According to designers and builders of custom shelving and storage units, [a] project works because [the client] started with the most important requirement: an honest assessment of [his or her] unique needs.

"Figure out exactly what it is you need to store," says Antonio Devon Thibeault, a Medford-based builder who does business as the Underground Carpenter. He says it is "not what you want to store it in but what you need to store" that is key to getting the best results.

A good carpenter, designer, or contractor, Thibeault says, can suggest options—closed cabinets or open shelving, small or narrow spaces for tiny objects, or variable shelves for a growing collection—but only you know what you have and what you need to put away.
