Do you have any more details on the IKEA closet inset?
April 18, 2012
I'm interested in JUST this detail for an apartment - any recommendations or issues I should watch for? And could you share details on the inside layout by any (perfect) chance?

Thanks so very much.

We removed a typical closet that had 6'8 louvered bifold doors and reframed the opening up to the ceiling. That way we could use the 8 ft high doors. The left side has a high shelf, a tv space on a shelf and 4 sliding drawers below(serves as a built in dresser. The right side has a high shelf,
hanging rod and a shoe shelf below. The idea was to make the room feel bigger when the door is open and it works quite well. Just remember with IKEA you have to put together everything including the doors. It took quite a while to do, but for the price I don't think you can beat it and you get a really nice clean modern look. Good luck.

That is terrific; just the info I needed to ...more forward. And it does the job on your project. I am quite impressed at how tidy and gracious that smallish room looks.
