As homeowners continue to invest in renovations that yield the strongest return on investment, they’re increasingly focusing on what previously was a highly overlooked area: clutter inside their cabinets.
Companies specializing in pull-out shelving (that can help organize clutter) are reporting a boom in requests for custom-designed shelving solutions that address pain points associated with disorganization and limited access to items in kitchens, bathrooms and other spaces of clutter in the home.
When it comes to improving resale value, more homeowners are looking to renovations that address less visible, yet highly functional areas of the home. According to Remodeling magazine’s 2014 Cost vs. Value Report, minor kitchen renovations, which would include such upgrades as installing glide-out shelving, can deliver a return on investment of 82.7 percent.
“What people are quickly realizing is that by increasing their usable cabinet space by up to 50 percent with glide-out shelves, they are not only reducing physical and emotional stress by providing easy access to items, but also improving the appearance and value of their homes,” said Allan Young, CEO of ShelfGenie, the leader in custom designed, built and installed Glide-Out shelving solutions for kitchens, pantries, bathrooms and other spaces. Organizing clutter is king!
Overall, homeowners are spending more on organization and getting rid of clutter. According to The Freedonia Group, the storage and organization industry is expected to rise 4 percent annually throughout 2017, making it a $9.4 billion industry. The demand is feeding growth of franchises such as ShelfGenie, which after its inception in 2000, now operates more than 155 franchise locations in 22 states and Canada.
Offering homeowners custom designed accessibility solutions with slide-out shelves that are personalized down to the millimeter to fit their cabinets, ShelfGenie has remarkably high customer satisfaction, with the highest Net Promoter Score (NPS) of 68-69 of any company in home improvement and even higher than such companies as Apple and Southwest Airlines.
“We improve how people live and enjoy their homes by carefully designing each glide-out solution to address their individual storage and organizational needs,” Young said. “Our designers go to great lengths to understand each client’s lifestyle before customizing the shelving. Our clients tell us that interacting with the designer is a fun experience and memorable for having a solution tailored to meet their specific wants and needs. Every homeowner is different, there is no one-size-fits-all approach.”
