In 1978, California Closets was created in Southern California by a college student interested in maximizing his dorm room closets. More than 40 years later, they’ve revolutionized how we live, with their innovative products and designs that increase the beauty and efficiency of the entire home. From the bedroom to the home office, entertainment centers, libraries, playrooms, pantries, laundry rooms, wine storage and craft areas, they can transform just about any specialized space imaginable. The latest design trend is to make the long-neglected garage look as good as the rest of the home. This critical area provides storage for everything from cars to tools, and often acts as a workspace for special projects, such as gardening and crafting. California Closets offers two types of slat walls and two types of flooring; epoxy floors and a more modular option, racedeck tile floors. They also offer a large selection of custom storage cabinets tailored to your interests and needs to create an organized space that makes enjoying hobbies and completing tasks easier; CaliforniaClosets.com/Miami.
