The first thing we did to re-do the closet was to install Rubbermaid Configurations / Homefree closet system. This is the same system I have in my house and I really love it for its versatility to be able to maximize vertical space in the closet as well as its ease of installation (no cutting / complex measuring).
One thing her previous closet did not have was a lot of shelves, so we added an entire wall of shelving to the back of the closet for her seasonal and infrequently used items. We grouped like items (wrapping supplies, electronic accessories) into clear Rubbermaid bins so that she could clearly see them.
Lastly, we took Ellen’s idea of a shoe organizer and hung it on a side wall for commonly used items she didn’t have a place for in her condo which is very limited with drawers and storage space. We also labeled the pockets so she could easily find items in the future.
With two of us, the entire project took 2 ½ hours, start to finish!!
We’ll check back in with Randi in a few weeks to see how this design is working for her….
