Custom closets are very affordable, which is surprising to many people. Comparing apples to apples can lead to some very similar prices for the best DIY closet systems. Our full-service package includes hands-on assistance from a designer, installation, unlimited style, and material options, numerous bells and whistles, as well as a warranty. You may not be able to choose apples from apples. Your design might have changed into something else, but having a price point can be comforting for many.
“Add as You Go” Method
Hanging and shelves are the best way to start your design. This will help you organize your clothes, shoes, and folded items. White melamine reach-in closets with drawers can be made for as little as $750. A small walk-in closet can be purchased for as low as $1500.
Once you’ve established the layout, you can decide whether you want to add drawers, baskets, or laundry hampers. You can use the “Add As You Go” method to add an item and see the effect it has on the price. After you’re happy with the design and comfortable with the price, consider adding smaller accessories to complete the project. We offer great options for belts and ties, jewelry as well as tall boots and robes.
“Plan Ahead” Method
Set a dollar amount as your goal if you already have an idea. For smaller spaces, it is best to have a range of a few hundred dollars and a few thousand for larger and more glamorous walk-ins. Another option, though less practical, is to set a budget that you can afford. This should be your comfort level. If you find a design that fits your needs, it will be possible to complete the project.
“Dream Big” Method
You are a Closet Dreamer if you’ve been dreaming of a custom closet for years and have been waiting for the right time or event, such as moving into a new home, a raise, or using your tax returns, to make it happen. You’ve searched Pinterest and Etsy for inspiration, and you’ve taken pictures from magazines. Perhaps a friend has their closet finished and you are waiting patiently to get your own.
