Owners, Inspired Closets Pittsburgh
Sandy and Leslie McKee
We bought our first home in Pittsburgh in 1990 and were determined to make every inch of it work for our family. Together we were able to think outside the box and bring practical solutions to life. We turned our love of organization and simplicity into a profession and a lifestyle. Our clients love our can do attitude, sense of style, and our ability to listen and make ideas come to life.
When we're not organizing Pittsburgh, we enjoy skiing, biking and traveling. You might find us hiking or building trails in the Laurel Highlands.
Our company’s roots are in the organizing industry. I started a nationally recognized organizing firm in 2000, and as a skilled carpenter and natural organizer, my husband, Sandy, began designing and installing closets for clients in 2008. Together we have been restoring order in the Pittsburgh area as creative problem solvers and space transformers. We have assembled a team of top designers and installers and have chosen to work with only the finest manufacturers in the industry.
Sandy has always enjoyed problem solving and transforming spaces. He is a skilled carpenter and natural organizer. He listens closely to understand what his clients want. He has a terrific work ethic and attention to detail. He is committed to great customer service and is an accredited ACSP designer.
What Inspires Sandy?
Having people really thrilled about the spaces we design and build!
Leslie is a certified professional organizer and coach and continues to manage one of the leading professional organizing companies in the country. She and her team have been restoring order in the Pittsburgh area for 19 years, and she uses that background when designing closets and storage areas.

What Inspires Leslie?
Making a difference in the way clients live in and use their home. Creating a local company that cares about simplicity and organization and seeing evidence of that work all over Pittsburgh!
“Great selection. Sandy and team took the time to review our space, learn a little bit about how we use our space and recommended what they thought best for our needs and budget. Results are outstanding…the look, the flow and the functionality. Install was seamless. Installers were timely and professional. Couldn’t be happier. Highly recommend.”

“If you are looking for a miracle, this is it. I reached out to Inspired Closets Pittsburgh to help me organize my living/dining space. As a family of five we were outgrowing our little house. But no longer! The designer was able to create a built-in shelving and cabinetry that is beautiful and functional. By far the best thing I’ve done as a homeowner and working mother. I’m so much more organized and less stressed. The designer resolved problems that I accepted as everyday annoyances, like having shoes on the floor and walking across the room to gather everyday items. She even anticipated needs concerning child proofing and holiday stuff! I now have multiple charging stations for electronics and my vacuum is at arm’s reach but hidden. Life is so much easier. I’m blown away by my experience with Inspired Closets Pittsburgh. Customer service was excellent. Installation was easy. Worth every penny. I recommend to everyone!”

“Best thing I ever did!!! My clothes are so organized & I can finally see everything I have!! It’s so easy to get ready, and everything stays neat & clean because it has a home. Installers were professional and really helped design the perfect fit for me!”

“My Closet is the favorite room in mu house! When people come over I show them my closet first. I wish I could put my bed in there, who needs a kitchen?”

“The McKees did an excellent job on my two closets. They were very helpful with design, using my ideas to generate a workable plan. They were timely with communications and ordering and did a neat job with installation. Overall, I was very satisfied.”
“McKee Organizing Service is great. Not only were they quite knowledgeable, thorough, and efficient, but also, friendly and timely. Their prices were quite fair and their work was great (from the beginning of the project to the end)! If I were in need of organizing services again, I would not hesitate to call them. Sandy and his staff have my highest recommendation!”
“Highly recommend! Professional services and people, great install and design. Sandy and Leslie took time with me to understand my needs and match an existing armorer I wanted to use. Love my closet – it’s perfect! Would definitely hire them again.”
“Any kitchen becomes a dream kitchen with an Inspired Closet pantry! Sandy carefully studied my cooking habits down to measuring the platters to design a space that put the food, tools and serving pieces I want to use at my fingertips. Good-bye storing pretty platters under the couch or on top of the closet where I never would remember to reach for them. Now everything that I need to pull together a quick meal on delightful serving pieces is at my fingertips. The kids no longer wonder where Mom has stashed the Easy Mac N’ Cheese or the apples. It’s all their right in front of them. Sandy’s pantry has freed up my counter tops and cupboards so that my kitchen can become a place to both work in and dine – finally! Thank you”

“If there is one word to describe my Master Bedroom Inspired Closet design is “freedom”. Through their closet solutions, I have been liberated from old-fashioned notion of storage, access and use. I see my clothing and accessory choices in a whole new way. While I have expanded my organization vernacular, I have noticeably trimmed the excess baggage from my wardrobe. Because I know where everything is, can see everything and can access them season by season, getting dressed, whether it is for work, court appearance, a client interview, or evening at the opera or spin class, all that need is at my fingertips. I’m able to make better choices about how I dress and how I want to look than I ever could with a traditional bar hanging closet. Thank you Inspired Closets!

“When my closet collapsed I knew I wanted to invest in quality closets with optimal storage and organization. So within 1 week of my closet collapsing Jeff came and measured our 2 closet spaces, master bedroom and guest bedroom, and within the same day had sent us his design ideas for approval. Within 1 week of design approval the closets were installed and I have not closed the closet doors since because they are so pretty and amazing! High quality, worth every penny, can’t wait to do the rest of the closets in my home!”

“This closet system is awesome! I spent a lot of time trying to get the right system for my outdated and nonfunctional system. When Sandy showed me his closet system and what it could look like and how functional it was I knew I had to have this system. In fact, I not only got one closet, but three! Sandy explained how the materials would be delivered to the house and he was there the next day installing it. Out of all other systems I have seen, the McKees are the ONLY way to go.”
“During the design process, Inspired Closets helped me come up with the designs for the closet that we needed to help organize our life.”
“My experience with Inspired Closets was great. From measurements to layout to selecting options everything came out exactly like it was described and pictured.”
“When you hire somebody like Inspired Closets you just weigh in with what you like. Inspired Closets made the decision making process really easy.”
“I love my Inspired Closet. Their four step process was easy and seamless. They got to know us and our needs, they took control of the entire experience and that was great for us.”
“Inspired Closets worked with my builder to design the four walls of my closet that would best fit our space.”
“Sandy was a great help. To me this was a necessary part of setting up my home. The process was easy. It took one day to install.”
“Sandy and Inspired Closets Pittsburgh installed a system to store my son’s gaming equipment in our basement! They got all the details right and paid attention to make sure cords and electronics were concealed yet accessible! Their team was professional and we couldn’t be happier. “
