I think I would have one wall of saddles and bridles/headstalls

Then have a shelf underneath and have bins with your polo wraps, saddle pads/blankets/boots are kept
Have a chest full of vet stuff
Have all your driving stuff (harnesses) on another wall.. and then your grain can snuggle somewhere so it's not in the way.

Brushes you can just keep a little tackbox with that kind of stuff.

Let me see if I can draw it on paint..

Also keep in mind idk what your space actually looks like.. so made an educated guess.

The shelves are underneath the saddle and bridle racks, and there is one on the wall next to one of the doors. Storage trunks under the shelves but you can also put stuff on the shelves.

Big green circle is grain barrel and the blue thing is drawer for supplements (like smartpak has)

I love this!!!! And its almost spot on, just the extra door is on the left, opposite of where you have it. I quite like this idea/ plan :) thank you!!!

And I actually keep my grain in an over sized cooler, yes its weird but hey: no mice, easy open/ close, and its easy to clean out :) And I got a bunch of stacking shelves; the open kind with a bucket and holes on the sides. They're perfect: I can attach things to them and organize everything.

I'm not a fan of the shelf under the bridle racks. We had that at the barn I used to manage, and I got so pissed at continually knocking stuff off the shelf whenever I would grab a bridle.

I would grab a bridle and a rein would catch my showsheen which hits the floor and breaks the nozzle.

So when I built my own tack room, I dropped the height of the bridle racks where the shelf would be and added a shelf on top of the bridles racks. I can pull stuff off the shelf without getting it tangled in reins and bridle parts and vice versa.

You can see a picture of it here: Tack room pictures?

Use cork board. YOu can get hooks special for it and that's what I use in my trailer. My neighbor's tack room walls have that on them and she rearranges everything really quick since the hooks are so easy to use. I bet you can get corkboard from any hardware store I'd think. That's my favorite thing to use!

Our tack room is by no means large but we tried to make the most of what space we have. Here's one of it empty so your not distracted by all my clutter.

Sorry about that, here are the pictures...We built the shelves to hold plastic bins from lowes that hold misc. Items. There is also a blanket tree in the far right corner which you can't see.

Here's the area in my barn where I keep my tack and feed.

The cabinets came from a renovation we did in our kitchen. DH put them up then built the bench underneath. I have 2 saddles, an old harness I bought years ago, don't need, never did but cannot seem to part from. LOL

I also have this cool bridle rack that spins. It is mounted on an arm that now sticks out over that wooden saddle rack. It holds my 3 bridles and assorted halters and lead ropes. I bought it from Valley Vet and it does save a lot of space.

Where that wooden rack is now, in front of the harness hanging on the wall, I have a 6' tall vertical saddle rack that holds 3 saddles. A friend of DH's gave it to us.

I'm pretty sure that area is less than 12x12.
