Kathrine’s hallway was already fitted with sliding doors, so the task involved creating a storage system in the space inside the wardrobe that tailored to her needs. She chose the top-hung click-in system in our new Graphite colour, which matches beautifully with the dark walls and style of the hallway. Top track wall-mounted shelving can support considerable weight and leaves floor space free and easy to keep clean.
The system includes gliding mesh baskets with dividers, which make it effortless to sort and organise accessories into separate categories. This means that scarves, hats, gloves, and small items all have a set place and are easy to find when Kathrine is rushing out in the morning.
Kathrine uses the hanging space in her hallway for the in-season jackets that she wears regularly. The closet rod is mounted directly to the click-in system instead of how it was previously fixed in plastic brackets on the wall, so, now, it can support more 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 essential to accommodate Kathrine’s impressive shoe collection. Each shelf has room for six pairs, making it the optimal way to store shoes, especially when 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 include those clothes she actually wears and are currently in season. We quickly saw that what she needed most was space for hanging up clothes, shoe storage, 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 original white sliding doors were donated and replaced with striking mirrored doors. Sliding doors with mirrors are always a great choice because they reflect the light and make a room seem larger. In this space, facing one another, they create an incredibly cool effect. A totally different feeling 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.”
