What’s great about turning your closet into an office space is that if you decide to keep the doors on it, you can close them and put all that work out of sight! A great option for when you want your den to look like a den or your bedroom to look like a bedroom.
If you live in an apartment or a “cozy” home, then you know just how much of a hassle it can be to try and position your furniture (or even fit all your furniture) in a way that looks good and is relatively functional.
Once you’ve decluttered your bedroom of all those little nicknacks and accessories, it’s time to either get rid of them or store them away where they can’t collect dust. Think furniture pieces or storage solutions with drawers, cupboards, bins, boxes, or anything else that hides stuff from being out in the open.
You know, bins and boxes of things that need to be stored away and only brought out once in a while? With the right shelving, you can still make it work. Either keep the original top shelf in there, or bring in some new shelves to maximize all that space above your desk.
Is your closet ridiculously small? Even if you have nothing but a very shallow section of the wall carved out that could barely be considered a reach-in closet, there’s still hope for turning it into an office space. Take a look at what some homeowners and apartment renters were able to do with their teeny tiny closets below.
A branch used as a rack to hang your clothes adds a subtle rustic touch, without being at all overpowering. Just make sure it’s strong enough to hold everything and attach it firmly to your ceiling with some simple hardware pieces you can get at any home store.
You need not spend an inordinate amount of time or cash to get this done, and you can simply switch out these new additions whenever you get bored. Adding excitement, color, geometric pattern and sometimes tranquil calm to the bedroom, the range of bedding and textiles from IKEA offers endless skins for your hip bedroom.
We’ve covered a lot of hanging ideas so far for open concept closets, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take advantage of other structures or areas of your room that can create a frame for your clothing storage.
