If you’ve just moved home and your new bedroom has less storage than you’re used to, it can be difficult to find places to put all of your belongings. The last thing you want is a cluttered bedroom – whether it’s brand new or you’ve had the same one for years. Your bedroom should be a place where you feel relaxed and at ease and clutter definitely doesn’t create that vibe! Here are a few of our favourite ways to save space – no matter how small your bedroom.
1. Use the Room’s Corners
In most bedrooms, the corners of the room are just wasted space. However, where space is limited, these can be used to give you much more storage. Take a look at your belongings and see what you have no room for. Is it books, shoes, DVDs – whatever it may be, installing some corner shelves is a great way to maximise that space. Corner shelves give you the space to store whatever you like in an organised way, without spilling into the rest of the room. If space is really tight, you can even use them as bedside tables!
2. Double Up
Without the luxury of space, it can be hard to cram everything into the room without making some sacrifices. Would you prefer a bedside table or a desk? If you double up, you can have both! By making your bedside table a small and neat desk, you can place a chair underneath it and use it to work at, and to place your night-time essentials!
3. Use Your Doors
The space behind your door is essential for giving you more space. It can be used to store coats, dressing gowns, jewellery… even bags and shoes! All you need to do is attach some hooks and then all of that wasted space is the perfect place to keep the things that just have nowhere to go. If you’re lucky enough to have an Ensuite, this space is perfect for towels.
4. Shelves, Shelves, Shelves
It’s nice to be able to display our most precious things – whether that’s photos, books or jewellery, all of us have belongings that we want to be able to look at and admire. By installing floating shelves, you can use the space higher up on your walls that would usually be wasted) to display your precious belongings.
5. Hang Shoes and Bags
In cluttered and limited space, shoes and handbags can become worn and damaged. Instead of shoving them into the bottom or top of your wardrobe, hang them instead! By installing a few simple hooks into one of your walls, you can use the empty wall space to display the bags and shoes that you care about the most so that they’re less likely to get damaged and you can see what you have.
6. Use Your Headboard
You can actually buy headboards that open at the sides to reveal hidden storage. However, these are a little pricey. If you’re wanting a more budget-friendly option, use box shelves as headboards and use this space to store books, magazines, photographs – whatever you like! Not only does this provide great storage, but it also allows you to place your most beloved items in a place where they can be seen and near you as you go to sleep!
7. Buy a Clothes Rail
Finding enough room to store your clothes can be hard – especially when you have a lot and you only have room for a small wardrobe. Wardrobes can be bulky and take up a lot of space, so buying a second isn’t always practical. Luckily, clothes rails are hugely popular right now, with them being seen in home magazines and all over Instagram. They take up much less space whilst still giving you space to hang your clothes and you can even make them look super pretty by adding fairy lights or bunting around them!
8. Purchase an Ottoman
Ottomans not only look attractive and stylish, but they’re great for storage too! They take up little space (they look great at the bottom of your bed!) but can provide a lot of storage. They’re also a great place to sit, with many of them being cushioned on top – making the perfect seat for a dresser or desk too!
9. Hang Shelves and Plants
If you haven’t seen the latest trend of floating shelves and hanging plants, where have you been!? They look really interesting and unique, whilst providing storage or a display method that doesn’t use any floor space! You can hang them anywhere – so wherever you have extra space that isn’t being used, they’ll add a stylish touch whilst giving you that extra, much-needed storage.
10. Be Neat!
It can be hard to keep your bedroom tidy all of the time – even more so when space is tight. However, a neat bedroom provides much more space and to do this, you need to make sure that everything has a home. This will encourage you to keep the floor space empty, giving you much more space to enjoy in your bedroom.
