OUR STORY

We offer cost effective

personalized storage solutions

for any space and any need.

For more than two decades, we have created cost effective personalized storage solutions from master suites to children’s closets, pantries, laundry rooms and more. And for all those years, we have been doing this differently.  We are not a franchise based, cabinet-counting company pressured by corporate sales quotas.  We are your regional, owner operated business with an on-site woodshop and a big passion. Our passion is about your space being efficient, adaptable and comfortable: the ergonomics and lifestyle of storage.

Our first question at Ridgewood Closets is not ‘how big is your space?’. We start with ‘how big is your stuff?’. We care whether you wear a tie every day, need to arrange your shoe collection or find homes for a jumble of kids toys and crafts. We care because any storage solution has to start with what you own, what is precious to you.

And then we still don’t ask ‘how big is your space’. We want to know how you use your space, how you move around it, how often you need to access which stuff. Why? Because we are passionate about making space usable. We won’t design you an expensive closet island if what you really need are more shelves and a place to sit down to put on your shoes.

Because our cabinetry is all made on-site, we can design solutions with your needs first, rather than selling you un-personalized, ready-made configurations.  And because we don’t emphasize commissions, we won’t sell you one drawer, one shelf, one tie rack more than you need.

Ridgewood Closets your stuff. your space. our passion
