If your home didn’t come equipped with a lot of storage, it could be a struggle to hide unsightly cleaning supplies in your kitchen, garage, entryway, laundry room, or bathroom. But when left out on the counter or shoved underneath the sink, your handy tools can quickly create a cluttered mess and claim more real estate than you would like.
A free-standing broom closet or utility closet is a perfect solution for homes without ample storage space. With plenty of room to organize your belongings, a pantry, supply, or storage cabinet keeps your space clutter-free and creates a hiding place. Besides cleaning supplies, broom closets can be used to store kitchen broom, cleaning tools, linens, kitchen gadgets, toilet paper, and just about anything else you can think of.
To help you find the perfect storage solution for your space, we’ve rounded up the best broom closets for hiding mops, brooms, and other cleaning supplies.
