How to turn a cluttered closet into a store for extra goods

Situation: This hall closet was full of mismatched stuff, old linens and heirlooms. The closet was not functional; it was wasted space.

Challenge: We wanted to turn this beautiful cedar-lined closet into a functional space, utilizing it for storage of items that the client would need to access rather than old heirlooms that were never used.

Solution: We decided to turn the closet into a “store” for extra goods from Costco that were getting dusty in the garage. We cleared out the top two shelves of linens and heirlooms, and donated most to a hospice. Some of the linens were saved for the client’s daughter. All of the useful goods from Costco were gathered from the garage and throughout the house and are now easily accessible in the closet, organized by room.
