My first-floor closet conundrum
We have a nice-sized home. It has 2,300 square feet of living space and feels like a mansion to us considering we’ve lived in homes and apartments that were well under 1,000 square feet in size.
Believe it or not, though, with all this space we have zero closets on our main floor. Zero! No closets for hanging coats … no closets for storing brooms, vacuums and mops … no closets to stuff full of junk before company arrives … you get the picture.

In the future, I’m planning a first-floor laundry room renovation that will add some storage cabinetry.

Stay tuned for the deets on that project. Spoiler alert: It involves a messy garage video that may rival any horror film you’ve seen.
