Maximizing drawer space - built in closet dresser
I have a question - After I finish the wall unit I'm putting together for our TV area, I am going to start on a built in closet so we can get rid of the dressers that we have in our bedroom. The dresser portion is going to be 80" wide, approx 20" deep and maybe 37" high (Before feet/kick panel). I can't go much higher than that as my wife is 4'9" tall. Above that will be some cubbies in the center, flanked by hanging rods. The sides of the closet will be more hanging rods, with one full length dress styled, and a few more drawers/cubbies.
Any good suggestions on maximizing space, or a good book to pick up for this? What I'm envisioning is a typical box, with a face frame and just enough "skeleton" to put all the drawer slides on. I was thinking of one center set of 14" (face length) drawers, with two 30" drawers on either side, 5 high, flush face mounts.
Any input is appreciated, thanks!
