Under the Limelight: Bright Storage Ideas for Small Apartments

Best Small Apartment Ideas: Studio Apartment Design Closet Makeover

This is a closet that wants to be seen. If you have a small condominium or apartment, why not try this — enlarge your space by removing the closet doors and install a professional closet system like the one pictured here that you can be proud to have out in the open! An open floor plan will visually make the most of a small space by eliminating barriers. Although it may require you to think a bit "outside the box," there is no reason why the closet space cannot be included in your open floor plan. The old walls of this pre-existing small, dark, walk in closet were demolished, and a walk in wardrobe system was created in the newly opened space. The custom storage system includes a task lighting overhang plus a special section committed specifically for the homeowners collection of over 300 ties. Doors with reeded glass inserts retain the sense of openess on one side of the system, covering two 14" deep pull-outs to display the many ties. The reeded glass doors also screen the neckties collection from everyday view, keeping the ties both dust free when not being worn but easily accessible and organized so that the perfect tie to compliment a particular shirt/suit combination can easily be found. A tilt-out hamper with wire basket conceals dirty laundry until wash day, keeping it unseen behind an attractive wood door. A large number of shelves organize the shoe collection, which is not as extensive as the necties. The entire closet system is topped off with contempo style moulding that offers a visual anchor to this dramatic looking closet.
