Today we’re taking you on a tour of our new Inspired Closets remodels. Randy and Shalia’s closets are separate his and hers Inspired Closets Remodels and Sandi and Rob share a closet. We can’t wait to reveal our new spaces!
Shalia and Randy’s Closet Before
When you walk into my bathroom off our bedroom, our closets are opposite each other in a long hallway. Before I show you the pretty, it’s important for you to see the before pictures. While my closet was somewhat organized, I never really knew how I could make better use of the space. I would look at organizational systems and peruse Pinterest, but the thought of bringing my ideas to fruition became too overwhelming. Both our closets have 9′ ceilings with so much wasted space, but I didn’t know how to utilize that space. Below are the “Before” pictures of my closet and Randy’s.

Rob and Sandi’s Closet Before:
The last two big projects we had left to do in our house are our bathroom and our closet. I had to decide which one I would complete first, and the other I would put on our 2021 project list. Since our closet was literally being held together with zip ties, I thought we would tackle that one first. You will not believe how much stuff we had crammed in our old closet! Do not judge my before pictures. It’s pretty scary!
Our closet is approximately 8’x10′. We have a large space, but it was set up poorly and I stuffed it full! In this picture, you can see all of the zip ties and a rope that holds our brackets together. In places, the anchors are coming out of the wall. Rob installed a pocket door so we could maximize our space.
Planning Our Closets
We looked to the professionals at Inspired Closets in Oklahoma City to help make our dream closets a reality. Our designer Beverly visited our homes, measured, then took inventory so she could create a personalized system for each of us. After our visit, we made an appointment for the following week to go to the showroom and choose our finishes. They have a 3D design tool that allows us to see what the finished closet will look like. We both had a budget of $6,000 each. We love that Inspired Closets offers several options to fit any budget. The original design was within our budgets before we added upgrades. We also added new carpet, lighting, wallpaper, and paint.
After she left, the first thing we both did was declutter and get rid of anything we did not love. We had to pull everything out of our closets and put them onto racks or in tubs (Inspired Closets provides these). We both did our own demo work to take our old closet systems out. If you’re looking to bond as a couple–I highly recommend doing a closet demo together! Especially if you spring this #Honeydo list on your husband last minute.
Choosing Finishes for Our Closets:
Inspired Closets Showroom:
Inspired Closets simplifies the entire process into 4 steps:
1. Consult- (either in the showroom or in the home; 2. Design- Beverly truly is an expert in design! We cannot say enough about her professionalism and attention to detail and how well she listens. She worked so hard to give us everything we wanted within our budget. 3. Prepare- For us, this is HUGE. Inspired Closets handle it all. 4. Install- Again, They handle it all!
3-D Designs of the Closets:
We cannot say enough good things about the installers Dave, Eric, and Rick. They were timely, meticulous, friendly, and took pride in their work. We were amazed at how closely the install matched the 3-D designs!
We’re going to let all the photos do the talking, but we do want to give a big thanks to everyone at Inspired Closets OKC for creating such incredible spaces for us!
Shalia’s Closet After Pictures:
I got sick of painting so I decided to wallpaper behind my shoes. I’m glad I decided to do that because I love the pop of color behind the shelf.
The thing that I love about my new system from Inspired Closets is that not only is it functional, but it also showcases my clothes, shoes, and accessories. I can style my closet to display my favorite items. It feels like a boutique to me and no longer a cluttered mess.

Rob and Sandi’s Closet After Pictures:
I still can’t believe this is our closet! Rob and I wanted to create a space that wasn’t too masculine or feminine since we share this space. I am still waiting on my wallpaper and will share it again once it is up.
This is Rob’s favorite part of his area. I told Beverly Rob collects knives, and she came up with the great idea to store them! I also have two velvet trays that are similar to store my jewelry. I’m still working on organizing it all. I have a TON of jewelry.
Since Rob owns fewer than ten pairs of shoes, I was able to use his remaining shoe space! The bottom drawer is hidden storage for his not so cute shoes. I also love that Beverly suggested this idea!I plan on hanging the wallpaper on the back wall and in my cabinet. It’s so beautiful–I can’t wait to share the wallpaper I picked out! I think it is worth the wait. Beverly also added a valet bar that’s so handy for when I need to steam my clothes. And this hidden belt rack keeps all of our belts hidden and organized (it pulls out). The pocket door turned out great! It looks as though it has always been there. I should be getting the door hardware in any day.
