It’s a closet makeover! And I promise, it’s not as boring because it sounds.
All of us have that closet or two that might actually use some assist…and possibly even a makeover. In our home, it’s the visitor bed room closet. Most likely as a result of it was the least used room in our home, after we moved in. So we simply shoved no matter we may in there, and forgot about it for some time.
However slowly, it’s develop into an area that we truly use. For visitors, once they come to go to, clearly. But additionally for us as a household – nap time for Hayes after we want a change of surroundings, television time after we wish to lay down (since we don’t have a television in our major bed room), and so on.
And since that closet doesn’t have a door, the cluttered vibe was actually beginning to get miserable. It was TAKING OVER! That’s how this closet makeover happened. I carved out a while to scrub all the things out, donate what we didn’t want, introduced some bigger stuff to storage, and painted the partitions and ceiling to match the remainder of the room (Chantilly Lace from Benjamin Moore).
With the clear slate, I used to be in a position to convey again in solely what we would have liked in right here. Now, the closet appears like part of the room – with useful space for storing AND cute decor kind issues. It’s a steadiness.

Closet Makeover (Earlier than Photographs / Progress)
After we first moved into this home, this room had two small closets, with no doorways. The no doorways on closets gave the impression to be a theme.
It felt like a really completely different room again them. Fairly darkish with the previous flooring and closed off with the 2 tiny closets. There was additionally a washer/dryer hookup in one of many closets, but it surely wasn’t giant sufficient to really match a washer and dryer. Lol.
Anyway, after we had new flooring put in, we additionally had the crew knock down the wall between the 2 closets to make one huge one. This works so a lot better for us and opened up the area slightly as effectively. Feels extra like usable sq. footage now, since we’ve opted to maintain working with the no closet doorways theme (not less than for now).
Closet Makeover (After)
After portray all the things a crisp white, I put in some quite simple white cabinets. Those I bought are from Nathan James. Extremely advocate them, in case you’re on the lookout for one thing like this. There’re straightforward to place collectively and are actually good high quality. Mine are matte white, however they arrive in different colorways as effectively.
As a result of we don’t have visitors all that always, I made a decision to have the cabinets go all the best way all the way down to the bottom. BUT in case you like this look, however need clothes storage (a spot for hangers), an alternative choice can be one thing just like the smaller 4 shelf bookcase with a dangling bar connected beneath the underside shelf.
That stated, right here’s how the ultimate cabinets look all styled up within the visitor bed room closet…
I added some cute baskets and felt bins to maintain some hid storage. And crammed the remainder of the cabinets with ornamental objects that I beforehand didn’t have room to show. I saved the cabinets semi-minimal, so after we do have visitors, I can clear just a few of them off for visitor’s folded garments and the objects.
We saved the washer dryer hookup, in case we ever wish to strive the laundry in right here. So, I lined it with a bit of paintings. You’ll be able to form of see it peeking out slightly from behind there, however I feel it’s nice. Not that noticeable.
