Custom closets are an investment that can last a lifetime.

When it comes to kids' closets it's especially important to design a system that can transform over time. The needs of a toddler, a kid and a teen are different.

Lois and her husband have their hands full with a 2-year-old son, busy careers and a frequent need to work from home.

As the national marketing director of California Closets, Lois knows a thing or two about organization and design - and she knew that their home office design was not working.

They were thrilled to finally turn their non-functional multi-purpose room into a productive and comfortable home office and guest room.

We interviewed Ginny about the biggest color trends that are influencing our custom closet designs this fall.

Before & After: Classic and Stylish Walk-In Closet

I recently worked with a design-savvy client who is a busy project coordinator for a large media communications company in Toronto.

She wanted to update her poorly designed walk-in closet. The ad hoc storage solutions didn't function well in the narrow space and were an uninspired attempt at space planning.

It was time for a change.
