By adding a wall, there is now a defined zone for reading or relaxing. Adding built in shelves to display trophies makes use of otherwise wasted space.

This typical reach-in closet with sliding doors made it difficult to access items and see what you have. Opening up the space allows for maximum utilization of the space for clothes, toys and keepsakes. A DIY closet system from a big box store adds much needed space and value to the closet.

In the original configuration, there was little floor space to play or watch tv, but by adding a custom loft bed, we have literally doubled the space.  Separate lighting above and below allows for easy maintenance. Custom shelving below allows all DVD’s, games and assembled legos to be neatly displayed.  A soccer ball area rug ties in nicely with the theme of the room, and warms the space.
