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.
