Closets for Beyond the Bedroom
The closet tower can store a sewing machine or iron. Shoe cubbies house yarn, keeping it tangle-free. Pullout baskets make paper, paint, and boxes easy to locate. Fabric can be hung from a rod, keeping it wrinkle-free and in view. There’s plenty of floor space for other items. Options include bins to hold magazines, supplies, and spools of ribbon.
Stop clutter where it enters with an organizer by the front door. The single closet tower drawer leaves space underneath for vacuums and small items. Cubbies above the drawer give each family member a slot. Hang lightweight items from 3M instant hooks. Hang coats on the rods, and toss hats, gloves, and scarves in a designated bin or on a shelf.
Store what you need for indoor and outdoor activities: books, magazines, and board games on shelves, with bins below for boots and balls. The center space holds picnic supplies, small coolers, and outdoor blankets. In the open side of the system, stash larger items like golf clubs and lawn chairs. Individually marked bins and baskets capture seasonal fun items.
