Master closet - Transformed



DH started working on this when I was in India. We had discussed doing something with the closet and I had done sketches and started a design in IKEA design builder to come up with ideas last year. Nothing concrete because we wanted to explore all the options. He did the research while I was gone and started building it.
Prior to this, we just had a single rail running all the way through with a wire rack to keep clothes. I don't think I have a picture of that but it's pretty standard in builder houses in our area.

It is DONE!! My dream closet is done.

This is the best possible shot from the outside. The right wall is completely mine, the back wall is his but there is some of my stuff there, the left wall is 50/50.



Right wall
My work tops and bottoms on the right. The main dresser has my indian dresses, night suits, workout clothes, t-shirts, jeans, etc. The thin side unit has undies, socks.
More work tops on the left bottom, kurtas etc. on the top.


Left wall
His coats & t-shirts on top, my sarees on bottom


Center wall
His shirts on top, pants on bottom.


There are 2 corner units that can't be seen easily in these pictures. You can see one in the first picture. Many of the drawers are empty and there is about 2 feet of space between the closet and ceiling where I'm planning on putting some baskets with seasonal clothes. There are few thin jewelery drawers that I can use. I have a few jewelery boxes that hold some of my pieces,

Well that was our latest project. DH wanted it to be a complete surprise but he needed my input LOL! I love the way it turned out.
