Custom Closets and Closet Organizers

We design, build and install custom design closets and closet organizers to help make more room and declutter your home.  Whether it’s a bedroom, laundry, office or hallway coat closet, no project is too small or big, simple or complex. Top Shelf gets the job done in a masterful, precise, and efficient way.  We come with many ideas to share for making your custom closet unique to your style and organizational storage needs.

Pantry Storage

Not all kitchens have enough space to store food and cookware, making custom-designed pantries a perfect solution.  With your vision in mind, we’ll guide you through the process of designing the ideal pantry for your kitchen storage needs.  Whether it’s shelving, a walk-in area, or a separate piece of furniture, our custom-designed pantries are sure to organize your kitchen for a more inspiring and functional cooking experience.

Garage Storage

If there isn’t enough storage in the house, the garage becomes the likely placement for seasonal or unused items. Often the garage becomes the dumping ground, taking too much space to park the car or have a designated area for your tools and workspace.   Top Shelf helps you utilize the garage in the best and most complete way through your vision and our craft, expertise and experience.

We’re not just any North Carolina closet company.  Top Shelf Closet is a one-stop-shop, specializing in custom-designed creative closets (in any room of the house), pantry, and garage storage.  We operate at an efficient and high level because all aspects of the business are handled in-house from estimation, design, manufacturing, and installation. We do it all!  This way, we’re ensuring no specifics get lost from outsourcing to different vendors, and the end product is exactly what our customers envisioned. We believe our business model is the best way for these reasons below:

Direct Communication

In manufacturing, problems come up all the time, especially with custom products.  The slightest issue can delay a whole project, so having everything in-house creates better communication and easier problem-solving.  Also, having direct contact with the manufacturing team, as opposed to phone calls or emails, makes for a speedy fix.  Therefore, communication is key to the success of any business, so why not keep it direct?

Quick Productivity

When all moving parts are in-house, the turnaround is much faster.  It’s common for products to either arrive late or coming in from all directions, causing major headaches for the customers.  Here at Top Shelf, multiple product shipments or scheduling conflicts aren’t a factor.  And, getting started almost right away is possible, once deciding everything and the manufacturing equipment is available.  We can usually get started within a week.  How quick is that!

Lower Costs

Moreover, in-house manufacturing saves you money by avoiding marked up retail prices on low to high-end products and materials.  Top Shelf Closet supplies everything you need, and the more you buy in quantity, the more you save.  So, there’s no reason to go anywhere else when you can get it all in one place.  Saving you time and money is a benefit when working with an in-house custom closet design and storage system company.  

Better Product Fit

Last but not least, working with a one-stop-shop offers you a better product fit.  Manufacturing each part of the product, the Top Shelf team has a better sense of how all the pieces fit together. Resulting in a more innovative and cohesive product, using various vendors––as opposed to in-house––couldn’t produce the same custom designs.  For most people, unique and stellar products are the most desirable, and a one-stop-shop can deliver.  It’s so fitting! 

Our custom closet, pantry, and garage storage solutions will surely impress you.
