QUICK TIP: By eating into an unused space in the garage opposite a tiny hall closet, I was able to create a walk-in closet next to the front door, concealed behind a bead board-clad door. With enough space to hold this families jackets for all seasons, there's still enough room for guests jackets, purses and other items. No need to stuff your master closet with winter coats or rain jackets, place them all in the entry closet! An added feature for this all-weather room; a drain in the middle so snowy boots and rain-filled jackets can slowly slip away! A key to incorporating an element like this into your home, is to look for unused "dead" space (many times found under staircases or in garages) and give it new life! Some view the kitchen as the hub of the house, but a closet like this can become command central by storing dog leashes, umbrellas, jackets and shoes, hats and gloves and all of those little things that land everywhere but where they should!
