Simple + Organized Master Bedroom Tour
Check out our simple and organized farmhouse master bedroom tour. We try to maintain a minimal home, especially in this room! That calming, peaceful atmosphere is what I want to wake up to each morning and go to bed with each night.

While our home is definitely on the smaller side (1600 square feet), our master bedroom is surprisingly spacious. But we definitely do everything we can to make this space feel larger and more open while also including the storage and organizational elements we need.
Our bedroom is located right off our very open dining room, kitchen, and living room. So keeping it tidy on a regular basis is a must. As soon as you take about 5 steps inside our home, you can see a full view of our master bedroom!
When we first moved into our home, I was worried about this. Our master bedroom had been a dumping ground for so long. If we didn’t know what to do with something, into our master bedroom it went! It definitely didn’t create the peaceful, relaxing environment I was going for.
However, when we moved into this home I was forced to simplify even more. And it’s been one of the best things about this house!
So let’s jump right into our master bedroom tour! I’ll give you a peek at how things are setup, how we keep things organized, and feeling tidy and relaxing! Plus, I’ve included a source list at the end of this article for our convenience.
Master Bedroom Tour
As you enter our bedroom, you will see a large 10′ barn door storage unit on the right wall. We built this piece about a year ago. It’s probably one of my favorite pieces of furniture we’ve ever built! It contains so much hidden storage while also acting as a statement piece in the room.
Behind the barn doors is where we house our television, books, photo albums, DVDs, and all of the technology equipment. I love how these barn doors are a beautiful way to hide all those things that we use regularly, but aren’t aesthetically pleasing to the eye!
Underneath both outside bookcases are two storage cabinets. This is where I keep my decor that I like to switch out. This isn’t seasonal decor, but just everyday items. I use these cabinets as my limit for how much decor I can keep. I really love decor, and if I didn’t give myself limits I would likely have an entire closet dedicated to it! This isn’t my most organized space, but everything fits and I can close the doors so I call that a win!
In the corner, we have a long mirror that we DIYed using a cheap mirror from Walmart and some old fence panels we had lying around.
We have two doors on this far wall. The right side is our closet and the left side is our master bathroom. Between the two, we have our “office space.” Since we live in a small home, we do have our office in our master bedroom. And while this is probably breaking all kinds of rules, it works for us.
Honestly, the work is not what stresses me out. It’s the clutter that can accumulate on the open surfaces! So I make a conscious effort to clear off any clutter at the end of each day. This really helps this space to feel like less of a “work space” and more of an extension of our bedroom.
We do have a small work station with our printer and office supplies setup in our master closet. So our two desk drawers just need to house my everyday office supplies. They hold things like pens, post-it notes, binder clips, my notebook, scissors, and my external hard drive.
Continuing around the room, you’ll find my nightstand. I love the look of a simply decorated nightstand. I utilize the drawer for things like our remotes, my headphones, chapstick, lotion, etc. The basket below is where I store my Bible, journal, whatever books I’m working my way through, and a small pencil tote with my Bible pens and highlighters.
We built our king farmhouse bed using plans from Ana White almost 3 years ago. It is stained in Briarsmoke. I love this piece of furniture and can envision this in our bedroom for many years to come! Our bedding is the pick-stitch quilt from Pottery Barn. I’ve linked everything I can in the source list below!
The last wall in our home contains just our dresser with a framed mirror above. This dresser is an antique and belonged to my great aunt many decades ago. I painted it white a few years back and I feel like it fits with our space much better. However, I’m sure in the next few years we will built ourselves a dresser for this space!
We share this dresser so that forces us to only keep what we actually use day in and day out. I think giving yourself limits is one of the best ways to keep clutter at bay.
The frame is another DIY project. We hung a basic frame from Menards on the wall and created a frame out of 1x4s and some decorative metal hardware.
And that’s the entire tour around our simple, yet organized master bedroom. If you’re bedroom has become a dumping ground for clutter or isn’t a space you love to be, then I hope this encourages you to make some changes. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to create a relaxing and peaceful environment. Simply getting rid of the unwanted clutter can go a long way!
