Most of us know that we own a lot of stuff! The average American home size has grown over the last 20 years, but most of us are still struggling to get organized, and find a place for all of things. Our closets are filled, we have messy drawers, scattered toys, clothing piles, and clutter all around. The struggle is real! Investing in custom closets is a great way to get your home in order. If you have been contemplating if they are worth the investment, consider these top five reasons why custom closets can add value to your home and your life.
Custom closets not only look great but they are designed to make your life easier. Being able to find exactly what you need it is invaluable. Have you ever been late for work or school because you couldn’t find the shirt you were looking for, or spent way too much time rummaging through the back of the closet trying to find an umbrella? Custom closets are designed with you and your family in mind. They are custom designed for the way you live, and utilize your home. Imagine opening up your closet doors and having a place for everything.
The customized closet design is created around the inventory of your possessions, your closet size, and how you use the space. Whether it is additional drawers with dividers, belt racks, additional storage for shoes, sporting equipment, or even pull-out hampers; your closet is designed for how you live. Knowing where everything is also makes it simple to put things away when you are done with them.
Having things in your home neat and organized will prevent you from buying duplicate items. Your family can easily see what is in the kitchen pantry, the garage, or mudroom, if they aren’t blocked by clutter. How often have you had to replace things simply because they are “lost” somewhere in your house only to find them a few weeks later underneath a pile in the back of the closet?
Additionally, without adequate closet storage people tend to get purge things simply because they are lacking space. A custom closet can solve this dilemma by adding shelving or drawers for you to store items that you might not be utilizing right now, but might be useful in the future.
Create Less Stress & Increased Productivity
Chances are you are not a messy person, but just someone with a busy life. When you are busy, clutter just creeps up and makes you feel overwhelmed and stressed. Your home should not add to your stress level. It should be a place of calm and solace. Routines should not make you feel harried. If your closets are not designed efficiently, it is an uphill battle to keep the clutter in control. When everything has a place you will no longer be bombarded by the mess, and can spend more time enjoying your home and doing what matters most to you.
An organized home runs more efficiently, and good closet design helps you accomplish that. You will be more productive and far less stressed when your daily routines are not taking longer than they should. For example, if you know where the extra sheets are stored or where your cleaning supplies are shelved, you household chores are easier. Time can be better spend on productive things other than trying to find what you are looking for.
Space Saving and Efficient
Custom Closets are not just for people with large walk in closets. A good closet design can make the most out of even the smallest spaces. Even if you think your closet is too small or oddly shaped, a custom designed closet can make it seem bigger. A closet designer takes precise measurements so nooks and crannies that might seem like wasted space can be transformed, and suddenly become useful and efficient in way you didn’t even realize. A closet designed for your home and for your needs can make the most out of the space you have, and create space where you didn’t even realize existed.
Increase The Value OF Your Home
Customized closets are something that you can enjoy and get value from while you live in your home, but they are also a great selling feature if you were to ever put your house on the market. They will command a better selling price, as a custom closet is seen as a luxury. Potential buyers walking into a well-designed walk in closet can envision themselves living there. They will never wonder if your home has enough storage space.
Homebuyers are looking for a home that is taken care of, and a well-designed organized closet creates an image of an owner that has taken care of and thought of every detail in their home.
Additionally, closets don’t suffer the same wear and tear as other rooms in your home so the investment can last the lifetime you are in your home.
