Transform Wasted Closet Space

These homeowners had a problematic closet with a long history. With a little help, they added storage, privacy and utility. Learn how to transform wasted closet space into a usable room with this project.

The room off of Mark and Molly Meigs' bedroom has a long history. It was once a very small bedroom, but then the previous owners added on. Then Mark and Molly bumped in a wall to add a bath and what's left is a small room that has morphed into a closet with problems. There's no organization, the floor slopes thanks to the previous addition, and the neighbors can see into the room because of a poorly placed window. So Karl shows up with a plan to add storage, get things organized and bring in some privacy.

Add storage and privacy to your own home.
