Tim's Reviews


I can't say enough about our experience with Closet Works and, in particular, our amazing closet designer Tim Higbee. We contacted closet works about renovating the closets in our upstairs bedrooms. This was not an easy project because the ceiling in the bedrooms has dormers so it is very steeply pitched, which meant that the closets were less than functional to say the least. At the time Tim came to give us an estimate on the project, all three closets were completely filled (just with clothes for my husband and me, which was no longer an option with a baby on the way). Tim was prompt, pleasant and professional. We had a proposal from him in less than a week (he said it might take a little longer because of the complexity of the project). All I can say is Tim Higbee is a closet magician- he came up with a system for the closets that I would never have been able to even imagine and the price estimate was more than fair (approx $1,200.00 less than other, far less creative proposals). Needless to say, we moved forward with the project and are now the proud owners of three beautifully designed closets. The best part is that we now have one completely empty closet because of the solutions that Tim provided. I would not hesitate to use them again. Anastasia P. — Yelp Review

Tim Higbee with Closet Works is awesome!!! Tim worked with me over a couple of months to help me design a master walk-in closet. Even though I called a couple different times with changes, he had an incredible amount of patience, came over, and worked through the details. Also, I can't begin to detail every way the closets are beautiful, well planned out, much higher quality than I expected. If you are in need of an office or closet designer, Tim Higbee is definitely your man. Fraya L. — Yelp Review

I worked with Tim Higbee (he impressed me enough with the first project to use him for the much larger second project) who is about a professional designer as they come. Not only does Tim have a good eye for design, he is equally practical and will not guide you into anything that you're not 100% sure about. We had a full walk in closet (with island) a laundry room, two other bedroom closets and an office/extra bedroom with a Murphy bed. I can honest say that with all the vendors we had to deal with during our home renovation, Tim and Closet Works were by far the most professional, reliable and easiest to deal with and I think you get incredible value for the cost. I give these guys the gold seal of approval. Stephen K. — Yelp Review

I contacted Closet Works about designing an office/dressing area for my daughters' shared bedroom. Tim Higbee came to consult with me, and I was extremely impressed with his competence and design knowledge. He came back with a fantastic design, and even worked with me to lower the price. I visited the Closet Works showroom and was impressed with the work they do and their range of design ideas and finishes. Ultimately, I decided not to move forward with the project for personal reasons, but I wouldn't hesitate to call on Tim for help with any design project. Sarah M. — Yelp Review

I can't rave enough about Tim Higbee at ClosetWorks on Clybourn. We have done 4 closet projects with him and he is a fabulous designer. Each one has been unique, beautifully configured and easy to use. He brings to every dialogue a desire to exceed your expectations - and he delivers! No challenge is too big for him. I would recommend using him for any of your closet work and media centers. He copied the look of the Miller House wall unit into our home from only a picture. All of his work is extremely detailed and accurate. I seek new opportunities to work with him because he is innovative, realistic and extremely creative. Brenda T. — Yelp Review
