No home is alike. No space is alike. No client is alike- and that is lucky for me. If you have a closet that has a closet system or an underutilized solution there are simple ways to improve what you have. I’m delighted that I can share a space from a lovely client.
Use the space you have and love it!
This is a master closet and an overflow for bathroom items and linens. The back of the closet is a large wall unit of cubbies. Storage needs storage!
Here is the current use of the vertical space. We wondered what was in the box?
Now, take a look at that wall. I first emptied the unit and established a purpose for the wall storage. Simple baskets became homes for scarfs, ball caps, and extra linens. A few of the homeowners sentimental decorations were added for that special moment I believe closets should have.
A simple area rug adds some style and an inviting feeling – we spend a lot of time in our closets and they should feel good.
Colorful bins were added to the top shelf to hold extra pillows, throws, and a keepsake box. (We still need to work on hangers and clothes.)
Enjoy your children’s handmade art from a box! If they are hard to part with then keep them and filter as you get more.
Their shoes needed a home. I chose to use shoe bins for seasonal and rarely worn shoes. This also provided more space to place current shoes.
A simple basket now holds extra pillowcases. They are easily seen and easy to put away.
Getting organized does not have to be expensive. Do you have an underutilized closet? Remove all of the items and start fresh. (Shopping note:: The lovely bins, baskets, and rug are from Target.)
I’d love to share a Simple Savvy reader space too! Send me a note. Leave comments-I love sharing back.
