Looking for inspiration on how to design and organize your master bedroom closet? Check out how we designed our small master bedroom closet for maximum functionality and organization. This Master Closet Makeover shows you can still keep an organized home with small spaces!
When we were house hunting this summer, we fell in love with our “new” to us home. There were so many great features in this home and a few things were weren’t thrilled about but knew we could change. The master closet was one of those features we weren’t crazy about. The closet is a walk in, but is an odd triangular shape that is fairly small. The closet also only had one rod that ran across the closet.
So much wasted space! Needless to say we filled the closet up quickly and still had boxes stacked up in our bedroom. After living this way for a few months, our brother in law took pity on us and came to help us with our master closet makeover. We ran through a few design options and then got to work. A few important features for me were lots of shelving to hold various t-shirts, sweaters, out of season clothes, shoes, boots, jewelry and bags. We also wanted double rods to maximize the square footage. Because this closet receives NO natural light, I wanted to paint it a bright clean color and ended up choosing polar bear by Behr. Here are a few before and afters.
We have several baskets at the top of our closet that are currently empty but ready for extra storage when needed.
We have several baskets at the top of our closet that are currently empty but ready for extra storage when needed. I love how everything has a place. We were able to repurpose these baskets to organize my t-shirts, tank tops, etc.
Keeping things functional and pretty!
One great tip for making a closet look fabulous is to use matching hangers. It seemed to add some cohesion to the space. I’ve also bought more baskets to run the length of the very top surround shelf. The few in the photos were from Marshalls and I couldn’t find anymore so I switched to a few different styles I’ll link below if your interested in checking them out. I like the fabric baskets because they don’t leave marks on my newly primed and painted shelves like the wicker baskets I already owned.*affiliate links
