Ikea Closet Renovation
In our new house, some of the closets are not very good at being closets. The closet in my office had a built in desk and no where to hang clothes, so I re-did the closet using the IKEA Aurdal closet system. We have an IKEA about an 1.5 hours up the road in Orlando, so I headed there to buy the materials I needed. I was planning on buying a white closet system, but in that 1.5 hour drive they sold out of the end pieces in white, so I ended up doing a grey closet.
First step was to rip the old desk out of the closet. This desk was super overbuilt.
Then I patched all the holes in the wall and did some touch up paint.
Added more laminate flooring. The previous owners did not finish the laminate flooring in any closet, I guess they didn’t have the right tool (a laminate pull bar, required for putting in laminate at the ends of rooms and closets).
Then added new baseboards.
Then I assembled the IKEA Aurdal closet, 4 drawers and 5 shelves, mounted them into the wall, and moved my clothes from the guest room closet into this closet.
I like this closet a ton, and will end up doing our master bedroom closet in the same way, lots of dense clothes and shoe storage. The master closet is also a pretty bad closet.
