If you’re looking to make some changes to your home, there’s probably a long list of home improvements that you’ve been thinking about for a while but have never quite gotten around to doing. The best home improvements improve your living space both functionally and aesthetically and a custom closet certainly ticks both of those boxes. Different to many other pieces of furniture found in the average home, closets are actually a relatively permanent feature that is affixed to your property, and can reflect your personality and tastes. Superior Closets has been designing, manufacturing and installing custom closets of the highest quality in residences across Toronto since 1991 and our team is passionate about providing the best storage solutions around. If you’re thinking of investing in a custom closet there are many factors that you need to consider, some of which we are going to discuss below.
Custom Closets: Design Factors that You Must Think About
Closets perform an invaluable function in any home, helping to keep everything organized and, when designed well, offering quick access to your belongings. They are a feature that can offer real long term value and custom closets are well known to increase the value of a property due to their quality. Simply put, closets are a big part of day-to-day life and when investing in custom closets it’s important to “get it right.” The professionals at Superior Closets can certainly help you do that, but first you can start off by considering the following factors:
- The Size of the Closet – How big does your custom closet need to be? In order to determine this you also need to take a look at other design features that are located in the surrounding area. You need to ensure the presence of a custom closet won’t inhibit other features of your home and that it will be easy to access. When thinking about the size of custom closets you also need to consider what is going to be stored inside the closet.
- What Will it Be Made From? – You’ll soon come to realise that custom closets do require a greater upfront investment than standard closets, but this is because the materials they are constructed from are of superior quality (meaning they not only look and feel better, but they will also last longer too). Consider what types of material with fit in with the room’s general theme best. Would it be better to opt for a classic hardwood or would the more modern combination of aluminum and glass sit better?
- Choose the Doors Carefully – Many people focus too much on what’s inside the closet and not on what’s outside. The doors to your new custom closet are what will be seen most, since when you’re not using the closet they will (or at least should be) closed. The team at Superior Closets can help to ensure the doors you select fit the closet perfectly, and we can also help you to select a design that suits the existing decor in the room, such as the flooring material, the paint and other design features.
- The Layout of Your Closets – Everyone works in a slightly different way and you no doubt have your own preferences with regards to how you store your belongings. You also might need more frequent access to some types of items that will be stored in the closet. During our free onsite consultation we will try and obtain as much information from you with regards to how the closet will be used and then combine that with the floor plan of the room to come up with the perfect design.
The other major factor to consider is cost. Everyone has their own budget and it’s important to come up with one that is realistic for your situation and then stick to it. Superior Closets will deliver the best possible custom closets for the money you can afford to spend and would be happy to discuss your requirements with you today.
