10 Favorites: Open Storage Ideas to Steal from Hotels

Lately weve 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

Wardrobe Racks
