To save room in this multi-functional nursery space, designers removed the door from the closet in the room and installed a changing table equipped with all the essentials. This clever idea keeps clothes, diapers and blankets close at hand. As the baby grows and the changing table is no longer needed, it can be removed from the space and it can function as a big kid's closet.
This shoe closet is so big it can only be captured with a wide-angle lens. Note how the shoes are placed on sliding shelves on a rail system, much like some public libraries use for books in England. That’s where Walter James got this idea, when trying to devise a storage system for his wife Tiffany’s more than 600 pairs of shoes. Walter designed the closet with three stationary back shelves and three additional rows of double shelves on a track with wheels and a header on top to hold the shelves in place and to keep them stable. The entire closet is made of cedar.

A clever use of a small footprint, designer Kristina Crestin came up with the idea to put a queen sized bed together with a twin bunk bed, thinking a family could fit into the small space. To the right of the queen bed, a closet holds essential storage. Black pipe fittings provide a safety component to the twin bed, but also add a little industrial flair.
A budget-friendly pine V-groove in a semi opaque wash on a warm grey was chosen for the walls so they wouldn't compete with the barn board ceiling.
