Looking to organize your own vacation home? Here are a few tips for making the most space in the master bedroom in your home-away-from-home:

Closet with open folding doors

  1. If the master bedroom in your vacation home is on the smaller side, consider ditching the dresser and using drawers in the closet to free up floor space. Leaving the floor more open will also give the room that breezy, vacation vibe.
  2. Closet accessories like valet poles and slide-out baskets can be the perfect finishing elements in vacation home organization. A valet pole is just the right spot to hang a sun hat or a damp bathing suit. Baskets can hold extra towels or linens as needed.
  3. Make the elements in your vacation home’s master bedroom play double duty by incorporating storage. A comfy window seat makes a great perch to watch sunsets from, while also providing extra storage space underneath with shoes shelves and cabinets.
