What Do You Want Your New Closet to Look Like?

Close your eyes and imagine your dream closet. Is it a spacious walk-in? Is it compact yet highly functional? Or, is it a freestanding closet that moves with you? All of these are possible (and more) with the correct custom closet design.

Organize Your Items, In Many Ways

Once you’ve purged your closet and imagined what kind of closet you want to have, it’s time to add in the details. We’ve broken down ways to organize your items, according to type of item.


Shoes are often difficult to know how to store and organize; yet if done correctly, they can make a beautiful display. With an array of configurations and systems, from shoe fences to cubbies, you can beautifully store and showcase your shoes. Organization options ensure space for every type of shoe, from high heels to sneakers, sandals and boots. Glass shelving adds a hint of boutique shopping to your closet experience.


There are many ways to organize clothing – you just have to get creative. Keep your socks separated from your shirts with handy drawer and shelf dividers. Pullout shelves create storage flexibility for purses, pants and more. Racks, hangers and poles organize hanging clothes, and pullout hampers and baskets discreetly stow away dirty clothes.

Purses and Accessories

Multifunctional hooks work well in a number of spaces to hang bags, purses, jackets and more. Choose from cleat mount, slat wall and double hooks. This way, you will never lose your purse or coat again.


Sometimes a jewelry tray just isn’t going to cut it. Jewelry drawer dividers showcase your most cherished and valuable accessories, elevating your morning routine to that of shopping in your own personal boutique. Dividers organize every piece of jewelry you own and make it easy and fun to accessorize. Trays and inserts can be configured in various ways, providing tailored storage, while the lining protects your treasured items.
