Turning Closets Into Nooks and Other Fun Spaces

Have you ever had a closet located in a spot where you think WOW, that looks ugly :-)  We know it happens (what were the builders thinking!) but this post is going to give you HOPE for that little 'ol closet.  

I absolutely LOVE what Kandi from Woven Home did to her coat closet.  It was the very first thing you saw when you opened their front door, and you all know how important I feel first impressions are. 

BEFORE: This is what you saw when you entered their home. /-:

And now, this is what you see when you enter their home!

Can you believe the difference!!  Now that really makes the entry inviting. :-)

Or what about turning your closet space into something else completely?  These people turned a space that could have been used as a closet into a great place to put the washer and dryer.


I have seen a lot of people turn their closets into craft areas.  I need something like that as I know I won't get an entire room dedicated to crafts until a kid moves out of the house ;-)


This is similar to Kandi's first impression entrance situation.  I'm sure Shelly from House of Smiths thought something other than a closed closet would look nice in the entry.   Just look at what they did!

Are you as impressed as I am?!

Not having doors on a closet can give added dimension to a room, and even make it appear larger.  Although, I know some of you are laughing thinking, oh you WANT closet doors on all MY closets! (believe me, this interior designer wants closet doors on most of her closets too!)


Here's another great idea - what about turning your closet into an office??  I love this!  It can be hard to dedicate an entire room to an office, and so many older homes don't have ANY area to hold a computer, so this options works very well. 


Sarah from Thrifty Decor Chick will give you a step by step tutorial on how to turn your own closet into a cute little reading nook!  I am sure I could snuggle up in there and enjoy a good book. (Although, that space looks a little small....maybe it was just meant for kids) :-)

What do you guys think?  Have any of these pictures inspired you to tear apart your closet? :-) Any married woman reading this should be very excited as it's Valentine's  Day Weekend! I'm sure your husband would love to be assigned fun new project to tackle for you. (he,he) 

Have a great day my friends!
