DIY Closet Conversion

Reimagined as a home office or a study nook, a closet packs a lot of potential into a small space. Sponsor content courtesy of HART Tools.

Whether you’re transitioning to a hybrid schedule or working from home full time, having a dedicated space to get work done is key to your quality of life. But if you think you don’t have room for a home office, think again.

Here, sibling design duo Steve and Leanne Ford show us how to transform a cluttered closet into a fabulous, functional work space—a “cloffice.” And they #DoItWithHart.

To ensure shelves line up properly, Steve uses a HART 24" I-Beam Level, choosing the longer length to yield greater accuracy.

A HART Impact Driver makes it easy for Leanne to fasten shelf cleats to the back wall, forming a strong base for the plywood topper.

What a reach-in closet lacks in width, it makes up for in height. Maximize use of vertical space with two levels of shelving to keep your work surface clutter-free. And select a chair that neatly tucks under the desk so you can simply close the door to put work away at the end of the day.

Place photos and artwork on the walls; add a few books, collectibles and a plant to personalize your space.
