Different Brands and Types of Custom Closet Systems

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.

Elfa Closet Systems combine modular shelving with drawers that can easily be adjusted to fit your needs and size restrictions.  Elfa items are made out of epoxy-bonded steel in two main colors, platinum or white.  Elfa also carries optional accents including solid wood shelves made out of either, veneer and melamine.  Elfa is well known for carrying reasonably priced products that can be customized to fit different spaces in your home including an office, closet, pantry, or garage.  You can easily have your entire home organized and functioning properly for a fraction of the price that custom built-in closet companies would charge you. 

Elfa closet systems are sold through The Container Store.  You can find stores near you or shop directly online at their easy to follow website.  The Container Store has trained organization experts that can help you design and install your perfect closet system.  Installation requires an extra fee but keep an eye on their website because they periodically run specials and discounts on closet systems and installation fees.

Ikea Closet Systems

Ikea Closet Systems are the best quality do-it-yourself storage systems on the market today.  Ikea products are durable and inexpensive to purchase.  The systems come in many parts that you build and attach together to get the custom closet system you have always wanted.  Ikea has many options available and accessories that can be added for an even better end result.  All Ikea products require assembly so be ready to put in a little labor in order to get the project completed.  If you are missing any parts or have questions about assembly you can log onto the Ikea website for more information.  You can also check your local store for common parts that are missing or have been misplaced.
