Helpful Tips For An Organized Home & Office

Is IKEA Really the Best Choice for Custom Closets?

Oct 5, 2023

When it comes to furnishing and organizing our homes, IKEA is a household name synonymous with affordable, stylish and versatile solutions. From furniture to home accessories, this Swedish icon offers a range of products that cater to nearly everyone. But when it comes to custom closet solutions, the pros of using IKEA might not always outweigh the cons. Before deciding, it’s crucial to know the disadvantages of their closet solutions and perhaps, stick to wandering the Marketplace and their other products instead.


Limited Customization Options

While IKEA offers modular systems that allow you to mix and match components to create a closet, these options are confined to predefined sizes and configurations. If your closet space has unique dimensions or you have specific storage requirements, you might find it challenging to achieve the desired level of customization with their limited products. Cabinets Plus solution: Customization is our specialty, and we have a huge range of options to choose from.


Assembly Challenges

IKEA products are notorious for their “some assembly required” nature and assembling an entire custom closet system could become a daunting (crazy making!) task. The complexity of assembling various components, deciphering picture instructions and ensuring precise alignment can be frustrating and time-consuming, especially if you’re not a regular DIYer. And then, poorly assembled components could compromise the functionality and longevity of your closet. Cabinets Plus solution: What assembly? That’s our job!


Design Limitations

Yes, they have a range of design options, but their selection might not cater to everyone’s aesthetic. The fun of a custom closet is the opportunity to create a personalized space that reflects your style and personality. With predefined designs and a limited range of finishes, you might find it challenging to achieve a unique and tailored look that truly matches your vision. Cabinets Plus solution: The sky’s the limit! We have an impressive inventory of hardware, countertops, finishes, shapes, sizes, colors, add-ons and more.


Lack of Professional Guidance

Designing a functional and efficient custom closet involves careful planning and consideration of various factors such as storage needs, layout optimization and efficient use of space. While IKEA has some online planning tools, these tools might not be as comprehensive as the service you’d receive from a professional closet designer. Without expert advice, you could end up with a closet that doesn’t fully maximize your storage potential or suit your specific needs. Cabinets Plus solution: Our professional designers will walk you through the process and give you one-on-one attention.
