We have all been spoiled by the advent of personal computers. Software programs that range from simple to complex that deal with almost all aspects of our lives including business, school and home are available for our use.

There is even personal closet organizer software that allows you to design, layout and organize closets of various sizes in 3-D and standard 2-D modes. Doing so makes it easier to visualize on screen the various options like materials, drawer and storage closet sizes including arrangements even before a single nail is purchased for the construction of your closet.

Some high-end closet organizer software even provides the option to list the bill of materials required to build the particular design of closet you have designed including cost estimates. After designing and printing out the bill of materials, all that’s left is to buy them and build the closet or have a carpenter do it for you.

Aside from providing you the capability to design and print out the bills of materials, some closet organizer software go as far as providing the capability of a simple database system for you to catalog each and every item you have (including their location) just like a logistics information system. This comes in handy for insurance purposes and allows you to keep track of all household items that you use or that are in storage in the event that you need to use them in the future.

If you are planning to buy closet organizer software, take note of the following features and make sure that they are part of the feature set of the particular program you are considering to purchase. Most software companies allow the download of trial versions; download the trail version of the software you plan to buy and use it during the trial period (usually 30 days) so that you can get a first hand experience on how to use it.

Ease of use. Make sure the software is user-friendly and is easy to use.

Since most software programs run under the windows graphical user interface, take note of the graphics features of the program? Does it allow you to store pictures of the item(s) you would catalog?

How good is the company’s customer support service? Do they charge for support or does it come at no extra cost for a 1-yhear period?

How much is your budget?

Prices of closet organizing software range from $25 up to $200 from sources such as software retailers, home improvement stores and the internet. If your only use for closet organizer software is for personal use you can settle for the low-end to the mid-range versions. However, if you plan to make it a business and design closets for clients, it is best to purchase a program with the most number of features like layout and design, organizing including extensive photo cataloging and other space management features that will provide you the capability to get the job done for your clients.
