Don’t cramp your style simply because your precious bedroom is on the tiny side! Get creative and think out of the box when it comes to innovative bedroom storage solutions for your smaller bedroom. There are many stylish options available. Here’s our round-up of Marcia’s favourite bedroom storage ideas to suit you.
Your bedroom should be a sanctuary where you are able to rest and unwind away from the distractions of the outside world. Don’t spoil this tranquil ambience with clutter. Invest in quality storage options that serve a functional role in your room, as well as adding to the visual appeal of the space. No idea where to start? Here are a few great options!
1. Baskets for all your needs
Baskets are great for bedroom storage. They come in different finishes and sizes and can be used to store just about anything from out-of-season clothing to bedding, towels and even toiletries. Keep clutter at bay with beautifully woven baskets. Have them on display above wardrobes, on dressers or tucked neatly under your bed. Choose woven rattan in natural wood, or opt for rustic coloured baskets that fit into the overall design scheme of your bedroom.
2. Hidden nooks and shelving
If you have wall space in your bedroom, perhaps it is time to think ‘upwards’ and invest in wall shelving to help free up much-needed floor space. Floating shelves above the bed or dresser are ideal areas to store your books and other essentials. Also, make the most of any tiny nooks and spaces in your room and convert it into practical storage solutions to work for you.
3. The bedside table
Don’t underestimate the power of the humble bedside table. In fact, it does not need to be a table at all, as long as it offers practical storage space in arm’s reach of your bed. Get creative and choose something novel with ample storage space, such as a rustic filing cabinet, a stack of old suitcases or a minimalist table with drawers. This is the perfect spot to store the essentials you may need during the night. Anything from toiletries, books, a night light, spectacles or even medication can be discretely stored here.
4. Go Minimal
Declutter your bedroom completely and opt for a minimalist look. Use a crate as a simple bedside table and mount hooks to the wall to hang the basics – such as your clothing and accessories for the next day. Keep everything else out of sight for a clean, calm and crisp look.
5. Built-in cabinetry
Invest in quality customised furniture to suit your needs and bring bespoke storage to the bedroom. Beds with under-bed storage drawers are perfect for packing away linen and other goodies. A customised wooden wall unit next to the bed will also create the ideal little spot to showcase some of your prized belongings.
