Closet: Reach-In

Project Title:
Closet Equality

Project Description:
In a household with five daughters, ensuring equality becomes paramount. Amidst the luxury of walk-in closets for everyone, the youngest daughter found herself with a reach-in closet. Determined to create parity in their living spaces, we engaged with the builder to reimagine and enhance her closet experience. Advocating for uniformity, we successfully persuaded the builder to reduce the return walls and install triple-track doors, effectively expanding the accessibility of the reach-in closet. This strategic modification allowed us to provide the youngest daughter with the same storage units that her older siblings enjoyed. To further elevate her closet, she not only received identical units but also enjoyed the addition of deeper drawers featuring mirrors. This thoughtful touch enhanced functionality and brought a touch of sophistication to her space, aligning it with the standards set by her older sisters. The transformation of the reach-in closet is a testament to our commitment to fostering equality and harmony within the household. By turning challenges into opportunities, we created a cohesive and equitable environment for each daughter, ensuring that every space reflects a shared sense of luxury and inclusivity.

Project Construction:
The original reach-in closet had 3-foot return walls. We worked with the builder to reduce the walls and add triple-track doors for better accessibility. To glam it up, we added countertops and mirrors

Materials Used:
White Egger, 5-piece doors, mirror

Equipment Used:
Closet Pro
