I like a closet with wire shelving covered with plastic sheets at an angle for shoes and boots so the sand can just slide off the shelf, easy to sweep up and the stinky shoes are not in with clothes. Around the corner is plenty of hanging in closet for coats/winter wear. Some double hanging for short coats and curve at the end for long coats/snow mobile suits/hunting clothing. The opposite wall hooks for hanging sweat shirts. Cubbies for clean sweat shirts. A clear shoe hanging for gloves so you can find just the right pair at a glance. It is long so small kids get the bottom and work up for bigger people. Hooks for scarves. Of course the laundry room to dry the wet clothing from being out in the snow. I also use the clear shoe hanger in the office for excess supplies and in utility room for misc items like light bulbs/special cleaning supplies/scrubbies. I think in new homes and remodels more space between 2x4 or 2x6 areas in walls should be used more. In the bathroom it is perfect space for extra shampoo/soup/medicine. Hallways could hold knick/knack items/ medicine/display flowers etc. In bedroom/bathroom vanity for make-up/perfume/lotions/other cosmetics.

Speaking of organization, wouldn't it be great if the Houzz like button was at the bottom of the article? You don't know if you like it until you've read it right?

I’m just panicking...moving to new condo in two days, when I looked at kitchen yesterday they have cutlery drawer but not one for utensils...I’ve already purged but now don’t know where to put them, and I’m not one to have stuff on counter...could be worse problems I guess
