I wanted to show you how I made the best use of the things that this closet already had inside…
I was dying to make this client’s fourth closet (1. walk-in clothes closet, 2. coat closet, 3. linen closet) into an accessories closet exclusively for shoes, belts, and bags. Since it’s a rental, the built-in cabinet below needed to be kept but I removed the one shelf and installed custom cut wood shelves up to the ceiling.
hnxing asks “There’s a Rubbermaid Wardrobe Shelving (which I also do not like, but can’t take out at the moment) installed in my closet. I have IKEA drawers and hanging organizers for my clothes which is working out nicely. But I end up putting my purses/bags on the shelf which you hang the clothes from. The purses and bags all lean against each other. I usually end up with bags on my head when I try to pull one out to use. Because of the wire shelf, I haven’t found a way to make them “stand” up on their own. Any ideas? Thanks!”
- there are shelf dividers for wire shelving
- use an open bin either on its side like pictured above, or right side up and pull down when needed
- hang the bags on hooks inside the closet or on the back of the closet door. just make sure the bags are empty otherwise the weight will damage the handles
- this is a nice option too
The Container Store’s Shoe Box. Clear plastic and stackable these can be used for so much more than than shoes; under the bathroom sink to hold toiletries, under kitchen sink to hold cleaning supplies and household item, for crafts, kid’s toys…
