Home much does a custom closet cost

Key factors that impact the price of your custom closet

How much does a custom closet cost? It’s easily the most frequently asked question and the answer is: It depends – mostly on the size of the space and what we’re putting into that space. When considering a custom closet, the easiest way to think about cost is a simple phrase, “more product = more cost”.

How much does it cost to build a custom closet?

Before we fully unpack the topic of custom closets costs, let’s first cover a few of the more basic truths.  All closets from Inspired Closets are custom manufactured to your exact specifications and are designed and built to your unique needs and wants. The board we use is commercial grade and will not chip, warp, or bow, and in fact, we warranty it for as long as you own your home. You can think of it as a long-term, furniture grade solution, which is why a custom closet from Inspired Closets will cost more than a mass-produced closet system purchased at a retail store and may cost more than other custom closet brands.

We also do not overdesign. What do we mean by that? As design professionals, we’re called in to help solve a problem and relieve a pain point. Where there is pain, there is vulnerability, which means a client in the hands of an opportunistic designer can end up with a closet that is truly more than they need or want to spend. Our designers know their role – to help you solve the challenge of disorganization and inadequate storage – and we stay laser-focused on the problem. This clarity results in a custom closet that meets your wants and needs while also respecting your budget.

How do costs vary between the different types of closets?

As the phrase “more product = more cost” would suggest, the larger your closet the higher the cost of the closet system will be. For example, a 12’x15’ boutique or room-size closet, which has room for an island with a solid surface top will cost more than a 6’x8’ walk-in closet that does not, and walk-in closet with enough room for a double bank of drawers, for example, will cost more than a 6’x3’ reach-in closet that has room for only a single bank of drawers. As you can see by browsing our Idea Gallery, costs of custom closets range from $1,000 to $10,000+ and much of that is determined by decisions made in the design process.

Closet Installation Costs

In addition to the physical size, the method of installation influences the cost of a custom closet. Custom closets can either be wall-hung, floor-mounted,  or a combination of both. One is not better or worse than the other, in fact, we design and install beautiful and functional custom closets using all three methods of installation. A wall-hung custom closet is just as it is described. The closet is attached to the walls of the closet and suspended off of the floor. Because a wall-hung custom closet uses less product, it generally costs less. Alternatively, a floor-mounted custom closet is one where the closet structure extends all the way to the floor. A floor-mounted closet especially one with base molding will give you a built-in look, and for that reason, some clients prefer the look of floor mounting. For those who love the look of floor mounting but want a cost closer to wall-hung, we suggest considering a hybrid custom closet where a portion of the closet is wall-hung and select sections are floor-mounted.

Most Common Design Features

Beyond the physical size and installation method, the design choices you make influence the cost to build a walk-in, boutique, or reach-in closet. During the custom closet design process, you and your dedicated designer will talk through and evaluate your need for various design features the most common of which are listed below:

The color of your custom closet is one of the first choices you will make. Maybe you’re trying to match the colors in your home, or maybe you’re looking for a bold departure. Either way, we offer a variety of on-trend colors, from solids to our True Finish colors inspired by the elegance of real wood grain.

DRAWERS & DOORS ASID Award-Winning Product

The number of drawers you design into your closet will influence the cost. If you’re trying to eliminate the need for a dresser in your master bedroom, then you’ll want to design more drawers into your custom closet which will in turn affect the cost of the closet. The profile of the drawer front will also affect cost. Likewise, the number and the profile of the doors you choose affects cost. You may prefer a more open design that doesn’t include doors and that would lower the cost of your closet.
