Kathrine’s hallway was already fitted with sliding doors, so the task involved creating a storage system tailored to that space and her needs. She chose the top-hung click-in system in our new Graphite colour, which matches very well with the dark walls and style of the hallway. Top track wall-mounted shelving is able to carry considerable weight and leaves floor space free and easy to vacuum clean.
The system includes gliding mesh baskets with dividers, which make it easy to sort and organise accessories into separate categories. This means that scarves, hats, gloves and small items all have a fixed place and are simple to find when Kathrine is rushing out in the morning.
Kathrine uses the hanging space in the hallway for the in-season jackets that she wears regularly. The new closet rod is mounted to the click-in system, instead of previously resting on plastic brackets screwed to the wall. The closet rod can now carry a heavier weight and be adjusted to a practical height.
Wire shelves are worth their weight in gold in the hall! They stand up to knocks and bumps and can be wiped clean when they get dirty from footwear. Their wire design allows you to see what’s on the top shelves, making it much easier to keep track of where things are. Kathrine stores her hats and summer shoes on the top wire shelf. A practical way to maximise space up to the ceiling is to move shoes up and down the shelves in the wardrobe according to the season, if you can’t or don’t want to store them elsewhere.
One essential feature was the gliding shoe shelves which were needed to accommodate Kathrine’s impressive shoe collection. Each shelf has room for six pairs, making it the best way to store shoes, especially if space is limited.
Waving her hands and with a resigned look on her face, Kathrine tells us.
“This wardrobe is filled to the brim and so cluttered that I’ve given up on it completely. I try to squeeze things in where they’ll fit and then it’s impossible to find them when I need them again. I now realise that I have an incredible amount of clothes, half of which I don’t wear. I’m so busy all the time that I’ve been putting off the task of clearing and organising the wardrobe for too long,” she explains.
Kathrine’s wardrobe now only houses the clothes she actually wears and which are in season. We quickly saw that what she needed most was space for hanging up clothes, shoe storage and drawers for trousers, tops and training gear.
Gliding mesh shoe shelves with room for six pairs of shoes are perfect for Kathrine’s impressive high-heel collection.
Gliding mesh baskets with dividers are the key to keeping tops, sweaters and t-shirts organised and tidy. These items should be folded into squares and stacked one behind the other so they’re simple to see and easy to access. And the more you stack, the neater it looks!
The white sliding doors were given away and replaced with striking mirrored doors. Sliding doors with mirrors are always a great choice because they reflect the light and make a room feel bigger. In this space, facing one another, they create an incredibly cool effect. A totally different feel to how it was before with those plain white doors. They’ve really opened up the space!
When the system had been fitted, the doors were in place, her shoes lined up and clothes neatly packed in the mesh baskets like files in a filing cabinet, Kathrine was jumping for joy.
“It’s simply amazing! I love the way the mirrors make the space feel much bigger and reflect lots of light from both the bedroom and the bathroom.”
