The Closet Works Closet Cabinetry Difference: Manufacturing American Closet Cabinets that Outperform the Competition!

A Local Business with a 35+ Year Track Record Building Quality Chicago Closets

Highest Quality Materials for All Closet Cabinets: The Best Closet Organization Systems Come From Closet Works!

  • Safer — All of the materials used at Closet Works meet or exceed the emissions standards set forth by the California Air Resource Board and are made from safe, ultra-low emission materials.
  • Better Materials Means Better Structural Integrity — Closet Works uses M-2 industrial grade 3/4" thick thermally-fused laminate (TFL) material — furniture grade — on all our walk in closets and other organization system laminate components (even for backer board). Many competitor closet organizer companies use melamine over a 5/8" lower quality particleboard. Over time, the thinner materials are more likely to bend, sag and distort their shape.
  • Eco-Friendly:

Quality American Closets — Attention to Details and Outstanding Closet Cabinetry Craftsmanship

  • In-House Manufacturing and State of the Art Machinery — Closet Works is proud to be a "made in the USA" American Closet organizer company! We manufacture all of our own closet systems locally in our 60,000 sq. ft. Elmhurst IL state-of-the-art production facility. Our craftsmen go to great lengths to assure the product is built to exact specifications. We want to make sure that you, as the customer, are as happy with the finished product as we are.
  • Edge banding on ALL exposed sides — Unlike competitors, Closet Works edge bands all exposed edges of the system including the bottom for a clean and finished look. Most competitors do not provide edge banding to the bottom of vertical panels. Omitting this important step can allow sweaters and other clothing to snag on the rough bottom edge.
  • Closet Shelving — For fixed shelves, Closet Works uses quick-fit through-anchor construction that allows for continuous shelving at the same height. We use locking cams that are preinstalled for you and secured to the shelf in two locations with a outrigger arm with a simple twist of the anchor screw. Some competitors use screws to hold shelves together and the shelves must be staggered to access the screws.
  • Suspended Systems — Closet Works uses a robust adjustable hanger bracket suspension system to hang panels and allow for adjustment in up/down directions and forward/backward directions. Many of our competitors don't use suspension brackets. Panels are hung directly on the rail which then takes the weight of the system. This is often a point of system failure. In addition, our suspension brackets come with plastic covers to hide them, including any hardware used to secure the rail to the wall, after installation is complete. Competitors use a steel rail that has no cover included and won't offer the same kind of clean finish to your system.
  • Floor Based Systems — If you select a backing for your system, Closet Works will use the same 3/4" laminate as used on the rest of the system and secure it to the side panels. Some of our competitors use very thin material that they simply glue to the wall.
  • Drawers — Closet Works uses wood drawer boxes and dovetail construction as standard on all of our drawer boxes. This results in a high-quality drawer that doesn't come apart.
  • Drawer Slides — Full-extension, undermount drawer slides with soft close hydraulic dampeners are standard on all Closet Works drawers. These nearly invisible drawer slides ensure that your drawers close quietly and smoothly each and every time, even when slammed shut. Furthermore, all of our drawers have a 100-pound class dynamic load rating and pass KCMA/BIFMA/BHMA/ANSI specifications.
