Closet space is priceless, we get that. But what do you do when your child’s room doesn’t have enough wall space? Ditch your closet doors for the time being and use your closet!
My son’s soon to be “safari inspired” toddler room is a work in progress. However, I thought I would take a moment to give thanks and praise to the elfa closet system! The room is on the small side and as you can see, the closet takes up an entire wall. Now this would be a big plus if it were a teenage girls room but considering that my son’s clothes are just 2T, one side of the closet will suffice. The elfa really can do it all (Did I mention it’s even on sale right now?). So far he’s enjoying coloring at his desk, hiding his books and toys in the bins and I enjoy tucking away his clothes behind a lovely set of linen grommet drapes.
Rewind a few years back and you’ll see that we used the same trick for the nursery! With little room to spare for a large dresser, this set up made way for much needed floor space. More design advice: Don’t forget to also paint the inside of the closet to match the color of the room. This allows for the closet to then feel a part of the space.
Have any closet makeovers of you own? We’d love to see them.
