While I don't have any great photos of our old closet (honestly, it was too small to really take photos large enough to tell what was going on) I do have this one. Overwhelming, right?
I've got a lot of clothes. And shoes. And scarves. I may be addicted.
The square footage of our new closet is almost identical to our last, in a longer, rectangular shape. But I'm hoping with some optimization, we'll be able to make the space much more manageable. I've thought long and hard about what I want this space to achieve and how it can be better optimized for us.
Must Have's for Optimizing Storage in Closet:
- Lots of space for hanging clothes
- A tall space for long dresses and pants to hang
- Drawers or shelves for folded clothes like sweaters and gym clothes
- Shoe storage
- Purse storage
- Scarf storage
- A space for jewelry, sunglasses and other random pieces
So here's our plan:
Back wall of closet, view from door:
Left wall of closet, view from door:
We'll be building this all ourselves, so it's can be completely custom to our design. I'll have plenty of shelf space for everything from shoes to sweaters to scarves.
One of the ways I'm planning to make the space look more organized, is with some really smart storage solutions. Things like front-flap shoe boxes, purse storage and plenty of cute baskets.

So what do you think? Did I miss anything?
