From Dreary to Dreamy: Custom Closet Perfection (with Photos!)


This closet space went from Fab to Fabulous! The customer had a current plain, no frills closet in this space overlooking her gorgeous master bath. She asked that it go from Home Depot to her own personal boutique. After working with her over the years on the rest of her home, we knew what she was going for. It was a challenge, as there were a variety of angles and obstacles to deal with, we had to use every inch to our advantage to make this the perfect custom closet for her space and needs. We had to accommodate for 100+ shoes, numerous designer handbags, sports wear to formal wear, a floor safe and a vanity area. All of this and while still being practical.

We did a variety of different and difficult design features for this custom closet. We used the different ceiling heights to our advantage, by accenting them with unique crown molding features and countertops. We used clear glass inserts to give it a clean look, while keeping the open feel of the closet. The lines and detail in each area show the craftsmanship of a beautifully finished room.

Our design featured the following custom details. The island not only hosts drawers for jewelry and garments, but we also built a beautiful end piece for all the gorgeous belts and accent pieces. The shoe area wraps around a corner with ceiling height differences. We took advantage of one corner and added shoe rollouts so the shoes can be easily accessed. Shelving above the hang areas of the closet system allows the customer to not only display her designer pieces, but also serves as a dual purpose of keeping these pieces with the articles of clothing they coordinate with. We added doors to an upper corner piece, and with the help of a 180 degree hinge, the door easily flips all the way open to access the corner. We built a custom cabinet especially for a large safe, so that it can be hidden. My favorite feature is that all of the custom handles and knobs coordinate with the light fixtures, valances and bath accessories in the bath below bringing it all together - thanks to the interior designer. No detail went unnoticed.

Even though you enter through an absolutely gorgeous master bath, as you wind up the spiral staircase and enter the custom closet, words can not express how absolutely breath taking this personal boutique is. It was a long haul and a very trying space, and the end result was well worth it.

People Are Saying the Nicest Things about Us!


At Closet Works we love nothing more than giving our customers a memorable experience and an exceptional organizational system. That is why it motivates us, especially during these long, dragging winter months, to see such heartwarming compliments as the one Anthony has given us below. Thank you Anthony and thank you to all our customers! We love you!!

Custom closet system

“Our closets are so nice I could actually live in there, so maybe I should just stay in there. But I'm coming out long enough just to review them.

I was really against spending the extra money because we had already paid for our closets with our new house. Problem was that the new closets were going to suck and there was no way to get a credit on that. So we worked with our salesperson and came up to a fair quote for doing all of our closet and storage space. We had a total of 7 spaces organized by Closet Works. There were 4 closets, one kitchen pantry, one laundry room and my Man Storage Space.

The Closet Works crew moved fast and got everything installed quickly. They even had to cut a hole for the gas line for our dryer and it still looked neat. As a guy I really do not care about how a closet looks. I just care if I can hang my clothes and hide [stuff] in there when company comes over. I really hate it when company opens up a closet to look inside. Hello that is not part of the tour...get out of the closet! Ha!

My Man Storage Space is less Man and more what kind of crap my wife can throw in there. Every time I look in that closet there is more stuff unrelated to my life. Like wrapping paper, Christmas stuff, luggage (not mine), etc...

Everything is really nice. Not only did they add in places to hang clothes but also added shelves for folded clothes, hooks for hats, drawers to store stuff like jewelry. They created more space for us to store more crap...I mean our valuable things we wear. Ha!

So if you are moving into a new place or building a place I would give them a call and get a free quote. Our [designer] was nice enough to actually come out to our new construction and look at our blueprints. She even took measurements before presenting us with a detailed quote. Everything was handled very professional and installed in a timely manner. Once we had a date set they showed up on time and rocked the build out.

Now I just need to figure out how to reclaim my Man Closet. I am thinking about installing a bed in there with a TV. Maybe I should call [Closet Works] and see if they have one of those pull down wall cots like in a ship or something. See I am going back into the closet one way or another.”
