How to Organize a Closet Using the New Closets by Liberty Systems
I’m excited to share a new closet organization partnership that I have been working on for past several months. Liberty Hardware asked me to feature their new Closets by Liberty systems in our home. I love the look of custom built-in closets and was so excited to install these closet systems in several areas of our home. So how did I design and install them all by myself? I’m sharing the before and after images, along with the installation process with you today!

Our Previous Closets
Looking back at these images, I have to laugh at the amount of pillows that I stored in my closet. I’ve always joked that I would rather buy a designer pillow than buy a designer handbag. I’m pretty sure this image is evidence of that statement! Scott and I try to keep a simple wardrobe and we do not keep items in excess. I prefer to only own one or two items that are similar in color or style. Therefore, organizing our closets was not a large task!
Installing the New Closets by Liberty Closet Organizing Systems
When Liberty Hardware reached out and asked to partner on this project, I was so excited. I love organizing and I was really impressed with the aesthetics of their closet systems. But first, I had to remove the dreaded wire closet system, repair the walls, and paint in preparation for the new closet systems. Removing the wire closets in our master bathroom was fairly easy and I complete the task by myself. I had to patch the holes and then spent the next few days painting the closets. I painted the closets with Chantilly Lace by Benjamin Moore.
Closet Organizing Systems Used
- Master Hers: (2) 6′ systems
- Master His: (1) 6′ system + 1 tower from extra 6′ system
- All Seasons Closet: (2) towers from extra 6′ system
- Play Closet: (1) 6′ system
Each system comes with 3 drawers, 11 shelves, 3 rods, and standard hardware. We ordered additional hardware to match our decor.
The “toy closet” was a large project in itself. We decided to move the closet opening from our living room and have the closet open from our future office. That way, we eliminated two doors in the living space and allowed for another wall to feature beautiful art. We installed pocket doors and relocated the closet to add another “room” aka office to our floor plan. The office will serve as a multifunctional room, housing a sleeper sectional for guests and lounging, and the downstairs toy closet for our children. I love how it turned out and cannot wait to reveal that room. For now, enjoy the organized play closet!
Finally, I had a few pieces leftover from the closet systems so I transformed our utility closet into an “all seasons” closet. It now houses our summer and winter coats, hats, swimsuits, beach towels, pool and boat bag, and shoes that the kids wear on a daily basis. I also plan to attach hooks on one wall for school bags. This is a small closet but it is one of the most used closets in our home. It’s location is right by the garage door and perfect for housing all of these items.
Our New Closets Comeplete with Closets By Liberty Systems
The Closets by Liberty systems were incredibly easy to install. It took me weeks to accomplish this task because I was only able to work on them while the kids were napping. I also love how you can customize the system to fit your needs. For example, I wanted more drawer units in my closets and more shelves in Scotts closet. It was easy to switch out the pieces with each system.
What We Love About the New Closet Organizing System
- Aluminum & Sturdy
- Easy Assembly
- Easy Reconfigurability
I hope you enjoyed our new closet organization. I’m thrilled with our new closet systems and our custom closets. I cannot wait to share more of our projects with you!
