The Ultimate Guide to Custom Closets

When it comes to home improvement and home organization, the word “custom” can mean so many things. At Inspired Closets, custom means designed for a particular customer – you. We create custom closets and custom storage and organization solutions that are designed to meet your individual needs and how you live and function in your home. Nothing we do is ever “cookie-cutter”.

According to clients, our version of custom can feel pretty life-changing. That’s what happens when we listen to your needs and wants, assess your current closet space, and blend your current closet reality with our many years of experience designing custom closet systems. We know we’ve succeeded when you feel that little shriek of excitement or a relaxing exhale every time you open the door to the custom closet space that was designed uniquely for you. We call that the “I love my closet” feeling and it’s what motivates us to do what we do.

4 Tips for Mastering Men's Closet Organization

So while a reach-in closet can be as fast as half a day to a full day, a walk-in closet typically takes a day or two, and a room-size boutique closet can take three to four days to complete.
