One of our clients needed to dedicate a full closet to sports equipment for the kids. Gloves, hats and baseball bags were being left everywhere because there was no one closet or space that easily fit all the stuff. We took the biggest closet in the center of the house and emptied it of its contents. All the off season hanging clothes that had been there were consolidated and moved into the downstairs guest room. This left the whole closet to house all the sports equipment, accessories and bags. We were also able to use a shelf for water and insulated bags/water containers for lunches and snacks and drinks.
It was a huge success! Mainly because everything had its own logical and easy-to-reach place. The kids come into the house and put their bags, shoes and gear away and close the door.
Big. Huge. Sigh.
