I cant' do it yourself... so which of the custom closet companies are most cost efficient. I dont need wood, white laminate and wirie bins are fine.
I tried California Closets 12 years ago and it was several thousand then for just two small closets. And it was just laminate.
Could you ask if the box stores like Lowe's do installation? Maybe figure out what you need and hire a handyman to put it in for you?
I think labor costs are going to be your biggest consideration with a less expensive system. And that's going to be really area specific.
I wrote some stuff on this thread--I'm too lazy to repeat it, LOL!

I agree with Talley Sue, the "one track at the top" system is easy and the most economical.
