Closets by Design’s local owner, Michael Manfre, says his business operates absolutely as a team effort and that this month is a great one to get organized. Closets by Design can design, manufacture and install closets, offices, garages, mud rooms, entertainment centers and pantries, as well as transform large rooms into the closet or office of your dreams.
What is an average day like?
Our designers meet clients to design a custom unit. Once these designs are approved and an installation date is set, the designs are sent to our “cutlist” office where the dimensions of the material to be cut are determined and special orders are placed. This information is given to manufacturing, and once the job has been produced, the installation team loads the materials onto the truck, delivers and installs at the client’s location.
What is a good way to organize a small space?
Since our products are custom, we can fit an organization unit, shelving, hanging [and more] into any space. This will allow the clients to organize and clear the clutter.
Are there special recommendations you have for children’s closets?
Hanging sections, easy access drawer units, durable metal baskets and adjustable shelving will always work for your small children. One of the great features of our units is that they can be adjusted to accommodate children’s needs as they get older.
What else do you want our readers to know?
Closets by Design is owned and supported by local families. Since our manufacturing facility is locally and centrally located, we are able to produce and deliver our product in a timely manner, usually within 2 to 3 weeks. In addition, we have the benefits, support and expertise of a national franchise.
