Entryway armoire – If you have a closet that is close to the front door and you want to maximize your space, consider converting your wardrobe into a passenger seat. An unused wardrobe can be converted to make an inviting stay for your guests. Walk-in wardrobes can provide a spacious locker, while smaller sized wardrobes can provide a small foyer for your guests to walk through to access the rest of the home. After developing a plan for the new space, you can start making the necessary architectural changes.
