Upgrading your space doesn’t have to break your budget, especially if you can creatively repurpose your closet space to better suit a room’s function. With some adjustments, you can transform a simple storage system into something more dynamic. Read on for inspiration! 

Game Room Storage Space

Proudly display your gaming enthusiasm with a system that helps keep your board games, video game consoles and more organized—and looks good doing it! Upgrade your game room storage from a cramped closet to a sleek shelving unit that showcases your passion for a good old-fashioned game night, LEGO® construction project or virtual battle royale. Incorporate varying shelf heights to allow for styled stacking, and add tasteful baskets to stash game discs or connector cords. Place family games down low for easy access, and keep expensive consoles up high to better protect them.  

Mudroom Addition

Create an at-home way station by introducing a storage system into your mudroom. Gone are the days of missing keys, scattered shoes thrown off at the door or a last minute hunt for a phone charger—installing a closet system at your home’s most traveled point of entry or exit provides a hub for all your on-the-go accessories. 
Choose a system that combines hanging rods, shelves and drawers for maximum storage and functionality in a small mudroom space. Keep small items like masks and sunglasses arranged neatly in roll-out drawers. Hang coats above shoe shelves for a quick outfit selection. You can even create an organized charging station for all your devices, ready to grab as you head out the door! 

Craft Room Organizer

Makers and creators know that supplies can become disorganized quickly, especially after a burst of inspired crafting. Transform your cluttered craft room with a closet space designed to keep your collection of beads, thread, ribbon, paper and more in order and at hand. Stow tools like scissors and hole-punches in drawers, and use closet system rods to hang your in-progress creations. Store your sewing machine on a spacious shelf, and keep scrap paper in a basket on another. With an organized stockpile, you’re sure to have a clearer mind for creating.
