Have you ever met someone who had too much storage space in their home? It’s probably never happened.

If lack of space, disorganization and clutter stress you out, consider:

Linen closets: One of the hallmarks of a well-thought-out home plan is linen storage. Typically located in or near bath areas, will the linen closets/cabinets be adequate for extra pillows, comforters and sheet sets, as well as towels and washcloths?

Bedroom closets:“More closet space” is one of the most often mentioned reasons for buying a new home. Stuff multiplies—we’re not sure how! But in addition to bigger closets, closet systems can actually help you organize and store twice as many items as the standard rod and shelf approach!

Bulk items/Cleaning supplies: Where do you keep the jumbo 12-roll pack of paper towels? Or cleaning supplies, some of which need to be stored out of the reach of children? Consider an oversized closet, shelving off the rear foyer, or perhaps a broom closet or extra cabinetry in the laundry room.
