Design Your Dream Closet
Stylish solutions that will turn every chaotic storage space into an ordered haven.
The entry closet in Margaret McConville’s small New York City apartment has a lot of pressure on it. “It’s the only closet outside the bedroom,” says Margaret, “so it has to handle everything from jackets to detergent to holiday stuff.”
Before: A Cluttered Catchall
With no clear division of labor here, trench coats and umbrellas shared shelf space with bike helmets and bungee cords. Bulky items in front (like a vacuum and assorted plastic storage bins) blocked access to everything else.
