Does a Custom Closet Add Resale Value to my Home?

We’re always on the lookout for improvements. Buying a nicer car, upgrading to that snazzy new smartphone and of course, making our homes look more modern and sophisticated. Whether it’s adding granite countertops or hardwood floors, there’s always something that can enhance your home and increase its value year after year.

When it comes to home improvements, an often overlooked aspect is organization. A home can have the most spacious living area, the most advanced kitchen or the most comfortable master suite, but if left in a disorganized state, can wreak havoc on your home’s overall look. That’s when many people opt to install custom closets. But can they too help to increase the resale value of your home?

Let’s find out.

Custom Closets & Your Home

Customized to meet your unique needs and budget, upgraded closets are the way to go for many homes. Utilized in the bedroom, kitchen pantry, garage, office or living area, custom closets make organization easy. Stylish and functional, custom closets not only add space to the home and keep you organized, they also help out when it’s time to sell.

Storage. Storage. Storage.

It’s a fact, everyone is seeking more storage. It’s not often that you find someone who is 100% content with their home’s storage situation, unless they’ve had custom closets installed. One of the most popular complaints Elite Custom Closets Owner, Lisa Pattenaude of Naples, FL hears is lack of storage in a home.

“Most homes in Southwest Florida do not have enough storage. It can be the nicest, newest home on the block and the number one complaint I hear is that there’s nowhere to put things, leaving homeowners to become disorganized, lose their belongings and lose space in the home,” says Pattenaude.

By installing a custom closet, organization becomes easy, as there is adequate shelving, drawer space, hooks, cubbyholes and more, based on what types of items are being stored in a particular location. Having this upgrade already in a home for sale drives up the price, as it is one of the most sought after things that buyers look for in a home.

Saving Money

Sure, upgrading to custom closets is an expense at the beginning, but would you rather rent out a storage unit month after month for all of the things that don’t fit in your home? Pattenaude also runs into this problem frequently and encourages people to take the leap and trust in an organizational system that works.

“Home buyers don’t want added expenses, so for a home to lack adequate storage is a major turnoff,” she explains, “Not to mention, with the multitude of options available, you can tailor your custom closet to meet not only your needs, but your budget.

Appearance is Everything

With a wide array of design options to choose from, it’s easy to make your custom closet look stunning. Since appearance is a main selling point in a home, having a focal point, like a custom closet in a bedroom or living area definitely tacks on some bonus points for a buyer. Having custom closets already installed in a home makes for a seamless move-in process and makes getting organized in a chaotic time like buying a house seem effortless.

Custom Closets: The Obvious Choice

There’s no doubt about it, upgrading to custom closets in your home definitely has its benefits. To recap, homebuyers are looking for the following:

  • Adequate storage space

  • To save money during the buying process

  • A home with a nice, organized appearance
