Custom Closets: Do-It-Yourself versus Hiring a Professional

Closet_Organizer_w_IslandThere are two popular options for building a custom closet.

Assessing all of the costs of building your own custom closet is an important step before jumping right into the process. Without a budget, and a plan, you could end up losing money, wasting time, and possibly ruining your space.

If you deem yourself a handyman and are considering doing your closet by yourself, there are a variety of cheap closet systems that you can find both online and in-store. Basic closet systems average around $100 while the more customizable systems will reach past $600. If you’re on a budget, consider that there are alternatives to many of the accessories that you can place in your closet like purchasing vinyl-coated wire systems rather than solid alternatives with painted finishes.

If building isn’t your forte, then you can always hire a company that will professionally install your closet systems. This route’s obviously going to cost you more money but their expertise and experience can go a long way in regards to your closet being mistake-free and sturdy.

The cost of hiring a professional installation company ranges from $1,000 for a basic system to $50,000 for the more elaborate walk in closet organizers with all the bells and whistles. Take time to obtain quotes from multiple companies if you plan on getting your closet build.

Whether you’re building your closet by yourself or hiring a professional to do it for you, it’s important to have a creative vision of how you want your closet to look like prior to beginning your work on it.
