Rare in today's homes, this floor based system creates a built-in look that harks back to the era of craftsman style homes from the post Victorian era Arts & Crafts movement, when high-end, custom, built-in cabinetry with a clean, uncluttered look was a common feature in homes.

Gray is a timeless and practical color and a really great choice for custom closets! An entirely gray closet can look especially interesting when different textures and patterns are used as shown in this closet designed by Lynn.

I was assigned to Lynn who came out to my place within 48 hours, introduced me to her company, my options and we worked through several different designs. Throughout the process she provided me useful feedback that helped me make my final decision. California Closet took over a week to get back to me and I didn't hear back from the contractor. Call me crazy, in these economic times, but I didn't feel the need to get any other quotes. I shared my budget expectations with Lynn since I had done some research with friends and felt like I got a very fair price. I can say enough great things about this experience. Dana G. — Yelp Review

Both units look like they are meant to be in my condo and everyone that sees them compliments them. Vicky M. — Yelp Review
