Friday was the official beginning of the fall season. In the north, fall is signaled by the changing colors of the shrubs and trees and the appearance of storm windows and doors. In Southern California, you know fall has arrived when homeowners start painting, cleaning and reorganizing.
One of the hottest reorganizing systems today is closet modules. They are available in all sizes, shapes, materials and colors. All of the companies listed below will come into a home and provide a free estimate. Prices can vary widely depending on the degree of customization. The prices quoted below are based on an eight-foot closet space. A spokesman for one company said they have been commissioned to install a $10,000 system merely so the customer can store her furs.
