• Container Store — The first name in closet and storage. We're big fans of Elfa shelving — and being able to get personalized help designing a closet is a big bonus.
• Easy Closets — With this cheaper alternative to California Closets, you can lay out your closet online using the site's design tools. You can also get help from one of their designers. Orders ship the next business day.
• Stacks and Stacks — The name may not be as familiar as Container Store, but this online shop is a rival in the storage game. They don't carry the popular Elfa shelving but they do have similar options
• Ikea — We couldn't leave out the big blue box. The Swedish retailer has lots of affordable options for both built-in closets and free-standing storage.
