Inside Our Home: My Closet

I’m excited to take you inside our home again…this time into my makeshift closet! Our master bedroom has an attached loft space, which is what we decided would become my closet/dressing room. We didn’t have any other use for the loft space and the existing master closet is fairly small. I loved the idea of being able to have a separate space where I could store all of my clothes, accessories, beauty products and more. I knew I had to put in some sort of closet system, since it was just an empty loft before. I ended up deciding on the Pax System from IKEA. I went back and forth and mixed and matched so many different configurations for the system before deciding on this exact layout.

I was pleasantly surprised by how easily everything came together. I’ve built a lot of IKEA furniture in my lifetime. This was far easier than building a dresser, in my opinion. I did the whole system myself in about two days. I’m pleased with how it looks and functions for me. You’ll see that I allowed myself ample hanging space, as I hang most of my clothes. I opted to put drawers in the largest section, which house my tees, camis, loungewear and sweatshirts. I’ve been pretty surprised to find that I have more storage space than I can even use! The drawers aren’t full and those shelves on the left side are impressively deep! I added the baskets to the top to hold my seasonal clothes – right now, it’s heavy knits, scarves and hats, and bathing suits.

I love how it turned out! It’s fun to have a separate space where I can store all of these things and have a little fun while getting dressed each morning.

    Looks so nice & organized! I'm so jealous of your shoe storage. My fiancé and I live in a 650 sq foot shoebox right now, so optimizing space is key for us. I actually took your advice from a couple blog posts ago and bought some velvet hangers! I'm obsessed. Great job on your closet!!
