Custom Closet Storage Systems

There are many areas of a home that can be remodeled or improved.  Most homes do not come with a functional closet system, so this area is usually top on the list.  Choosing to have custom closets installed in your home is a decision that can not only increase the function and organization of your storage space, but also add beauty and value to your home.  Closet storage space is something that is utilized differently per household, so it only makes sense that each home will need a unique and fitting closet storage solution to maximize its space!

It can be difficult to know where to start so we've put together some information on custom storage systems and closets. You can find out what to expect from a full service closet company on our Custom Closet Organizers Page.


  • A custom storage system can maximize storage space in a closet and help toward keeping a household more organized.

  • If a closet is large enough to accommodate a hamper or drawers for folded items and such, a dresser may not be necessary in the bedroom which will free-up floor space.

  • A closet storage system can be tailored to a space’s exact measurements, takes full advantage of all wall space with a unique design and appears professional, elegant and finished.

  • Custom closet storage systems can offer a variety of wood finishes, decorative options, accessories and styles to better match the décor of your home.  Just about any style can be accomplished to be as basic or ornate as the home owner pleases.

  • Closet rods and storage configurations can be fitted for different lengths of hanging items to make the most use of each space.  If there is space, full clothing cabinets with doors may be an option as well.

  • Full service closet companies provide wardrobe assessments, closet storage and design consultations, a unique closet design and installation.

  • Also, custom closet storage systems will add personality, elegance and function to a household which increases efficiency and home value.

Custom Closet Considerations

Our custom Closet Organizer Checklist may also help!


A custom closet storage system can range from hundreds of dollars to thousands of dollars.  The size of the closet, the intricacy of the design and decorative options that are selected when developing a customized closet plan will determine the cost.  A customer can always express their budget when working with a custom closet company to help manage the financial aspect of a custom-built closet project, but keep in mind that custom closet storage systems will cost more than other options because of the added benefits.


Custom closet storage systems are a large investment in a home and plenty of time should be set aside to weigh options, consult with a professional designer, budget appropriately and schedule the installation.  On average, from the time an appointment is set with a designer, a design is presented, a contract is signed and the install is performed, the entire process can take anywhere from 3 to 8 weeks total.  Once the project is complete and a customer sees the final result, it’s realized that it was all time well spent.


Again, one of the great benefits of choosing custom closet storage systems are the many, many options that are available regarding the style, color, materials, drawers, cabinets, configurations, hardware, decorative additions and design. 

It is a good idea to think about how you want your closet to look and function a bit before consulting with a designer.  The number of options can be overwhelming if you don’t have a style direction in mind; and if not, the designer can always help you choose.

All fully custom closets may take a few weeks or months from start to finish, but the end result is more than worth it.  Bedroom closets are a part of everyone's daily routine and since no two households have the same storage needs, custom closets are a perfect solution.
