ClosetMaid’s MasterSuite system was installed in almost every room of the three-story, 5,427-square-foot home, including bedrooms, bathrooms, the kitchen, hallways, the study, the mudroom, and a game room. Although each configuration varied, they all featured MasterSuite in white with white shaker drawer fronts, soft-close rails and chrome hardware.

 
The project was handled by Brandon Olson, owner of Closet Creations, under contract for  MN Custom Homes. “We were very happy with the final design. Having worked with Closet Creations for almost four years, we’ve come to place great trust in the company and in the ClosetMaid products they provide,” says Joe Naeseth, owner of MN Custom Homes.
 
The ClosetMaid company has been more aggressively pursing commercial installations, aiding job bids from headquarters and installations by dealers locally. Last year its flexible home storage systems were selected to outfit the bedrooms and laundry rooms of Form 15, a luxury, 242-unit apartment complex located in San Diego, California. Form 15's units range from studios to 3-bedroom apartments and within each unit ClosetMaid's MasterSuite white melamine floor-mounted organizing system and adjustable shelving were used in the master bedroom to store clothing, linens and shoes.
