but they don’t do much good if they’re crammed full of stuff you can’t find. This home­owner gen­er­ated enough space for clothes and ac­ces­sories in one closet by adding new elfa stor­age sys­tems from The Con­tainer Store that ex­tend to the ceil­ing. She trans­formed the other closet into a com­pact home of­fice with a handy desk­top and plenty of shelves for sup­plies and even a charg­ing sta­tion. A re­fur­bished dresser and a night­stand with easy-to-add en­hance­ments pro­vide ex­tra lay­ers of stor­age in a bed­room that now mul­ti­tasks with ease.
