Smart Closets was born from the simple idea that custom storage solutions should be easily accessibile to everyone. Founded in 2009, we quickly became one of the most trusted custom closet companies in the Greater Seattle Metropolitan area with our up-front and reasonable pricing, truly custom and innovative designs, high attention to detail and quality, and a genuine care for our clients and their needs.

The founders of Smart Closets are close friends from high school who shared a mutual interest in organization. Years of cabinet making and interest in organization led to a passion for building unique and custom storage solutions by friendly people and at great prices. Today, Smart Closets custom storage organizers can be found in thousands of homes and businesses throughout Seattle, Bellevue, Tacoma, Everett, and the surrounding Puget Sound cities.

An organizer at heart, Chad always had the cleanest bedroom as a child. He’s spent over 20 years growing and managing successful businesses using his attention to detail, organization, efficiency, and above all, his commitment to providing an amazing experience for every client and team member. In addition to making sure Smart Closets is exceeding client expectations, he’s passionate about traveling the world, hiking, and trying all of Seattle’s amazing restaurants.

“Being part of a team that helps make peoples lives easier through storage organization is really fun, and I get to do it everyday and call it work.”

Zach Frafford, Co-Founder and Designer

At a young age Zach was always helping on his family’s farm, learning the value of hard work and the skills of carpentry. He mastered cabinet making while working at a custom kitchen cabinet manufacturer before spending time as an auto body repair specialist, surveyor, and in retail management. His passion for cabinet making led to Smart Closets where he now works closely with clients and our team as our designer, but he’s often building and installing projects too. He can often be found soaking up the sun in one Seattle’s many parks, or cleaning.

“I really enjoy working with our clients to design unique custom storage solutions that they will use and love for many years to come.”

Seattle is home

From the beginning we’ve invested in our own showroom and manufacturing facility right here in Seattle because we know they are critical to providing the very best custom closet products in the industry. More importantly, these facilities provide local career opportunities for some really awesome folks, all of whom are full-time team members and never sub-contractors or temporary agency employees. We’re also committed to purchasing our materials from local suppliers whenever possible to further support the surrounding economy and reduce our environmental impact.

Kind words from honest folks

“The entire process from the original scope, discussion, layouts, plans and execution were FANTASTIC! Thanks again for the great work. It’s so very hard to find businesses that do good, reliable, solid work these days. I hope it pays off and more people read this and come to you as well.”

“I went back to Smart Closets the second time around because of the quality of my master closets, and how functional their designs were, and how quick they were on email. I love all the work they’ve done for us and we’ll be using our space effectively and efficiently for years to come.”

“We have now lived with the closet for a couple of months - and we are still impressed daily by how elegant it looks. Functionality, durability and quality are without compare - and we find ourselves with almost too much drawer space! We heartily recommend this company and will use them again!”
