First. Do you guys think the standard depth of 24" inside for a closet is a good size? 36" door for a mud room/laundry room area.

Second check out this sweet floor.

I make closets 28" or 30" deep, finished; depending on who is using the room.

28" for a bedroom closet, 30" for one that will hold coats and be used for storage.

No one ever says " I wish there was less room in this closet" . I agree go 28-30 if u have the room.

This project is a new drywall, plumbing, lights, and floor. Nothing major really. Room was probably last remodeled in 1985. Little ceiling tiles, plaster walls, carpet that was so old it was falling apart, weird plumbing and drain, and the weird closets made out of paneling

Took out a terrible window. It was wood and badly rotted. I had to tear it out. Rebuild the frame and block it off. Room really doesn't need a window. Added the all in one water taps and drain box.

If it depends on who is using the room, I hope you made your closet big enough since your wife has to have a place to put you to have some peace around the house.

Headed into the same project soon, expanding a hall closet into laundry room. Unfortunately for my son, he will have to walk through new laundry room to access his bedroom.

I just spent another 12 hours in the laundry room. Back to my real job tomorrow. I need a break from working at home! Pretty bad I have to go to work to rest up!
