When my second son (out of two) left for college, my husband and I found ourselves as new “empty-nesters.” I was immediately grief-stricken. The loneliness was often too much to bear. While lamenting my loss to a close friend one day, she asked: “so what are you going to do with the extra two empty rooms now that the boys are gone?” Hmmm, I hadn’t really given that any thought before. After all, the thought of my boys’ rooms as empty made my heart sink.
Then, one night as I was laying in bed, I had a genius idea! ‘What if I turned Nick’s room into my dream closet?’ I pondered. That’s when things began to change for me, both figuratively and literally. The excitement of designing my own walk-in closet was the jolt I needed to break me out of the doldrums. The new closet real estate also meant that I no longer had to share our current walk-in closet with my husband. I love the guy, but to be honest, he is not the neatest pig in the pen, if you know what I mean? With pencil and sketchbook in hand, I began to design my perfect, fabulous, retail retreat space. Hanging a few random rods between walls was not going to cut it for my closet!
Nope, I needed functional and fabulous! Fortunately, I work for one of the world’s most admired manufacturers of organizational products. But seeing our products is not the same as using our products. So, I decided to do some independent research to determine the best solution for my needs. I tested out several of our products and below is a list of the six most useful items I found when creating my closet expansion. I have also included a few helpful tips for your consideration should you want to try this yourself.
Top 7 Most Useful Closet Organizational Pieces:
All these items helped me to realize my dream closet. Sadly, we have since moved from that house or I would have posted actual pictures of the completed project. But my closet project really did help me get over the empty-nester blues. Who knew that such a random, simple idea to convert my son’s empty room into an amazing closet space, would bring me so much joy? But it did! And if you’re experiencing the same this fall, just give it a try. You will love the change!
