How big should a broom closet be?

All you need is about 18 inches in width and depth -- even 16 inches will suffice -- and ideally 72 inches of height. Broom closet height can be as short as about 65 inches, but adding a few inches to the top lets you include a shelf for cleaning supplies.

If the only tools that need storing are a broom and a basic mop, you may be able to do a broom cupboard as shallow as 6 inches deep. Even a very shallow cabinet can hold a broom, a stepladder and essential cleaning supplies, as shown here. If you have a stick vacuum or bulky mop, you may require 12 or 16 inches.
