Archbold, OH (March 30, 2024) – Ohio-based Sauder Closets is thrilled to announce the debut of 20 new products for its line of closets at the Closet Conference and Expo in Chicago from April 17-19, 2024. Sauder Closets will showcase its latest innovations and product developments at the show. Expo attendees will see new components, new finishes and learn more about Sauder’s commitment to bringing top-of-the-line products to market. 

Aiming to further diversify its offerings, Sauder will introduce two new finishes for its closet line – Ashton Oak and Modern Grey – that complement its current finishes Glacier White, Spiced  
Mahogany and Slate Rift.  

Another major highlight Sauder will showcase is the change in its drawer design. Moving from side-mount to undermount soft-close slides, the new drawers provide enhanced durability and a smoother user experience.  

According to Sauder Closets’ National Sales Manager Chad Arndt, “Because we’re also a cabinetry manufacturer, many of the innovations we develop for cabinets can be transferred easily to our closets. Sauder Closets’ new drawer is a great example of that. We created a process for our cabinetry division, where we rethought how a drawer gets put together and then we built a machine to do it.  Essentially, we build a drawer with a half-inch drawer bottom in it and then it’s fully wrapped. It’s a very robust drawer and now the same drawer will be the standard drawer for our closets.” 

In addition to the new drawer, Sauder Closets will also show: 

  • New glass doors and lighting options 
  • Matte Black hardware 
  • New, modern tab style handles in gold, chrome and matte black 
  • New sizes/parts 
  • 96” tall uprights in 19” and 24” expanded depths 
  • New Hutch depths 
  • Adjustable and fixed shelves in 19” and 24” depths 
  • 96” tall doors 
  • 18” wide doors 
  • New MasterTrac® finishes  

Sauder Closets is also the sponsor of the Top Shelf Design Competition at the Expo and Closet Guru Eric Marshall will be leading a seminar on Sauder’s closet lighting systems. The German functional hardware brand Kesseböhmer, a newcomer to the North American closet industry, will be demonstrating their hardware innovations with a series of vignettes in their booth constructed entirely from Sauder Closets components. Check the Sauder Closets website for a look at all of these new innovations and a schedule of upcoming training events.
