The Master Suite

Feb 1

Happy Friday!

Today I’m sharing a bit more of my rental home tour…a view into the master suite. As with each space I’ve shared, I’m also sharing organization solutions in the space and additional ideas / where you can find them for your own home.

First, let me show you around!

On the right side of the room is my bed…

On the left side of the room is a sitting area…

If you’ve been reading a while and were familiar with our previous home, those leather chairs used to be in the kitchen. I love furniture with versatility.

I love how happy and pretty this chair is…

It’s pretty comfortable too…not that I’m ever sitting in it for very long. #psh

Normally I’d not have a tv this large in a bedroom. However, we’re making due in this house as it doesn’t happen to fit anywhere else…

The bathroom is bright and pretty too…

Plenty of drawers and cabinets to stow away items…

And a luxurious whirlpool bathtub…

Which had not been cleaned for quite a while…earlier this week I shared how to clean the jets

If this was my home, I’d definitely make changes to this space…namely, the shower…

While it’s a generous size, the placement of the shower head doesn’t make it easy for hopping in once the water is going. It aims directly at the door. Yikes!

Just beyond the shower is a great built-in set of drawers. I imagine this would be perfect for storing towels and other linens…

A view into the master closet…

The closet is a square shape with lots of shelving and hanging space for clothes wrapping the entire perimeter…

A few features I love are the island…there are 10 drawers on each side…

The full-length mirror hidden behind the door…

And the large table-top above the island. This has been great for folding and keeping items within reach…

There’s also a small toilet room, but imagine you don’t really want to see that up close and personal.

Now that you’ve seen the space, here’s some of my organization solutions and easy ways you can organization your own space for very little money.

In the sitting area, you may have noticed this dresser….

Because I have a great closet size (here and in my previous home), this dresser has been used to store away all of the bedding – summer and winter. If you have a generous closet, and own a dresser, this is a great way to make use of the piece.

You’ll also notice on the floor next to the dresser I have a little unorganized secret hidden away…

Yup, even the most organized people in the world have their secret unorganized spaces. The magazine topic happens to be my downfall. Normally, when it comes to magazines I’m pretty cut-throat and recycle them every few weeks – whether they have been read or not. But with everything going on during the fall and into the winter…with the sale of the house and move to the rental…I missed out on thumbing through some of my most favorite magazines during my favorite time of year. I can’t bring myself to recycle them just yet. I’ll be sifting through them soon and purging. Typically I try to keep my collection to only what fits in the teal bin. I shared more about that topic right here.

As far as bathroom organization, I enjoy drawers that are neat and tidy. Inexpensive plastic caddies/dividers make it possible to keep like items together and from rolling all over the place.

The dividers were purchased from walmart for little money. Walmart gives you more bang for your buck by selling them to you at a small price and in sets of 2, 3 or 4.

When you have organized drawers, it makes more room to store away items while leaving your countertops free to display only the pretty things…

Above the toilet, there is a built-in cabinet. As in our previous home, I have extra supplies organized and stored away in here…

This valet was a father’s day gift years ago…

It’s a great spot to drop keys, glasses, a  phone and random items that come out of pockets at the end of the day. I purchased this one from red envelope. It’s a great way to keep everything in one place – especially when you’re renting a home and don’t want to mount a wall organizer like i did in our previous home.

Here are some inexpensive ways to maximize space in your own bathroom…

I love the individual drawer organizers (1 and 2) because you can customize to fit any size or shape drawer. The white plastic set of 2 caddies (3) is from walmart – that is what I have in the bathroom drawers…inexpensive and simple yet gets the job done!

When it comes to items you may have out on the bathroom counter or in your bedroom, I like to make them a little prettier. The large glass jar (1) is a great way to stow away bars of soap (shared before in our home right here). And the small glass jars (3) are a pretty storage solution for cotton balls, q-tips or even colorful jars of nail polish. The brocade basket is a pretty way to store magazines…or keep your magazine supply in check…unlike me. These could also be used for holding toilet paper rolls, hand towels, washcloths or even small clothing items in your closet.

Hope you enjoyed a view into the “temporary” master suite!

    Where did you purchase the teal basket?

    Sarah

    • hi sarah,

      i randomly found the basket on clearance at our local grocery store. we have a market that is sorta like a super walmart, but not a walmart. it was in their home clearance section.

      sorry i can't be of more help with a specific website to order from or anything!
      sam 🙂
