Hopen/Komplement walk-in wardrobe

Laura turns a spare room into a walk-in closet with parts from the Hopen/Komplement range. The results look pretty good too.

She says, “Recently my hubby and I moved into the downstairs part of this house and we decided to create something new in an old little room. So we decided to do awalk in closet!

We found someone selling the Hopen/Komplement system really cheap on Craigslist, and we just went for it. The whole closet could not fit inside our little room, so my husband had to take it all apart and start from scratch. After a whole week end planning, measuring, cutting, and drilling, we end up with this:

Tah dah!!

We are planning on hacking the closet doors into sliding doors for the closet, but that will be another week end and another hack!”

    This looks great! Our new place has an old vestibule which has been converted into a walk-in closet, about the same size as yours. The landlord has already installed some shelves there but they are huge (probably old table tops) and not practical for storing clothes. We could take those shelves off and install some new, as long as this doesn’t cause any damage to the walls. I think I have to pay a visit to the local Ikea store…

    That looks exactly like a closet organization system from Home Depot. Can IKEA and HD be THAT identical?
