How long is your share of the hanging rail in your wardrobe?
That's it really. I am getting a new wardrobe and have decided that it and one half of the chest of drawers will hold all of my clothes. I want to own less, wear them more in my new improved world . My DH is also going to fit the base of the wardrobe with two long shelves for extra storage but that will be it.
This is really great and very inspiring! My new wardrobe has already taken on mythic proportions and is going to change my whole life . I really believe that by making this 120cm rail and the shelves below the extent of my clothing I will lead a purer, better life! I am also delusional about many other areas of my life
i have the wardrobe and chest of drawers in our room. DH has one (bigger than mine, but has lots of other things stored in there too) in the spare room. i don't know how much hanging space there is tbh but it's perfect for me, I have my shoes/boots/bags in boxes or dust bags in the bottom of the wardrobe and nothing anywhere else in the house.
Oh, don't even get me started about our floordrobe.
In theory, we've each got one Ikea double-door thingumy (and further space in another room) but they're side-by-side to form an alcove, and Guess Who has the one further in? That I can never get to because the alcove is always so full of crap?
I have a rail and a chest of drawers which are bursting plus all the space underneath the rail and a shelf on top of the rail. OH has a rail which is half full, and a chest of drawers. We're looking into getting fitted wardrobes to hide everything so i hope we can find one with efficient storage. i also have the storage space under the bed - far too many clothes. Sienna will grow up to be just like her mummy lol! x
I am also trying to reduce the amount of stuff I have, aiming for quality over quantity. I have about two thirds of a shared rail - around 80cms. I have a large basket on the shelf above the rail and room for shoes under the rail. I also have 2 large drawers and a small drawer in a chest we share. I hang seasonal coats / jackets. Those not in season get packed and stored away in the attic. I hang dresses, shirts, skirts and trousers. I fold all knitwear and keep in the basket above. I have one large drawer which I fold Ts, vests and also keep running attire in. In the other drawer I fold jeans, leggings and shorts. Oh wait, I also have space in the tall boy by my bed which I keep underwear and scarves.
DH and I each have two-door built-in wardrobes for long items, and each have a rail in a third single-door wardrobe for shirts, blouses etc. We each have a small 3-drawer bedside cupboard, and share a 6-drawer chest of drawers.
We have a 4m long wardrobe - it's from Ikea and is also very tall. DH has 1m of it (which gives him a shelf at the top, a hanging rail, another shelf, 2 drawers and a trouser hanger pull out.
The other 3 metres are mine I have built my drawers in to that too so it holds all my underwear, PJs etc as well. Because some of it is double height that basically means I have 4m of hanging rail, 5 large drawers and 5 or 6 small drawers.
