This is one of the most frequently asked questions in our industry. Because many stores offer storage components that customers can put together themselves, a lot of people have developed a very retail-oriented mindset, where one full unit cost x amount of dollars. The difference between those stores and what Closet Factory does it that our work is completely custom, and as every unit we design and install is unique, so is the price.
There are 3 major components that play a part in the pricing of a Closet Factory unit:
1.) The size of the space. This will determine which components can fit and the amount of material that will be needed. In some cases, the size and shape of the space will also decide which kinds of components (hanging, shelves, islands etc.) can go into the area. Closet Factory designers take careful measurements so that they can fully utilize the space.
2.) The components. Every client we have is different; some like to hang as much as possible, others adore drawers or shelves. These preferences determine the features necessary in each design, each of which has a set value. When pricing, the designer counts the number of shelves, rods, drawers, etc. and multiplies each by their set price. The sum of all the different components equals the total material cost.
3.) The material. Not all materials are created equal. While we only use the highest quality melamine and veneers available, certain finishes cost more. As a general rule, the basics like white and champagne run the low-end of the price range, wood-tone melamine fly the middle ground, and anything with wood veneers hits the higher range. This is not to say that a unit in white melamine has to look basic and boring – there are decorative details that can add personality, like in this unit:
The designers at Closet Factory work closely with each client to not only create a functional, beautiful storage solution, but also to stay within the client’s budgetary needs.
