It may be tempting to think of custom home
storage solutions as being a niche market that only a few would ever really
need, but the best custom closets do so much more than just make an otherwise
ordinary space impressive and attractive. By maximizing the efficiency of your
home’s storage space, you ensure that you have ‘a place for everything, and
everything in its place.’ Keeping things tidy might not seem like a big deal to
those few of us who are gifted at organization and order, but for the rest of
us, an extra 10-15 minutes in the morning to scour the closet for that one
perfect tie or pair of shoes is crucial. Also, getting the kids ready for school
and out the door won’t be an all-morning affair anymore, and that is priceless.
with What You’ve Got
The best thing about built-in custom closet
systems are that you already have the perfect starting point in your home.
Whether you’ve got an expansive walk-in closet or a standard reach-in space, installing
a custom storage system can make your life much easier and your home more
functional, efficient and organized.
The best custom closet companies offer free
in-home consultations to allow their design and installation experts to really
get a feel for what you’re working with, and talk with you at length about what
your storage needs are. Whether you’re looking for a fairly straightforward
system of shelves and drawers, or want to really showcase what you’ve got with
custom lighting, display cases and cabinetry, a consultation meeting is the
place to start to ensure that you finish with something perfect for you and
All About Service
A custom closet system is literally
designed to make your life easier, but there’s no point in going through added
stress to get to that point. That’s why it’s important to choose a company that
put the emphasis on service and communication. By keeping you not only in the
loop, but at the top of the command chain, they’re ensuring that all the
important decisions are being made by the person whose opinion matters most:
you. It may seem like a no-brainer, since the only point of having custom-built
anything is to make sure the final product is tailored to the customer’s exact
wishes, but some professionals approach the situation with the mindset that
since they’re the experts, their thoughts come first, and the customer’s
second. That’s not how it should be. If they’re not willing to put you in
charge of the project, you shouldn’t be willing to work with them.
Ultimately, the best custom closets bring a
sense of organization, efficiency and functionality to your home. They minimize
wasted space, save you time and energy, and generally make your life easier.
They’re not only about storage. They’re about peace of mind as well.
