Maximizing Storage Space

In every home I’ve owned, I pull out the builder’s closets and I design my own.

As I’m accounting for hanging space, I leave room at the top of my closets for storage boxes to go all the way around the top.

Above is the closet I built at my last house

This is my current closet.

What goes up top? Out of season clothes and shoes, extra articles of clothing you aren’t currently using, backpacks, handbags and luggage.

I like to use clear boxes so that I can see my items while I protect them from dust.

My Crafting Area

I maximize storage in my crafting area by stacking clear storage boxes under the table. I also use storage cups that clip onto the outside of the boxes.
