When it comes to designing beautiful, functional spaces, the design team at California Closets can do it all.

They rounded up eight of their favorite spaces and gave us a behind-the-scenes peek at how they came together.

  • All quotes are from the project’s designer. 

Want to learn more about how these closets are made? We took a tour of the entire production process.


(1) A bedroom turned into a study

Designer: Morgan Haynie
The deets: System in “Ivory” with “Shagreen Pebble” leather door and drawer inserts.
The strategy: “Twin boys share this room, so it needed to be functional as a study and a bedroom. High-end finishes give it a sophisticated look, but we worked with the moldings and curved walls that are part of this older home’s character.”

(2) A showroom-quality walk-in

Designer: Mariel Taveras
The deets: Walk-in, floor-to-ceiling system with wardrobe lifts, lighting, glass countertop
The strategy: “The client wanted to keep the original layout to avoid redoing all the flooring, but I showed her how much potential the space would have with a new layout. The goal was to maximize hanging space.”

(3) A sneakerhead’s dream shoe display

Designer: Claire Williams
The deets: Shoe Display System in “Shadow Black” with black aluminum frame glass doors and puck lighting.
The strategy: “This client has an incredible sneaker collection and needed a creative solution to store and display them in a bonus room. They wanted a mix of adjustable shelving to maximize storage with design elements to showcase his favorites.”

(4) A bonus room-turned-bedroom

Designer: Julie Bastien
The deets: Floor-to-ceiling built-in wardrobe in “Cashmere.”
The strategy: “The client wanted to transform a bonus room into a fifth bedroom by adding storage. We had to find a good balance so it felt like a bedroom, not a closet.”

(5) A maximized dormer closet

Designer: Jennifer Brickman
The deets: Walk-in System in “Adriatic Mist” with “Dark Oil Rubbed Bronze” accessories.
The strategy: “The customer has a retro style, so we used different finishes and dinosaur fossil wallpaper to make this cohesive but not basic. The space was difficult because it was long, narrow and had low ceilings.”

(6) A wall bed in a home office

Designer: Erin Kelly
The deets: Queen wall bed with aluminum frame and specialty glass flip-up doors.
The strategy: The client was downsizing but needed space for her kids when they visit. This room is right off the living room, so she needed a discreet bedding option that would still allow the space to function as an office.

(7) A uniquely-shaped walk-in

Designer: Renee Haywood
The deets: Walk-in System in “Linen” with gold hardware and mirror-framed doors.
The strategy: “This space had angled walls and sloped ceilings, so we placed drawers and cabinets on them in order to save straight walls for hanging.”

(8) A sleek closet with security measures

Designer: Shelley Carpenter
The deets: Walk-in system in “Shadow Black” with gold hardware, lighting and glass-framed doors.
The strategy: “Since the room has tall ceilings, we maximized the height to display handbags, and artwork with motion-activated lights. We also designed around an existing safe and added locking drawers with jewelry inserts.”
