Five Easy Methods to Stretch the Space in Your Mid-Century Closet — 6 Comments

  1. I love these tips, Karen. I can’t wait to share the vertical flip-flop storage ideas with my clients, and I think we all tend to underuse the idea of modular storage up on our shelves, but provided we have ample closet height, it’s a stellar notion! Great post!

  2. Thank-you Julie! I love the flip-flop storage too. Most mid-century closets, in their original form, have at least two feet above the top shelf, so the modular storage works great. The shelves are almost always resting on a cleat that wraps the wall. This makes them strong enough to hold the weight from the units.

  3. Great ideas. I never thought about the pant and shirt sizes and the issue it causes when pants are on the bottom, I’ll be sharing that tip!

  4. Maria,
    The depth difference is most noticeable when you are hanging the extra rod on the existing rod positioned at 68″-72″. It may not be as noticeable when you are working in a fixed double hanging section.

    The difference in depth also explains why pants tend to disappear when you mix them in with shirts. I always encourage clients to group pants together and I’m sure you do too.

  5. Great to hear from you! I’m glad that you enjoyed the blog post, and that you can use the modular unit idea for your top shelves. It has been awhile since I’ve posted. I’m working on that. You are such an inspiration with your weekly posts and videos!
