Our closet used to be L-shaped with large mirrored doors. When we remodeled the bathroom, I worked with our contractor and a closet company and came up with this design.
|The view from the door-Unfortunately, we had to have|
the beam in the closet since it's load-bearing
|Kevin's portion of the closet. His shoe shelves are 18" deep, rather|
than 12" since his shoes are bigger than mine.
|My portion (I admit-it's larger than Kevin's portion). The plastic|
boxes contain my shoes; handbags are stored on the top shelves
in bags to protect them from dust; and sweaters and jeans are
folded and put on shelves
|My favorite part of the closet-being able to see my|
jewelry make it easy to accessorize
|Clothes are arranged by type (jackets, dresses, pants,|
skirts, tops) and then by sleeve length or leg length
