CUSTOM CLOSETS - ADDING VALUE TO YOUR HOME IN OTTAWA
A custom closet is not only a great addition for your dream home but it can also increase the value of your house. When homeowners consider renovations, they often focus only on large-scale projects like major room remodeling, but often a simpler addition like a custom closet can be the perfect way to transform your living space. Increased home value, customized storage space, functionality and a relaxed environment are all things that a custom closet can bring to your home.
Increase the Value of Your Home
You don’t always have to go big to add value to your home. According to the National Association of Realtors, the second most important feature to prospective buyers is a bedroom walk-in closet, with 39% of buyers deeming this to be a very important consideration. In fact, buyers even consider a walk-in closet more attractive than an ensuite master bathroom, with 60% saying they are willing to pay extra money for a house with one. Custom closets offer a great return on investment. Storage space is consistently the feature that people can never have enough of, so your closet will always be an attractive part of your home.
Customize Your Storage Space
Your home should be customized for you, and what better than having a closet that is built specifically to meet your needs? The great thing about a custom closet is that it can be designed with you in mind. Shelves, racks and rails can be installed at just the right height to work for you or your housemates. If you have a big shoe collection, you can add built-in shoe racks. Or, if you have an extensive wardrobe, double rails can hold twice as much as an ordinary closet.
Add Functional Storage to Any Room
Many homes come with only one or two closets, usually located in the bedroom, which is why custom closets can be a great idea to add to any room in your house. Custom closet solutions can be used to create a pantry for your kitchen, a storage unit for your garage, or a place to store outdoor wear for your front hallway. Storage isn’t just limited to your bedroom, and adding storage space throughout your home can be a great way to transform your place.
Make Your Home a Little More Relaxed
Good home design is all about making your home more relaxed and comfortable, yet that can be hard for homeowners who have a lot of belongings. Adding storage space is the easiest way to reduce clutter and make your interior a little more relaxed. Contents from wardrobes, cabinets, desks, and from other spots around your home can all be moved into your custom closet, leaving your rooms looking as good as they did on the day they were designed.
