Updated on June 21, 2009

California Closet Systems are very expensive but the quality and beauty of their products cannot be compared with any other custom closet organization system on the market today. The elegance and craftsmanship of the company’s products have been remarked upon ever since the company was founded in 1978. Their high quality custom closet organization system can easily be designed and built with each homeowner’s storage needs and space restrictions in mind. The company only uses top of the line materials that meet the high standards of today’s homeowners easily surpassing most of their competitors in the custom closet industry.

California Closet Systems has many collections you can choose from. The Classic Collection is classified as modern with many contemporary and timeless features. Clean lines, beautiful finishes, and the most innovative storage tools available today. The Suite Collections is best described as the company’s luxury and most elegant line of closet built-ins. The architecture is traditional in design but it can be customized according to your specific needs and tastes. The Virtuoso Collection is by far the company’s most modern closet design. The architecture in this is fairly simple in comparison to the other collections but it is the beauty of the materials and its craftsmanship that will be noticed. Visit the California Closet System website to see the different collections and to schedule an in-home consultation.
