I know these types of closets are common in older houses, i would love to hear suggestions of what other people have done with them to make them more functional in a small kitchen. Thank you! Sent by Susan Editor: Susan, what about adding simple shelves? This is the sort of improvement that landlords generally don't mind at all, and it would turn this closet into a great little pantry. Readers, what else would you suggest?
