Organize
Space Behind the Door

“Behind the door” can mean the actual back side of the door itself or the space that exists right behind the door.

When it comes to organizing, we try to purposely consider the use of every available space in our homes. We all do that to a certain extent, but how often do we remember all that unused space behind the doors? If you haven’t thought about that, open your refrigerator door to look at those shelves behind the door that hold all of your condiments and many, many other necessary and delicious additions to your food. You probably have some behind-the-door-use going on in your bathroom, with small shelves for tiny items in your medicine cabinet, or over the door towel racks or shelves for shaving or facial cleansing and moisturizing accessories.
Behind your closet doors, even if you have huge, walk-in closets, you could have over-the-door tie, scarf, or belt racks, jewelry hooks and hangers, or holders for other small items that could get lost in a huge closet, but right there as you open the door makes them easily and quickly accessible. It’s a perfect place to store those last-minute items that put the crowning touch on your ensemble.

Every room in your home has at least one door, and if you’re hungry for more space to put things, consider the space behind them. Our organizing and design teams can help you with that. Innovation can make your place unrecognizable and luxuriously more spacious than you thought it was.
“Behind the door” can mean the actual back side of the door itself or the space that exists right behind the door. When you open a closet door, sometimes you can’t open it very wide because the doorknob will bump into a wall. Other times there is all kinds of space between that doorknob and the wall that you can fill, maybe even put shelves on it for whatever you want it to do. A recessed space behind a door opens a dreamland of possibilities. You can showcase books or precious keepsakes on small shelves in that space behind the door because most of the time the door is closed and your items can shine.
