What’s on your wish list for your home? No matter how satisfied you are with where you live, every homeowner has a few things that they’d add if money were no object. Custom closets are at the top of the list for many people. According to a 2013 survey by Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate, custom closets are the second-most popular wish list item for home buyers in Generation X and Generation Y.
Once upon a time, any type of walk-in closet was considered a luxury. Today, it’s hard to find a new home that’s built without them. That means there’s room in the market for even larger, more luxurious storage spaces.
When you think of luxury closets, you probably think of things you’ve seen in movies or reality TV shows. However, these custom features aren’t just for celebrities anymore. You can create a large closet out of an unused room in your home. Add custom lighting and mirrors to dress it up and accent with storage islands and shelving to showcase your wardrobe. Choose a loveseat, chair, or fainting couch to create a space you’ll truly enjoy spending time in.
And there’s another bonus to adding custom closets to your home. Since they’re so popular among home buyers, your new closets will give your home an advantage in the real estate market. Not only will your home be more attractive to buyers, you’ll also be able to increase your resale value.
But the best thing about adding custom built closets to your home is that it doesn’t have to be expensive. There are tons of design options that will give you the storage you need and the look you want at a price you can afford.
