In collaboration with IKEA
The open closet concept is gaining in popularity. Already some time ago I had considered replacing my old closet with an open one. The benefits are obvious – you can see your clothes at first sight and so it is easier to keep order and choose an outfit. In search of a suitable cabinet system, I came across the PAX system from IKEA.
The PAX system offers countless possibilities and can be easily adapted to your own needs and the conditions of your room. With the PAX planner I designed my closet first – until I had put together the perfect closet for me. Since my room is not that big, I decided to add a corner closet. A space saving option. Of course, it is also important to think about how much space you need for which clothing category. I decided to hang clothes, blouses and blazers on a clothes rail. For pants and skirts shelves. Everything else, such as sweaters, T-shirts, sportswear, caps, socks, underwear and tights have each received a drawer.
Planned and off to IKEA. This time, I decided to have the components delivered to me. Then it was time to build. Diligently we screwed and hammered. Incidentally, I bought some time ago the FIXA by IKEA, it’s great for furniture and also very cheap, I can really recommend it, because the construction is done even faster.
Then it was for me to grant. When clearing out my old closet, of course, I had already cleared out and sorted out all clothes and Co., which I no longer wear. I also recommend you to sort your clothes by category and colors. So if you’re looking for a white top and a flowered skirt, you’ll quickly find what you’re looking for and you will not have to search through your entire closet – which in turn would cause clutter again.
In addition, the sorting by color looks very nice, which is certainly of relevance in the Open Closet concept. For a better overview, I recommend you to build in next to your Komplement Shelves also Komplement drawers into your closet, because these are perfect to keep track.
My perfume and make-up collection has also found a new home in the PAX at IKEA. Now I can see everything at a glance and can coordinate my outfit including accessories, make-up and Co. perfectly.
But not only the PAX from IKEA is suitable for implementing the Open Closet Concept. Probably the most famous bookshelf in the world Billy can be perfectly transformed into a shoe wall. Because why should a woman hide all the beautiful highheels and Co. in a shoe cabinet? In addition to the Billy, I’ve also bought four additional shelves, so that all my shoes find their place.
I’m really more than happy with the result of my switch to the trendy Open Closet Concept. The combination of IKEA Pax and Billy is just perfect. You also seem to agree with this opinion, thank you all for the positive feedback on my Instagram pictures. Of course I hope that I could inspire you with my transformation. Here is the before-and-after comparison of my bedroom (P.S my dressing table has got a new place next to PAX).
