How many of you have thought this about your storage and closet space?
Storage and Closets Space defined.
I live in Arizona and my house has a coat closet. I know, right! We don’t wear coats where I live. So I don’t need a coat closet. But living in Arizona I don’t have attic space that I can use. But I needed a space to store holiday decorations and typical attic stuff. We needed more function and less hanging space. We pulled out the rod and added shelves.
You might be thinking nice story Pamela but what does that have to do with me?
Well you may find that you have storage spaces in your home that do not function at their best for you. You might need to add cubbies or a shoe rack to the bottom of your hall or coat closet. Making it possible for your shoes to be stored out of sight. How about adding hooks for purses or book bags? Remember the inside of the closet door is great unused real estate. If you only hang jackets and not long coats you might be able to add another shelf or another hanging rod.
Maybe your closets have only a single rod. Do you have lots of long hanging items (a/k/a Dresses)? No? Add a second rod. Bam, you just doubled your closet space. Children’s closet’s really can benefit from adding a second hanging rod.
You could be someone who wears lots of stuff you don’t really want to hang but you only have that one lone rod in your closet. Depending on your space you may need to put a chest of drawers in your closet. You can still have some hanging space.
Make the most of what you have.
Don’t want to make a permanent change or you are renting and you can’t? I did not forget about you. A quick trip to the hardware store for threaded pipe you can screw together a few bits of pipe together and you can add lots of storage. All without making holes in the walls. Bonus it is easy to assemble and disassemble to take with you to the next place. I have attached 2 links to give you more ideas. But they are all over Pinterest and the Internet.
If you are feeling like you not want to DIY or is the not right style for you there are hanging shelves, freestanding racks and add a rod options available to purchase.
One of my brilliant readers took over the toilet racks for they became a freestanding closet with extra hanging and storage. Thanks Suze
My point is there is no reason your space can’t work for you and fit your needs.
I love your comments and for your share your ideas.
