A craft storage space can help a hobby flourish or turn a passion into a home business. California Closets can help you design the ultimate craft room, like the one pictured above, with paneled cabinets in Almond finish, a pull-out workstation shelf and dowels for wrapping paper (or fabric).



Garage Redefined

California Closets can turn your garage into a functional and stylish space for hobbies, tools, a workshop or even a home office. “The garage used to be where we kept our car and overflow of junk,” says Laurelle Rzeszewski of California Closets. “Today, the trend in garage storage design is creating tailored solutions that reflect the way you live.”
