You might have seen custom closets in Tampa homes or even on television and wondered whether the expense is worth it. It’s natural to have that concern when it comes to any type of home improvement project. Many families have found that custom closets are worth the time and financial expenses involved. Read on if you are ready to learn more about whether this type of home renovation is right for you and your family.
Can Custom Closets Improve Your Daily Routine?
One way that many families find that custom closets are worth it is when they realize the difference they can make in their daily routines. Closet Decor & More, a custom closet company in Fort Lauderdale, has recently published a piece called, Top 5 Reasons You Need a Custom Closet. In it, they discuss benefits such as making your mornings easier and wearing more of your clothing.
If you are struggling with your morning routine, knowing that everything has a place and is in its place can make this time of the day so much easier. Simple touches in your closets can make a big impact. For example, a valet rod gives you a convenient place to hang the next day’s outfit before you go to bed. In the morning, simply get dressed without the stress of not having everything you need right at your fingertips. This is just one example; you can probably go through your routines mentally and find places where more organization would make everything simpler.
Can Custom Closets End Up Saving You Money?
You know that custom closets are a financial investment, but you might not know that they can actually save you money. When you don’t have a good storage system, it’s inevitable that some items will suffer from being improperly stored. This often happens in children’s closets and master bedroom closets.
If children cannot access and put items away properly because the hanging rod is too high, what do they do? They end up pulling their clothing down, stretching out the neck holes and sleeves. This leads to wear and tear that doesn’t even come from wearing the items. When they can’t put items away, they might toss their clothing on the floor, where it lives in a heap. Then they might step on it while trying to reach more pieces of clothing (that are too high). And the cycle repeats itself.
In a master bedroom closet that is overstuffed, items will rub against each other every time you rummage through the closet. You might lose a button here and snag a zipper there. Pants can become worn on the surfaces that touch the pants next to them, which makes them pilly. Belts and ties can slither to the floor and get crushed or wrinkled. Jewelry stored improperly will often get tangled and lost.
Closet accessories like cubbies and low-hanging rods for children and belt racks, jewelry trays, and double-hung rods for adults expand your storage options and allow you to keep your items in better condition. This adds up to less money spent on replacement costs and more money in your pocket!
Can Custom Closets Raise the Value of Your Home?
One way that custom closets can end up being very much worth the expense is if they raise the value of your home or cause it to sell more quickly when you decide the time is right to put it on the market. Even if you are not planning to sell now or in the next year or two, it makes sense to keep this in mind. Most people will eventually sell their homes, and anything you can do to keep up its appeal and value is usually a great idea. Here are a few of the reasons buyers like custom closets:
- Homes look neater and more put-together when there is a place to stash the personal items that the real estate agent asks sellers to put away. Custom closets provide the perfect place for those items.
- Buyers love storage space. Who doesn’t want a closet that is already set up to hold clothing, shoes, and accessories of all kinds?
- Luxury items indicate the pride of homeownership. As a general rule, people who invest in items like custom closets are also taking care of the regular maintenance that must be done around the home. This is attractive to buyers.
- Custom closets can give your home that little boost needed to stand out from the crowd. When you’re selling your home, anything that makes your home stand out is a benefit.
Can Custom Closets Turn Your Home Into a Haven?
Perhaps one of the best ways that custom closets are “worth it” is intangible: They can make your home feel more welcoming and relaxed. Without clutter on your surfaces, you’ll be better able to decorate. Even seeing clean horizontal lines and furniture without clutter on top of it makes a huge difference to both your family and people who come to visit.
