This is part two to the related post Maid’s Rooms… So if you had an extra big closet right off the kitchen making it into a pantry for overflow food storage items is the obvious answer as to what to do with the space.
Okay, so this is more of a hallway pantry than a closet pantry, but I just love it. It is so inspiring to even think about being that organized!
My MIL has an incredible room behind her kitchen full of kitchen overflow and crafting supplies. It’s such a peaceful haven!
Given that I don’t sew, I think having a wrapping room would be better for me! Apparently Tori Spelling had three gift wrapping rooms in her old mega-Mansion! (This is the smallest of the three!)
Depending on how big the closet is, you will either have an option for it to be purely storage versus somewhere you’d actually sit down to work on a project.
It really might be worth it to add floor to ceiling shelving don’t you think? And I love how wrapping paper was used behind the shelving.
And then there is Martha. These pictures are so perfect it’s a little bit scary. I think I prefer the inspirations above!
But I do like how she stores her wrapping paper so simply in a metal pail. And I love that shade of green. It seems very fitting of a craft room.
- So the bottom line is that an extra room, even if it’s just a closet, is the ultimate luxury–especially here in Hong Kong where every square foot is priceless. I’m determined that our maid’s room not go to waste! Stay tuned.
