I took some time off from my home addition before starting to search for a house and take care of my hubby after a heart attack, but now the addition is on. I’ve been researching closets systems and I’m so confused. I’d like some help. I’d like a list of all the systems out there and to know which are better and not too costly!

I hope I can make this decision by Monday. My wife and I have gotten quotes from California Closets and Closets by Design. Prices are approximately the same (Closets by design is a couple of hundred dollars more). One big difference and one question for you all
1. Has anyone used closets by design or knows of their quality/reputation? I know nothing about them.

Any help given let me know. I’m doing one closet but it’s a large closet (12′ long and 7′ wide plus another smaller area in the back where it goes around a corner (will be about 5′ x6′).
I’m seeing a lot of people LOVE Elfa, but I’m more into the wood and would prefer wood and not wire or plastic.
What about building some? Anyone do that who isn’t a carpenter? Would that be too hard to tackle for a non woodworker?

2. Closets by design is a floor based model so there is a bottom shelf/toe plate around the entire bottom of the walk in closet which looks nice (at least to us)-meaning more finished, cleaner lines (instead of having clothes hanging down, there’s a defined bottom) which California closets would charge a lot more to add (>1 thousand). Is a bottom shelf more/less usable than just having floor space? Is it nice/annoying?

I saw Kraftmaid. I think the wood ones look good but are they too cost prohibitive? Are they quality? I don’t see anyone talking about them? The site is a little confusing and I don’t see any offer of closet design?
I’m seeing a ton of BAD reviews about California Closets and Closet Factory and those also seem to be the most expensive… Closet Factory seems to be horrifying reports of people dealing with defects/damage, not level, poor measuring, bad customer service and poor installation and unable to recoup money for damaged items/lost service.
