Designing and installing a custom closet means creating a personalized, functional and beautiful closet solution that meets the specific needs and preferences of the homeowner. It typically involves:

Initial Consultation and Assessment. One of our professional designers will visit the space and assess the homeowner’s storage needs and preferences. They will also take measurements of the area and consider any existing architectural features or constraints. 

Measurements and Layout Planning: This will include a layout of the space, including the placement of shelves, rods, drawers, and other storage solutions. The designer will also consider existing architectural features such as electrical outlets, light switches, or windows.
