Hi All. Wick here! Today’s topic is closets closets closets closets closets. If you happen to watch modern family you’ll find that mildly amusing:)
My wife recently cleared out a closet for me in our room! Things are looking up for the Wickster! I even scored this bottom drawer in the deal:) I used to use the closet in my sons room across the hall. Needless to say we live in a small home and don’t have a lot of closet space. So what do you do when closet space is at a premium?
Here are some options!
1) Use the Elpha closet system from the container store. It’s still a bit pricey but it’s not as expensive as some big name closet organizers. And it gets the job done!
2) If you only get one drawer for your clothes (like me:) then you need to maximize your closet space. I love these pants hangers. One side is open for easy access:). Also you can use these velvet hangers which are slimmer and hold clothes better. Plus a quick shoe rack from bed bath and beyond will complete your cheapest closet make over.
3) Two extreme ideas if you can do them are … first to build a bump out in your room to add closet space. No foundation needed just a 2 foot deep closet attached to the side of the home. We considered building more closets into this wall. And two, if you have a small spare room in the house that you don’t know what do with turn it into a walk in closet! You know. Just sayin.
3) Lastly change your clothes! That’s right. What if you had fewer clothes that were more versatile? Clothes that mixed and matched to make more outfits than you thought possible? Some expensive, some not so expensive? What if you had a closet full of clothes that inspired you to get out there and get the job done?
