  4. Am I pressed for time and too busy to do it myself?
  5. Do I have difficulty installing things around the house and need help most of the time?
  6. Am I planning a complete closet makeover with custom pieces?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then you may want to consider using a professional closet organizer.
