Are your in-home estimates free and do you charge for design services?
Yes, all our in-home and virtual design consultations are free of charge and we do not charge for our design services. You will be provided with closet designs and prices within 24-48 hours of your initial appointment.
Do your closet systems hang from the wall?
No, all Saint Louis Closet Co. systems are designed, engineered, and manufactured to be safe floor-based systems. All the vertical panels sit on your floor (just like furniture), therefore the weight of the shelving and your clothes is supported by your floor and not suspended from the wall. All Saint Louis Closet Co. systems are attached to your wall for security.
Does Saint Louis Closet Co. manufacture all closet systems locally?
Yes, 100% of our materials and systems are manufactured in our 20,000 square foot manufacturing factory in Maplewood, Mo. We do not sell pre-made parts, therefore your closet system is truly custom and we can design anything to fit any space.
Are you locally owned?
Yes, Saint Louis Closet Co. was founded in 1991 by St. Louis native and Kirkwood High School Graduate Jennifer Quinn Williams. She still owns and operates 100% of the company.
Do you have to have a large closet in order to get a custom closet?
No, actually the opposite! Since we manufacture everything 100% custom we can work with any space, large or small. Sometimes it’s the smallest of closets that benefit from a custom closet system. Saint Louis Closet Co. custom closets can be as simple or elaborate as you wish—basic shelves and hanging to crown moldings, doors and drawers, pull-out rods and belt and tie racks.
Do you install custom closets for kids?
Absolutely! Due to the changing sizes and needs of growing kids and their growing collections of stuff, what’s really needed are closet systems that are fully adjustable to grow with their needs. Specially designed accessories such as telescoping rods, baskets, and drawer dividers all help babies, toddlers, and teens “clean up their room.” A floor-based system provides the most versatility. Vertical panels all rest on the floor, so the child can have shelves on the bottom or hanging. This adjustability also makes changing a child’s closet a breeze.
Does Saint Louis Closet Co. offer Murphy Beds and Wallbeds?
Yes we do! Saint Louis Closet Co. specializes in creating elegant yet functional Murphy beds that can be customized even further by installing matching shelving or even a desk. This way, these rooms have the most efficient use of space possible, which is something everyone needs, no matter the size of their home or room. Our Murphy Beds come in both Queen and Twin sizes and they include the mattress.
Do I need to make an appointment to visit the showroom?
Can you make your custom closet systems different colors?
Yes, we offer fifteen different finishes, including White, Grey, Black, and multiple woodgrain finishes. Our most recent additions are our five Legno finishes, with a tangible woodgrain texture. Check out the “materials” section on our website for all the options.
Can you rehang my wire shelving that fell down?
Unfortunately we don’t do anything with wire shelving, although we’d be happy to give you a quote to replace the wire shelving with a sturdier floor-based system made of ¾” thermal fused laminate (TFL).
Can I buy extra shelves to add to my Saint Louis Closet Co. system installed years ago?
Yes! We’d be happy to look up your original designs and manufacture whatever parts you want to add. Swapping out shelves and rods is the easiest, and often doesn’t even require any tools. We keep all files from every customer for over 32 years so we can easily look up your designs.
Do you have a showroom?
Yes, we are located in Maplewood, MO, at 2626 S. Big Bend Blvd. Our building houses our showroom and our manufacturing factory, stop by to see your closets being manufactured.
Do you do work in Illinois?
Yes! We cover the entire St. Louis metropolitan area, on both sides of the river. We frequently do work in Edwardsville, Columbia, Alton, Collinsville, and Belleville.
Do you do anything besides closets?
Absolutely! We can help with most storage projects in your home or business. We build desks and home offices, entertainment centers, sewing and crafting centers, bookshelves, laundry rooms, garages, murphy beds and more.
Saint Louis Closet Co. already installed shelving in my closet. Are there any accessories I can add to my closet?
We’ve got lots of great accessories to further customize your closet. It’s easy to add a telescoping rod for temporary hanging. Or check out our tie, scarf, and belt racks for your accessories. We also have several options for hooks or baskets to add to your closet.
What happens if my children outgrow their custom closet?
If we know one thing, it’s that change is inevitable. As families grow, their needs can change too. If you feel that you’ve either outgrown your unit or need to use it for a different purpose, give us a call. We’ll be happy to make adjustments – adding shelves, adding accessories, relocating hanging rods, or altering the unit altogether.
Do you just work in residential closets?
No, we frequently do work in schools and commercial spaces. We’ve done lockers for employees, mailrooms for teachers, desks for office spaces, and shelving for retail displays. All our estimates are free of charge, so feel free to call and we can give you an estimate for your business or school.
Do you sell Gift Certificates? If so, where can I find more info?
We sell gift certificates in any dollar amount! Sometimes gift-givers have a specific budget in mind, and other times it may make sense to talk to one of our designers to find out the approximate cost for a project you’re envisioning. Gift certificates are a great way to give someone a closet, but still let them participate in the design process, to make sure they get exactly what they want and need. Call us for more information 314-781-9000.
Do you provide pre tear-outs?
Most of the time, we’ll remove your existing shelving during the installation of your brand new organizational system. If you’d prefer to have your existing shelving removed a few days before your installation, we can certainly do that instead, for an additional charge. Having your closet shelving removed ahead of time gives you the opportunity to do any necessary wall repair, lay new flooring, or just put up a fresh coat of paint.
Will you remove and dispose of my existing closet shelving?
Yes! The first thing our installers do when they arrive at your house is to remove your existing shelving. They will spackle any holes in the wall and bring your old shelving back to our shop to be disposed of. Please let us know if you’d prefer to keep the material we remove from your closet! Also please note, we do not paint, so if you’re interested in painting please inquire about our pre-tear-out process.
Do you paint?
We do not paint, although we will spackle any holes created when we remove your existing shelving. Depending on what you had in the closet, you may need to do some touch-up painting after our installation. If you’d like the chance to put a fresh coat of paint on your walls, your best option is to have the existing closet shelving removed a few days before your installation.
Do your units have backing?
Our units do not come with backing unless you order separately. For the majority of our installations, the walls serve as the back of the unit.
Are your installers insured and bonded?
All of our installers are our full-time employees, and are fully bonded and insured.
Do you hire sub-contractors?
We do not subcontract out any of our work. All of our installers are our full-time employees.
Do you offer virtual design consultations?
Yes, as an alternative to an in-home consultation, we offer virtual consultations. Our designers can chat with you over the phone, by email, or on FaceTime to collect all the information they’ll need to give you a design and price. Call us at 314-781-9000 to get started.
Can you describe the design consultation process?
One of our designers will meet you at your home for a free, no-obligation design consultation. They’ll measure your closet or area you want organized and talk through your organizational needs. They’ll either sit down and design your closet for you right on the spot time permitting or take your dimensions and send you your designs within the next day or two. Allow about an hour for a design consultation.
Are you closets floor-based or wall-hung? Which is better?
We are 100% committed to floor-based closet systems. Compared to wall-hung shelving, a floor-based organization system resting on your floor is safer, studier, and gives you more flexibility to make adjustments or additions in the future.
