@cutexkitty:  Check out easyclosets.com.  I was able to design exactly what I wanted, order it and then we installed it ourselves. It looked professionally done and was cheaper than other places.  I don’t know how it compares to The Container Store prices but judging from the quote you mentioned, I think it would be cheaper.

Have you considered Ikea’s PAX system? They have a digital planner where you can choose what you want and then they give you a price list of all the items. I am sure you can fit the elements into your existing closet space even though they are made for their external closets. I just tried it for the first time last night and mine wa about $1000 including the external closet pieces so I imagine you could build a similar layout for about half of that quote.

My parents used IKEA to deck out their walk-in wardrobe and it works perfectly.  Plus has the advantage that you can change bits around later if you want to.

From what I see based on the sketches provided, you don’t really have either a complicated layout or any “closet furniture” involved (both of which can complicate things, and add to the expense of getting a closet outfitted), so it really is a basic hanging setup

Therefore, I suggest that you take a look at Ikea OR Home Depot / Lowes.  They all have very affordable easy to install it yourself systems. 

We’ve been gradually retrofitting the closets in our home, and are quite pleased with the various Rubbbermaid DIY options available thru Home Depot

In simple terms, it is a grid system.  You hang a master bar along the closet wall (drilled into the wall studs), and then the down bars from it along the same studs… off of that you can hang clothes rails, open selving, wood shelves, or furniture systems (wire baskets, wooden drawers etc)

Not cheap, but a lot better pricing than you’d find hiring a Closet Designer and doing it thru them (ie California Closets etc)

@cutexkitty:  Mine was white and honestly the quality to me was just as nice as the professional closet companies.  I am pretty particular when it comes to what I put in my house.  It was about 7 years ago though so I don’t know what materials they use now.  Hope the sample works for you as that price sounds great!
