Smart Ways to Create More Bedroom Storage

by admin on 2016-02-25

Your bedroom should be a place to relax and unwind, a haven from life’s chaos. But we’ve all been there—clutter piles up in the bedroom with piles of dirty clothes, shoes are jumbled in an overstuffed closet, and there just aren’t enough storage spaces to neatly store every blanket and bedside book.

Before you blame a lack of home space, how are you utilizing the space you currently have? Here are 3 bedroom storage ideas to create more storage space within the space you have.

Stick it Under the Bed

The space beneath the bed provides additional options for storage and it’s also a convenient place to keep less-used items out of prime storage space. Specially designed under-bed wheeled boxes keep items out of sight but are easy to roll out when you need something. Suitcases can be stored beneath the bed when not in use and can double as storage for blankets, linens, and clothing.

Furniture Traditions suggests maximizing your space under the bed with a bed pedestal. It’s a smart and easy way to add a whole area of storage to your bedroom. A 4-Drawer Pedestal with full-extension drawers can add 13.4 cubic feet of space—more storage space than a big 10-drawer dresser.

Cabinets Instead of Nightstands

Double duty furniture can also serve as extra storage. If you have limited space around your bed, ditch the nightstands or bedside tables in favor of a headboard with cabinets to help you manage your messes and create a peaceful sleeping space.

Pier Group

The Pier Group headboard adds 20.3 cu. ft. of usable storage space, and provides dual lights with individual dimmer switches so that one person can read while the other sleeps. The bedside pull-out trays replace the need for a nightstand to hold your coffee, books and glasses. Hidden compartments house 2 USB ports and keep your electrical wiring from phones, clocks and radios out of sight and cedar-lined cabinets protect your belongings. It’s a smart way to add a whole area of extra space and functionality using the same floor space as 2 nightstands and a headboard.

Space Saving Vertical Furniture

Don’t let vertical space go to waste. In the bedroom, it can add that much needed extra storage space. Look for tall dressers and armoires to stretch your small bedroom’s storage space. Go for a compact entertainment center for your TV, stereo and related media, or free up floor space by using wall-mounted towers for DVDs and CDs.

12-Drawer Chest

A tall dresser, such as the 12-drawer Master-piece Chest, can add 11.5 cu. ft. of usable storage space to your bedroom.

TV Armoire

This TV Armoire hides the TV and adds 23.2 cu. ft. of usable storage space to the bedroom including multiple secret storage areas. It features a 1″ beveled mirror on the door, a fingerprint activated safe, two full extension, cedar-lined drawers, converts to a gun cabinet, and more. A truly multi-functional piece of furniture for the bedroom.

The Versatile TV Console

by admin on 2016-02-17

This deluxe 3-drawer TV console is one of the most versatile TV stands. With its generous size, most of today’s TVs will fit on top. At 65″ wide, this console will hold a very large TV. If not, you always have the option of mounting the TV on the wall.

Components are Covered

Underneath you’ll find plenty of room to accommodate multiple components. The smoked glass doors will hide your components, while still allowing your remote to work. A removable back panel allows for ease of access and installation of your components. Available from the front is a power strip to plug in all of your components. A custom ventilation system helps keep your components cool with the doors closed. All shelves are adjustable so you can customize for your personal needs.

How High Should the TV Be?

The basic guideline for the height of your TV is the lower half of the your TV screen should be level with your sightline. With the height of this TV stand at 31″, that would put TVs 32″ or larger at a proper level for viewing while lying in bed, sitting on the bed or in a chair. Be sure to take the final measurements for yourself.

Style and Matching Pieces.

The 3-Drawer TV Console will pair perfectly with your matching full bedroom set by Furniture Traditions, or with a variety of other matching pieces offered by Furniture Traditions. Available in Oak and Alder.

Furniture Traditions gets asked this all the time. “Can I use my adjustable bed with a drawer pedestal?” The answer is YES! You don’t have to give up your adjustable bed to add storage underneath your bed with a drawer pedestal bed. The Adjustable Bed Drawer Pedestal #635 by Furniture Traditions will provide 13.4 cu. ft. of usable underbed storage without giving up any of your bedroom’s floor space. That’s more storage capacity than a full size dresser.

Furniture Traditions made the first, and still the best available drawer pedestal for adjustable base beds. The Adjustable Bed Drawer Pedestal #635 has a sleek design and 4 huge full-extension drawers with custom steel ball bearing guides for smooth motion. The generous size drawers will keep your linens, pillows, sweaters and clothing organized under your bed.

Although Adjustable Bed Drawer Pedestal will work with any adjustable bed base, it was designed to work with Ergomotion, Leggett & Platt and Tempur-pedic, adjustable beds. It also works with a conventional mattress, low profile foundation, or as a stand alone platform bed without the box spring.

The 4-Drawer Pedestal for Adjustable Bed Bases will go with all headboards made by Furniture Traditions.

Besides using the Adjustable Bed Drawer Pedestal as a stand alone platform, the pedestal bed goes with any of Furniture Traditions’ various headboards. The Master-piece Headboard or the Simple Headboard are bookcase headboards with a sloped back, perfect to lean back against with a pillow for reading in bed or watching TV. Dramatically maximize the storage in your bedroom with the popular Pier Group and lower height Mid Wall. Both feature bedside pull-out trays, dual lights, USB ports, hidden compartments, and more.

As furniture manufacturers and suppliers to the furniture industry, Furniture Traditions believes, when properly done, furniture made in America is the best in the world! Made in America also means it’s easy to get parts if needed. They use quality northern red oak and red alder hardwoods from managed forests in America and not from whoever sells wood the cheapest. Furniture Traditions’ bedroom furniture is “bench made”, which means an individual craftsman works on each piece. With his signature on every piece he makes, he takes pride in making something extraordinary. The combination of quality materials and superior construction methods come together to create an heirloom piece that will last for generations and is backed with Furniture Traditions’ famous American Heirloom Warranty.

The Adjustable Bed Drawer Pedestal #635 by Furniture Traditions does not include the adjustable bed base and mattress.

Pier Bed Group is best seller

Co-owners Steve Ardis and Bob Kirkeby started Furniture Traditions with a focus on crafting heirloom quality bedroom furniture and a fierce dedication to customer satisfaction. After 25 years, Furniture Traditions continues that same philosophy, proudly making quality furniture in America.

The company established itself in Orange, California with humble beginnings in Steve Ardis’ garage, where he designed and built their first bedroom set prototype. The pier bed provides maximum storage, in less floor space than a conventional bed and 2 nightstands. Dual reading lamps and secret compartments are just a few of its outstanding features.

In 2003, the optional drawer pedestal was introduced. Replacing the need for a boxspring, this pedestal has lots of storage, where there was none before. Its giant 28″ deep drawers provide more storage than the big dresser!  To date, more than 36,000 people have our drawer pedestals in their home.

After 25 years and over 50,000 sold, the Pier Group has remained enormously successful. So successful in fact, that Steve designed the Mid Wall, a child of the Pier Group and an instant superstar.

If imitation is the sincere form of flattery, then copycats have flattered them to death. What’s hard to copy is what Furniture Traditions does best with their highly experienced, skilled craftsmen—combine quality materials and superior construction methods, to create an heirloom piece that will last for generations.
