I liked the way Ikea Stolmen system looked, but even though it claims to be flexible it just wouldn’t fit my recess measurements! But where there is a will there is a way. So I had the shelves and drawers shortened to match my dimensions and design. To save precious space I fastened the external sides of the shelves and rails directly to the wall instead of using additional poles.
To make the inside of the closet a tad more intriguing I covered the walls with birch wallpaper and then made linen and velvet curtains instead of opting for ordinary doors…I simply could not find any I would like :-).
