One of the most unique aspects of California Closets -- outside of our top-notch designers, our fast and friendly installers, and the wide variety of high quality products to choose from -- is the showroom experience. We understand the need to "try before you buy," and our showrooms provide a place where you can put your hands on our products and get a feel for how they can work for you.
The West Hartford Showroom
Located right in downtown West Hartford Center, this showroom is like a walk-in boutique. With about a dozen displays in the 1200 square feet, the showroom is where some of California Closets’ most sophisticated design concepts come to life — and where showroom associates can walk you through them and answer any questions you might have about your own custom storage needs.
Come see us at 997 Farmington Ave. We serve all of Hartford, Litchfield, Tolland and Windham counties, plus Western Massachusetts.

Storage Spotlight: Basement Storage Room Becomes a Sophisticated Wine Cellar
One of our talented design consultants, Ellen Gundersen, transformed a once-cluttered storage room into a gorgeous wine bar and organized storage room! Ellen also left room for her client’s wine fridge and designed in great countertop space above it, with more cubby wine storage above that. The transformed room is design in a Roman Walnut finish and is accented with Umbrian Oak wine “x” inserts, stainless steel slide-out wine racks and hardware, and light rattan baskets.
For before-and-after pictures and more detail about the project, see our post on the Design of the Month Winner.
At California Closets - Glastonbury, we believe that it's important to support our local community. For example, we've provided a free closet solution to a school for underprivileged children called Pathways for Children. Customers can also choose to have us donate 10% of their purchase price to Pathways.
