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.
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.
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.read more
