Create a Closet Workstation
Short on storage space? Turn an underused closet into a do-it-all workstation with just a few clever add-ons.
No need to splurge on a kid's desk set. This clever configuration packs a small workstation into a standard closet without taking up extra inches or sacrificing style. Start by removing closet doors then add open shelving to make everything accessible. To turn the back of a closet into a message center, you use pegboard. It's a great way to organize accessories like binder clips, pens and pencils. Also add a small shelf and a letter organizer to keep the desktop clear of paper pileups. Cut visual clutter by corralling accessories into boxes. Keep often used items, like tech gear, within reach. Then, hang a small light overhead to keep the workspace nice and bright. For extra style, use washy tape to spruce up a simple fixture. Finally, choose a comfy seat. This little stool tucks neatly beneath a desk, and can be moved throughout the bedroom when needed. Thanks to a few creative and clever updates, this versatile closet workstation is ready to go to work.
