Closet Design Solutions From Any Angle


A Walk-In closet space is fun for any closet designer to design.  It's also fun for any client to have as a place to call "home" for their wardrobe.

And when the space is square or rectangle with a standard eight or nine foot ceiling and few or no obstacles - all the better.

But angles make things more complicated because angles typically equal more difficult accessibility.

Think about the attic in your grandparents home. You know, the one you used to love to sneak up to and play hide and seek in? They probably had lots of boxes shoved in to the corners that you could hide behind. Which is fun.

But having to access items on a daily basis in a location like that can be "back-aching" and frustrating. You wouldn't want to have to go looking for wardrobe favorites on a daily basis that were stored like that.

So what to do if you have a closet space that has angled ceilings?

Closet Works designer Zena Hallman created a great solution for a Chicago area client by properly designing shelves and hanging into the space while allowing proper access. She used her excellent space planning skills and years of experience to really maximize the space for her client. And she'd be happy to do the same for yours!

Home Office Design Tips


It's common for people to work from both their work office and their home office.....and just about anywhere else they can get a cup of coffee and an internet connection.

And with more and more homes being equipped with space to allow at least one person to work, we thought we'd share some insights on home office space.

It's space that needs to be effectively designed and effeciently utilized. Doing a great job at your job is more than just making sure your files are organized. There are proven psychological benefits that lead to productivity increases when your work space works for you.

So if you'll allow us the privilege of working with you on your work space - we promise you'll get more done and be all the happier for it.

 It takes a great deal of thought to figure out what your work pattern is and how things can flow, as well as what options you have for making that work. Our team has lots of experience helping people make those kinds of decisions, and we'd love to help you too!

Good For Closets = Great For Clients


At Closet Works, we've got a commitment to quality and customer experience that runs deep.

We take our design work seriously, our installations methodically and our client relationships with a smile and "can do" attitude.

And in recent weeks, we've received some industry recognition that supports our efforts and commitment. 

The Association of Closet and Storage Profesionals (ACSP) recently initiated a certification program to recognize designers in our industry who have years of experience designing custom storage solutions.  And we had two team members receive their first level certification. Designer Teri Magee and president Mike Carson are now officially "Registered Storage Designers". We're so proud!

We're also rather proud of our awards from The Better Business Bureau and Angie's List.

We've had "zero" complaints on one end and "super star service" on the other. What that means for our clients is that you're covered from beginning to end and beyond.  Basically, for the life of your closet system. Nothing like peace of mind to go along with your newly organized life.


And there's even more!

Closet Works designers Tim Higbee, Sue Tinker and Lynn Casanova won the equivalent of our industries' Oscar's by bringing home Top Shelf Design Awards for projects they designed for clients in the past year.


The picture to the left is for a first place win by Sue Tinker of a "Dream Closet" that Sue, herself, said she wouldn't mind calling home.





Tim Higbee created an effective workspace in a clients condo that not only utilized space effectively and beautifully, but allowed for space for the clients bobble head collection (see - we cover all the bases!).

And designer Lynn Casanova created maximum storage in a basement that had lots of difficult design parameters and client demands in order to make it all work well together.
