9 Closet Uses You’ll Wish You’d Thought of Sooner

Silas & Grace

It doesn’t matter if you live in a small home or not, you can get creative with any space you have. And one of my favorites is the closet; it’s definitely overlooked. We tend to use it for just easy storage for clothes and cleaning supplies and.. junk. But what if you turned that extra bit of space into a more useful space? What if you could made that space benefit you in new ways?

WARNING: Below are some great ideas, but you don’t have to be as fancy as them. You can take a great idea and put your own spin on it. So no need to feel intimidated, you can try your hand at a DIY and it doesn’t have to be as complicated.
