We also have a spare room in our house but since we still would love to have another baby, we didn't want to do anything in there for now. :)
Below, the left picture is my husband's as you can see there is a lot of unused space and a lot of things that are not supposed to be in a closet like games and computer parts hehehe, but that's a different topic. The right picture is mine and yes I also had some things in my closet that were not meant to be there. hehehe but as a small closet I think I kept it pretty ok. We even added a extra self on top to maximize the space.
So we hired someone we know that works in construction and already did our laundry room, another topic I will share with you in the future. :). I have to give credit to my wonderful hubby who was very active in this project and did a lot of work to make this happen.
With a little planning, here is what we came up with.
It's not a huge walk in closet but it's perfect for me and my hubby and our room is way more functional now. We had a huge master bedroom with tons of wasted space that we couldn't really do much.
So we started by taking the two closets down and then we started to build and do the framing, did the electrical part, added the drywall, etc...
So much dust everywhere, yaks, don't miss that part that's for sure!!! After all the building was done and the mess was gone, we started to paint. We even changed the colour of our bedroom.:)
So here you can see the system we bought at Lowe's, it's the called the "Closetmaid Suite Symphony", it comes with shelves and 3 racks.
We will use one of the outside walls of the walk in, to add a new TV soon. :)
Here are some tips on how we accomplish having an organized closet. I got these awesome baskets at the Dollorama, I had them before on my smaller closet just had to buy 2 more. We added two racks on 2 of the walls so we could maximize our space and we also added shelves on top of each rack to add even more storage space. My dresser and mirror are now closer to my closet, which makes it much easier now when we get ready. As for my handbags I like to display them nicely so I can see them and don't forget to use them. I also fill my purses with paper so they keep there nice shape and specially are not all piled up on top of eachother. I used the shelves that we got from Lowe's from that closet system and we made sure we secured it to the wall. For my shoes, we are going to buy some shelves at Ikea and build them in the extra wall we have left to add shoes and more accessories. I will definitely share that with in the future. I also need to get myself a small ottoman with storage space inside to help me reach for certain things that are on the top shelves. I am 5.4 so I think this is a must hehehe plus it will give me extra storage for extra accessories if needed in the future. :)
I am still working on it to get the little details finished but at least you can get an idea. So no matter how small or big your space and closet is, there is always a way to make it nice and organized.
