Master Bedroom Closet Remodel

Before the closet had one rail that went around the entire closet. Additional storage space was not being used effectively above or below the rail. The clothes and accessories needed to be sorted into keep and donate piles and then rearranged in the closet with a system that offered better options and containers.

We sorted all the clothes into two piles; clothes that were being used went into the keep pile and clothes not being used went into the donate pile. It is much easier to find the clothes you do want to wear if they are not being overcrowded by the ones you don’t. And really, how many clothes do you really need! 🙂

We installed beautiful hardwood floors in place of the old gray carpet to really give the closet a finished and clean look.  We painted the closet white and added a brand new, and larger, ceiling light to brighten up the area. You are not stuck with builder-grade ceiling lights, and one way to improve your chances of finding something in a closet is to add sufficient lighting.

The light is so bright that I couldn’t take a good picture with it on so that is while this picture is dark.

We purchased and installed a closet system that provided areas for long and short hanging, pant hanging, shoes, drawers for additional clothes or accessories, belt hooks, and shelves. The system also included an accessory tray, which was perfect for storing cufflinks. Baskets were used for storing winter scarves, hats, gloves and other items.

We added wall hooks for hanging extra jackets above the area where the hamper was placed. The hamper is a 3-bag sorter to make laundry day one step simpler.

Every inch of the new closet is utilized, including the angled wall by the doorway. A hanger hamper for extra hangers fits perfectly in this spot.

By eliminating items that were no longer needed and by taking advantage of every inch of closet space, this closet is organized and extremely functional. Every piece of clothing and accessory has a home and can be easily found.

What do you use to organize your closets?
