How Louisiana Custom Closet Builds With Any Funds

The American Dream is much more than just a house with a white picket fence. In fact, the majority of people believe that this term deserves some updating, especially after so many years of discontent and misuse. What if American dreamers don't want a 'fence?' What if they would rather have an iron fence instead of a wooden one? These questions hit the nail on the head: The American Dream isn't about having stuff; it's about having the stuff you want.

Customizing your home allows you to create the life you want, free from restrictions or unnecessary fluff. With total control over what, how, and where you put your things, the possibilities are simply endless. This also applies to custom closet spaces in the home.

The American Dream is often associated with the very wealthy, the very affluent, and the very elite. However, this is another element of the past that deserves redefining. Today, the dream of owning a custom closet is very real and very accessible to people all over the country. Here's how it works.

Why Custom Closets Aren't Just For The Rich

Customized closets tend to pick up a reputation of 'affluence only.' However, nothing could be further from the truth. Here in Northshore, almost any family can afford to build their very own custom closet, provided they are willing to do some budgeting first.

Budgeting for your next custom closet doesn't need to be difficult. Start by determining the look and feel of your custom space. This can be done with the help of a design consultant from LLC's headquarters.

Next, choose the items that you want to see in your closet area. Budgeting wise, simply factor in the costs of:

  • Drawers

  • Accessories

  • Storage Systems

  • Size

  • Materials

Once you know how much you are willing to spend, you can speak with your custom closet CAD designer for an estimate.

Ways To Cut Back On Custom Closet Expenses

Still not sure how you can make your custom closet the most cost-effective possible? Follow these helpful tips to get the biggest bang for your buck.

  • Look for ways to optimize your space without adding more square footage. Additional accessories and drawers can help.

  • Decide what you are willing to be flexible on. If you just can't back away from those walnut shelves, look to cut expenses in other areas.

  • Determine what you want built professionally verses what you want to do on your own. You may not be able to install a custom closet system by yourself, but you might want to add in cubbies or a mirror on your own time.

  • Build out your custom closet in increments. Start by adding something new every year, giving you ample time to save and budget for the next renovation.

  • Be honest with yourself about how much you can spend. The team at LCC will be able to offer a very accurate estimate, keeping you under budget and within the right timeframe.
