A DIY Guide to Designing a Stylish Walk-In IKEA Closet

It can be hard for a small closet, brimming with clothes and accessories, to ever feel organized. If you’re looking to trade in your current closet situation for a more functional wardrobe space on a budget, we’ve got you covered. IKEA’s AURDAL closet system features a modular design and customizable features that can turn any room into the stylish walk-in closet of your dreams.


Let’s jump into this simple step-by-step guide to help bring your vision to life.

Step 1: Design and Prepare

To start, let’s plan the closet area by measuring the space to calculate the modular design you will choose. The AURDAL planner is a free online resource that allows you to customize every detail – from drawers and shelving to hanging and shoe organizer space.

Before diving into assembly, unbox all components of the wardrobe system and lay them out in your new designated closet space.

Step 2: Assemble the Frame

Secondly, start assembling the frame according to the instructions. The AURDAL system’s modular design simplifies assembly, making it accessible to DIY enthusiasts of all skill levels.

Whether you need ample hanging space for clothes or designated compartments for shoes and accessories, you can design a walk-in closet that best suits your lifestyle (without breaking the bank).

Step 4: Organize and Personalize

Once the structure is in place, it’s time to start organizing your treasures – the best part. Sort through your clothes, shoes and accessories, and arrange them within the wardrobe system according to your preferences. Take advantage of the adjustable shelves and rods to maximize space efficiency and to create a clutter-free walk-in closet environment.
