A Dream Closet for a Dream Home: Gurjeet & Justin’s Story

What They Wanted

Gurjeet and Justin Sangha had built “one too many homes” over the course of their marriage. And with four children in tow, they were ready to settle down in their dream home—one with a spacious custom closet for Gurjeet.

When it came to space, the couple had plenty—16 x 16 feet, to be exact. The real challenge lay in tackling all that room tastefully. And for that, they wanted an expert eye.

I wanted Gurjeet to have a closet she could enjoy for years to come. I’ve always associated California Closets with [being] the Rolls-Royce of closets. I just knew that if we didn’t do this right the first time, we’d regret it.

How we did it

Justin and Gurjeet shared their hopes for a space that would “wow” with California Closets Vancouver design consultant Zainub Malik, who struck Justin with her energy and precision, and Gurjeet with her ready hugs.

In order to achieve a luxe look, the couple opted for features that felt ornate, including satin glass, numerous display cases, and even crystal-encrusted handles. Four hampers keep the closet looking nice and neat—a must, given the foot traffic.

When Zainub came out, we connected right away. She cared about what we wanted. I have a lot of Indian clothing and a lot of jewelry, and she understood that I needed a place for all of that.

I do a lot in my closet. The girls come in and try on all of my clothes. I do yoga in my closet. When my friends come over, we go to the closet to hang out and drink wine.

Final Result

Gurjeet’s closet is now a coveted retreat, and it’s made everyday life easier. For example, she no longer has to rotate seasonal clothing items in and out. Instead, everything can simply stay put. In Justin and Gurjeet’s eyes, the closet is an accomplishment they can both be proud of and a space that brings lasting value to their home.

We were married on my 23rd birthday, and we started off with nothing. I’m always striving for more, but this closet gives me a sense of, Hey, we’ve made it.
