Walk-In Closet Design-Build Project
We are currently working on a walk-in closet design-build project for our master bedroom suite. The first step of the project was selecting a color pallete for the walk-in closet and painting. However, the biggest decision we needed to make was selecting a company to purchase all the closet organizer materials from. After quite a bit of research and tinkering on several sites we’ve decided to order our walk-in closet materials from EasyClosets.com.
We were able to design our new walk-in closet really easily using EasyClosets online design software. The first step was to input the wall dimensions of our walk-in closet in the program. I was impressed that the program allowed me to easily input our unusual room shape and dimensions. Once the room plan was finished it was really easy to layout and add lots of different organizers from shelving to drawers to hanging rods.
There are lots of different products to chose from. The nice thing is you can select some standard products from pull down menus and then customize them however you like. I found the whole design process to be very easy to understand. If you’re trying to design a custom closet then this is a site you should check out. EasyClosets offers several design options; you can choose from several pre-set room layouts or draw your room from scratch. If you need help they offer free professional design services as well. All you need to do is email or fax the room dimensions and they can take it from there.
Once I completed the design I called the 800 number and asked to have a design professional review our design. One of the design professionals reviewed the design and called me back with several great suggestions. I was really impressed that they take the time to review the design from a functional point of view making sure there are no conflicts in the design. After the call we made a few more changes and then asked them to send us the final proposal.
The final design was emailed to us with elevation, plan and 3D drawings to review. As you can see in the following images the proposal contains some really great drawings showing you what your new closet will look like.
As you can see our design focuses on two hutch units with drawers and quite a bit of shelving. This is because we have two large his and her closets in our bedroom with lots of hanging space. This closet will be used for folded clothing and bathroom linens.
In addition to the shelving, hutches and hanging sections we’ve also ordered several accessories. EasyClosets offers lots of accessories to compliment the design. We’ve selected a valet pole, slide out belt rack, some shelf dividers and a drawer divider for the hutch.
The proposal does a good job of summarizing the entire order. As you can see we’re coming in just under our budget of $2,500. This proposal actually will go up a tad as we’re planning on changing the drawer fronts to the Portobella drawers where are a bit more. However, we’ll still be under budget at $2,341.67.
