Take an Unused Space in the Master Bedroom and Build a Closet – Photos

We needed to make some space in our Master Bedroom and decided to create a closet. Here are some pictures of before, during and after of building the new closet.

Adding a few more inches to this space.
It is important to remove all the drywall and install a fresh piece instead of patching the drywall.

Installed 8′ bi-fold doors and trim.
Bi-fold doors allow full access to the closet when open.

High and low shelving has been added and rods that match the style that is within the rest of the house also.
