Bill Rancic Teams up with California Closets to Design Customized His and Hers Closets for Giuliana & Bill

California Closets Utilizes Unique Living Space to Create One-of-a-Kind Design That Will Air on The Style Network

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. --(BUSINESS WIRE)-- California Closets®, the leader in custom home storage solutions and an authority in design, has been chosen to take part in the current season of The Style Network's Giuliana & Bill, which premiered on Monday, October 11 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, and will be featured in episodes beginning on October 25 at 11 p.m. ET/PT and airing through December. Viewers will watch as Bill & Giuliana walk through their initial consultation with California Closets owner Walt Burrell at their home located in the Chicago suburb of Hinsdale, featuring his and hers custom closets designed and installed by California Closets' Naperville franchise.

"We're thrilled to be working with California Closets. Our new home has an exceptionally unique layout, but that did not hinder the design team," said reality TV star and California Closets customer Bill Rancic. "California Closets took the time during our initial consultation and subsequent meetings to understand the look and feel that Giuliana and I were trying to achieve in our home and bedroom, and the result was perfectly tailored, exquisite and effective for us."

During the initial consultation with California Closets' owner Walt Burrell and the California Closets Chicago area franchise design team, the challenge was to design each closet to utilize the space in an efficient and attractive manner. Each of the two identical bare master closets was ripe for creative inspiration. California Closets' brand new product line, the Lago® Venetian Wenge Finish, a near-black, sleek color, was installed in both closets. Bill's closet included a number of accessories including garment rods for his collection of suits, belt racks, and a tie rack. Giuliana wanted a touch of glamour, so she chose a pull-out mirror that tucks neatly into the system when not in use. Most importantly, there's plenty of shelving for her vast shoe collection. Each closet also contains a beautiful 63"x34" island, each of which holds ten drawers, including a jewelry drawer, hamper and a marble top, perfect for packing and folding clothes.

"When we first learned of Bill and Giuliana's request to work with California Closets, we were beyond excited," said California Closets Chicago area franchise owner Walt Burrell. "Their new home and its unique structure was ripe with possibilities. Due to creative collaboration and sharing of ideas, we were able to maximize the space they had and create a customized solution with which both husband and wife were pleased. The closets are beautiful, as is the house. All of us here at California Closets in Chicago have enjoyed working with Bill and Giuliana and the entire group at The Style Network."

Bill and Giuliana first learned about California Closets from her work with "E! News", which prompted the couple to reach out to California Closets. They decided to take the opportunity to tape their closet makeover for their reality TV show, and they are keen to show off their new digs during their initial consultation on The Style Network as well as their move-in segment and home reveal later in the season. With the main showroom located in Naperville, IL, at Naperville Crossings, California Closets has multiple locations throughout the Chicagoland area, including Lombard, the Geneva Commons shopping mall, in Glenview near ABT Electronics, and downtown Chicago in the River North area.

Season three of Giuliana & Bill premiered on October 11 and airs Mondays at 11 p.m. ET/PT on The Style Network.
