Where do you store your kitchen swiffer/brooms?

My hubs and I are in the throes of a kitchen reno and it just occurred to me we don't have a place to store our brooms/sweeper. I'd love to hear your ideas! We are unfortunately limited in space so creative solutions are welcome.

We had a 12" space left between the fridge and the wall that we tasked as a broom closet:

We did a tall cabinet over a two-drawer base. The advantage is that the brooms, etc. are right there. The disadvantage is that because the cabinet is narrow but deep, we needed to do a better job of organizing the stuff inside. Only the items at the front are easy to access.

We have a broom closet in the mudroom which is around the corner from the kitchen where the vacuum parts and the sweepers go.

I have one broom/dustpan and swiffer hanging on the wall of a tiny coat closet at the edge of the kitchen (beside the back door). Everything else is in the basement.

In our previous home, we had a small tall closet next to a pantry cabinet, a few steps from the main part of the kitchen. In our current condo, we will just hang them on the wall in the small room (6' long x 4-1/2' wide) that houses the stacked washer & dryer. We'll also have shelves in there for all the cleaning stuff (laundry, kitchen, floors, dustbuster, etc.)

We wanted a broom closet near our kitchen but the location where we wanted to put it, around the corner in the living room, would have looked odd if there was a door there. The solution I came up with was to build a custom bookcase door.
Of course part of the reason for doing this is just that having a hidden door/secret room seemed like a really cool idea.

Don't forget to put an electrical outlet inside if you plan to keep anything that might require charging. Actually, even if you don't need it right now, I'd put one in anyway - you never know what you might need in the future!
