Our master walk-in closet was all white wire shelves. It's not only lack of space for hanging cloth, but also lack of storage we really need. So we wanted to design and build a couple of three cabinet build in units for two sides to solve the problem.
We checked out the home center pre-build units, they are not very budget friendly, plus they are made from particle boards - not our favorite. So we decided to build our own from scratch.
We have a 9' x 7' closet with 9' ceiling, and we decided to not make the cabinet to cover from floor all the way to the ceiling, we still wanted to be able to vacuum the carpet in the closet every week, so the cabinets will be hanging from the top to a certain height from the floor.
I figured everything in my head, but I did draw the rough dimension to show the design. I believe every closet would be different, so if you decide to build your own, most likely you are going to have to resize them to fit your need.
Four of these are double hanging closet and two shelves – as they all have two hanging bars; two of them are just a closet with one bar but three shelves - we don’t have much of longer stuff, so these are narrower with more shelves.
The miter angle cut on the bottom of the side panel is there because of two reasons, one is to avoid straight corner at body level so that we don’t run into it, and two is for static, I think it looks better and the closet will look bigger that way.
