St. Louis Closet Co. goes SOLAR!

Saint Louis Closet Co. adds to their green building and practices by going SOLAR!!  With the installation of 200 Solar Panels on the roof of the St. Louis Closet Co. world headquarters at 2626 S. Big Bend in St. Louis, Mo. we expect to save enough energy to produce over 300 closets per year in the manufacturing plant.

Save the planet, save on your utilities, do the right thing…GO SOLAR, here’s 10 reasons why Saint Louis Closet Co. went SOLAR;


As the world’s second largest consumer of electricity, the United States has a huge appetite for energy.  The U.S. Energy Information Administration predicts that the demand for electricity will steadily increase throughout the next 30 years.  With rising restrictions in the power generation industry and a need to update the grid to distributed generation structuring, solar power is fast becoming a popular alternative to the more conventional energy sources.  Both the intrinsic and financial incentives for making a switch are compelling reasons for homeowners to take a closer look at Solar Energy.

1. Solar systems save money by reducing the need for buying electricity.

2. Solar powered homes and businesses can make money by selling excess electricity to the power company and.

3. Almost all of the states offer rebates, grants, and reductions in sales tax. Federal income tax credits of up to 30 percent are also a benefit. In addition, many utility companies offer specialized loans and performance based incentives.

4. The National Bureau of Economic Research states that home and business resale value increases 3.5 percent when equipped with solar technology.

5. This type of energy is clean, renewable, and environmentally friendly. There are no hazardous emissions or by-products.

6. Technological growth has led to systems that are affordable and reliable. Modern systems convert DC power into AC power, so it is used in the home or business just like traditional electricity.

7. A solar system requires very little maintenance, only needing cleaned when dust or dirt has accumulated. Plus, they have a lifespan well over 25 years!

8. Solar energy offers a predictable, distributed stream of supply. This lowers the chances of brownouts and blackouts.  The California Energy Crisis of 2000 and 2001 is an example of how tenuous the reliance on electrical power can be.

9. With each installation, national reliance on foreign energy sources is reduced.  This helps keep our country safe and out of volatile countries run by dictators.

10. The solar industry is a fast growing field, meaning jobs are being added daily.  One residential installation directly employs at least 5 people, and that’s not counting those employed in the industry’s the manufacturing and corporate sector!

As the most widely available energy source on the planet, the sun provides a limitless opportunity to power our lives. In fact, it is speculated that covering the Gobi desert with solar panels would create enough electricity to supply the entire world. And, it offers a better average return on investment than the stock market, making it a smart choice.

Men Love Organization Too!

Tie Butlers

Don’t forget Dad on Father’s Day this year!  Men love organization too!  Whether it’s a new tie rack or a slide-out rack for his slacks, Dad will love the thought of an organized closet. Check out some organization tips from Esquire magazine.

For suits: Suit jackets spend much of their lives in the closet. And the best way to maintain their structure and shape is with hangers that mimic the slope and width of your own shoulders. To prevent any wrinkling, hang your suits, shirts, and trousers with some room between them.

For shirts: Even your shirt needs solid support to reduce stress on the seams, and it won’t get that from those paltry white wire hangers you get from the dry cleaner. Invest in a handful of sturdy wooden hangers and you and your shirts will look much better much longer.

For pants: A good trouser hanger maintains a sharp crease and causes as few wrinkles as possible at the fold. A felt-lined clamp hanger, or a felt-lined trouser bar accomplishes both.

Ask The Owner: Jennifer Williams


There are so many misconceptions that we hear every day when it comes to custom closets. I wanted to take a few moments to debunk just a few of the most popular…

MYTH:  My closets are too small to be customized.

TRUTH: Actually, small closets are the ones that need custom organization the most.  You have the everyday challenge of  maximizing your space and we specialize in doing just that.  We can add a few simple shelves and hanging rods that will give you space you never knew you had.  You will be amazed at just what we are able to do for you!

MYTH:  Custom closets are just too expensive.

TRUTH: This is one we hear every day, but it is just not true.  Custom closets are absolutely affordable, no matter what your budget may be.  We can organize a small reach-in closet for as little as $250!  An investment in your closet saves you time and keeps your clothing and shoes in good condition.

MYTH:  A Murphy Bed would take up too much space.

TRUTH: The entire queen-size Murphy Bed system is only 65.5” wide and 16” deep, and you only need 91” of floor space when you open it.  It will also allow you to use your room for other purposes such as an office, family room or study. Murphy Beds are also available in twin-size.
