When I moved into my small studio apartment, I asked the landlord to take out the closet door so I could place my bed next to it and not have to worry about the door clearance – not wanting to look at my stuff in the closet, a tension rod and a curtain was the perfect solution to close off the closet while still providing easy access.
(Meet my cat Lia – she decided she absolutely had to be in the picture – she loves posing!)
That’s a pretty conventional use of a tension rod, to put up a curtain. Well, after spending some quality time on Pinterest, I have now discovered a whole new world of possibilities: turns out that tension rods are workhorses for better organization, from shoe storage to kitchen cupboards to organizing your cleaning supplies under your bathroom cabinet.
