Why she loves being a designer for Saint Louis Closet Co.: Helping people get organized is the most rewarding part of being a designer for Saint Louis Closet Co. I love working with repeat clients. They bring with them this contagious excitement. I enjoy going to new places, new spaces and new homes every day. Each day is different than the previous day. It keeps me on my toes and keeps my creativity going.
What is the most important thing to keep in mind when getting a custom closet: First and foremost, you need to prioritize your spaces. You should start with the most unorganized, disruptive place in your home. The change you will see after fixing just that one space is amazing and you’ll realize just how much custom organization has helped your life.
What she likes to do when she’s not designing: Playing with my two grandchildren, swing dancing, golfing, water aerobics and visiting with family and friends.

Why she loves being a designer for Saint Louis Closet Co.: The extremely satisfied repeat customers! My goal is to change chaos into a well-designed place for everything and to create new spaces in each of my customer’s lives. I walk away from their homes knowing that I really helped to make a difference in their lives.
What is the most important thing to keep in mind when getting a custom closet: It helps tremendously when you can actually sit down with your designer and have her draw up your closets on the spot and explain exactly how the design is going to meet your needs.
What she likes to do when she’s not designing: Spending time with my husband, son and daughter are on the top of my list. We are always updating and remodeling our home. We also enjoy weekend getaways at Mark Twain Lake, boating, jetskiing and kayaking.

Why she loves being a designer for Saint Louis Closet Co.: First and foremost, the amazing relationships I have developed over the years with both new and repeat customers. Secondly, I love being able to use my creativity every day; every project is completely different, with its own specialized needs.
What is the most important thing to keep in mind when getting a custom closet: Because the custom closets are 100% adjustable they can be changed as your needs change. If you sell your home, that feature is passed on to the new homeowner. Custom closets are considered a permanent improvement to your home and will add significant resale value. Secondly, I love that it is the only female-owned closet business in St. Louis. [Owner] Jennifer Williams operates this company in the same manner that she would want people to work for her in her own home. There is unparalleled attention to detail and a great level of respect and care given to each and every customer.

What is the most important thing to keep in mind when getting a custom closet: Do not be intimidated by getting organized; it is not as daunting of a task as you think it will be.

It allows me to plan my time to be able to serve my customers, as well as spending time with my family. Each day is a fun new challenge, and the variety of what I can offer goes beyond storage issues, it’s a complete organizational re-work. It is truly rewarding to help my clients.
What is the most important thing to keep in mind when getting a custom closet: Most people don’t realize how affordable custom closets can be. Many think that you have to spend a lot of money and get all sorts of accessories, but most times I find that keeping the design simple not only makes it affordable, but you don’t feel overwhelmed or distracted by how much is going on in your closets. Don’t forget that the closet is the tool, not the solution, to getting organized. It is up to you to keep yourself organized, but you will be amazed at just how much easier it will be to stay organized by installing one of our custom closet systems.

There is so much to learn and so many ways to be creative, I love it!

What is the most important thing to keep in mind when getting a custom closet: Saint Louis Closet Co. designs custom spaces based on the customers specific needs. Take time to think about how you use your space on a daily basis and communicate that with your designer. The details of your life are reflected in the details of your closet, pantry, home office, etc. So definitely keep that in mind throughout the design process.
