10 Favorites: Open Storage Ideas to Steal from Hotels

Native Hotel in Malibu

Lately we’ve noticed a change in hotel storage solutions: Thanks to peg rails, pegboards, and wardrobe racks, guest-room amenities and guests’ belongings no longer have to be hidden behind closets. Here are 10 of our favorite hotel rooms with exposed storage.

Peg Rails

Alex Hotel

Jennings Hotel Room 4.75
Above: Room 4.75 at the Jennings Hotel in Oregon has a wraparound peg rail to hold hotel accessories as well as guests’ clothing.
Moxy Hotel in NYC

Pegboards

Dog Fish Inn

Hobo Hotel in Stockholm
Above: As of late, we’ve been seeing birch plywood pegboards hung all over the house. But this is the first time we’ve seen pegs applied to the upper reaches of a room at the Hobo Hotel in Stockholm.

Wardrobe Racks

Coachman Hotel

Native Hotel in Malibu

Margot Hotel Barcelon

The open wardrobe trend isn’t just restricted to modern hotels; an exposed clothes rail looks just as apropos in a rustic room at Casa Telmo in Menorca, Spain.
