Closet design in narrow area with slanted ceiling

Amy DJanuary 29, 2013
My master bedroom has narrow closets on either side of the room, with part of the ceilings sloped with the roof. I am having trouble visualizing a good shelf/rod layout to make these spaces useful but still easy to get to my things. Ideas? Are there design sites that can help me visualize this?

Right now the spaces are freshly painted, new bamboo floors, new lighting, but trim has not been installed yet.

What a neat and unique closet space!
Are you considering doors or curtains for the opening to the closet? Fo you have lots of folding clothes or mainly hung ones?If you are on a budget, Ikea makes some great combinations, see photos.
I would have the racks along the back wall and the shelves above.

We had multi-angle walls in our master closet and we designed & installed ourselves using this great system by Closet Maid from Lowes. But Closet Maid has an online design system. Check it out. http://www.closetmaid.com/en-US/Pages/Default.aspx

Thanks. Actually I'm not planning to have any doors or curtains over the openings. The original house design left these open and I liked it that way -- I kept a built in cabinet that is in the additional picture. One of the openings has been narrowed to a more traditional doorway size, though, so there is more wall storage space and less visibility of what's in the closet.

I have a little more hanging clothing than shelf clothing, but I'm wondering if I can get storage on both sides. Maybe if I leave shoe shelves on one side that will work better since it won't stick out as far as regular shelves/hanging depth.

Will check the Closet Maid design site too, thanks!
