How an Ikea closet system can turn a small closet into big storage

This is what you can do with the Ikea ready made self standing closet system. It looks small on the outside, but inside it provides tons of storage. Here is what my friend does with hers. She is amazingly organized and could be a professional organizer herself!

As you can see, she has included high/low hanging rods in one part of the closet, and on the other side she has included enough drawers to house her large shoe collection. She has her boots lined up one in front of the other instead of side by side, which is really smart because she can see more pairs of boots at a glance. Very ingenious!

    Hi there, this is EXACTLY what I need- Can you tell me if this is a free-standing wardrobe purchased from IKEA, or are those drawers and shelves built into an existing closet? Can you tell me the name of the components/system?
    Thank you!

      This is the Ikea PAX system which is free-standing but does need to be secured to the wall. It is completely customizable with shelves, drawers and many other add ons to choose from. Have fun designing your new closet and please send before and after photos if you have the time,. Other readers would greatly benefit seeing your project results!

    I love the almost see-thru drawers shown for the shoes. I can’t find them on the IKEA sight. PLEASE where can I get them? Cool idea! Thanks!

    Where can I find the drawers that you have the shoes in (the drawers are almost see-thru)? Thank you!
