Imagine opening your closet door and everything is in its place; suits & dresses hung nicely on the rail, socks in its own sock drawer and shoes sitting neatly on the shoe rack. It makes dressing up in the mornings for work or an evening dinner party that much easier.
Custom closet solutions is exactly what it is, custom made to your needs, because closet organizations should not be one size fits all. And depending on your design and customization, the cost will vary. For example, do you require extensive storage with drawers? Slanted shoe shelves? Hydraulic pull-down rods?
In general, the price of a custom closet is calculated based on the size of your closet, material used to build the closet, accessories you choose, the finishes, and any details like painting, lighting& flooring etc. See how each category can affect the overall cost of a custom closet system.
