When you find yourself with extra storage space in your house, you don’t have to decide between a pantry or a coat closet. Thanks to the design experts at My Custom Closet, you can have them both!
This Newtown Square homeowner had a large storage space just off the garage, right when you enter into their home. They really needed a large pantry, but also wanted a place to hang their coats and kick off their shoes when they came home from a long day of school or work. Most importantly, they wanted this space hidden away from view to keep the hallways clear.
Since the house was brand new, there was plenty of time to change up layouts and add installations as needed before they moved in. We took measurements of the storage space, and came up with a way to maximize the walls with adjustable shelves, hanging baskets, and stacked rods for hanging dozens of bulky coats.
We even added a convenient bench to sit on when removing shoes, and cubbies to set them in. There’s a place for everything in this pantry/coat closet combo!
