What comes to mind when you think about building a custom closet for your home?
At first, it may sound like an unattainable luxury — a closet for as many shoes as you can imagine, perhaps, or for an abundance of purses. But custom closets can be incredibly practical solutions to real problems.
Picture a closet that actually has enough room for both your clothes and your partner’s. Imagine a closet with a door that can still shut even when your children’s bulging backpacks are in there.
At Visionary Cabinetry & Design, we believe custom closets are a great storage solution for families, not an expensive luxury. When it comes down to it, custom closets:
- Help you stay organized
- Meet your specific storage needs
- Guard your home against clutter
- Add value to your home
1. Stay Organized with Custom Closets
Getting organized is one of the, but how many of us actually follow through on our good intentions? In the mornings, if you rifle through clothing piles, scramble across hangers, and struggle to remember where on earth you put your shoes, a custom closet may help.
Having a place to put robes, shoes, jackets, belts, ties, gowns, hats, and more helps people stay organized and efficient. A custom closet — or, better yet, a custom walk-in closet — can help you easily store and find all of your clothes and accessories.
Custom closets don’t have to be just for the bedroom either. Our custom closet designers can help you build a spacious closet wherever it best meets your needs.
For example, we could install a custom closet right near your front door so there’s always plenty of space to hang up coats, car keys, winter gear, and more. No more running all over the house to remember where you put your winter gloves!
2. Find Custom Storage Solutions
One of the best benefits of a custom closet remodel is that the closet is designed specifically with your storage needs in mind. That’s why it’s important to think carefully about what types of shelving and compartments will be most useful for you and your family in the long term.
For example, if you have children in elementary school, a series of strong hooks might be handy for their backpacks. Even better, those hooks will be just as useful for scarves, purses, and coats when your kids leave their school days behind.
Our custom closet designers can create storage spaces not just for clothes, but for large home items as well. For example, if your family likes to host regular game nights with friends, you’ll want a closet large enough to store things like folding chairs, extra cushions, card tables, and board games.
Long-term planning helps you get the most out of your new custom-built closet. Our designers will discuss your needs and goals so we can create custom storage solutions for your family.
3. Guard Your Home Against Clutter
If you share your home with your spouse, your roommate, or your children, you know that keeping clutter at bay can be a lofty goal. Custom closets make it easier to guard your home against clutter.
We can design a family-style closet that has unique cubbies for every member of your home. That way, everyone can keep their own stuff in one central location rather than adding it to a pile. This saves time when you’re rushing out the door with your family and everyone needs their own purse, wallet, keys, sunglasses, etc.
4. Add Value to Your Home
Although bathroom remodels and kitchen remodels may add more to your home than a custom closet, you should also consider what will best serve your family’s needs. Also, solving existing storage problems may make your home more attractive to buyers in the long run than investing in upgrades elsewhere that, while lovely, don’t actually solve anything.
For example, if you know your hallways are tight or prone to trip hazards, having a custom closet may save you from more headaches than a new bathroom would. These add-ons become key interest points if you do decide to sell your house at some point.
