We often get general inquiries from customers asking for a new closet or wardrobe. They usually use the two terms interchangeably so our team often needs to clarify what the potential client is really asking for.
Are they looking to redesign an existing closet with more shelving, built-in drawers, double-hand sections, and cabinet doors?
Are they looking to build a brand new closet? If yes, do they want to have the actual closet structure built and then add a “door opening” after the drywall?
OR are they looking to install custom shelving and cabinetry between two existing walls (otherwise known as a recessed space)?
Part of the issue is that people often don’t really know what to ask for. Do they want a custom closet? A closet re-designed? Or a wall with shelves, cabinets, and drawers?
To help with this confusion, we decided to do a deep dive into each style of project. That way potential clients can make sense of the benefits each of these storage spaces have to offer. Read on for our explanations, picture examples, and common terms used in each type of project.
