“We have partnered with Crooked Oak many times for over six years. We continue to work with them because they produce the high-quality work that our customers expect. In addition, we share the same business philosophy—to provide 100% customer satisfaction. They are competitive in price and Joel (co-owner) treats us the same way he treats his customers—always going the extra mile to make sure everyone is pleased with their interactions and especially with the finished product. Crooked Oak has the ability to design everything from simple closets using cost-saving materials to creating intricate and high-end millwork using exotic woods. They offer a range of services to our customers and I would highly recommend them.”

– Mike Swain, Manager, B&D Custom Builders

As a designer, I have worked with the Crooked Oak Team on many projects over the past 5 years. I can attest to the fact that they are very knowledgeable, complete the job in a timely manner and are extremely trustworthy. They have always provided me with a high level of service and have always been willing to go the extra mile to meet my client’s needs.

In addition, the stock and custom options stock that they carry give me the ability to mix the two choices allowing for more flexibility and making projects more economical. And, I must add, that they are just very pleasant to work with.

“I ordered a new closet system from Crooked Oak and every stage of the interaction with them was perfect. The final product is simply fantastic. I’m so glad I found Crooked Oak! Their professionals came to my house to give me an estimate of the work to be done. They showed up right on time; provided me with a sample drawing, made one necessary change, and installed the closet system on the requested date. I had previously remodeled my master bedroom, but when people see my custom closet system, that is what produces the most expressions of admiration.

“I’m so glad I found Crooked Oak and can highly recommend them.”

“I recently moved into a new house. It had big, gorgeous closets with nothing in them! When they finished the house the builder neglected to put any shelves, bars or hooks in the closets. We couldn’t put anything away, so we lived out of boxes. It was okay for a few days until the novelty wore off and after a week of misplacing items and rustling through wrinkled clothing, my husband, said, “That’s it! We’ve got to get organized, find someone, and get these closets done.” I searched the web for some ideas.

“We had used a closet company in the past but this time I wanted custom, not cookie-cutter closets. My dream was to have closets as pretty and functional as the rest of the house with a place for our clothes and storage for the kids’ toys. I saw Crooked Oak and was so impressed. They had lots of options and their custom work is very high end. I was afraid they’d be pricey, but I called anyway. Joel came out, measured the closets and drew up some plans.

Then I got the quote…great price and beautiful results.”

– Megan R., Chicagoland

“When it comes to custom closets, the guys at Crooked Oak were as nice and as professional as could be. After meeting with a few contractors, Crooked Oak came in well below on price and well above on quality. Through the design that they came up with, I nearly doubled my closet space and have been told that my closets will be a nice selling point when I do decide to move. They even brought out additional shelves a year after the installation — free of charge — when my closet needs changed. I cannot recommend them enough and have had three friends since use their service. First class all the way!”

“Crooked Oak is by far the best custom design firm in the area. I first started working with them over 5 years ago when I needed a walk-in closet as well as hall and bedroom closets for my condo in Chicago. Their creativity and willingness to work with me every step of the way made me return to them again when my wife and decided to build our own home in Northfield.”

– Peter L., Chicago, IL

“I like the fact that they customized to my exact specifications…our second project was huge when Crooked Oak built closets, cabinetry, a walk-in pantry, a laundry room and garage storage. They always keep an eye on the details from the trim work to the paneling to the door design. Also, their workmen are awesome – very meticulous, careful to keep the work site clean and safe during construction from causing any damage to the surrounding areas. They take pride in their work; are not contracted help, but an integral part of the Crooked Oak team.

“Crooked Oak also provides on-site adaptability so if something is not working out the way I imagined, I could make changes along the way. One example of that is when I was looking for a cherry stain for my office – the most recent project — and when I didn’t like what they had in-house, Joel (co-owner), created 4-5 variations for me to choose from.”
