(This is Part 2 of our new rental house tour. To see the Kitchen/Living/Dining Room, click here.)

The 3 bedrooms in this house are nearly identical in size.  The “Master” has a few more inches to play with, though.In contrast to Master Bedrooms designed with a dance floor and a sitting area with a fireplace, this one is more of the small variety.;)

We took measurements before we moved in so we had a bit of time to brainstorm furniture placement.  That helped immensely.

Here’s the before (real estate listing pic).

I wasn’t a fan of the furniture placement nor the “feeling” of the space. After lots of plotting and planning, here’s what we finally came up with:

 1.  Use a small chest of drawers as a night stand.

We measured very carefully and discovered if we scooted the bed over a bit from center, there was just enough room to squeeze a small dresser in. It works great.

2.  Consider arranging a long dresser at the foot of the bed.

There wasn’t room for another dresser along a side wall, so we were thrilled to discover it fit at the foot of the bed. It’s a nice alternative to a bench, and again provides needed storage space.

3. Coral small items in decorative boxes and baskets.

This bright and shiny box holds my earrings, bracelets, and rings. Having small items in a covered box makes it seem so much neater than a humble jumble pile on a tray!:)

Our closet came with a delightful built in organizer…but no door!

We decided to treat it like the open storage cupboards in the kitchen that I liked so much in the other house. Thankfully, I had a few baskets that fit perfectly (that I put shirts in) and another little basket for scarves.

Here’s hoping the “open closet storage” idea helps us keep it neat!;)

4.  Utilize hooks for large and small items.

The former tenants left us some handy dandy hooks in the room.

Two large hooks on the back of the door hold our robes,

and small hooks in the doorway of the closet hold necklaces and belts.

5.  Add lighting to make reading comfortable.

Rather than our previous wall-mounted lights, we chose to use some extra table lamps for our bedside reading. It works great, and leaves the option open to add curtains someday. (I can’t wait!)

  1. I too have open closets in our master bedroom. I was going to hang curtains but never got around to it. I use small command hooks on the back of the closet for my necklaces. Don’t forget about under the bed – I have slim Rubbermaid containers for off season clothing.
    Looking very organized and so quickly-good for you!

  2. We also have a teeny tiny master bedroom and while we can’t slide rubber maid totes under the bed, we can lift the bed up and stash blankets stored in vacuum seal bags. This works great for off season blankets and extra blankets/sheets for company.

  3. When we were first married, we lived in a tiny tiny mobile home. By the end of our time in there, we had 2 children, so the bigger bedroom had the children and the smaller bedroom was ours. It held one double bed – when we opened the door, we had to jump right in to it. No organizing at all! Haha!
