Contemporary compact residence by Ze Arquitectura

This contemporary compact residence is located in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. It was a project designed by Ze Arquitectura and it’s a very functional house. The process began by searching for a central backyard that would later become the background for all the interior spaces.

How to make your closet bigger and more functional

Storage space is never enough and this is especially true when it comes to closets. Here’s an example of how someone managed to improve their master closet and make it more spacious and easier to access. The idea was to create a design that will keep everything neat and organized so that you won’t need to take everything out to find the item that you need. Also, a chic touch is always welcomed.

For a more stylish look, this closet got some new leopard print wallpaper for the background. Then it needed something functional, like some little cubbies where you could store your bags or shoes or anything else. The idea is that they are small enough to force you to be organized but still big so that you can use one for several items. One section of that wall was reserved for longer hanging items. This way they will stay there nice and organized and you won’t have to bother finding a place for them.
