Of course, for form, function and cost, we chose the PAX SYSTEM from IKEA!!!!
After we consulted with the designers at Home Depot (which by the way, I recommend highly too since they were really patient with us and came up with fantastic designs), the cost ended up being too much for our intended budget for this space even after all the sale we were hoping to catch.
We eventually tried our luck with IKEA, online, trying out their wonderful ONLINE CLOSET PLANNER for the PAX SYSTEM, and we finally came up with a plan we both love. And to top it all off, we were able to meet the deadline on a SALE that was going on (15% off everything)! It was just an obvious sign for me and too good to pass up. ;-)
The plan I have here was made thru this ONLINE PLANNER IKEA had and I think you can also see our VISION more clearly now thru this...
|THE FLOOR PLAN|
WALL A & B - HIS SIDE
WALL G - LONG MIRROR
WALL C & D - HER SIDE
WALL E (A.K.A. nook) - HER SIDE for shoes
WALL F - Nordli Drawer Chest below (with mirror up top)
|Nordli 4 Drawer Chest|
|How it will hopefully look as you enter the double doors|
|Brimnes Dressing table|
I love how I can easily customize the PAX system in a way that will work BEST FOR US!

Now to MY SIDE...
Obviously, we made a SWITCHEROO, my old side of the closet is now HIS, and HIS side is now MINE! The switch was simple since HIS SIDE before WAS BIGGER! Hehehe!
The cabinet on Wall C with the glass shelves will mainly be a bag display - something that I've always dreamed of!
With this plan, I think we will be doing a lot of PURGING over the next coming weeks. It's time to do it too really, so I'll be sorting stuff out - to give, donate and sell on EBAY!
I'll let you know since you might want to check that out too!
Of course we will add cabinet lighting in all of them and I can't wait to execute the plan, hopefully, it will look good in real life as it does on the screen! Wish us luck since it will be a LOOOONG PROCESS!
I am absolutely so excited about this! Can't wait to share the process as we go along! We actually started building already! YEY!
A BIG THANKS to BRANDON from IKEA in St. Louis who was very patient and very helpful in the process of ordering everything (We opted to have everything picked and delivered for us to save our backs since we saved a lot during the sale)!
Have A Great Week !
Would love to hear your thoughts! Please share away...
