Closets are the new master baths

From the new 744-page Martha Stewart’s Homekeeping Handbook: The Essential Guide to Caring for Everything in Your Home:

"Talk to any Realtor and you will hear this over and over: Closets are the new master baths. Storage is now more important to home buyers than giant bathrooms. The closets need to be big, with sensible and useful design."

I am not the biggest Martha fan in the world, but this makes a lot of sense.  Americans have more stuff than ever, and they need the storage!  I think this is a very interesting observation.  I would also add that garages are more important now as well, for the same reason.  See my previous post called "Pimp my Garage."

This is important because clutter can have a disabling effect on people and an organized closet can help start your day off on the right foot!
