I like this design for a closet for the both of us ho early. Just take out the low shelf on one side or the other so my dresses will fit and boom. Or have a separate dowel elsewhere if this were a walk in closet
close up play room closet behind, utility room. open it like this to make laundry closet at the back door. Enclose the water heater. use space where w/d are now at right of door as a little built in seat for bags & coat hooks over it.
