Maximize Value of Storage Space

There are several ways to maximize the value of the storage spaces in your developments. Look at the following examples and keep these helpful tips in mind. 
  1. A larger closet doesn't replace a properly designed closet. 
  2. Larger closets may waste space.
  3. Larger closets may waste your money and the home buyer’s money. 
For example:



10’ x 10’ closet with 34’ of shelving will cost 
100 square feet @ $120 per = $12,000
34’ shelving @ $5 per = $170
Total = $12,170*
(cost of closet components) + builder’s construction costs per square foot




6’ x 10’ closet with 52’ of shelving.
60 square feet @ $120 per = $7,200
52’ shelving @ $5 per = $260
Total = $7,460*
(cost of closet components) + builder’s construction costs per square foot
 

*Estimated cost of closet components + builder's construction costs per square foot. The builder pays approximately $120 per square foot for construction costs. 

  • A larger closet doesn't replace a properly designed closet – The 6’ x 10’ closet is a more effective use of space and gives the home buyer 53 percent more storage space.
  • Larger closets waste space – there are 16 square feet in the middle of the closet that can’t be used for anything. 
  • Larger closets may waste your money and the home buyer’s money – the builder saves nearly $5,000 by building the 6’ x 10’ closet and, at the same time, increases home buyer satisfaction because there is increased storage space.
