When it comes to master bedrooms and master bathrooms, there are hundreds of ways to store items well and keep your suite a retreat. This master bedroom, closet, and bathroom utilizes 25 super smart tricks that you can use in your own space.
Off-the-shelf storage units turn into a one-of-a-kind storage unit in this comfortable, pretty master bedroom. The homeowners took advantage of height -- grouping two tall units together -- as well as closed and open units thanks to doors and boxes. A platform bed offers storage, too, for extra blankets and more.
Drawer dividers help keep drawers in tip-top shape, separating items such as socks and underwear.
The same shelving units that frame the bed were laid horizontally to form the platform bed. Baskets conceal hidden storage, but when removed, items beneath the bed are easily accessible. The space beneath the bed is perfect for storing long items, such as wrapping paper rolls, yoga mats, and even skis.
On the other side of the room, staggered open shelves help to break up a large expanse of wall space. In place of a blank wall, the homeowners had a clever built-in installed, with a built-in bench (check out the storage underneath) and shelves.
Small stretches of wall space next to windows and doors are all too often ignored when it comes to master bedroom storage. Here, a trio of clever shelves with heft offers space for artful display of treasured mementos.
You’ll be more likely to keep your master bedroom closet storage uncluttered if you use this expert trick: Buy the same type of hanger for the same type of clothing. For example, all the men’s shirts in this space have a sturdy wooden hanger, while the women’s dresses utilize a plastic version with a hook for any accessories.
Just a few inches of storage is all it takes to gather what would otherwise be awkward storage clutter in a drawer or on a shelf. Here, a fabric holder with loops offers a convenient storage spot for hanging belts and scarves.
Once you dive into the world of master bedroom storage, you’ll be quick to find out that for every type of need, there’s a type of storage. Some are particularly useful, such as this sliding tie holder. It offers the vertical storage space that’s required without taking up too much width.
Storage is often basic and unadorned, but to display pretty items, look for pretty trays or containers. Or, paper the inside of a shelf or tray with decorative paper, as with this piece that gathers bracelets and watches.
Different heights of shelves offer more flexibility in a master bedroom closet. If you don’t want to fuss with built-in shelves, try dividers that slip into larger spaces -- used here to keep track of thinner T-shirts and other items.
Dividers are great for drawers, but inexpensive versions work well for open shelves, too. Here, tall wire options keep a collection of bags separated; the same type would work well for stacks of sweaters or T-shirts.
Items that you can’t see tend to stay unused, and that goes for shoes. Opt for a storage unit that keeps pairs divided but on view, with different size cubbies for different types of shoes -- whether they're flats, heels, or sneakers.
Mass-market storage items such as hanging rods, hooks, and baskets are remarkably adaptable for a variety of rooms and items. Sponges, brushes, loofahs, and more find a perfect spot in this narrow area.
One of the really great things about the evolution of personalized design, even as it relates to storage, is the ability to fearlessly mix and match materials and styles. Finished wood with unfinished wood? No problem, as demonstrated by this lovely, casual master bathroom accessory. If you have a slim wall space, a storage bar such as this can be a great way to display and access towels or other small items.
