Repurposed Closet Makeover Ideas
1) Food Pantry
This is a perfect way to repurpose a closet if your kitchen does not have a big enough pantry to hold your food. If you tend to buy in bulk at the grocery store, repurposing your closet into a food pantry will ensure you have enough space no matter how much you buy. You can get creative with it too! Try building shelves to better organize your items.
If you are looking for a purpose for your entryway closet, why not turn it into a mudroom? By transforming the space closest to your entrance, it will help organize all of the clutter in your apartment. Instead of seeing coats, shoes and bags scattered throughout your rooms, you can keep it all in one centralized place. You can use any variation of shelves, cubbies and benches to your liking to create your perfect mudroom closet.
3) Office Space
For this repurpose tip, you may think you need a large closet for it, but you really don’t. All you need to do is have just enough room to fit a desk into your closet and add some shelves to it. The chair you can move around the house and pull it up to your desk closet whenever you need to. Another great thing about having a desk or office space in your unused closet is that it doesn’t need to stay open. Whenever you have guests over and want to make more space, you can just shut the door!
