Can there ever be enough closets…

I love to watch House Hunters International on HGTV. It is really interesting to see how the rest of the world lives. One thing is for sure, no where else on the planet do people use/need more closet space than we do in the US. In fact, in most of the shows I see, there is generally one small clothes closet, in a master bedroom, and maybe some “up” space in another room for storage.

And it’s only the Americans who even mention closets on this show. Most Europeans don’t even bat an eyelash over the lack of closet space. So what is it about our love affair with closets? Why do we have so much stuff to hide? Which came first, the stuff or the closets to stuff it in?


This is the new apartment of my friends who have moved to Holland…not a closet in sight! This apartment is for 2 adults and one child.
