Demand for organized closets, garages and other home storage areas will rise steadily over the next four years, reaching $10.9 billion in annual sales by 2019. That makes it bigger than wood flooring and windows.

Consumers are trending to tighter living quarters - aging Baby Boomers are downsizing to apartments and town homes, while Millennials have their eyes set on central city loft-style living. This means getting more storage into smaller quarters. Working at home is increasingly common. And the garage is now the new front door.

What business opportunities does this present for custom interior spaces?
