About Rick Lyrek, Owner of our Twin Cities Closet Company

As a Minnesota family-owned business, we pride ourselves on the ability to listen and determine your specific needs.


In business for over 14 years, Closets For Life is a family-owned custom closet company that works with residential clients as well as designers, builders and architects to create innovative solutions for all of your organizational needs including closets, garages, home offices, media rooms, laundry rooms, pantries, mudrooms, Murphy beds, wine cellars and more.

All of our designs are professionally constructed, installed and customized to your individual needs. In addition, we offer a variety of laminates and styles that can be tailored to match your lifestyle and home. Almost all installations take less than one day, and since we manufacture our own systems we can turn orders around quickly. There are no pre-made parts or sizes, our systems are TRULY custom and cut to size.

At Closets For Life, we take as much pride in your house as you do. Your happiness and our reputation depend on it. Seventy percent of our business comes from repeat business and referrals from satisfied clients. You deserve a company who cares as much as you do.
