Storage solutions – Making the most of a small bedroom

Storage solutions – Making the most of a small bedroom

Small bedrooms can be a bit of a nightmare, ending up looking like a bomb’s gone off – your clothes are everywhere, random shoes are missing their significant others and you can’t find your mascara because it’s hidden under a pile of, well, everything!

The key to making the most of a small bedroom is to think about your storage options. It might not sound like the most exciting of tasks but it will make your life so much easier once everything is organised, so here are some of our top storage solutions.

Make the most of your bed!

Divan Beds

You may be thinking “hang on a minute, what have beds got to do with this” but if you’ve got a small bedroom, then you want to be making the most of the space that the bed takes up, using the space underneath to its full advantage. One way of doing this easily is to buy a divan bed, which comes with inbuilt storage, usually in the form of drawers. We love this faux leather frame, with underbed drawers which you can use to store anything you like; from bedding and towels, through to all those shoes!

Make the most of awkward spaces with a storage chest

Storage Chests

Got some space at the end of your bed? Under the window? By the door? Sometimes we have some space but it’s not practical to put a traditional chest of drawers or shelves in it. And sometimes you want to keep your belongings out of sight. One thing to consider is buying a storage chest; as this can often fit in awkward spaces and keeps everything neat and tidy, but out of sight. We love this stylish faux leather Ottoman chest, which makes for a handy seat too!

Keep your shoes where you can find them

Shoe Racks

There are few things that get in the way more than shoes scattered on the floor. If you’re sick of tripping over yours then invest in a shoe rack to keep your shoes organised. This can even go in the bottom of your wardrobe so you don’t have to dig around to try and find a matching pair. Try this canvas double shelf rack, which can help keep your smelly gym trainers covered up too!

Take up less space with some handy vacuum bags

Vacuum Packs

Do you have clothes, bedding and coats that you only really need at certain times of the year? Keep them organised, fresh and taking up minimal room with the help of vacuum packs. For example; pop in your winter clothes, grab your hoover and vacuum out the air, leaving a much smaller package to store. These can easily be popped in a drawer, under the bed or in your wardrobe ready for when you need them.

Storage boxes keep things out of sight and fit wherever you need them to

Storage boxes

If you want to make the most of the space underneath your bed, on top of wardrobes or in other nooks and crannies then storage boxes not only keep things organised and out of the way, but they can help fit into the theme of your room too. We love this stylish bamboo storage box, which is perfect for fitting in all those bits and bobs that clutter your room and should easily fit in with any room decor.

    What we need are boxes for boots. There are many shoe storage ideas, but these are all too small/short to take high heeled ankle boots.

    Great ideas! My main bedroom furniture, wardrobe, underbed cupboards are full to capacity, so I need some ideas to store things more effectively! Plus I really need a de-clutter! Maybe this article will give me the impetus to get started.
