A South Riding, Virginia, couple shared a large master closet that was essentially an empty shell. Tired of trying to create a place for everything in the builder-grade space, they tapped Deb Cantrell to make their closet stylish, functional and organized.
|The only way to store clothes was on two single rods with an attached shelf. Shoes were lined up on the floor.||An extensive closet system offers many options for hanging clothes, as well as shelves with easy access to store and display shoes.|
|There were no convenient surfaces for laying out personal items or storing jewelry or accessories. The husband had no place to hang his ties.||A peninsula offers counter space; it includes drawers for jewelry and accessories. Pullout racks store the husband’s ties conveniently.|
|There was no place to sit down.||A window seat enables the couple to put on shoes while seated.|
|The space was unappealing, with beige wall-to-wall carpet and dull lighting. The slanted ceiling felt low and oppressive.||Hardwood floors and decorative lighting dress up the space. The antique-white cabinetry creates a lighter, airy look.|
