While you may think of your bedroom as just a space for catching 40 winks, it’s also where many of us house everything from our clothes to our shoes to our beauty products. This is why you may now be considering how to maximise the space and create even more storage. We have some tips to consider:
- Look into a bed with storage
Your bed isn’t just for sleeping. Some come with built-in drawers or lift to reveal storage space underneath that can be used to store away pyjamas, bedding, towels and even bulkier items such as dressing gowns. Shop with a specialist, such as Divan Beds Centre, that designs beds for this very purpose. Ottoman beds are a popular choice with hydraulic struts that make it easy to lift up the mattress to access the storage space underneath.
- Use a pegboard for jewellery
Pegboards are a great choice for storage as the pegs can be manipulated and moved around to accommodate jewellery of all shapes and sizes. Plus, hanging this on the wall means your jewellery is not only stored out of the way but makes an attractive decorative feature too. Take a look at this DIY tutorial for more inspiration on how to decorate your pegboard to match your space.
- Hang shoes on coat hooks on your bedroom door
Take coat pegs or hooks, screw these to your bedroom door and hang your shoes from them. These are the shoes you don’t wear every day – we’re thinking your fancy heels or boots. They’re stored, out of the way, making room in your wardrobe for more clothes or saving space with no need for a shoe rack in the room.
- Invest in multi-clothes hangers
These ingenious designs allow you to hang multiple items of clothing on one hanger, saving space in the wardrobe and allowing you to store everything neatly away. Or, it means you can fit in storage boxes or extra sets of closet drawers in the main wardrobe area, creating even more storage later! You can pick up these hangers from the likes of Amazon and while they may seem a little pricey, they’re well worth the investment.
- Wall mount your dressing table
Instead of buying a bulky dressing table, choose one that can be wall-mounted. This frees up floor space that can be used to house an additional set of drawers or storage boxes.
- Look for headboards that offer storage
Headboards that feature inbuilt shelves are a great way of adding additional storage space to your bedroom. These clever designs mean you don’t need side tables, creating a neat solution that likely offers more room than your traditional single bedside drawer. IKEA offers a headboard that does just this, with three shelves on each side, a long shelf along the top of the headboard and even holes that lamp wires can be fed through.
Take on these tips to create even more storage in your bedroom and enjoy a clutter-free space that allows you to keep everything you need close to hand.
