Not enough closet space?
Ever feel like you don’t have enough space to put your out-of-season clothes or storage bins away? Finding enough closet space is a common problem for owners of apartments and also older homes. Below, we’ll give you a few example on how you can expand and make the most of your closet space.
Adding a closet under your staircase
Adding closet space increases not just the functionality but also the value of your home. Therefore, the often overlooked area under your staircase could be prime real estate for a closet. If you are not sure whether this could work under your staircase, ask a professional contractor for advice.
Add to your bedroom closet
To add space to your bedroom closet you could widen and deepen it. Alternatively, you could expanding your existing closet into an adjacent room. Just be aware that the other room can take the space hit and still remain functional.

The majority of buyers will look for at least three rooms in a detached home. Bringing your home down to two bedrooms will in turn eliminate a large portion of the potential pool of buyers. Than again, who doesn’t love a grand walk-in closet?
