7 Critical Differences About Custom Closets



Quality and Dependability on Every Custom Closet We Manufacture and Install

Many buyers end up being disappointed with their custom closet especially if they got a “fantastic price”.

Plus they are reminded of the shortcomings every time they walk in, reach in or open the door to their closet.

We understand that it is pretty easy to come to the conclusion that all custom closets are pretty much the same.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Here are 7 ways that your custom closet can leave you disappointed if they aren’t done right.

  1. It all starts with a design created in a rush or by a person without the proper training. Some of the common mistakes are hanging or shelving areas that are out-of-reach or blocked, doors that are blocked by clothing, shelves that aren’t deep enough to accommodate the desired use and wall outlets that are blocked or barely accessible.

    The biggest disappointment comes when the space doesn’t accommodate the intended purpose. That can happen if the designer doesn’t ask the right questions and take the time to create a well thought out design.

  2. Melamine is a very strong material but the edges and corners can be chipped when it isn’t handled properly. We take extra steps to ensure your product arrives in perfect condition. We aren’t perfect and on that rare occasion when we have damaged a piece, we quickly make a replacement piece at our own manufacturing facility.
    • We also offer beautiful hardwood cabinets. Cherry, Maple and Adler are the most popular but we can work with any wood materials stained or painted to your specifications.
  3. We use full 3/4” material for all our shelves and sides. Some competitors use thinner materials that cost less even though those materials can impact structural integrity and sag or warp.
  4. Crooked or sloped shelves that are due to the installer or designer not taking into account floors that aren’t level and walls that aren’t straight. We can install wall mounted or floor mounted units to properly accommodate your home or office space. We only use our own employees (no sub-contractors) to install your new cabinets so we can ensure that a high level of quality is maintained throughout the installation process.
  5. Drawers that aren’t square or aligned properly won’t slide in and out easily or the bottom fails over time. Our drawers are constructed from 9-ply Baltic Birch boxes using full dovetail construction, full-extension, heavy duty ball bearing drawer slides and inset bottoms. All of these features add to the beauty, convenience and durability of your closet.
  6. Edge banding that isn’t precisely applied or that is too thin won’t stand up to normal use and will come off or start to peel away. We use 2mm thick edge banding which is about 4-times thicker than most of our competitors. This gives superior edge protection and allows us to radius (round) the edges providing a better look and feel.
  7. Accessories that could have made your life easier aren’t recommended or little used accessories are “sold” as great ideas by overly aggressive salespeople. We have a full line of accessories that we offer but none that we would recommend in every situation.

    We will make specific recommendations based on your space and use preferences. We would rather tell you not to put something in than to sell you something that really won’t be that convenient or used that often.

    We provide: valet rods, sliding belt racks, sliding tie racks, jewelry trays, acrylic shelf dividers, hampers, pull-out ironing boards, pull-down upper clothing rods, and many others.

I personally design each custom closet and we have successfully completed over 400 custom closet installations. When you hire my company you can be assured that I will use all of my 15 years of experience to evaluate, measure and design your custom closet to meet your unique storage needs and preferences.

We manufacture each custom closet at our 10,000 sq. ft. custom cabinet and woodworking facility to ensure quality, on time delivery and proper fit and finish. This provides us with a significant advantage over our competitors that don’t have a dedicated facility and are subject to the whims and capabilities of manufacturers.

In the event that we need to change or adjust something, we can easily produce a new part, usually the same day. Our competitors will often have to wait weeks for replacement parts or the installer will be forced to “make it work” on the job.

Whether you want to organize your: walk-in closet, reach-in closet, bedroom, pantry, office or garage storage it is my goal to bring ingenuity and quality to your project.

Your closet should make your life easier by helping you easily store and access all of your clothes and other household items for a lifetime.

I appreciate this opportunity to earn your business and your trust.

Many of my clients have asked us to do additional closets for them and I would love to add you to our list of happy clients.
