Our Design Process
Closets & Storage, our goal is to have your new closets
installed as soon as possible so you can begin to enjoy the benefits of
a clutter-free life! Our method of closet planning and
installation is simple and designed for speed and efficiency.
Inventory and Measure
First, we will ask you to take a hard
look at the storage area you want to improve. Assess what is
there. Ask yourself what should be stored there and what can
either be moved somewhere else or eliminated. This is a great
time to sort, pare down, or give some things away to charity. How
about that yard sale you've been wanting to have? Thinking about
the things that need storing and organizing will lead to the best
closet components for your individual needs.
group items into categories. For instance, in a closet, how many
long hanging items do you need space for? How many short hanging items?
What should be stored in drawers or on shelves? Count the
number of pieces.
careful measurements. Measure the wall lengths and the ceiling
height. Note widths of door and window openings (outside trim to
outside trim). Note slanted ceiling heights and the location of
any outlets, switches, air intakes or vents that must be considered in
the design. Also note the kind of walls you have--drywall,
plaster, concrete, wood or other. Is there anything behind the
walls our installer should know about, such as plumbing chases, ducts,
or pocket doors?
your measurements in hand (photos are most helpful, also), visit our
showroom to see our displays and discuss your goals and requirements
with our designers. You will learn about the many options that
are available for closet customizing, finishes, and price levels.
designer will prepare a closet design for you based on your needs and
specifications. Then you will meet with the designer to review
the proposed plan and pricing for the closet system and installation.
A 50% deposit is required to place the order.
the designer will schedule a visit to your home to take field
measurements. We have a very quick turnaround time with Schulte!
It will take from one to two weeks from the time your order is
placed until we receive it in our warehouse, where it will be inspected
and checked for accuracy. Meanwhile, our project coordinator will
contact you to schedule a convenient time for installation. As
Jay Rambo Co. builds your closet cabinetry to order, the lead time is a
little longer--ten to twelve weeks.
to installation, we ask that you completely empty the closet or area to
be installed. If you are planning to paint, please have the
area painted prior to installation. (You may contract our
Handyman Services Division to demolish the old closet, prep walls and
paint for you, if you prefer! Just call 770-729-1999 for a
quote.) All that we ask is that there is a clear space near the
area to be installed for our installers to work in and a place for them
to set up their equipment (usually the garage).
the closet installation, our installer will review your new closets with
you and explain how easy it is to make adjustments like moving
the shelves or hanging rods. Your remaining balance will be due
at this time.

components! Your designer will call to make sure everything is as
you expected and may request permission to take photographs. We
know that you will be so pleased that you will want to refer us to your
friends and neighbors! At CSI, "Others promise, CSI deliversTM," is more than just a slogan, it is the philosophy we live by.
