Ideas for cabinet mods

Hi all, I am looking for some ideas to make the most use of the tall and deep cabinets on either side of our bed. Any suggestions would be most welcome, Thanx

Jumping on here too.

The massive amounts of storage around the bed are totally under-utilized.

We use hanging cloth shelves and put all our foldable clothes (t-shirts, socks, unders, shorts, etc) in them. One shelf even has a drawer in it for small stuff. We don't actually take any "dress-up type" clothing that needs to be hung up. Our jackets get hung on clothes hooks we've installed by the entry door.
Since the back of the cabinets follow the shape of the front of the travel trailer, they are deeper at the bottom and more narrow at the top. We utilize that space by storing items that we don't use very often in that extra space behind the hanging cloth shelves.

That isn't the exact one I have, I just googled an image.
Mine has 1 drawer, and one shelf that has a divider in it (we use that one to store socks in). They are available everywhere.

Amazon has many styles and varieties - https://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&ke...l_9rqywh37sg_e

I put shelves in one side. Cut two 3/8" pieces to roughly the shape of the sides. then attached cleats for shelves to each side. Cut shelves tight. Place two sides in cabinet, drop in shelf and put a screw down into the cleat to hold shelf in place. No need to attach the sides to anything, as they are held in place by shelves being tightly fitted wedged between the sides. I did make a drawer for the bottom with full extension slides, think it was 26" deep. In the back I put items not used often. I don't have dress clothes so no need for hanging space. Jeans, shirts, underwear, socks go on the shelves. Spacing as you need, and can easily be changed. Can also place false backs between shelves to allow storage for more valuable items.

You could put in some drawers similar to what I did with our pantry cabinets.
