Tailored Living featuring PremierGarage does not provide generic solutions or believe in a one-size-fits-all philosophy. Instead, according to Mindy Bledsoe, who owns the Nashville location with husband Tim, it’s a personal design process that takes place by collaborating with clients, listening to their wants and needs, and working within their budgets to design the space that’s right for them.
“It's really a fun process to go through, and we don't shortcut that in the interest of trying to make a sale; it's more about helping someone's vision come to light,” she says.
Having been a designer for California Closets for 13 years and with an extensive background in design, Mindy and fellow designer Jeni Burnside, along with Tim, who handles the flooring components and the day-to-day business operations, can help bring people’s ideas to fruition. They use 3D design software to show clients a rendering of what the space will look like upon completion, and once approved, their in-house employees handle all the installations.
While they can design any room in a house, one of their popular services is turning garages into man caves. Tailored Living utilizes this extra room in the house to design masculine spaces. Instead of their belongings being stored away in boxes, the men in the family can actually interact with and enjoy them in an organized layout.
“Men tend to not have a lot of areas of the home that reflect their personalities and their identity,” Mindy says. “It gives them their own space, whether they are sportsmen and need to be able to organize that kind of stuff, or if they like to tinker on cars or even want to display their hubcap collections, they can do that. They can put in a Kegerator and have the guys over to watch a ball game.”
