Custom Closet Systems

Are Custom Closets Really Worth It?

As a Tennessee homeowner, you undoubtedly have a mental or written list of projects improvements that you would like to have done to your home. It might include things like painting, cleaning out the garage, working on the landscaping, replacing a broken tile in the bathroom, and the list goes on and on. For each type of home improvement you take on, you probably evaluate whether it will make enough of a difference in your lifestyle or your home itself to make it worthwhile.

When it comes to custom closets, there are a lot of both tangible and intangible benefits that you might currently be missing out on. If you’re considering having customized storage systems installed in the various areas of your home, it’s important to gauge whether or not the expenditure is really “worth it.” Closets are, by their very nature, kept behind closed doors, so putting in a custom closet system is less visible than, say, replacing your kitchen counters or installing new carpet.

We’ve put together some factors that you might want to consider regarding the tangible, intangible, and financial benefits that go along with custom closets. Read through and see if they will apply to your situation, then contact Klutter Killerz to learn more and to schedule an in-home consultation for more information and a free design.

Tangible Benefits of Having Custom Closets Installed

When Klutter Killerz comes into your home to talk to you about having custom closets installed, the closet designer will create a storage system that is right for the types of items you want or need to store in any given area. The benefits don’t stop at simply having a place to put items away, however! Here are some more advantages that you will actually be able to see and experience.

  • Your clothes will last longer. Instead of being squished up against other items, each piece of clothing in your new walk-in closet will have enough room to breathe. Pants won’t become worn simply from rubbing against other pants. Your blouses and button-down shirts won’t have their buttons popping off after getting snagged on nearby items. Even your shoes will stop being stepped on and crushed. All of this can lengthen the life of these items.
  • You will stop running out of and throwing away cooking ingredients. If you are having a custom pantry installed, you will notice that you’ll be much more organized in the kitchen. You’ll find that you’re able to use up pantry items before they expire and that you know whether you have dried basil, brown sugar, or a can of black beans before you begin cooking. You will be able to see what you have and will have a system for storing it.
  • Your children’s wardrobes will suddenly grow. If you have a child who wears the same three outfits over and over again, having a children’s closet installed in his or her bedroom can change all of that. Once a child can see all of the outfits that they have, they’re more likely to want to wear different items. This can reduce the wear and tear they put on their favorite items while introducing some more variety into their day-to-day wardrobes.

Intangible Benefits of Having Custom Closets Installed

There are a lot of benefits that you will see when you have custom closets put into the various rooms of your home. What about those intangible changes that you can only really feel? Don’t forget about these important benefits:

  • Your mornings will feel calmer. When everyone has the items that they need, there is less squabbling and complaining. Your children will be able to participate more in getting themselves ready for the day, depending on their ages. You won’t be scrambling to find your shoe or to try to remove a stain that you hadn’t noticed until just now. Your days will start off on a better note than they currently are.
  • You’ll be able to relax more in the evenings. Most homeowners find that after a busy day of working and shuttling children around to their activities, they still have a lot of tidying up to do at the end of the day. Some, of course, choose not to do the tidying, but then they find it hard to relax when they are surrounded by clutter. Either way, having a place for every item makes it less likely that clutter will build up in the first place, making your evenings more restful.
  • Guests will feel more welcome. If you like to entertain, you know how hard it is to do so when your home is disorganized. You might feel embarrassed and your guests might feel uncomfortable. Custom closets minimize clutter and disorganization while allowing you to spend more time interacting with your visitors rather than picking up and scrambling around. A Murphy bed adds storage while also providing guests with a comfortable place to sleep.

Financial Benefits of Custom Closets

Finally, you might not realize it, but there are financial benefits to having custom closets installed in your home. The first is that you will be replacing items due to loss and damage less often. These expenditures can really add up over time, particularly when you have several closets in disarray.

Another way that custom closets can provide a financial benefit will come if and when you put your home on the market. This type of home renovation can lead to a quicker sale and might even get you top dollar. There are a few reasons for this. The first is that buyers often like to see extra storage space, and, put simply, custom closets fit the bill. The second is that buyers like to see that maintenance has been done. While storage systems are not routine maintenance, the assumption is generally that if a homeowner has put in improvements, they probably also kept up with less glamorous maintenance as part of the pride of homeownership. Finally, custom closets will give you a place to store boxes and personal belongings when you pack, keeping these items out of the more public areas of the home and making a better impression.
