Owning a closet of any sort to organize your clothes and accessories is one thing, but curating your own custom closet is quite another - here’s why.
1) It can increase the value of your home
Although designing and building a custom closet is an expense, the finished product will not only make your life easier but can also increase the value of your home. Clever use of space within a room, increased storage for personal belongings, and ease of use are all attractive to potential home-buyers, especially those looking to move in without needing to make any renovations of their own. Personally, when I search Trulia for homes, I'm always drawn to the homes that have built-in closet systems. Why? Because I know how effective they can be in reducing the amount of time when it comes to searching for clothing pieces. Closets can be made to look modern or rustic depending on your preference and there are tons of materials to choose from depending on the look you are trying to achieve. If you’re thinking of creating your own custom closet then check out this article to find out what is the best material for a custom closet.
2) It will help you to de-clutter your life
One of the biggest reasons why clutter tends to build up in our homes is because we quite simply don’t have a place for it to live. Building a custom closet provides you with an opportunity to craft a space around the objects that you need to store, ensuring that each item has a home that is tucked away out of sight. Whether you have an extraordinary number of shoes, a habit for hoarding handbags, or a tangled nest of necklaces that need a home, they can be accommodated within your custom design.
3) It will help you to get ready in the morning
Unlike conventional closets that are often small, cramped, and poorly designed, custom closets allow you to organize your items in a way that makes sense to you, ensuring that you can easily find what you need when you need it and get ready more quickly. Built-in lights can help you to see even when it’s dark outside, pull-down rails allow for easy access to high-up rails and slide-out drawers help to make sure that you can see every item you own without digging through your neatly folded piles.
4) It will protect your clothing
Regardless as to whether you spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on your clothes, you need to look after them to make sure that they last. A poorly organized closet can cause items to fall on the floor, to snag on sharp edges, or to become crumpled when piled on top of one another. With a custom closet, you can make sure that all of your items have the space that they need to hang freely, helping them to avoid unnecessary wear and tear.
So there you have it - four reasons why you need a custom closet in your life. Are you convinced yet?
Of course, not everyone can afford to build a custom closet, and that’s fine too, if you’re in this position then the organization of the space that you do have just becomes so much more important. Here are some tips to help you organize your closet space.
