Assessing the Costs For a Wardrobe Renovation

An organised wardrobe is essential for any bedroom.

Nothing is more frustrating than lack of space or items that go missing right when you need them. Without a logical system in place for your wardrobe, it makes it that much harder to find the right outfit for the day. Those minutes that are spent digging through your wardrobe can really start to add up.

If this describes your current situation, a wardrobe renovation is definitely in order. But one concern that many people naturally have is the cost involved.

Here we look at the different options available and how much you can expect to spend.

Do it Yourself Storage Solutions

Even on a budget there are simple changes you can make that can practically double the usable space in your wardrobe. This includes using a combination of hangers, shelves, and boxes to keep your clothes neatly organised. Other solutions include putting anything that is out of season into storage or even donating unused clothes.

The DIY approach is definitely the most budget friendly.

There are a number of storage systems available that can cost as low as $300 for a basic set-up with minimal features or well over $1,000 for a more sophisticated system. The cost ultimately depends on your budget and what you are looking for. Be sure to closely follow all instructions and have the right tools ready.

Professional Installations

If you have more to spare or have specific requirements that a DIY kit cannot offer, a custom solution is probably better suited for you. Working with a professional gives you the flexibility to create the exact space you want according to your specifications.

No two wardrobes are alike so this process typically involves taking measurements of your entire wardrobe and walking you through the different styles available. Once the details are finalised, the new cabinets are custom fabricated and then professionally installed. The cost for custom storage solutions depends on a number of factors from the finishes you choose to how extensive the installation is.

The quality for a professional installation is typically much than the DIY approach but expect to pay at least a few thousand dollars. Costs can be much higher depending on the features you want. Do your research ahead of time so you have a better idea of what to expect.

So which approach is right for you?

The answer ultimately depends on your budget and what you want. Another important consideration is how long you intend to stay at your home. If you plan to move in a few years, a complete wardrobe renovation may not be worth the cost. But if you plan to stay long term, investing in a quality wardrobe now can greatly improve your quality of life for years to come.
