cost of installing a walk-in wardrobe

As many of you know, Geoffrey and I have done a lot of home renovations over the years. In the past, we have bought, fixed up, and sold our houses every 2-3 years. Because we are continuously renovating, we try to save money wherever we can by doing the simpler jobs. Yet, there are certain things that we are neither experienced nor comfortable in handling ourselves. Some tasks are better left to professionals!

Installing a walk-in closet is one remodel that we know very little about. We have never been lucky enough to have a walk-in closet, but our house at the lake that we had built could have greatly benefitted from such a feature. Only we didn’t realize that we needed a closet in our loft bedroom until after we moved in. Once we did, we didn’t know who to turn to.

Are you thinking about installing a walk-in wardrobe? Where do you even begin? PriceYourJob is an excellent website that provides estimates, job descriptions, timelines and more for a number of interior and exterior jobs around your home. From gutters and chimneys, to windows, painting, wall removals, bathrooms, kitchens, staircases, flooring, and more! And of course, installing a walk-in wardrobe. (It’s one that I wish I would have known about sooner.)

Let’s look further at what is involved. The website states that first you must begin with a stud wall. If you don’t have a pre-existing one then one must be erected. You will also need to consider type of flooring, lighting, shelving, and doors, all of which prices are given. Next is design and useful information on saving space in your closet. There are benefits and tips listed on how to convert various rooms to walk-in closets, as well as alternatives to closets and how much they could cost. This is all finalized by FAQs at the bottom of the page and some sources. It really is your one-stop source for all things closet-related!

The prices are in pounds, but a simple conversion can give you an idea of what it would cost on your end.

Be sure to contact PriceYourJob if you are in need of a closet overhaul!

photo of the day

Screen Shot 2016-02-21 at 10.39.27 AM“[My father] harboured a curious theory about how to develop a sense of beauty in the minds of his children. Every time my mother became pregnant, he would wait until the last three months of her pregnancy and then he would announce to her that ‘the glorious walks’ must begin. These glorious walks consisted of him taking her to places of great beauty in the countryside and walking with her for about an hour each day so that she could absorb the splendour of the surroundings. His theory was that if the eye of a pregnant woman was constantly observing the beauty of nature, this beauty would somehow become transmitted to the mind of the unborn baby within her womb and that baby would grow up to be a lover of beautiful things. This was the treatment that all of his children received before they were born.”

happy new year

NewYears2016“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.

So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”

– Neil Gaiman

Happy New Year!

“Just a thin veil, between this world
And that world of beauty and love,
Just a thin veil that hides the view
Of our Spirit loved ones above!”
