I’m excited to take you inside our home again…this time into my makeshift closet! Our master bedroom has an attached loft space, which is what we decided would become my closet/dressing room. We didn’t have any other use for the loft space and the existing master closet is fairly small. I loved the idea of being able to have a separate space where I could store all of my clothes, accessories, beauty products and more. I knew I had to put in some sort of closet system, since it was just an empty loft before. I ended up deciding on the Pax System from IKEA. I went back and forth and mixed and matched so many different configurations for the system before deciding on this exact layout.
I was pleasantly surprised by how easily everything came together. I’ve built a lot of IKEA furniture in my lifetime. This was far easier than building a dresser, in my opinion. I did the whole system myself in about two days. I’m pleased with how it looks and functions for me. You’ll see that I allowed myself ample hanging space, as I hang most of my clothes. I opted to put drawers in the largest section, which house my tees, camis, loungewear and sweatshirts. I’ve been pretty surprised to find that I have more storage space than I can even use! The drawers aren’t full and those shelves on the left side are impressively deep! I added the baskets to the top to hold my seasonal clothes – right now, it’s heavy knits, scarves and hats, and bathing suits.
I love how it turned out! It’s fun to have a separate space where I can store all of these things and have a little fun while getting dressed each morning.
Here’s a breakdown of the configuration for the system:
