The worst part about having plenty of storage in your home is figuring out what to do with it! A shelf in the wrong place or drawers that are too small can turn your storage room into a huge waste of space.
This home in Blue Bell had a perfectly sized pantry and a massive laundry/mud room. The homeowners just needed help maximizing the space to give them the storage they needed. Most importantly, they wanted a place for everything with room for the family to have a stress-free start and end to their days.
The My Custom Closet team took one look at the pantry and immediately removed the five shelves that were being used to store food. While having five large shelves might sound like a great way to maximize storage, it actually makes organizing food products even more difficult. Things get shoved into each shelf, pushed way back into the corners, and finding what you’re looking for turns into one huge mess.
With several creative shelves and drawers for storing things, this new pantry is the epitome of organization. The family will be able to fit so much more in this brand new space!
After consulting with the family about their laundry room, we determined the most stressful aspect of the laundry/mud room was the fact that everything ended up strewn about the floor. It was difficult doing laundry with countless pairs of shoes scattered around the garage door, and no place to hang coats in the winter.
We made the small closet more functional with shelves and two rows to hang coats. More storage was added to the laundry area, and we built a convenient folding table up against the wall. Beneath the table, we added cabinets with attractive doors for keeping odds & ends, linens, and lost socks.
For the finishing touch, we built a beautiful bench next to the garage door. The bench is the perfect place to sit down after a long day of work, kick off your shoes, and place them neatly tucked away on one of the shelves below the seat. Above the bench, we mounted a rack with several hooks to hold all of the coats, scarves, bags, and dry cleaning.
Having plenty of storage space is a huge waste if you don’t know what to do with it. Let My Custom Closet come up with the perfect storage solutions to fit your family’s needs!
