Gone are the days of conventional dressers and wardrobes. If a piece of furniture is going to play a major design role in your bedroom, find something you’ll enjoy looking at every day. Try a glass front cabinet for an even more spacious look.

Garment racks have become the icon for minimalist closets. They come in a wide variety of colors and styles, as well as price ranges. Garment racks can be packed with as much or as little clothing as you’d like, but for a cleaner look, go with as little as you can. Color coordinating is a very popular look when it comes to styling a garment rack. Have too many busy colors and patterns for your liking? Designate a drawer for your wilder items.

Wall-Mounted Shelving


Installing shelves is a task that can seem daunting, but should not be feared. Shelving is easy to install and can completely upgrade the look of a room — not to mention add a lot of storage.


Last but not least, you can combine all three ideas: Furniture, hanging racks, and shelving. All so easy to create in your own room.
