What is a Custom Walk-In Closet Design?

Walk-in closet design

A custom walk-in closet design must fulfill the following three tasks:

  1. It must include a unique design that solves one or more organizational or storage challenges through improved space usage or increased storage capacity.
  2. It must incorporate an interior design plan that reflects the needs, style, and budget of the homeowner while also improving storage potential of the room.
  3. It must add beauty to the space through thoughtful layout, hand-selected accessories, customized finishes and elegant lighting design.

Closet Factory has been designing custom walk-in closets for more than 30 years, so our designers know how to create the perfect custom walk-in closet solution for any room or any space. While most DIY closet systems may work temporarily, a truly customize closet will last a lifetime, evolving with your needs while constantly bringing beauty, organization, and convenience to your life.
