A closet filled with coats, shoes, and dog leashes.
 

Coat Closet: Before

This cramped hallway closet was in oblivion with coats, shoes, and dog leashes. The only existing shelf created a vast area of wasted space above.

Overall Makeover Objectives:
• Maximize space
• Assign areas for coats, shoes, keys, and dog gear


A closet filled with coats, shoes, and dog leashes.

Coat Closet: After

We created more space with shelving and compartments. Now everything has a visible place, and there is even room to grow.

What We Did:
• Built new shelf for bins and baskets
• Culled jackets to make room for guest coats
• Affixed key racks
• Organized pet supplies
• Added umbrella stand and rack for wet shoes (with plastic tray to catch mud)


A double door closet with mirrored doors.

Bedroom Closet: Before

This wide bedroom closet stretched the entire length of the wall. The mirrored doors overpowered the room and, because they were sliding, limited access to only one side at a time.

Overall Makeover Objective:
• Create an easily accessible closet with a softer look


A closet with curtains.

Bedroom Closet: After

Airy and colorful curtains replaced the dated mirrored doors. Hung by a simple curtain rod, these curtains give easy access to the closet and brighten the room.

What We Did:
• Removed mirrored doors
• Installed wrought-iron rod; hung drapes
• Reorganized clothing, shoes, and accessories
• Rearranged room to create sitting area


A cramped closet with no second tier.

Total Closet Redo: Before

In this cramped closet, an excavation was often needed to find something particular. The single rod was at maximum capacity, and the makeshift second tier (hanging from other hangers) left clothes tumbling to the floor.

Overall Makeover Objective:
• Reorganize space so all contents are efficiently stored and accessible


Bifold doors with cubby storage and upper shelving.
 

Total Closet Redo: After

New bifold doors reveal a highly functional space with a new tower of cubbies baring baskets of sweaters and folded shirts. Upper shelving helps store unneeded items like luggage, and the tiered rods keep hanging clothes from becoming a mingled mess.

What We Did:
• Replaced sliding doors with twin bifolds
• Installed melamine shelving system
• Replaced single long rod with three shorter ones
