Custom Closet vs. DIY Closet: Why Hiring a Closet Professional is the Way to Go

Closet organization is an essential aspect of keeping your home clean and tidy. A well-organized closet helps reduce clutter and makes finding your outfits and accessories easy. With the popularity of DIY projects today, it can be tempting to take on a closet project on your own. However, the benefits of custom closets designed and installed by professionals far outweigh any savings you may get from a DIY approach.

Why You Should Avoid a DIY Closet

Time: When you work on a closet on your own, one of the biggest factors is the time you will spend on the project. Building cabinets and shelves yourself leaves you stuck trying to manage gathering the right tools for the job, sourcing the materials for your project, and working on the project itself. By working with a team of trusted experts, you avoid spending weeks away from friends, family, and work obligations.

Price: While you will likely save some money on certain DIY jobs, we never recommend trying to do so on a custom closet. If you want to add things like drawers and other custom built-ins like pull-out hampers, it can be extremely difficult to install these without damaging your equipment. This can result in unexpected costs to your project.

Sizing: Working with unfamiliar tools will likely result in a few boards being off their measurements slightly. Occasionally you can hide small errors like this, but if you make any bigger mistakes, it can result in buying additional materials you may not have accounted for initially. Measurements made by our professionals will always be precise, and if mistakes are made, those costs to purchase new boards are not passed on to you.

Warranties: When you complete projects like this on your own, there are no warranties offered. Working with a team like Closet America gives you craftsmanship that is backed by a lifetime warranty.
