We'll start with the more obvious option- using your closet as an office area. . .
Of course a closet turned cozy little reading nook is a great way to get away. . .
Is your entry way in need of some personality? With a few fairly minimal changes, you can keep some storage and add some style . . .
Kid's sharing a room? You can still separate the crib somewhat by placing it in a converted closet space(great idea Staci!). Add some curtains for more sound blocking if needed. . .
Or maybe you'd rather keep the crib out and move the changing table inside the nook. . .
Fashionistas and girly girls might go gaga for a vanity set-up perfectly situated in the closet space. . .
Adults might agree to lose the storage if it means setting up a sweet wet bar (thanks Nikki for the idea!). . .
Desire a romantic feel in your bedroom? Placing the head of your bed in a closet space will create an instant alcove that feels super cozy (sorry, surprisingly I could not find any great photos of this). . .
Although TV's are pretty much always on in this day and age, I still like to have the option of concealing the television. Hanging it in a closet is a great way to make it easily visible or covered up. . .
One other idea I had but couldn't find a photo for was an exercise closet. I could see some dumbbells, bands, a radio, a tv, a water bottle stash, kettlebells, and more creating a very cute and functional area for fitness gurus out there!
Are you inspired to recreate your closet? Or are you hanging on to every inch of concealed storage you can?
