Closet Works stands behind its products and workmanship with a stronger guarantee than any other closet organizer company in the USA. We offer a limited lifetime warranty on all products we manufacture and install. We also offer an unequalled design guarantee that allows you to make adjustments to existing shelving and hanging configurations for up to 90 days after installation at no charge. We have over 30 years of experience designing closets in the Chicago area, and we're still going strong. Our employees love what they do and can't wait to share the gift of organization with you.
If you are considering installing closets yourself, it is important that you keep in mind the cost of purchasing the product, hauling components home and installing the product. Your time is valuable, and often the money that you saved to do-it-yourself is generally not nearly enough to justify your frustrations. If you measure incorrectly, you are generally stuck with something you may not be able to use. Closet Works handles the entire project for you — from measuring and design, to manufacturing and professional installation. Our products and installations are guaranteed. Additionally, we only use 3/4" thick furniture grade materials on our closets. Many home improvement stores sell the lower cost 1/2" thick materials which can more easily warp.
For those who are skilled at carpentry and determined to install their own closet system, you can purchase one of our high quality closets from our e-commerce website, www.closets.com. Each customer is responsible for their own measuring if you go this route, and custom closets are not returnable. All e-commerce products include printed assembly instructions and shipping is free within the continental United States (Alaska and Hawaii not included).
Many of our closet systems do include doors for the individual sections, but we do not sell a large door for the outside of your closet. If you are seeking this type of service, we have companies that we will happily recommend to you.
We serve the entire Chicago metro area, including Southeastern Wisconsin, Harbor Country Michigan, and Northwestern Indiana. If you think you may not be included in our service area, just give us a call and we will let you know. If you are outside of the Chicago metro area, we can refer you to one of our national network of dealers who sell Closet Works manufactured systems throughout the continental United States and Canada.
Absolutely — we stand behind our work! Closet Works offers a limited lifetime warranty on the products we manufacture and install. We also offer an unprecedented design guarantee that allows Closet Works customers to make minor design changes for up to 90 days after your installation at no charge.

Yes we do. See your designer for details.
