Debunking 4 Myths about Custom Closet Design

It’s easy to shop online for a run-of-the-mill closet organizer, but custom closet design takes a personalized touch. Unfortunately, a lot of people think that it’s too expensive and doesn’t merit the hassle. But in reality, working with the right design partner makes it affordable and totally hassle-free.

If you’ve put off calling the Closet Works because you think custom service isn’t the best value, we’ve got some great news.

Here are four common myths about custom closet design, totally debunked.

Myth #1: Big-Name Companies Have More Choices

Reality: An independent company like The Closet Works has an amazing array of options.

Some people tend to think that the bigger the company, the more choices they’ll have. While some big closet companies offer lots of closet organization components, do you really want something that’s almost right, but not quite what you were looking for?

The Closet Works offers over 80 different finishes to complement your home. That means you aren’t stuck with usual choices such as two or three different colors and a dark or a light wood grain. Practically everything that you can envision, we can custom design to your exact specifications, fabricate with precision and install with a level of professionalism that’s hard to find elsewhere.

Myth #2: National Chains Can Afford Big Discounts

Reality: Smaller companies have much lower overhead.

This is a persistent myth that really should be put to bed. Some big companies do offer cheap closet organizers. That’s true. But there is an enormous difference between cheap and affordable. You want to get the best price possible, without sacrificing quality, personalized functionality, and great aesthetic appeal.

The overhead of a national chain can be massive. But smaller, local companies don’t have the same heavy burden. That means while they offer mass-produced and cheap, we can offer better quality at a much more affordable price. You don’t have to make sacrifices or bust your budget to go with a local company; in many cases the exact opposite is true. Plus, you’re not paying a share of local advertising and franchise fees that franchisee’s have to pay back to headquarters.

Myth #3: Famous Closet Companies are the Design Pros

Reality: The Closet Works designers create solutions just for you, not cookie-cutter choices made for hundreds of people.

Did you know that the Closet Works has professional designers who come to your home and work to create any closet system that you need? You’re not likely to get that with a national chain, especially not from a so-called discount company that’s based online. Big companies have tons of designers, many of them don’t have full workloads so they’re operating part time. Our designers are full-time and have been at Closet Works an average of 15 years. Their experience is paramount to the success of your project.

You’ll have an in-home consultation that enables your designer to evaluate the space, discuss your options, and leave you with a drawing to mull over in the privacy of your own home. It doesn’t matter if you need a modest design for a small reach-in closet or a jaw-dropping walk-in with luxury touches such as glass door inserts, rich wood and granite. We’re the pros who know that you’re just as important and unique as every other customer.

Reality: The Closet Works is local, and has years of experience in practically every type of closet design imaginable.

Put simply, you won’t find better service anywhere. We design, build and install your closet system in-house. That’s important because everyone on your team is connected. You won’t order from one company, and then have someone entirely unrelated show up to install your closet components.

If there’s ever a problem with your custom closet design, you’ll know where to turn — and you’ll never get an outsourced answering service on the phone. We have a service and installation manager whose sole function is to respond quickly and completely to our customers needs, no matter what kind of service requirements arise.
