Closet Remodel Cost: Budgeting Tips for a Stylish Transformation
Closets are probably the most ignored part of any home. They are in almost every room, hiding behind a closed door. No windows, no family pictures on the walls. A simple, practical little space to keep all our stuff. When it comes to considering the closet remodel cost, most people don’t consider taking out a second mortgage — and you don’t have to.
The good news is that you can do a simple upgrade with a can of paint or stain. On the other hand, you can get pretty crazy and turn your closet into a dream showcase of functionality. We explored several options, from quick Do-It-Yourself (DIY) upgrades to completely custom designs with personality. Our name may be Dreamstyle Kitchens & Baths, but we do closets.

Shelving Options for Single-Shelf Small Closets
In older homes, closet shelving is almost all wood. Pine is the most common shelf material because it is inexpensive and easily installed. Closet shelving is also available in metal, pre-made units. If you have an odd-sized closet, wood might be the best option as the pre-made units are not available in every size.
You can find a simple 48-inch wide shelf with mounting hardware at your local big-box home improvement center for around $25 to $35. These durable shelves are functional but limited in the weight they can handle. The wire racks usually have a vinyl coating or a powder-coat finish.
If you prefer solid shelving, a 48-inch wide laminated shelf will cost between $10 and $20. They are available in white and various colors, including wood tones. If you have an odd size and a few tools, you can opt for a plain pine board shelf. A 6-foot length of 12-inch wide board usually is less than $20 and can be measured and cut to fit odd-sized closets.
Adding a shelf or two in a small closet can increase the useable space. It also helps keep clothing and stored items off the floor and easily accessible.

Custom Options Can Be Amazing
Custom options are available depending on how much you have to spend on your closet upgrade. Some minor upgrades can cost as little as a few hundred dollars. If you want to go all-out and have the room and budget, you can easily spend $10,000 on a closet upgrade. Closets don’t have to be just for clothes, either.
The closet remodel cost using a custom installer is higher than the DIY options. The upside is that your upgrade will be a finished project without you lifting a finger! Our professional remodelers will handle each part of your installation at Dreamstyle Kitchens & Baths.
