The never-ending need of closet space should be taken care of once and for all when building. If it was not done, here is a good idea for remodeling at small expense if you are doing a room over. In a bedroom used by two people two closets are a joyone fitted for a woman and the other for a man. Dry building could be used to install these closets, and so avoid the dust and dirt of plaster. That is, hard wallboard, of which there are a number of good brands consult your lumber dealer is nailed to studding and may be painted or papered to match the room. Consider your room to see where one or two closets, or one long closet with two doors, may be built to improve, not injure, the architecture of the room. an attractive offset is made in the room above by the two closets. They provide a frame for the windows and an excellent place for a Colonial highboy or any other high piece of furniture. This, by the way, is a very charming room furnished in the Colonial manner. a floivereil wallpapev is the background for white paint, rose-beige rug, Colonial maple highboy bureau, and four-poster canopy bed. The dotted swiss ruffled curtains, bedspread, bed canopy, and
dressing table are white with valances and trimmings of blue. In the upper picture below, two closets are built, one on either side of a window, but they are deeper than the ones on the opposite page. The doors are placed in the offset, giving needed wall space in this smaller room. When there is no window at the end of a narrow room, the closets may be built across the entire end or in such a way that a niche is left in the center for a dressing table with indirect light above it. When remodeling, consider fluorescent lighting.
CLOSETS AT END of a long, narrow room, placed as in the photograph to the right, keep the needed wall space for furniture and the light from the window without spoiling the symmetry of this rather small room
CLOSETS IN THE MODERN room to the right also are a structural part of the plan and contain drawers as well as hanging space. This obviates the need for a piece of furniturea built-in feature that foretells what we may expect in future building
WINDOW AND CORNER are both utilized here. The bookcase is put under the window and a kidney dressing table is in the corner. A triple mirror is attached to the back of the table. Wallpaper is used to the ceiling line and inside the dormer, to give all possible height to the room.
