Adding custom closet solutions to your home is not a do-it-yourself task. It takes some know-how and a keen eye for details to accomplish a truly custom closet. Most custom closet systems are custom built to fit the exact dimensions of your closet space so that you have plenty of room inside to properly organize your clothes and accessories. Closet systems come in various styles, finishes, and fabrics. The more details you pay attention to when ordering your custom closet organizer the less you will have to fork out for a professional installation.
Closet organization systems are available in wood, metal, or a combination of both materials. The average national price for custom closet systems is roughly $2,500, with many consumers spending well over that amount for a custom closet unit made of solid wood measuring 10 feet to 12 feet in length. If you opt for the more inexpensive units, be prepared to trim the wood to fit, mark and drill holes for all the various components and add custom shelves, organizers, and drawers if desired. On the other end of the spectrum, custom closet systems measuring hundreds of feet to two hundred feet in length are offered by custom closet makers in Los Angeles, California. These systems are usually designed to meet the requirements of those who are very large or who have a great deal of possessions to move around.
There are many custom closet organization options for small to mid-sized closets. Closet shelves and custom built drawers are available in both free and paid versions. Drawers come in several standard and custom sizes and can be added to custom designed units or purchased completely unassembled.
Another custom closet organizer feature is the addition of custom mirrors. Many companies will measure your mirror and create a custom made mirror for you measure up to a twenty-eight inches wide by twenty-eight foot tall custom closet systems. These are perfect for smaller closets that don’t have enough room for larger, full-sized mirrors. They can also be placed above or below a piece of clothing to help identify items when sorting through aisles. Mirrors can also be custom designed to display an item’s color or to match the lighting in a room.
One custom closet idea is to have built-in shelving or a sliding rack system installed that allows you to store folded clothes easily and keep them from getting tangled together. The built-in racks or panels can be custom made to include any number of drawers or cabinets as needed and they can be positioned above, below or in any other position you wish. Sliding doors can allow the convenience of quick access to a particular item while still providing an unobstructed view of other items. Built-in organizers can be custom made to show the latest wear or to hide outdated or otherwise unappealing styles.
The cost of custom closet organizer systems can vary greatly depending on the materials used, the size of the units and where you shop. The average cost of a custom closet organizer system can be anywhere from one hundred to five hundred dollars depending on the size and the quality of the unit. You can save money by doing some of the shopping yourself. While you can visit a local Los Angeles cabinet remodeling store like MLL Custom and simply look at units, doing so may not provide the best experience for you. For example, if the store does not have the style you want or if the color of the walls or drapes doesn’t mesh with your room’s decor, you will waste your time going back. Instead, you should spend some time online searching for different retailers that carry closet systems in your particular size or style.
