Design Software

Our Design OPTIONS

If you have a favorite design software, no need to change. We have the capability to accept designs regardless of the software you used. However, if you’re just starting out or you’re hoping to save time, we suggest the following two design programs that integrate directly with Sherwood.

Closet Pro Software

ClosetPro Software gives you the ability to market and sell more closets, period. You will be able to quickly design a closet, display it in 3D, and price it on the spot. It's easy to learn, without sacrificing any features.


KCD Software

It might be more of a learning curve, but once you get it, KCD is jam packed with great design features and easily manages complex wood systems.

Import corner gable orientation automatically

When using corner units in a design LiveStorage and ClosetPro will always set the shelf corner gable notch as a Right Hand. This means that if you have corner units on opposite corners of the same wall the notches will end up being perpendicular to each other. KCD software imports enough information so that in this scenario the corner gable notches will be parallel. Regardless of the software these settings can easily be changed once imported to the Online Ordering platform.
