All you moms out there - Can you help me plan the nursery closet?
Koka and I decided to go with the Elfa system for the nursery closet since they have their big 20% off sale starting Christmas Eve. We've been working with a rep to plan the space, but since we don't have a child yet - it's hard to anticipate what we'll need.
Because we have limited drawer space in the dresser, getting drawers in the closet is very important to me. I'll store blankets and things like that in there.
We have sliding closet doors that make the space hard to divide - so keep in mind I can't really change the different columns - I can really only reconfigure the shelves/bars, etc.
That said, here are the three designs we like as of now. I'm also thinking I may add another hanging bar on the top left. I figure you can never have too much hanging space...
Can you tell me which configuration makes the most sense to you?
#1. This is the original design. It's the open elfa shelving and a movable tower of drawers. As I mentioned above, we'll probably add a 4th hanging rod on the top left.
#2. This is a slight modification of the original design to include solid white shelves. The drawers are 4" narrower to accommodate the dimensions required for solid shelving...
#3. This is with built in drawers vs. the tower. We lose some shelving to accommodate the drawer dimensions. To the left of the drawers will be a shoe organizer system. I really like the built in drawers, but I'm worried about sacrificing so much self space for them.
Option 4 would be "You're an idiot and you should do XYZ." :) You of course would need to provide the XYZ.
