When people come to my house for the first time, they often inquire about my custom area under my stairways. Typically, they love the idea of having something in that wasted space, and they want to know how to do it. Well, I find that to be a loaded question most of the time. Because every stairway presents its own potential for problems, one answer doesn’t always fit all. However, I can show you how to add storage under stairways even when you have a few obstacles to deal with.
I have this closet that I have been ignoring for a while. It is connected to my studio and editing room, so I have been using it for storage. However, up until now, it had just been a small room crammed full of junk. Well, I finally got around to cleaning it out, and decided that I really should finish it out as an actual closet. The problem was that I didn’t want to spend the money for a system in a closet that will not see very much use. So, rather than go out and purchase a kit, I decided to use some left over melamine boards to make my own easy DIY closet system.
If you look through enough articles on my blog, you will begin to notice a heavy concentration on storage/organization (in addition to my love for woodworking).

As a result, I get a lot of questions concerning this issue. Today, I would like to address some of these questions. So, I will be going over the standard closet measurement guidelines.
I recently have been re-assessing my clothes storage techniques. You know what I mean? The way that we fold our clothes exactly the way that our mothers did it. The way that we get stuck in a pattern of doing things without realizing that there may be a better way. Well, after my reassessment, I discovered that the way that I have been doing things could stand to use some improvement, and these are the space saving ideas for clothes that I have adopted.
