Your options for outfitting a closet are now nearly as wide as your choices for furnishing your house. Years ago, all you got were poles, hooks, and shelves. Today, custom millwork is not uncommon, with levels of visual finish as sophisticated as any high-end kitchen or bath. Look for a custom closet company in Makefield to help you design your closet so that you can get everything you want in your closet.
If you have just completed your new home or have been living there for years, there are ways to maximize your closet space and we would like to show you how.
If you don’t say anything to a contractor, you’ll get a basic “pole and shelf” setup: a single pole with a fixed shelf above it. Then it’s up to you to customize the interior yourself. Typically built and painted on-site, this is the least expensive way to go.
The next step up is multiple poles and shelves of varying lengths and heights to accommodate different types of garments. Typically, the vertical partitions holding up the poles are used as the sides for adjustable shelving. The components can be shop built and painted on-site or, for a more durable finish, surfaced with melamine or laminate.
The third option is shop-built, prefinished wood, essentially furniture that is designed and dimensioned to fit your closet interior precisely. Custom-made dresser drawers, shoe cubbies, shelving, and partitions give you the maximum amount of storage but also cost the most money.
The quickest way to increase storage capacity in an existing closet is with a standardized closet “system.” The classic coated-wire basket system is widely available, simple to install, and inexpensive, but often has bins that are too deep to allow for easy access to smaller items. Garments can also catch on the wire shelving.
Supplier-installed standard systems, professionally designed and measured to fit your closet, cost less than a custom-crafted interior but are far more expensive than the do-it-yourself option. The upside is that they have true drawers, offer the maximum storage capacity, and have a more finished look.
The best way to achieve the look you want in your already existing closet is to hire a professional custom closet company to build your closet for you. A custom closet company will come and look at your closet, ask what you are looking for and take a look at the items you will have in your closet. They will then create a layout and once done to your satisfaction, they will build and install your new closet from start to finish.
