Amp Up Your Storage Space
Designer: Ty Larkins
Size: 65 square feet
Before: It was a plain drywall box with hardwood flooring. Let's be honest—don't all of our closets look like that?
The Transformation: "Aesthetically, I wanted to create an old-school gentleman's haberdashery that also felt fashion forward," Ty says. "To do so, I painted the entire space a dark chocolate brown and added classic detailing, such as vintage hardware on the built-in drawers to give them the look of a freestanding antique English chest."
Small-Space Advice: "Switch outdated knobs or pulls. It does wonders on old furniture."
