I just put the finishing touches on my Modular Closets system in my cloffice and I am so pumped about it!!
A few people have DMed me asking what a cloffice is and why I call my office a cloffice—a cloffice is a closet + office. I’ve seen some where someone has put a desk in their actual closet, and others that are more of an open closet inside their office.
My cloffice is more the latter. It’s my office, with an open closet that I built with Modular Closets. So there ya go—cloffice!
I have legit dreamed of having an open closet like this in my office! As Omied says, it’s very “bloggy.” Lol. And while it might be a bit of a fashion blogger cliche, I’m all heart eyes emoji over it.
There are plenty of closet systems out there (I had a PAX IKEA in our old apartment—you can read my IKEA PAX review here) and it can be a bit overwhelming to choose the right one for you.
To help you get a feel for what Modular Closets is all about, here’s a closer look at my built-in Modular Closet system, info on the design process, and my review!
Modular Closets Review
Modular Closets – Design
The main thing that I loved right away about Modular Closets was that you can customize your own closet storage design or have Modular Closets design a closet system for you, for free!
I decided to have Modular Closets do my closet design and it was so great having their help with this. I gave them my measurements for the inside of my closet in my office, and a couple of inspo shots from other bloggers’ cloffices.
I let them know that I needed a few drawers, lots of shelves, and some space for hanging clothes. Their designers got to work and sent me back a few different closet design options. I gave them some feedback (I liked some parts of Design 1 and some parts from Design 2), and they came back with a revised design that was perfect.
I loved that Modular Closets had a few different hardware and products to choose from—I went with shaker style drawer fronts and gold hardware pulls.
Once I approved the design, all of the product and wood pieces for the closet system was shipped out.
I had to do some prep work to get my room ready to install my closet system. The closet in my office room originally had two mirror sliding doors, and a shelf and clothing rod. So I got to work removing the doors and track to give it that open closet vibe. All it took was removing a bunch of screws with my power drill. Then I got out a crowbar and pried off the built-in shelf and clothing rod.
I patched up the inside of my closet with drywall patch and painted everything Sherwin Williams Greek Villa (to match the rest of my room/the house). We also had new carpet and baseboard being installed on the second floor of our house, so that took care of the spot where the closet door track had been.
Modular Closets Install
Next up, it was time to install! This was relatively easy and the instructions were detailed and straightforward.
You don’t need a ton of tools for this, but a power drill is helpful for some of the screws. We’ve been putting together a lot of furniture for our new home, and let me tell you, once I got comfortable using a power drill it was pretty life-changing.
We did have a minor hiccup with the first delivery as I discovered I was missing a few of the wood closet pieces. But Modular Closets’ customer service was super responsive and made sure the remaining pieces were shipped out to me ASAP.
Once we had all the right pieces, it took about five hours to install.
I wanted to jazz up my closet a bit so here are a few updates I made to it.
Modular Closets’ closet systems come with silver rods for hanging your clothes, but I wanted something gold to go with my “bloggy” (as my husband would call it 😆) aesthetic. So I ordered these gold tension rods from Amazon and used these for my hanging clothes rods instead and they have been perfect!
I also wanted to cover up all of the holes that are meant for easily adjusting shelves, so I got 5mm plastic hole plugs from Amazon as well and they were great—putting a cover on each hole makes a big difference and just gives an overall cleaner look.
For another aesthetic touch, I bought white velvet rose gold hangers. They are sooo good.
Another pro tip that a handyman taught me—I used a caulk gun on all of the lines where the walls met the storage system and where the three closet system frames came together. This isn’t necessary but it’s just another little detail that helps clean everything up and it really made the closet system look so fresh.

Once my closet system was installed, I had so much fun styling it with accessories, books, knick nacks, etc.
I wanted it to be both stylish and inspiring, but also functional.
The drawers are great for storing/hiding office things as well as new products that have recently been sent to me from brands that I’m working with that I need to shoot. And the clothing rods are great for hanging new pieces that have come in that I need to keep in mind for styling or shooting for brand campaigns.

That’s the scoop on my Modular Closet system in my cloffice! Their closet system would obviously work well in any closet since you can have so many customization and size options, but I also think it would be awesome in your kitchen pantry.
If you’re not sure where to start, Modular Closets also has pre-designed closet systems you can check out.
Overall, I love how my closet system turned out and that Modular Closets has so many options, at a reasonable price point, and I would absolutely recommend them if you’re looking for a modular closet system.
Huge thank you to Modular Closets for gifting me this closet system!
