right here for you!

At Sidelines, we have always been firm believers in creating innovative storage accessories for your home. We understand that everyone in their own way has a busy life. So along with creating new products to help keep you organized, we are always thinking of ways to improve on our existing products. We attempt to make this happen by truly listening to our customers and the feedback they share. It is a great learning process and a way for our product line to continue growing.
Already a popular product in the industry, this is what happened with our Original Closet Mirror. It had always been well received but over time customer feedback helped us realize that there were ways for us to improve it. Our goal was to make the mirror more efficient and after almost a year of brainstorming it is ready! Taking up less than half the stored width of our original Closet Mirror, it is just as beautiful and functional, only better! At a modest two inches wide, this mirror gently glides in and out on soft close slides. It fully extends 1 inch past adjacent cabinet doors and rotates a full 90 degrees in front of them. Its universal left or right mounting hardware makes it is easy to install only requiring four screws. The mirror produces an amazing full body image reflection that will have your clothes begging to be worn. So with much anticipation of its June 2010 arrival, we proudly introduce to you the new Sidelines Premier Closet Mirror!

Ironing! The word itself can immediately make you feel lazy and crazy. After doing load upon load of laundry the last thing that anyone wants to do is iron. It is just one of those tasks that does not rank high on the “to do” list, often times reminding us to purchase more cotton! All jokes aside, the truth is that ironing is just not easy. Most people have large, awkward, stand alone ironing boards that are difficult to store and always take up more room than they need to. Once set up, they are not always sturdy and can be hard to maneuver. For those of you who iron on a regular basis, this cannot be something that you look forward to. So what if you could find an ironing board that looked great and was easy to use? Well, have no fear because Sidelines has just that. Let us offer you two amazing suggestions that will not only save you space, but will save you time as well!
For those of you who enjoy the original concept of the ironing board we present to you Sidelines’ Pressing Perfection™!
Pressing Perfection™ shown in Oil Rubbed Bronze
Fast and easy to use, this space-saving board simply slides out, folds down and pivots away from the partition. The board has adjustable folding support legs that make it easy to get your ironing done fast. For tight spaces and user comfort, the board may be swiveled in its in-use position anywhere from 90 degrees perpendicular, to smaller angles in between and parallel to the partition. Once you are finished, simply fold the board up and slide it back into its stored position. With amazing storage capability Pressing Perfection™ gets the job done without getting in the way!
If you are in need of an ironing board that takes up even less space, then the PressFix™ may be just what you are looking for. Taking things one step further than our Pressing Perfection™, this ironing board is so compact you may even forget it is there. Installed in just 4 minutes, PressFix™ can be mounted to any fixed shelf at least 24 inches wide.
To use it, simply slide it out and unfold the board on its heavy-duty, steel ball bearings. PressFix™ does not need legs for support, so it makes ironing skirts and slacks very easy! The board swivels a full 180 degrees and its pre-set locking positions allow it to rotate with you for optimum comfort. With moves like this your ironing will be done in no time with the PressFix™.
Well, hopefully your impression of ironing has changed a little after seeing some of our innovative designs. Ironing does not have to be a feared household chore anymore, especially if you have the right help. Our goal at Sidelines is to make life easier for you, no matter what room of the house you are in. So hopefully one of these ironing boards will assist you in getting the job done faster so you can move on to more important things. And if not, then at least think of all the space you will be saving with their amazing storage capability. That alone should make you happy. Out of site, out of mind until your next ironing pile is ready! – SC

Trade shows always require an enormous effort in planning and setup just for a few days of meet ‘n’ greets with our existing customers and hopefully with a few new customers as well. Last week’s Closet & Home Organization Expo, held in Long Beach, California, was no exception. But we always thoroughly enjoy this annual event and the opportunity to see friends, colleagues and clients.
Having done this for so long now, setting up the actual booth with our many new products goes quickly. Here’s a shot of our finished exhibit:
Sidelines' EXPO Booth Display
This year we previewed some brand new products coming out later this year for the kitchen and pantry. These are pretty nifty pull-out racks that glide in and out silently on soft-close, ball-bearing mechanisms, so they feel light as air since there’s no effort needed to move them around. Here’s what our “kitchen products” wall display looked like:
Sidelines' Kitchen Products
On the left side you can see our new, tall Pull-Out Pantry Rack. And then our smaller and shorter Pull-Out Adjustable Cabinet Rack is shown in the middle at bottom, under the PressFix ironing board which is folded up, stored away.
We had lots of comments on these new items, most of which leaned towards the “this is so long overdue for the industry” type sentiments. We think so too! These will be available later in the year. (Watch this space for a future release date on these.) They are currently available for standard depth kitchen cabinetry (greater than 19” deep) in several widths and all with adjustable height ranges.
A couple of the other big previews we showed off at EXPO was on our “closet products” wall. We unveiled two new sliding mirror products for mounting on closet section side panels. Here’s the small one that’s designed as a three-panel model:
3-Way Mirror and Deluxe Double Rack
This one is only two feet tall, and the side mirrors hinge in over the main mirror for easy storage. You can also see our new Deluxe Double Rack mounted above the mirror in this photo. The DDR is actually a hardware plate added to our existing Deluxe Tie, Belt or Valet Rack units so that you can double the amount of rack storage (of your choice). You can use two tie racks, or belt racks, or one of each on either side of this new hardware plate.
We’ll have more on all these new products as they become available. There were several more items unveiled at the show. Keep checking back for more news from the organization front!
