The staircase railing is coming along and we hope to have lots of pictures of that for Thursday’s post, but today I wanted to give you an idea of where we’re headed project-wise in the coming weeks. We are very eager to get started on our master bedroom, but feel like we need to get a plan in order to tackle the closet first! In fact, it has been hard to get truly settled in this house with our closet the way it is.
It’s not a horrible closet. It’s a good size–bigger than a reach in, but maybe small compared to other walk-in closets. The picture above is making it look wider because it is two photos together, fyi. There’s no closet island happening in here. Ha! We don’t even have a ton of clothes (read: we wear the same thing over and over but feel the need to keep clothes we got in college) or fancy shoes, but our closet has no organization built in–just a few rods. It has been a struggle keeping it tidy and being able to find pants and socks and underwear and tights! I put a few baskets in place a few months ago and end up having to empty them all once a week to find what I am looking for. And right now our pants are folded on a shelf that’s covered by hanging tops. We’re ready to get this in shape and I, for one, and hopeful an organized closet will transform our room into something that can stay organized and clean, too. So even though our closet is rarely seen by anyone that comes into our home (well, except for all of you) we feel like this is what has to happen next. And I’m excited about it!
We’re still in the brainstorming and design stage. We’re thinking we’d like drawers, shelves and rods. Pull out pant racks would be dreamy. A place for belts and all of Chris’s ties. Ideally, we’d love a place for shoes that’s not the floor. We have mostly casual shoes, and I am not sure how they would look on shoe shelves or ledges. Weird? Out of place?
I’d love to know, what are your master closet must-haves?
