Not everyone has the luxury of a large bedroom with plenty of storage. It can be challenging to keep things organised when your bedroom does not have enough space to store your clothes and other bedroom essentials. Keep in mind that your bed alone takes up a lot of space, apart from your dresser, side table, and other furniture that you have inside your bedroom. You may even have a desk and chair inside when you want to work in private. If you can, you should try to minimise bedroom furniture to those that are necessary. That way, you have more space to move around, and your bedroom does not feel cramped and uncomfortable. You can also consider fitted bedrooms to maximise your bedroom space, and make it uniquely yours.
When it comes to storage spaces, you will find that there are many ways to add them to your bedroom to minimise clutter and keep the place neat. Here are some storage ideas you might want to try for your bedroom.
Do some sorting out
Frequently, we fill our bedroom with things that we don’t need there. Additionally, we continue to shop for more, not because they are essential but because we want them. The problem with this is you only build up more clutter in your bedroom. You hold on to clothes you don’t wear and buy even more to add to your pile. This affects storage since you just have too much going on inside your bedroom. Go through everything you own and see what you absolutely must have inside your bedroom. Items such as accessories and clothes, among others should be sorted out. Let go of non-essentials and hold on to the necessities inside the room. You’ll be surprised at how much space you have to add storage after the sorting out process.
Make use of the wall
Your bedroom wall can be the backdrop for shelves or racks. Your floor space is free, as your shelves are attached to the wall. They can be used for items that you want to display. These would be photographs, books, decor pieces, potted plants, and the list goes on. You leave your side table and dresser uncluttered and have your favourite things where you can see them.
Make use of your bedroom furniture
To keep beddings, towels, linens, and other bedroom necessities, you can look for storage boxes that fit underneath your bed. Organise the items you want to be hidden in the bins and keep them under your bed. A bench with storage is a practical choice. You should also go for a nightstand with drawers that can store smaller items. Keys, pens, journals, etc. can be kept in them within arm’s reach.
After sorting everything out, you can start reorganising your bedroom. Assign a place for every item, arranging your things in such a way that you will always find them when you need them. Fold your clothes neatly, and store your accessories. Keep your bedroom floor free of mess and make it a habit to neaten up before leaving your bedroom. With the storage you add, your bedroom will look tidy and pleasant.
