How to Choose Your Wood Closet System

Posted by: Storganization Staff Tags: Home Organization, Tips, DIY

You’re ready for a new closet system, and you know you want wood. How do you narrow down all the choices to get to your ideal option? 

Ask yourself the following questions: What is my top concern? Do I have a limited budget? Do I want a variety of finishes and accessories to really customize my closet? Do I want to complete my project this weekend? Your answers will lead you to the best ClosetMaid wood closet system for you.

Top Concern: Budget

If cost is the most important factor for you when it comes to a wood closet system, Modular Closets may be your best bet. The laminated wood system comes in two finishes – taupe and white – and its components can be mixed and matched for a personalized closet or storage area. 

The system features two door styles, a shoe unit, a drawer unit, a shelf unit and a divided unit. Assembly is fairly easy for the DIYer, so you can save money by not hiring someone to build your Modular Closet for you.

Top Concern: Options

For a custom-look closet with designer finishes, multiple drawer front styles and organizational accessories, like jewelry trays and wire baskets, you’ll likely want to choose SuiteSymphony or SpaceCreations.

SuiteSymphony has up to four finishes: Pure White, Natural Gray, Graphite Gray and Midnight Brown. You can also match your style with your drawer and door fronts. Organize your fashion accessories with a telescoping tie and belt rack (it’s perfect for necklaces, too) and a velvet-lined jewelry tray.

SpaceCreations, our premium DIY collection, lets you design the closet of your dreams for a fraction of the cost of a custom solution. Select from three drawer styles, three handle styles and four finishes – three upgraded melamine finishes (Bright White, Cool Gray and Dark Java) and a laminate finish in Classic White. Organize everything in your wardrobe with a jewelry tray, drawer dividers, wire baskets.

Both closet systems offer pre-selected kits if you would rather not design every aspect of your storage project yourself.

Style+, Impressions, Selectives and Brightwood are all available near you, so you don’t have to wait for products to be shipped to you. You can complete a closet makeover in a weekend – from purchase to final project!
