Closet organizers

We had 4 closets that needed built in organizers. Marty was very professional in recommending practical designs, communication with the company was quick and clear, and the installation was excellent. Would highly recommend Markae.

Closets

We have ordered the closets (reach-in closets and walk-in closets) for the whole house and cabinets for the laundry room. The work was done in time without any complaints. Well done Mark!

Walk-In and Foyer Closet

Before choosing Markae I reached out to about 6 or 7 different companies. Some of them might have been comparable in price (although I don’t know about quality as the work Markae did was stunning!) but for me it came down to customer service. Markae was a pleasure to work with. Offering a design and quote immediately - so I really appreciated their transparency. They were also so friendly and responsive. Marty, our installer, needed to go back to the warehouse to finish a few adjustments - instead of rescheduling, he found a way to make it work the same day. I would 10000% recommend Markae and hope to be able to work with them again in the future for any organization needs.

Custom Built in Cabinets

I had an unusual situation that required custom built cabinets in order to maximize the use of the area, and most importantly to conceal some unsightly but necessary utility items such as a fuse box. Marty was undeterred by the challenge presented by the odd configuration of windows, fuse box, drop staircase, mouldings and other obstacles. He took thorough measurements and immediately came up with some really good suggestions and ideas. Marty promptly sent detailed drawings of his design along with a quote. Markae provided me with detailed instructions regarding payment and preparing for the installation, which ensured that the job went smoothly. The installers arrived right on time, and were cheerful and professional despite the terrible weather that coincided with their arrival. They paid particular attention to every detail and made sure that the cabinets were perfectly installed. I am a self-confessed perfectionist, and inspected the cabinets thoroughly, and I could not find any fault whatsoever. I am absolutely thrilled with my new cabinets. They are beautiful, functional and have completely transformed an ugly and unusable wall!! Thanks to Marty and the team at Markae!!

Walk-in Closet

So very pleased with our new walk in closet. It started out with the decision to do the closet ourselves, but once we started looking at the time and effort needed we decided closet pros would be a much better option.
Markae Closets was our second quote, so when Marty asked us what we wanted in the closet, I pretty much repeated the previous companies suggestions to him. Thankfully he showed us a major fault with the previous design and redesigned it while still giving us what we wanted.

Markae Closets has been in the business 31 years! They conducted

When my husband and I decided to build a walk-in closet we quickly came to realize this project was not for us. So, we called several closet companies for ideas and quotes. Since the 1st company gave us a design to accommodate our wishes for the closet, I pretty much told Markae Closets this was the design I wanted. Marty from Markae found several major flaws with the original design. I was impressed and most appreciative that he was able to help us avoid those flaws. Their pricing was also comparable.
When they came to do the work, they protected my floors with blankets and worked quietly till the job was done. They left my home tidy and clean as found.
Markae Closets has been in the business 31 years! They conducted themselves in a professional manner throughout our experience and worked mindfully to accommodate all our requests. They know what they are doing and their pricing is also very competitive!
Needless to say we are very happy with our new closet and highly recommend Markae Closets.

Banquette seating for Bay window

So happy with our banquette bench with 1 pull out drawer and 2 side storage compartments. Quality is A +. This was a custom job amd Marty really took the time to make sure everything was perfect. We have an old house so floors and walls are not level. He made the necessary adjustments. Family run business that really cares about the work they do. Very impressed. Highly recommend.

Kitchen and mudroom

After getting ashore from another company that came in too high I phoned Markae after reading good reviews and Marty came down within a couple of days. He gave me great ideas and even went above and beyond to help me with advice about other house issues we were dealing with. He was so easy to work with. I got squire within a couple of days and had them in to do my pullouts in my pantries , extra storage in my mudroom and a garbage/composte pullout system. We were super happy with the work and the installer was great as well. Would absolutely recommend them.

Re-Inventing a 2nd Bedroom

With Martin & Kaylie's design skills and assistance we were able to re-invent the 2nd bedroom of our condo. The work is beautifully precise and completely transformed the room. Bravo Markae!

Amazing built in wall units

We were redecorating our family room and wanted to have two built in units for the new room, to enhance our modern decor and provide us with specific storage requirements. We called Markae Closets to come to our house to measure.

Kaylie came to our house and totally impressed us with her design sense and practical knowledge. She made recommendations to us regarding height, width, depth, colour, style and even recommended additional components that we hadn’t thought of. We had other people quote the job, who didn’t provide us with any designer suggestions, and Markae’s price was lower than the other companies.

With Kaylie, we received two beautifully made white, high gloss built in credenzas that perfectly fit on either side of our ultra modern linear gas fireplace. When she recommended the high gloss finish, we were hesitant, but she was right! We are so happy with the richness of the look. The finished workmanship on them is beautiful and Kaylie’s plan of drawers, shelving and wine storage couldn’t be more perfect. It was her suggestion to sit the units on these beautiful tapered legs that she provided.

We are so pleased that we called Markae Closets for this project. They will certainly be our company of choice if we need built ins or closet organizing in the future. It is a pleasure to deal with a company that is professional, helpful and fair and delivers beyond your expectations.

Thank you Kaylie and thank you Markae Closets!
