Coat closets

Coat closets are the ideal place to store extra clothing and accessories.


This includes coats, jackets, shoes, gloves, hats, and even umbrellas.  They can also act as a de facto mudroom. A well-organized coat closet will help to make leaving the house easier and more convenient.  Typically, a coat closet is located near the front door. This is where you would hang the coats and boots of guests. It can also be used to store other important items, such as winter gear.

L Train Vintage is an independent thrift store with a family-owned history.

You can use a variety of methods to organize your coats, including hanging them on hangers, storing them in a bin, and using a step stool to tuck your coats and boots between them.

You can use thin rods or vertical clothesline wire. These are great for hanging seasonal accessories, but they can also be useful for keeping dust out of the air.
