Smart Strategies for Building a Master Closet

Unless your house is fairly new or has been recently renovated, your closets are probably tiny alcoves with little more than a shelf and a pole or two for organizing.

Whether you’re adding a master suite, remodeling your bedroom, or just outfitting a large existing closet, you have an opportunity to upgrade to a modern walk-in closet that neatly stores all of your clothes gently and accessibly.

Expect to pay $3,000 to $10,000 or more for a large, well-outfitted walk-in closet, assuming you hire a pro to build the room as part of your master suite addition, says Castle Rock, Colo., contractor Dean Bennett.
