I realize these posts are way behind and out of order, but that is the way life is sometimes! Now that we are officially settled into our new house in Iowa, I am dreaming of all the ways we can refresh ad upgrade it, and master closets are high on that list. This closet will forever serve as my inspiration!
Way back in 2017 when we bought the house in New Hampshire I wrote this post about the master bedroom. The theme of the old house was lots of space, but very builder basic. (See full before and after of the home here). It needed a lot of paint and updating, but had a great footprint to work with! So we addressed the GIANT empty room that was adjoining the master that served zero purpose. That coupled with the fact that the closets were very unfunctional and annoying (having to access your clothes while on your hands and knees is less than ideal). Thus began the master closet room! There is a highlight from years ago where documented some on my stories on my Instagram if you want to see the play by play, or keep scrolling if you want the dramatic after.

I still can’t believe this was my closet! If you would ask me what I would change, my answer would be nothing. The benefit of working with a contractor who knows what they are doing is invaluable, being able to take how you live and create a solution is invaluable. And while some may scoff and think the closet was excessive (you’re not wrong!), there is a reality that creating an organized space and increased functionality as it relates to your stress level.
