Organizing Closet Spaces- Growing Trends

They’re all common closet afflictions, and they can quickly turn a closet into a disaster zone. You’re not alone; we all can relate. After all, it’s hard to find space for all of our goodies, and most of us are more than willing to sacrifice perfect order for just one more pair of killer boots. More and more people are electing to increase there closet space by taking part or all of an adjacent room. 1. Dresser island/Peninsula– Always wanted an island dresser, consider the area first of all… do you have a fair amount of space on all four sides, 3 to 4 feet all the way around? Don’t have the space?
