First time home buyer. I have a skinny closet at the back entry. It is 16.5" wide. I thought about putting a cushion bench inside but it's a bit too snug I think. The closet is awkward. It's too skinny for a seating bench and too deep for wasted shelves that I have no clue what I would out on a shelf. There is an array of random coat hangers drilled in at two levels. I would hate for it to be just a coat cubby.
