The 2023 Top Shelf Design Awards launches on December 3.

The Best of Show winner (project receiving the highest score from the judges) will receive a $500 gift card and all award winners will receive an award plaque and/or a certificate and will be featured in Closets & Organized Storage magazine and its social media channels. 

The Top Shelf Design Awards are given annually to honor designers for their creative closet and home organizational designs. Each entry is judged based on the following criteria: 50 percent appearance/design (emphasizing design creativity) and 50 percent functionality and quality of construction/materials.


The 2022 Top Shelf Design Awards reception, sponsored by Rev-A-Shelf, was held on April 28 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California and took place on a second-floor terrace overlooking Coronado Island just across the bay from downtown.
