In my old apartment, my bedroom used to be very narrow and long, which was kind of awkward to decorate, but towards the end of living there I found a great solution with the Montana wardrobe solution spread over the entire wall, also creating a little bench to sit on. I loved this setup in my old home (which you can see in this blogpost) and it’s one of the things I truly miss about living there.
My new home has a completely different layout, with a smaller and more square bedroom. It’s quite tight but works fine for just one person. I did end up with way less wall surface though and I obviously couldn’t use my Montana wardrobe in the same setup as I had used it before. I will miss my cozy bench, but the nice thing about this modular system is that you can adjust it to your needs and to any room. These wardrobe modules were one of the first things that were installed after moving, because they need little to no assembly.
Since in my previous home, I had an old closet next to this setup to hang clothes (that’s how wide this bedroom was) which I didn’t have space for in my new place, I decided to update the setup with two higher wardrobe modules and to design a layout that goes higher up to fully optimises the space available.
The bottom modules are the drawers that I previously had, where I store my sweaters, t-shirts, pants and everything foldable. I fold everything Mari Kondo style to optimise the space to the fullest, but these drawers are very spacious and deep so I actually have more space left to fill. I try not fill it though as I try to keep my wardrobe minimal. The two higher cabinets I added have a hanging rod for hanging dresses, skirts, shirts and jackets. I use the right one for longer items that fill the entire cabinet and the middle one for shorter items so I can also use the bottom of this module for storing boxes. The small cupboard is used for purses and accessories, however I still need to find a good way or organising this one. Any tips ?
Last year I had chosen white as a color for the modules and I naturally chose the same finish for the modules I added, but these components come in all 42 Montana colors and in the 30 new colors designed by Margrethe Odgaard that were introduced during 3 days of design. So many beautiful options !
