STORAGE STRATEGIES: Twice As Nice
Clever storage systems maximize twin closets in this bedroom— creating optimal space for hanging clothes and a nook for a desk.
TWO CLOSETS MAY BE BETTER THAN ONE,
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.
