A collaborative closet design process usually begins with a design appointment. Call or fill out a form online to set up the appointment. A designer will come to your home, measure the space, take inventory of your closet and talk to you about what you would like to see in your closet. Only after taking your requirements into account should the design begin.

The designer may design and price your custom closet right then and there or they might set up a follow up appointment to review the design at a later date. This part may vary based on the company or even the individual designer. No matter what, you should be an active part in the design process and vocal about any changes you would like to see. The designers are the closet experts, but you are the “you” expert, and it’s your closet after all!

Once you review and approve the closet design, then you will sign off on the drawings and schedule an installation date. Most installations can be completed in a day, about 2-4 weeks after approving the final closet design. The entire process from design appointment through installation could take as little as a few days, or as long as 4-6 weeks depending on your schedule and the company’s availability at the time.
