When I was moving into my apartment, I was concerned about lack of space for our clothes, linens, and luggage that I had stored in my former walk-in closet. It wasn’t one of those step-in closets either. It was as good of a walk-in as one could get in a home!
The closet in my apartment bedroom turned out to be sufficient for all our hanging clothes. I was able to store a bunch of miscellaneous items we won’t often need in the shelf above.
I thought the Ikea Pax Wardrobes would be a good choice for the rest of our clothes, linens, luggage, and my purses. The wardrobe is pretty heavy so for moving’s sake, I got two smaller ones vice a wider one. We had to replace our beat-up dresser so I chose an Ikea Hemnes drawer to compliment the wardrobes.
The idea to use the wardrobes came from this image I had pinned a year prior:
I loved how cute and organized it was. I especially loved that it had dedicated space for purses, jewelry, and accessories – which is part of the reason I decided on getting a wardrobe. I organized as such:
This is probably my favorite shelf! It contains my jewelry, sunglasses, and wallets. I copied the idea of displaying a store bag from the pinned image, but without the frame. I chose a Chanel one
Though I no longer had my beloved walk-in closet, I think it worked out to my benefit since I was able to have a cabinet dedicated to my pretty things! Did you find yourself in a storage dilemma when you moved? What were your solutions?
