You just got back from a successful shopping trip and can’t wait to wear your new outfit next weekend. The only problem is, though, that when you go to put away your clothes there’s no room! The closet is crammed so full that pretty soon, the rod and shelf might just give out and collapse.
So what do you do with a closet, whether it’s in the bedroom or hallway, that is too full? Instead of getting rid of your personal belongings, store your stuff out in the open. When displayed properly, your clutter can be turned into decor to enhance your room’s interior design.
Not all of your stuff can be decorative, but items like hats, books and dishware can. In the bedroom, use wall hooks to keep your stylish hats organized or hang up a bulletin board that you can use to display jewelry. If you have too many clothes for your closet to handle, use a portable clothes rack to show off your favorite dresses and tops for all to see.
Rooms like the kitchen and entryway can also feature functional objects as decor. If your cabinets are not large enough, take advantage of extra wall space either in the kitchen or dining room and install open shelves that can feature your favorite dishes. Hang pots and pans on the wall with hooks, or let them dangle from the ceiling if wall space is limited. In the entryway, consider a coat rack to feature your family’s colorful jackets, rather than crowding the mudroom’s coat closet. If you’re always losing your keys, place a hook by the door where they can be found easily.
