How to optimise your bedroom storage space.

February 3, 2023 |

Organising your bedroom to allow for more storage space can seem like a daunting task, but with a little know-how creativity and organisation, you can transform your cluttered room with limited storage into a serene and organised space.

Today we will be discussing the best ways of optimising your storage space in the Bedroom. So whether you have a small room with limited space or a large room that collects too much clutter, this post is for you.

Here are some of the best ways of making the most of your storage in the bedroom.

Making use of vertical space.

When we think of storage space we often ignore vertical space. But vertical space can be a game changer when you are trying to get more out of your room. To add more vertical storage to your bedroom, you can invest in tall bookshelves, wall-mounted shelves or even a shelf ladder.

Vertical space allows you to stack items so you can store more, generally, you will want to store items you don’t use as much in vertical storage as they can be a pain to access. When storing vertical items use them for extra bedding or out-of-season clothes, by doing so you won’t need to access the items as often.

Underbed storage

Modern trends such as cloud beds or low beds often make your room look bigger as they trick your eye into seeing more of the room, but they decrease the space in your bedroom as they have a lack of under-bed storage.

Your bed often takes up the majority of your room, and the space underneath it often goes unused. If you aren’t using the space under your bed for storage then you are missing out on prime storage space.

With under-bed storage, most people make the mistake of just throwing items under the bed and forgetting about them. This causes more clutter, don’t do this.

What you want to do is buy some clear containers and then put your least used items towards the back of the bed where your more commonly used items should be at the front. This makes it easier for you to access items that you need.

Declutter your room regularly

No one likes to clean and there are a million other things you would rather do than spend time cleaning on your days off but if you want an organised room you are going to need to declutter it from time to time.

You should take your time every month to look at items you don’t need, don’t use or items that have broken. From here you can either throw these items out or donate them to a local charity shop. Something you don’t need may be worth more to someone else so donate where possible.

Organise your wardrobe space.

Your wardrobe space is another crucial storage space in your home. You can optimise the storage space in your wardrobe with a few simple hacks. You can install hooks, and hangers with multiple levels and even add clear storage containers at the bottom of your wardrobe to store your footwear to keep your wardrobe organised.

Nightstand organisation

Your nightstand is often a catch-all for books, electronics, and other items that need to be within reach. To keep your nightstand clutter-free, invest in a bedside table with built-in storage or add a small basket to keep items organized.

A bedside table can be picked up fairly cheaply online on the Facebook marketplace if you are working on a budget.

Multifunctioning furniture

Multifunctioning furniture can be purchased that not only performs the function you are looking to do but also as a secondary function provides you with more storage in your bedroom. Beds, ottomans and even chairs can have internal storage within them.

If you are investing in bedroom furniture anytime soon try to get built-in storage if you are struggling with space.

Invest in a storage unit

If all of the above fails then it may be time to accept that you need help to store your possessions. If you find your bedroom or any other room in the home is overflowing with items that need to go then storage is a good option if you don’t want to throw the items away.
