Repurposing a Closet
 
1 Attachment(s)
We have purchased a new home. The main floor with kitchen, living room and family room have been completely renovated but the basement needs some work. The family room area down there where they have their tv and couches has a closet with sliding doors like you would find in a bedroom. We don't need the closet and are wondering what we should do with the space. Any thoughts?

Will try and attach a pic.

Don't know your family's needs and preferences....

but, I have seen several closets turned into mini-offices, by appropriate built in desk, shelving, and cabinets.... where the chair actually accesses the desk from outside the closet.

You will need bi-folds (not sliders,) or even a more complicated bi-fold that tucks back into the closet when open on a full ball bearing drawer slide.

The advantage is that you can close the doors to the normal desk cluter when you want to... that might be applicable in your TV/Entertainment room. (The chair normally pushes under the desk and gets enclosed also)

Or how about a Baptist Bar as it's known in Texas/Bible Country. The office is replaced with a wet bar, that you can close up quickly when the preacher shows up.

Good luck

Best

(Or maybe a go-go cage?)

I like that......

BTW......nice looking basement....

If it was me.....those closet walls would have already been down and a true Irish bar installed.....but that is me.
