Get Organized with Closet Works


If your New Year’s resolution to get organized is going nowhere fast, it may be time to call in an expert such as Closet Works.

Closet Works will celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2012 with locations in the Merchandise Mart and on Clybourn Avenue in Chicago.

“We provide custom solutions for closets, home office, pantry, garage and anywhere in the home where you need organization,” explains the company’s president Mike Carson.

According to Carson, most closets waste space by only using horizontal space. “A shelf and a rod hung at one height means that everything gets piled onto the top shelf,” Carson says, citing the inefficiencies that are created by hanging garments of different lengths together. “Closet organization creates more room by taking advantage of those unused vertical areas.”

Space-making features could include:

• Drawers made for clothing, socks and even jewelry, which provide extra storage (not to mention freeing up valuable bedroom real estate by eliminating the need for freestanding dressers)
• Laundry baskets for laundry and dry cleaning
• Pullout tie and belt racks, ironing boards, valets and slacks racks
• Stand-alone islands
• Crown molding, raised panel doors, LED accent lighting and other decorative accents

When working with a company like Closet Works, the first step is usually an on-site consultation with a designer who will work with the client to understand their space, requirements and other preferences.



Closet Works offers an on-site consultation for free, and they stand by their design with a 90-day, 110% money back guarantee.

They offer 28 different material choices with customizable hardware and moldings, and Closet Works manufactures its cabinetry locally, so the entire design process typically takes 1–2 weeks from start to finish, including the one-day installation. “We’re the space planning experts,” says owner, Mike Carson. “You owe it to yourself to get an estimate from us.”
