Need a Wardrobe cabinet mod

So we are tired of digging through the wardrobe cabinets in my Grey Wolf looking for clothes that become a jumbled mess. Anybody have pics of shelves and lights they have added to organize these things to keep everything more organized? Thanks

Couple of ideas.
Try one of these

Another option use plastic Bins that fit in closet as drawers. Just pull one wanted out and open on bed.

I added 12" LED strips to many of my closets. Work great and easy to do.

I needed somewhere to keep my bath and kitchen towels organized so I bought this and it has worked really well in the extra closet area we have next to our bathroom. The bottom sections have those little dividers that you can remove. - Rubbermaid Configurations Collapsible Modular Shelf Unit, 27 1/2-inch, Natural (FG3F22DWNATUR) - Hanging Shelves

These hanging shelves are abundant in thrift stores. They also work well in food pantries.

Not sure if this pic will show up or not, but I ended up building a couple shelves that work perfect thus far

On my new, purchased in January, Coachmen Freedom Express there were two pantry type storage areas with no shelving. Each of these were just an open vertical storage area with doors. After much head-banging on ideas I settled on using wire shelving much like would be in a house closet. I figured out how many I would need, the spacing of each shelf vertically, the depth of shelving I would need and proceeded to improve these two storage areas. I used 3/4" x 3/4" wood cut to length for the shelves to sit on and used screws to attach them to the interior walls. In one pantry the shelves would be for towels, washcloths, then two plastic storage bins for assorted bath needs (soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, sunscreen, band-aids/medical needs). The other pantry would be for kitchen "stuff" (canned goods, boxed foods, kitchen towels, etc.). I placed the wire shelving upside down so that the lip that normally hangs down would be up to prevent items from sliding off of the shelf. No, it's not a five minute job but was well worth the time and effort to do this. By the way "OldCoot"--that's a nice job on the drawers.

Hi OldCoot,

I know this is an old post, but I am a newbie with a Solera 24 R that has a rather large wardrobe cabinet that I would like to add drawers to.

Your Pictures look great!

Can you tell me where you bought and what the details (manufacturer/Model, etc.) of the parts? Or did you make your own drawers??
