Some popular brands of self-install closet systems include ClosetMaid, Rubbermaid, John Louis Home and Ikea. Each company offers a variety of products constructed with different materials, so prices can vary.
Good Housekeeping indicates that when researching self-install closet systems, several factors outside of price must be considered. It is important that a product meet the specific needs of the present closet space, as some products seem to work better for specific spatial and consumer situations.
A closet system with instructions that are difficult to comprehend will prove frustrating for the consumer, as will a system made with defective or unstable materials. Some systems are relatively easy for the average consumer to assemble and install, while other require extensive knowledge of using certain tools and can take additional time from start to finish.
Some products are so large and unwieldy that they require more than one person to properly assemble the parts and complete the installation. And while some systems are aesthetically pleasing and well made, support and customer service for these products may be unsatisfactory, causing headaches for the buyer should problems arise in the future. All of these considerations should be made well before the purchase, as the most popular self-install closet systems can run from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars.
