Closet Dreams

Closets are fodder for many daydreams, if you’re a house junkie like me then you’ll often dream about the design first and then what fills it comes in at a close second. A closet expansion and improvement is definitely part of my “one day” remodeling plan.

I thought we’d take a spin through some dreamy closet and storage images.

I especially like to look at narrow closets because I think that’s ultimately what I’ll be faced with at my house so here’s some slimline versions,

Although this one isn’t narrow it still packs a big punch in a smaller space, like the shelves over the door frame


Ok…so let’s switch gears and dream a little bigger,

Now here’s an idea, the laundry in the closet–wonder if my husband would put his clothes away right out of the dryer? I’d change the light fixture and flooring and make sure to include a folding surface next to the machines
