Whether you call them utility closet, storage closet, hall closet, coat closet – they are all the same. It’s a place to put stuff. Like the garage, they are often used and abused, and greatly under utilized! Things get tossed in when guests arrive and a quick clean up is needed. Unfortunately only to have more things tossed on top later.
The underlying problem is what needs to be addressed, and that is – the things you have need a real permanent home. It is so much easier to clean up when things really have a home. Cleaning the house for guests is easy when you know exactly where to put things. Here are some successful storage closets to check out. One of these could be yours too!
Before & After
“After my grandma died I came into all the family photos, keepsakes and heirlooms and they needed protection, and safe storage. Maureen organized it all in the space under the stairs. Safe until I am ready to do something with it. Thanks Maureen.”~ J.E. Spring Cypress, Tx
Holiday Storage Closet
Not everyone is lucky enough to have and entire storage room, but this client does. She uses it to store all her holiday decorations, wrapping supplies, and other items that might otherwise end up in the garage. All in a climate controlled environment. How neat is that?!?
