Closet Door Curtains
Do this over laundry/kitchen pass thru for storage PLUS use brackets that can hold a rod... permanent OR spring... then add a curtain to make a "door". Use in Master Bath too. AND in walk in closet for office and bedroom.
If you have an enclave or cubby in your space, mount a rack on the wall and conceal it with a curtain hung from a metal rod. If no such nook is available, consider installing shelving near the door—and color-coordinate your shoes to make it look extra intentional.
I don't care for the shabby aspect of this door to the basement, but I love the idea of a pretty door leading to the basement rather than the ordinary door there now...
Love this closet. How to make the most of your space: 1. Take inventory of what you have, then 2. Reconfigure your closet with shelves, drawers, and rods that fit your needs. And if your closet doors make it hard to access the corners of your closet, take them off and hang drapery panels instead.
