4 Ways to Transform Extra Bedroom Closets Into Useful Spaces

You can use extra closets in your home in many ways. Right now, you might stuff those spaces full of clothes, junk, and things you won’t look at for years. However, as an alternative to just letting dust collect, consider various ways to upgrade the closet space into something more useful for your home.

Discover four different ways to convert a closet space into something you may use every day. Learn about the options to help you decide on what works best for your home.

1. Home Security Closet

Organize your home security system with a centralized location for all the equipment. With a wireless home security system in your home, you likely need many elements to ensure everything runs smoothly.

A home security closet may hold extra camera equipment, batteries, battery chargers, back-up systems if the power goes out, or small servers to retrieve footage over a cloud. You might even use the closet to display footage on monitors. At any time, you could open the closet doors and access footage whether the clips are live from a camera or previously recorded footage.

Store the security footage in the closet to give your home an extra step of security. Only allow authorized users to access the closet. The extra step will help with any tampering problems in the area.

2. Home Media Closet

Besides security equipment, the closet space could house your home media options, especially if the closet is in a room with a home theater. Combine all of your home media options into a single closet to access electronics while you reduce clutter in your home theater as a whole.

Sound systems, video game consoles, and television receivers may all be in organized cabinets. Add a universal remote for all of the elements in the home theater. Then, multiple pieces of equipment will be easy to control and access without too many extra steps.

Many remote and devices have RF transmitters to send signals to the device without the need for a direct line of sight. You can also use phone apps as digital remotes that work in conjunction with an organized media closet.

3. Shoe Closet

For many of us, shoe collections include athletic shoes, dress shoes, sandals, and casual shoes for a variety of occasions. When you stuff them underneath hanging clothes in a regular closet, the choice may not be the best option for the shoes.

Dedicate a closet just for shoes to stay organized and have access to all the pairs you need. Special shelves may be useful to allow for easy access and displays. For example, you could install an angled shelf system so the shoes are fully visible without pulling out pairs and checking them each time.

You could even use a section of the closet to hold shoes still inside their boxes, but the shoes will last longer when left out of a box. Light strips and special overhead lights will help with the visuals inside the closet so the shoes are easily seeable at any time of the day.

4. Built-In Storage

Hangers and shelves are some of the more typical ways to organize a closet, but you have the ability to expand the space and storage options inside a closet by adding built-ins. Instead of adding shelves inside of the closet and the loss of space, the built-ins are for inside of the closet walls.

For walk-in closets, built-ins give you more room to move around the closet, try on clothes, and customize the space to fit your needs. Built-in storage may include shelves or drawers built right into the wall, all depending on your preference.

    Todd at A Tech did an awesome job setting up all the electronics in our basement. We have surround sound and all of the electronics are hidden in a closet with only 1 remote. My husband is techy so he worked with A Tech more than I did but my only request to Todd was that I needed to be able to watch tv and play a dvd without asking for help (I am not techy!) One fabulous remote runs everything and has pictures and an easy menu! They also fixed the internet issue in our house! Very Happy Customers!

    Todd designed a whole house audio system with separate controls for every room with one receiver. He was extremely knowledgeable about speaker placement, size and quality. The end product is amazing. He also recommended a remote that controls everything. This is one of my favorite features. I have also purchased several items for my garage organization that I love. They have everything from home audio, garage organization to kitchen items in the store. Will continue to do business with them as I still need closet organization.

    We have had our Beam Central Vac for over 15 years and absolutely love it! It is convenient, easy to use and best of all - keeps the 'dust' out of the home!. We have had very good service when we needed it, we replaced the motor in the unit once (very reasonable) and had replaced the power brush handle once. Pretty good for a unit that is over 15 years old! The folks at A Tech Easy Living Store are knowledgeable and very willing to assist in any way they can. Highly recommend visiting the store! They have LOTS of items that can make your life easier in your home!

    Great products! Exceptional Service! I was out of idea for what to buy my wife. I stopped at The Easy Living Store and they had all I needed to make her happy. I would have never thought of a self opening garbage can as a great gift idea, but they said she would love it and she did! I was amazed at everything the store had to offer and how helpful the staff was there. I will go back.

    Todd did an awesome job getting all the components into our basement home theater system that my techy husband wanted plus making it easy for me to run with only one remote. We are very happy! The guys that came to install the systems were polite and patient with me and took time to explain how to work it all!

    I have hard wood floors and Beam has a attachment I bought it at the store and it is a God send I simply love it, it is a dry mop on the vac! Amazing! I'm buying a spare mop when I go back! I bought my vac at Van Berkum's in Pella (Where I live) never will I go back there, they sent my head out for as a loaner and gave me some one elses. How is that for doing business! We argued for a long time about this and was getting no where she kept saying that it was my head, I will never go back there to buy anything! I'm 60 minutes from Des Moines and I will take my vac to be serviced at the Easy Living Store anytime!

    wish every home repair could be this easy!!! My central vacuum was having issues, burned out motor, poor connection and an outlet issue. The technician called me a bit early and said he was ahead of schedule, perfect! He was waiting when i got there, diagnosed it in about 10 minutes, I asked how long it would take to get the parts, he said he had them on the truck! I thought maybe they were generic, but when they made the appt they asked what model. He made the right diagnosis and fixed in about 20 minutes! Couldn't really ask for much more!!! The only remote downside was when I called on saturday the lady asked me to call back on monday. Great service and a great experience!

    I live in a 50's home. I had A Tech come and redo my closets for me. They had great ideas, listened to my input and now I have great closets, even though I live in an older home!
