as i mentioned in another thread, i have not found a dresser set which i really like.so i've decided to build a closet in the bdrm, along the wall shared by the bathroom.the wall is ten feet long, i'd like to use 20" of depth or less. we prefer to hang everday clothes on pegs behind the closet doors, so we can get away with a lesser depth.plus we have another larger closet for clothes which need to be hung properly.my vision is for a three section unit, two tall sections with shelves and pegs behind doors flanking a lower drawer unit in the center.i'm thinking of a 40-42" wide drawer section with something like 28" taller end units. that center unit will be dresser height, with a mirror top for display.the question is whether it should be a real closet with sheetrock walls, or a piece of furniture set against the existing wall.halp!!
Well, as a piece of furniture that size, you're not likely to see a return from it if you sell anytime soon, but if it's constructed so the 3 pieces can come apart whenever you move, it could be a neat idea. If the room is otherwise perfect as a bedroom but for whatever reason doesn't have enough (a reasonable amt) closet space, then a built-in might be appreciated in future. If you have no plans to ever move again, then it all doesn't really matter.
If you build it like closet built-ins and avoid sheetrock and framing it shouldn't be so bad. If you use a slat-wall in the back the interior can be customized by anyone and the fixtures are cheap. Any pictures of the space and dimensions?

We are thinking of building something similar in our spare bedroom that has no closet. This is a picture of what we are considering building. This is a kitchen cupboard but could easily be tweaked to be a closet I think.
oh that's gorgeous! mine is slightly different, as i will eliminate the center upper unit. i was going to place a skirted dressing table in the center, but realise i prefer to stand up while doing makeup and hair.so that center counter will be a slab of marble, and the back wall and two sides mirrored.plus i have a vaulted ceiling, so i could totally do the library ladder--and the salvage yard has one atm.thanks so much for the picture, it's exactly what was looking for to get clearer about the free standing part.i think i'll avoid the extra sheetrocking, yay for finding a less expensive option i actually prefer!
I am glad the picture helped give you ideas. I know it did for me when I found it. It is very similar to what I was trying to explain to my DH that I wanted built in our spare bedroom.
Sounds like you have a plan, or at least an option! :-)
I love it,it makes me wish I needed one.
