Having a cedar-lined closet built from scratch can be a costly undertaking. The next-best (and cheaper) idea: a modular closet system made from cedar.

Julie recently discovered Northern Kentucky Cedar, a sawmill and manufacturing plant that produces red cedar closet organizers and kits. Why red cedar? According to its website: “Aromatic red cedar is a non-endangered species of wood—its growth outpaces harvesting. It grows primarily in the eastern part of the United States. Its pleasant scent and a vibrant red color—left untreated will turn a silvery gray—have been traditionally used for cedar chests because of its natural ability to repel insects without harmful chemicals.”

Here are some of its well-priced offerings.

Northern Kentucky Cedar Closet Wall Kit

Northern Kentucky Cedar Shoe Cubby

Northern Kentucky Cedar Shoe Rack
