Right now everyone is looking for ways to spend this extra time at home. More time in the house has also drawn attention to organization issues that normally get overlooked – like your cramped reach-in closet that’s overflowing with items or your walk-in master closet that’s not being utilized to its full potential.

For good reason, closet cleanouts and DIY closet organization are quickly becoming a popular stay-at-home project. It’s a much needed and deeply satisfying task to tackle, plus, it will set you up for success once busy schedules resume.

The new Closets by Liberty™ closet organization system is the perfect choice for creating your DIY custom closet.

With installation requiring just one person and a few household tools, this might be the easiest stay-at-home project you complete. You’ll go from a dysfunctional space to a DIY custom closet in just one afternoon.

There’s no need to call in a handyman.

The ideal stay-at-home project can be completed without calling in help. When you choose a Closets by Liberty™ system for your DIY closet project, you won’t need to bring a handyman or a custom closet designer into your home.

Once you select from our 3- to 11-foot options, it takes just one person to assemble and install the system of your choosing. You can tackle this project all by yourself!

And you can stay in those comfy clothes. No need to change into work clothes for painting, table sawing, or heavy-lifting. To put together your system you’ll only use a few basic tools that you already have around the house: a drill, a screwdriver, a level, and safety glasses.

It takes less time to complete than a puzzle.

Another key part of any good stay-at-home project is the time frame. With spouses, kids, or pets underfoot, it’s not a good idea to take on a project that lasts for days on end. Especially if the assembly takes up valuable living space.

A Closets by Liberty™ system can be completed from start to finish in just one afternoon. That means it will take even less time than that 1,000 piece puzzle you’ve been eying. Especially when you consider that the system comes with a complete and clear instruction guide. You’ll also find a helpful installation video online that walks through each step of the process, including important call-outs.

You’ll receive all the pieces you need in the boxes that are delivered right to your home. No need to run out to the store for additional screws or parts. You can get started right away! The first tower will likely take the longest, but you’ll move quickly through the rest of the build once you understand the simple process.

Change your system as life changes.

If there’s anything we know for sure, it’s that life is uncertain. That’s why customization features are so important when choosing a DIY closet system.

With a Closets by Liberty™ system, you can select exactly where you want to place your hanging rods, shelves, and drawers. Bracket holes are located every 4.5” along the tower frames so you can find the perfect height for your storage accessories. You can also move them left and right between towers to best fit your needs.

While your current day-to-day wardrobe probably consists of loungewear and comfy clothes, you’ll need those blazers and suits again! Closets by Liberty™ systems make it simple to create space for your favorite sweatpants and move formal wear up and out of the way. Over time you can continue to adjust for seasonal wardrobe shifts, lifestyle changes, and more!
