There are dozens of benefits of a custom closet. Some of them may be obvious (having more storage space for your clothes, being more organized, having a dedicated space for getting ready in the morning.)
Surprisingly, one of the biggest benefits may not have crossed your mind. I’m talking about the financial benefits of updating your closet space.
Having a large space dedicated entirely to getting dressed is one of the more sophisticated things you can add to your home. A large, bright master closet adds that “wow” factor that many home buyers are looking for.

Putting money into upgrading your closet space is one of the best investments you can make in your home. The up-front cost is typically dwarfed by the amount a custom closet will increase the value of your home.
According to successful New York City real estate agent Fredrik Ecklund (known for his widely popular Bravo shows “Million Dollar Listing New York” and “Bethenny and Fredrik”) the addition of a $15,000 custom closet in an NYC apartment upped the value of the property by $200,000.
That’s a 1233% return on the original investment.
Take a look at his reaction the moment he steps foot into a recently renovated master bedroom closet (and then imagine the reaction a prospective home buyer might have!)
Even if you aren’t looking to sell your home in the near future, if you’ve been weighing the pro’s and con’s of upgrading your closet space, this is just one more (extremely major) thing to add to the pro’s list. Your investment now will more than pay for itself in the future should you choose to sell your home down the road. And, in the meantime, you’ll have a stunning custom closet to enjoy!
