Since I moved into the house that I'm currently living in with my family 13 years ago, my room does not have a usable closet. "Joyce, I see that you appear to have a closet door in your room; why is it there?" I will get back to that question in a minute.
So where exactly did/do I store my clothes?
- I had a separate dresser with five drawers to store most of my clothes.
- When I grew older and my clothes accumulated, I used the three drawers built into my bed frame to store the rest.
- Things I needed to hang such as semi-formal or formal dresses, and coats were stored in my sister or parents' closets.
Back to the question I know you're all thinking...
"So Joyce, why do you have a door in your room, then?"
I'm positive that when my family's house was built, my room had a closet. The previous owners of our house renovated my parents' room (which is directly behind the door you see in my room) and in the process, expanded their closet while taking mines away. I believe that the previous owners used my room as a music room or something so the closet wasn't needed in their case.
I did a lot of research for wardrobes that would fit my room, be within budget, and meet all of my needs. I ended up getting the PAX corner wardrobe in Tanem White (73/73 x 201cm). I didn't even know about corner wardrobes before. It really saves a lot of space which is what I needed. The wardrobes that were against the wall didn't fit my room dimensions and existing furniture. The assembly wasn't too hard but the instructions could have been A LOT clearer. It took both my parents and me to assemble it but
it was all worth it!
Has anyone had a similar problem to mine? I'd love to hear about them!
