Why are the closets in the majority of houses too small? Are the builders short of space or are they trying to control our shopping habits?
Either way its not one size fits all!
Generally, there is at least one closet per bedroom, generally a larger one in the Master to accommodate two people. We have 3 bedrooms in our home and 4 closets plus a bonus room over the garage that has another storage space/closet. None of them are very spacious, 2 of them can be best described as cupboards.
I can not function in clutter, its claustrophobic to me.
I am on a role right now since we are still staying at home during this Pandemic. Last weekend we both tidied our garage after recently repainting the inside.
I opened the door to a storage closet in my office space in the bonus room above the garage to be faced with more clutter.
I had forgotten what was in there.
It was somewhat of a dumping ground I am ashamed to say. Tile and carpet samples, paint charts, family photograph albums, Christmas/birthday cards, a fold up table, a dining table insert (extension), Jewelry, Handbags, Scarves and much more!
As you can see the contents of the closet covered the floor. Where did all that come from?
Sometime later, I had one huge dustbin bag of rubbish to be disposed of. Two bags of clothing, handbags etc to go to charity!
The end result is not perfect but definitely an improvement.
Next our Master Bedroom closet needs a purge. Clothing and shoes!
Now if only I could get my husband to do the same.
