Hi, Lonny. I was exercising when you finished up last night, and Viktoria told me that you wanted me to look things over and tell you what I think.
Well, I like it — very, very much!
First, I think you did an outstanding job of designing something that makes the best use of the available space.
Second, I appreciate your attention to detail. Since I was here during a good part of the installation, I can say–as a first-hand witness–that I was very favorably impressed by your earnest efforts to deliver exceptional results. And I think you met that goal.
Third, I appreciate your candor, as well as your efforts to involve me in the decision-making. When there were choices to be made, you asked for my view. And when there were problems (in this instance, very minor problems), you pointed them out immediately, and, at the point at which you did so, you were fully equipped to discuss options and to offer solutions.
Fourth, you did what I asked you to do: You were extraordinarily clean, and you did a terrific job of protecting the newly painted walls and newly refinished floors. You’re the first contractor that I’ve ever worked with–and I’m at the tail-end of a whole-house renovation–who rightfully deserves this compliment.
Fifth, you treated your new employee–who you were clearly training–with a great deal of dignity and respect.
All considered, you get a gold star, an A+ and a smiley face, and, believe me, as a litigation partner in the world’s largest and most international law firm, I’m a hard, hard grader.
In the middle of January, Lonny came over to look at the space. Within a few days, he sent me a quote plus some designs for the pantry & the guest room closet. Price-wise, he was definitely the lowest of the quotes I obtained. He was very responsive and re-designed the few times as I changed my mind This past Saturday Gilbert & another installer came to install the cabinets. They were very professional, introduced themselves, set-up cloths everywhere, and made sure nothing in my house was damaged. They were so clean and quick! Gilbert removed the old stuff in the guest closet, did the patchwork, and up the new closet came! He put in the structure for the pantry and led the other installer through the rest. I saw them checking constantly to make sure things were level. Everything looks gorgeous and I am so happy with my new organized space. For the price, I got a great value. Thanks! And a super big thanks for accommodating me on a Saturday when I couldn’t take time off work.
The job was done professionally with high quality work. We just love this new closet. It looks absolutely beautiful; it is such an upgrade from the white wire racks we had before. Lonny Goldberg, President, met with me several times as he worked on a design for the closet. The job went smoothly, the installers started when I was told the job would start and completed in a day. I would recommend Everything Closets whole heartedly. All calls were promptly returned and the work and design is just excellent. I will definitely call Everything Closets again for further work in our home.
Lonny came to our home to discuss what we wanted and to take measurements. I had an idea of what I wanted and he had very useful suggested to improve on my sketches. He designed a closet system for our master walk-in and a mudroom storage area. In just a few days we had reviewed and revised his design via email and scheduled the build out for the end of the week. A skilled gentleman came to our house as scheduled and installed the closet that day. He cleaned up very well after himself and came back the next day to install the custom built mudroom storage unit. The mudroom unit included three separate pieces (shoe storage, coat hooks and cubby storage above), which were assembled on site and installed exactly as described in the design. The end result was even better than we had imagined. We are completely satisfied with the work performed and would definitely recommend this provider and will use him again in the future.

Everything went great, Lonny was very thorough with his planning so when the technicians came there was little to discuss. I also was able to make the hanging section of the closet very high for myself since I am 6’4″ and the closet has 10 ft ceilings. Not only was this great but everything is movable if we sell the unit ever and they would prefer to have a different setup on the shelves. Everything looks great. The price was better than the competition and the quality was just as good as well. He did not try to up sell us on fancy finishes and other upgrades that other large companies did. We may be using his company again for another closet as storage is always a big need in a condo in Chicago.
After getting three quotes on the job, we chose Everything Closets because they seemed to have the highest quality and best price. Lonnie was not only very professional, but also very helpful in the design process. He was able to match the color of the master bedroom shelving and drawers to the built-in that was already there. He even matched the knobs for the drawers to the built in! He brought samples of everything at the initial visit, so that there would be no surprises. His input in regards to the height of shelving, hanging areas, etc. was invaluable. He was also flexible with some last minute changes, and put in a drawer top that matched the granite in the adjoining master bathroom at no extra charge. The install also went without a hitch. He had two guys come out, and they were able to finish within a day. This included cutting of some of the baseboards,and removal of the old shelving. They were even able to put a light switch flush to the side of the closet, rather than just cutting a hole. They left no marks on the walls, or footprints on carpeting. They were prompt, professional, and left the house as clean as they found it. Overall, we highly recommend Everything Closets for anyone looking to renovate their closet space or pantries.

They took care of my every request. I was very pleased with this company. The workman are well skilled and clean up well after themselves. Everyone I have worked with in the company has been very nice. After everything was finished I made a change with one of the original closets which they handled beautifully. I have been pleased with every experience I have had with this company.
Great! I got a couple of quotes and all the prices were pretty comparable. But, I chose Lonny because his company got rave reviews on Angie’s list. I also really liked that he’s the owner and the designer so he was intricately involved in the details. (Other companies seemed good, but it’s nice to deal with the owner, in my opinion). He really lived up to the reviews. He was prompt with submitting his design, and he was very professional. The price was fair and we got our job done very quickly (within a week of my decision to go with him). I wish I had had my closets done years ago!
EC response was fantastic. I was on a tight deadline for the first set of inserts and EC came through like champs. They even gave me a clothes rack to hang my things on until the inserts were ready. We changed the look of the doors on the armoire and now they match my 6-panel closet doors–way cool!
I found Everything Closets on Angie’s list and I could not have made a better choice. Lonny was one of the best contractors I ever worked with. We had 2 walk in closets (a his and hers) in an upstairs attic bedroom that had slopped ceilings. We also had a large linen closet that needed better organization. My closet needs were different than my wife’s. She needed more rod space and a lot of shelving for shoes and sweaters. I needed drawer space as well as a lot of shelving space. Lonny came up with a separate design for each of us as well as a nice design for the linen closet. While custom made closets may seem expensive, don’t be put off by the price. Everything is custom made, fitted and professionally installed. It is also designed with a lot of flexibility in mind. A lot of material and workman ship was required for the many shelves and drawers we had installed. You cannot find this quality of material in any do-it-yourself store.
I am fairly handy but I could never have installed anything this professionally. Our closets are picture perfect for any home decorating magazine. We are very pleased. Lonny has been great to work with. He is creative and helpful. I did get other bids and found his to be very competitive. I highly recommend him.

Lonny provided excellent advice and good ideas on optimizing closet space in our house. He also was forthright in telling us where not to waste our money, and provided a detailed and competitive quote. His crew was very responsible, timely and friendly. The final products were exactly as ordered, the quality was great and the service level was exceptional. We strongly recommend using Everything Closets.
Lonny came out to look at the place the day that we closed and had everything done before we moved in (which was only 10 days later). He was incredibly responsive and accommodated our crazy schedule without any complaints. The closet is BEAUTIFUL and worth every penny. He worked with us to pick out materials that match the feel of our house and the closet fits right in and looks like it belongs.

From start to finish was less then two weeks. They arrived when they said they would, installed all of the closets, and cleaned up before they left. If your thinking about closets this is the company to use.
Lonny visited our condo during a complete remodel to help us develop design ideas for our closets and to create an estimate. He asked great questions and had very helpful ideas about how we might want to maximize the space in our small closets. We really got exactly the closet set-ups we were looking for: the materials and design make their usefulness apparent daily. Lonny worked within our narrow schedule and the installers are professional, courteous, and know their stuff! Also, they were extremely professional with a follow-up issue. Highly recommended.
Lonny was wonderful. He gave so many great suggestions for how to use our space efficiently, yet at the same time left everything open to me to decide for myself. And in many cases, after hearing about what we were going to use the space for, he offered us a lower-priced option that would be more good enough for us. He was very patient, a great listener, and turned designs and estimates around very quickly. We had a tight window of time to get our closets installed before we moved in, and he squeezed us in to accommodate us. Just wonderful. I would recommend them to anyone.
Lonny was GREAT! He had a very tough job of designing a closet that would be accessible for my husband and I who are both in wheelchairs. We met several times; including visits to my home to see with his own eyes the space our chairs required for a full rotation in the closet. Lonny ordered a special handicap closet rod that raised and lowered by tension. He did not feel comfortable taking any money from me until he actually installed it in his own showroom and had me in to try its performance. He and I both decided that it was too difficult to operate independently and Lonny went back to the drawing board. When the job was completed, a design we both agreed upon, Lonny still did not want any money from us until we used the closet and it worked for us. We were amazed that anyone would put that much time and effort into helping another person to complete satisfaction!

This was a great experience. We have a new construction house where the closets were not finished. Lonny met me at the house; he rearranged his schedule to meet me as mine was very tight. He worked around my budget and needs, made terrific suggestions and was very helpful. He suggested appropriate colors for the shelving, not the most expensive. Which was very nice. They even took my height into factor when building my closet (I’m only 5 ft. tall) and the workmen made sure I could reach the top hang shelf! As for the work, the workers couldn’t have been nice and more professional. My scheduling got a little screwy when it came to installation (my fault not his) and Lonny couldn’t have been more accommodating. He fit me into his schedule and all the work was done quickly, efficiently, and on budget, with no surprises. They cleaned up their work space well, it’s almost as if they weren’t here at all, except I have 6 great closets to show for it! I will call Lonny again when we are ready to build out the office and garage.
Everything looks amazing!!!! The quality of the work is phenomenal and the men cleaned up 100% after they were done! We have so much more storage now and everything will be perfectly organized! Looks terrific! We will recommend Everything Closets to our friends and family!
