It’s a closet makeover! And I promise, it’s not as boring because it sounds.
All of us have that closet or two that would actually use some assist…and perhaps even a makeover. In our home, it’s the guest bedroom closet. In all probability as a result of it was the least used room in our home, after we moved in.
So we simply shoved no matter we may in there, and forgot about it for some time.
However slowly, it’s grow to be an area that we truly use.
For company, once they come to go to, clearly. But in addition for us as a household – nap time for Hayes after we want a change of surroundings, television time after we wish to lay down (since we don’t have a television in our primary bedroom), and so forth.
And since that closet doesn’t have a door, the cluttered vibe was actually beginning to get miserable. It was TAKING OVER!
That’s how this closet makeover took place. I carved out a while to wash the whole lot out, donate what we didn’t want, introduced some bigger stuff to storage, and painted the walls and ceiling to match the remainder of the room (Chantilly Lace from Benjamin Moore).
With the clear slate, I used to be in a position to convey again in solely what we wanted in right here.
Now, the closet looks like part of the room – with practical storage space AND cute decor sort issues. It’s a steadiness.

Closet Makeover (Earlier than Images / Progress)
Once we first moved into this home, this room had two small closets, with no doorways. The no doorways on closets gave the impression to be a theme.
It felt like a really completely different room again them. Fairly darkish with the outdated flooring and closed off with the 2 tiny closets.
There was additionally a washer/dryer hookup in one of many closets, however it wasn’t massive sufficient to truly match a washer and dryer. Lol.
Anyway, after we had new flooring put in, we additionally had the crew knock down the wall between the 2 closets to make one large one.
This works so a lot better for us and opened up the area a bit of as properly.
Feels extra like usable sq. footage now, since we’ve opted to maintain operating with the no closet doorways theme (no less than for now).
Closet Makeover (After)
After portray the whole lot a crisp white, I put in some quite simple white cabinets. The ones I got are from Nathan James.
Extremely advocate them, in case you’re in search of one thing like this.
There’re simple to place collectively and are actually good high quality. Mine are matte white, however they arrive in different colorways as properly.
As a result of we don’t have company all that always, I made a decision to have the cabinets go all the way in which right down to the bottom.
BUT in case you like this look, however need clothes storage (a spot for hangers), an alternative choice can be one thing just like the smaller 4 shelf bookcase with a dangling bar hooked up beneath the underside shelf.
That mentioned, right here’s how the ultimate cabinets look all styled up within the visitor bed room closet…
I added some cute baskets and felt bins to maintain some hid storage.
And stuffed the remainder of the cabinets with ornamental objects that I beforehand didn’t have room to show.
I stored the cabinets semi-minimal, so after we do have company, I can clear a couple of of them off for visitor’s folded garments and the objects.
We stored the washer dryer hookup, in case we ever wish to strive the laundry in right here.
So, I coated it with a chunk of paintings. You’ll be able to sort of see it peeking out a bit of from behind there, however I believe it’s high-quality. Not that noticeable.
