Smart Space Saving in the Bedroom

by Hannah

So, you have a tiny bedroom. Maybe it can just about fit your bed into it, with enough space left over to walk around it. Perhaps it’s not too small, but you’ve definitely seen bigger. When you’re dealing with a small bedroom, it’s not often that you can actually make the room bigger. Unless you have the option of knocking a wall through or extending, you will have to work with what you’ve got. If you’re looking for ways to save space so that you have more to use, and more space to move, here are some of the ways you might be able to do it.

Make Use of Floating Shelves

A bookcase and a bedside table are both useful storage features to have in your bedroom. However, they take up floor space, making your room look even smaller. If you want to avoid this, using the space you have on the walls is better. You can install shelving that is off the floor, leaving more space underneath the shelves. You might use this extra floor space for something else, but you could equally leave it free so that it helps your bedroom to look a little larger and airier.

Get a Storage Bed

Furniture that doubles up as storage is a fantastic idea if you’re trying to save space in your bedroom. If you’re looking for a divan bed, an ottoman storage bed is ideal for helping you store some of your stuff away. You can simply lift up the top of the bed and use the storage space inside. There are other pieces of furniture that can double up as storage or have multifunctional uses. You can have a small desk that doubles up as a bedside table, for example. This helps you to get more from your bedroom without having to take up a lot of space.

Organise Your Stuff

Getting organised in your bedroom will help you use less space. You will be able to have a smaller wardrobe or chest of drawers if you are able to keep your clothes and accessories neatly organised and compact. There are lots of storage products that you can buy that are designed just for helping you to organise specific items, such as socks, T-shirts, or bags. Some storage items will hang in handy places, such as over the end of your bed or the top of your door.

Use Space Behind Doors

The space behind your bedroom door can be useful. Instead of leaving it empty, you can use it for anything from a hanging rail to hooks for hanging up your things. It can also be a good place for a mirror or a dressing area. Your wardrobe doors can also come in handy for hanging things up or displaying a mirror, helping you use the space both inside and outside of the wardrobe. It’s a great use of vertical space.

Don’t worry if you have a small bedroom as there are ways to make use of the space smartly and even help it look bigger.
