A Cluttered No-Purpose Closet Becomes an Organized Cleaning Closet. #BrightIdeas

Jessica from Four Generations One Roof shows how an ordinary "broom" closet can be the centerpiece of a home's cleaning and organizing supplies.

Step
When you don't give a closet a true purpose, it becomes the place where random things are just thrown. Jessica's no-purpose closet was the landing ground for her husband's random music equipment and bath items.
Step
The project begins with a good cleaning. She used Swiffer Steamboost™ to clean up tons of dirt.
Step
She then removed existing shelves and added a fresh coat of white paint. But prior to painting, she cleaned with soap and water using Bounty™ paper towels.
Step
Jessica recommends a Satin or semi-gloss paint - it cleans up very easily with water.
Step
Once the shelves were painted, she installed wire pullout baskets by Closet-Maid purchased at The Home Depot.
Step
Installing a pullout wire basket by Closet-Maid is a great way to keep items in one place and organized, especially in deep closets where items get lost in the back. This simple 5-minute install was a process of fastening the frame with 4 screws then sliding the basket on top.
Step
Pull out baskets are perfect for keeping toilet paper rolls & cleaning towels organized and in one place.
Step
The closet is now neatly organized with a place for storing laundry detergent, paper towels, toilet paper and cleaning items. Hanging a hook on an outside wall is a great way to keep brooms and floor mops organized and off the floor.
Step
Leaving room at the bottom of a closet is a perfect place to store a step stool and cleaning buckets.
