The closet is definitely the main bedroom tool for maintaining order and harmony in the room. It can come in different sizes, and this will depend on the distribution of your home. Regardless of whether the closet area is separate from the bedroom, or maybe in a corner inside it, the important thing is to always keep a good distribution of space with this feature.
