What Determines The Cost Of A Custom Closet?
It can be frustrating when you’re scouring the net for a custom closet, and you can’t find any fixed prices. How are you supposed to know what’s inside your budget if you can’t find the prices for what you need? Well, the reason there are no fixed prices is fairly simple. It’s because there’s a wide array of factors that affect the cost of a custom closet.
You won’t find a set price on a custom closet because the company that is going to do the work for you needs to know a few things about the project before they can give you a definitive answer. They’ll need to know the size of the closet, the materials, the finish, and this isn’t something that they can give without coming for a visit to your home.
Let’s go through some of the different options you’ll come across when deciding to install a custom closet in your home.
What Size Closet Are You Looking To Install?
First and foremost, you need to have an idea of the size of the closet that you’re looking to install. Are you looking for an A-list celebrity walk-in closet with all of the bells and whistles that come with it? Well, for a high-end closet with high-end materials you’re looking at a cost of roughly $20,000. That’s a big number.
However, the average cost of a custom closet currently stands at around $2040. So, you can see why a fixed price on a custom closet just can’t be done. When you’re looking at such a vast difference in styles, and size, of course, price fluctuations are going to come with that.
You need to ask yourself what exactly you’re looking to have done. If you just need a few additions to your current closet, the price could be rather low. You could also look into doing it yourself if you think that it’s something you could handle.
Is This A DIY Project Or Are You Hiring A Professional?
As I previously mentioned, the option to do the project yourself is certainly an idea. You will save costs on labor, but it depends on your capabilities and the size of the project at hand. If you have a good-sized closet but find that clutter is starting to build, you could provide some additions for around $2000.
However, if you’re looking to add some new walls, and create a walk-in closet, the cost could be around $6000. Again, it’s all about the project at hand.
If you don’t feel comfortable and want to hire a professional to install your custom closet. This is also an option. While you might see prices higher than if you were to do it yourself, you’ll also avoid costly mistakes if not installed properly.
A professionally installed walk-in closet can cost between $1500 and $3000. This is for a more basic style without all of the lavish high-end materials. It could cost over $50,000 for a professional to install a state-of-the-art walk-in closet.
You Can Also Consider A Professional Organizer
Sometimes the clutter can get so unbearable that you don’t even know where to start. From anywhere from $50 to $150 an hour, you can hire an organizer to declutter and help you throw away all of the things that you don’t need.
By doing this you might find that you don’t even need any extra closet space. Sometimes, the clutter has you believing that you have no room when in fact it’s junk that’s taking up all your space. This is another option to consider.
Maximize The Value
Whether you’re going for a more modest 6.5×2 foot reach in closet, or a larger 15×12 walk-in closet, you need to consider maximizing the value of your customized closet. There are a few ways that you can do this.
First, you should try to design a versatile closet. This means that you should have options that are customizable even after the closet is installed. With adjustable shelves and rods, you can continue to add-on to your closet.
You also need to think about the resale value of your home. This is why oftentimes it’s important to design a more neutral closet. If you go over the top, you might hurt the resale value, and turn off potential buyers.
Also, if your home is already top of the line, then adding a custom closet to improve market value isn’t going to work. Your home is already there. These are just different things to consider when coming to a decision about your home.
