How Expensive Are Custom Closets?
If you are looking for a way to make your daily life easier, one popular option is to have custom closets installed. Closets help you to organize clothes, shoes, pantry items, linens, and much more. Are you wondering how much custom closets cost? If so, you are not alone; many Arizona families have exactly that concern. When having a custom closet installed, there are several ideas to keep in mind that will help you stick to your budget while also getting the storage system that will work best for you.
General Factors to Consider
When your Dream Closets installer comes to your home for your consultation appointment, he or she will work with you to determine what type of closet system will meet your needs and also work with your budget. While neither of these is an absolute rule and there will be exceptions, here are two things to keep in mind:
The simpler your closet design, the less it will cost. In general, if you choose a closet system with basic components such as hanging rods, shelves, and a few accessories, the cost will remain fairly low. Once you begin adding more specialized closet accessories, higher-end finishes, and things like closet cabinets, the price will rise.
The larger the closet, the more it will cost. A large walk-in closet is usually going to cost more to customize than a smaller reach-in closet. In most cases, the quantity of materials as well as the hours of labor increase when a closet is larger.
Remember that at Dream Closets, we design closets for all budgets. Whether you are looking for a more economical storage system or a luxurious custom closet, we can design, build, and install the products you need and want.
A Free Design Appointment Will Determine Your Final Cost
Since every closet that Dream Closets builds is unique and designed for the people who will be using it, we can’t give a price quote in a blog post. There are just too many factors to consider, from the size and shape of your closet to the accessories you need to the finishes and details that you choose. So for that reason, we offer a free consultation appointment that includes a custom closet design on our 3D software.
What this means is that when you contact us, we will schedule you for your in-home consultation. A professional closet designer will go to your house to get to know you, to measure your space, and to design the closet system that will work for you. Since we use 3D software, you will be able to watch your design unfold and make changes along the way. Try out different finishes, remove some shelving, put drawers in their place, and so on. We will collaborate to ensure that your closet system is exactly what you want and need. Once you are satisfied with the design, we will give you a price quote and save it in our system.
From there, you can book your installation appointment once you decide that you want to go ahead. There are no surprises here: You will already know the cost and you will already know exactly what you are getting in terms of components, accessories, and finishes. It’s that simple!
Financial Benefits to Having Custom Closets Installed
You will already know how much your custom closet will cost, but once you have your closets installed, you might be surprised at how they can save you money. Here are some of the ways:
You won’t have to replace damaged items as often. When you look at the clothing that you’ve had for a while, it’s likely that you see some signs of wear and tear. Did you know, however, that not all of that damage has come from you wearing the items? Some of it might have come from improper storage. Hanging sweaters on hangers, storing button-down shirts so they are crushed together, and putting neckties over regular hangers can cause damage such as pulled shoulders, lost buttons, and permanent wrinkles. When you have the right closet components and you have more space to store your items, you won’t experience this type of damage.
You will stop losing items. If you’ve ever looked in vain for a specific pair of shoes and finally re-purchased them, assuming that you must have lost them while on a business trip or vacation, then found them in the recesses of your closet a week after buying their replacement, you understand the frustration of this situation. When a closet is disorganized, it is easy to lose track of items. A better organization system can lead to less loss over time, which leads to less money spent on replacements.
You might find it easier to sell your home. This is something that depends on the local market at the time that you list your house, but in general, buyers are attracted to well-organized homes with plenty of closet space. Talk to a real estate agent in your area to learn about whether your custom closets can warrant a higher listing price.
