Whenever you decide on any home renovation or improvement, you need to balance the cost with the value that it will add to your home, your lifestyle and your happiness. Having custom closets is no exception. Custom closets come with a wide variety of options and some will cost you more than others. With several closets in your home, you might wonder whether custom closets in every room are worth the cost. Here are some things to consider when making this decision.
Certain things like the sizes of your existing closets can’t be controlled. A master walk-in closet will cost more to customize than a small reach-in closet, such as a coat closet, a linen closet or your child’s closet. However, the accessories that you choose can make a big impact on the overall cost. If you need to save money, be sure to ask your custom closet expert for advice on how to cut costs without compromising quality.
This is a big consideration that’s important whether you are planning to put your home on the market right now or not. The fact is that the economy changes quickly and you might end up selling your house in five or twenty years. Homebuyers are usually attracted to houses that have a lot of storage space. In fact, it’s one of the primary considerations for some homeowners. Having custom closets might raise the bids that you receive or might be the one thing that tips the scales in your home’s favor when a potential buyer is trying to decide between two houses.
If you are storing holiday items in a guest room, for example, you might be surprised at how easily they’ll fit in your master walk-in closet once you have your organization system installed. You can also move your undergarments, hosiery, and other items stored in your dresser to you new closet drawers, leaving that piece of furniture available to hold other items, or not exist at all and free up space in your room.
From velvet-lined jewelry trays to tie racks to dedicated places to store your shoes and purses, your items will be able to rest comfortably without getting crushed, snagged or tangled. This can save you money on replacement costs.
Don’t forget that having an excellent home organization system saves you time and stress. Your morning routines will go more smoothly when you know where everything is. Only you know your budget and what your home needs. By balancing these considerations and thinking about all of your options when it comes to home organization, you will be able to make the choices that are best for you.
