Space efficiency is often the top priority for small bedroom owners that want to keep everything within reach, while maintaining a clutter-free room. Even if your bedroom is sizeable enough, you can make better use of the space by cleverly making use of the furniture you cannot live without, such as the bed, headboard and side table. Read on for some great tips on how you can create more storage with bedroom furniture.
1. Use a desk as a nightstand
Adding more purpose to a furniture piece can enable you to replace two items with one. Make that appropriately sized reading table dual-purpose by moving it beside your bed and placing some flowers on top to make it double as a side-table.
2. Reclaim empty wall space with shelves
Is the area around your headboard or windows free? Use shelves as frames and add more storage, as well as aesthetics.
3. Storage bench
If you barely have any usable space between the foot of your bed and the wall, make better use of it with a storage bench. You can place anything, from extra pillows and blankets to books and candles neatly on top.
4. Floating furniture
No floor space for a traditional nightstand or vanity? Mount one on the wall and you will be good to go. Floating furniture frees up the floor, giving your bedroom an open, airy feel.
5. Storage behind the door
If you don’t have appropriate space for small items like handbags or ties, use hooks and mounted baskets to make your door do double duty.
6. Baskets under the bed
If your bed has some clearance from the floor, go shopping for some appropriately designed baskets to tuck away clutter while adding texture to your bedroom
7. Shelf-desk combos
Do not leave the space above your desk empty. Put a fitting shelf on top for some much-needed additional storage.
8. Ottoman storage beds
Beds are the most cumbersome piece of furniture in most bedrooms. If you cannot trade in the comfort of your king-size bed for the space to place a cabinet, why not get a bed with storage space under the mattress?
9. Mirrored door wardrobes
A modern-looking wardrobe with a sliding mirror for a door not only enhances your space visually, but also eliminates the need to accommodate floor space for swinging doors.
10 Multi-tiered accessories
If your dresser is constantly filling up with clutter, replace your single-level placement plates with multi-tiered ones. Get one that also acts as an intriguing design piece to style up your room.
When space is a concern, it can be challenging to maximize functionality while keeping your furniture at a minimum. Let the inspiring suggestions above be your guide towards creating more storage in your bedroom.
