I just love that some bloggers are doing with their entry closets. Isn't this cute?

Clever use indeed. What a blessing it would be to have extra closets. This example also expands the narrow entryway.

We once converted one of two closets, in my then preschool son 's room, to a desk space. These days mine are brimming so I have to make use of dead space (different house) .

That's very pretty, but would only work (for me) if we didn't use that entry - too much "stuff" to hide!

One of my bigger regrets with the kitchen remodel (maybe the only regret) is that we didn't tear the shelves out of the closet in the laundry and convert it to a coat and/or broom closet. would not have been hard to do and so much needed...

Yes, the the beadboard is great and on the horizontal.

I used it in my recent kitchen/bath redo and it really adds a cottage vibe. Wish I had thought of running it sideways.

Well those are charming and delightful displays.

However that is key charming and delightful displays. doesn't need to be in a closet. Look around your own homes and see what nook or cranny can be equally enhanced!

Cute, but rather impractical IMHO! It looks nice, but where do you actually put coats, shoes, boots, and all of the assorted paraphernalia that usually hide in a closet?
Confused

It reminds me of something one would see in a model home or designer show house, not an actual home where people really live.

Again, very cute, but.....JMHO

This idea would be better in a back entry vs a formal main entry. I. Have such a narrow entry coming off our garage. It has a long shallow closet similar to the one pictured. I. Have a space saving small bench in that hallway. The bench seat flips up for storage. I can not spare that closet or bench currently, but this conversion would deglfinitly open it up. The hooks behind the bench could serve to hang hats, scarves, umbrellas, coats. A storage bench could house shoes/boots.

Agree, it does appear to be typical model-home style. It would definitely enhance the feeling of spaciousness but not be terribly practical.

Good idea to borrow some of the concepts for another space instead of losing a much needed hall/coat closet.

JMHO.
