Design Consultant - Collaboration

Our Process

You Dream It, We Design and Build It

Our California Closets Essentials are the finishing touch, but it starts with the closet itself. Our process prioritizes consultation, collaboration, construction, and white-glove installation to make your dream closet a reality.


Designer Consults with Customer

Step 1 - Consultation

Your custom closet starts with a free in-home consultation with one of our expert design consultants to assess your vision, space, needs, and budget. Your designer will measure your space and take inventory of your belongings. The consultation takes about an hour, but we will stay as long as necessary.

Step 2 - Collaboration

Equipped with your requirements, your designer will create a 3D virtual model of your future closet so you can see exactly how it will look and function in your space. Together, you and your designer will make changes until the final design is exactly as you want it and customized with the lighting, finishes, and accessories of your choice.

Step 3 - Construction

Once complete, your custom design is sent to one of our local manufacturing centers, where we source the finest materials from North America and Europe to create your system’s components. Every system is constructed with premium, sustainable materials and innovative accents to meet the highest quality of standards, backed by a lifetime guarantee.

Step 4 - Installation

Your new closet will be professionally installed with white-glove service on a timeline that works for you. Our installers will treat your home as their own, leaving it spotless. Before starting, they’ll protect your walls and floors. Upon completion, they’ll ensure your new system is perfectly clean and ready for use.
