These days it seems everyone is turning their coat closets into mudrooms and reading nooks. I love the idea, but I couldn’t practically give up my closet space. What I could give it was new life with lots of pretty and practical solutions.
Oh mercy, I’m loath to remind you of the before photos. For those of you who haven’t seen them yet, don’t be scared. *wry grin* It’s pretty awful, and I’m truly ashamed to say that these before pictures occurred while I live here…these aren’t from the previous owner.It always amazes me how quickly a little space can become a disaster… one little person searches for “the other glove”, and in one minute flat it looks like a tornado hit. I would open the coat closet door, sigh in frustration, and quickly shut the door behind. I tried hanging sweater organizers and rolling bins, but to no avail. I am so relieved to finally be able to open the closet door and not have an anxiety attack. *lol*
The Completed Closet
l want every space in my house to be pleasing to the eye, even if it spends lots of time behind closed doors. And why shouldn’t my coat closet be attractive as well as have optimum function?
I hope you enjoy the tour of my completed coat closet!
Lest you think this closet is just another pretty face, it is chock full of practical storage solutions! I really enjoyed finally organizing this space.
Hi, just found you through Iheartorganizing. Your coat closet it’s really lovely and so inspiring. Any ideas on how to organize a closet that has to be for coats, laundry hampers, iron and board + misc. items?
all the best
Thank you Antonella! Glad to have you here!
Wow, your closet is truly a multipurpose space! 😀 Well I definitely suggest a double hanging bar, and lots of hooks (large ones that you can hang your ironing board on, and some extra added cubes or shelf space if you have the room for it! Good luck, sounds like an amazing project!
Love that you added pictures to make it more cozy! Great space.
beautiful, just stunning and well organised… I’ve got to do this!
What a nice closet Ursula! This is fabulous. Good work!
Thank you Nathalie!
