Renter’s Guide To Improvements: Closet Edition

Many renters are focused on closet space. Sometimes, you cannot find the space you need or the design you have been looking for. There are ways, though, that you can make the most of a small closet so you can make it more like what you are looking for. No rental is perfect but if you can make the most of what you have, you are succeeding. Follow these tips to get the most out of the space. 

  • Remove the shelves if they do not work for you. You can easily remove these and put them back when you leave. They are generally just screwed into the wall. This makes it an easy transition both when you move in and when you move out. 
  • Add more shelves if needed. You can get bracket mounted shelves at any local hardware store. Once you are ready to move out, you will just need to remove them and spackle the walls. 
  • Remove the door. If you need more room, one easy way to do this is to remove the closet door. You can always put it back before you move out and this is as easy as removing the door from the hinges. 
  • If the space simply does not work for a closet, rethink it. You may be able to use it as a little desk area. Think outside the box and make sure you get the most out of the space, even if you do not use it as a closet. 

If you are a renter, you should have rental insurance to make sure all of your belongings are protected. Your landlord’s insurance does not cover your belongings. Contact Runnels Insurance serving Brandon, FL to explore your options and choose an insurance plan that is right for you.
