We all deserve a good night’s rest and it’s surprising how much impact the state of your bedroom can have on your peace of mind. With lack of space being the biggest cause for clutter in the bedroom, here are some handy storage ideas that you can utilise.
Bedroom Storage Ideas
You can design your bedroom in such a way that it will serve as a haven for rest and relaxation as well as a place to store a lot of items. To make use of the available space you have, installing layered shelves is a great way to go. You can install one or more layers of shelves that will span across the perimeter of your bedroom. You can use these to store your books, handbags, shoes, clothes and other knick knacks.
If you need additional storage space for unused clothes, blankets or off-season clothes, you can use a vacuum pack so they won’t take too much space on your shelves or custom cabinets.
If you don’t have much wardrobe space, that’s not a problem. Why not use your bed frame as extra storage space? This is perfect for storing blankets, bedsheets, pillowcases, jumpers and cardigans. Other designs also allow your bed to be lifted up, exposing the savvy storage platform that is hiding underneath.
If you prefer the luxury of bespoke storage solutions, it is definitely worth looking at hiring someone to build a sliding wardrobe/storage unit for you. They work well to organise and conceal your clothes or other items, as well as make a design statement in your sleeping space.
Kids Bedroom Ideas
Instead of giving your kids a regular bed, why don’t you build it off the ground? This gives you additional space underneath for a sliding wardrobe door, reading nook or desk. Not only does a loft bed look cool, but it also gives you plenty of options to utilise the extra space it has given you.
Kids have a lot of stuff and if left unattended, it will all end up in clutter. To keep this from happening, teach them the value of being tidy and organised by using pegboards where you can attach bins and baskets as storage for their art supplies, toys, and other things.
If your kids’ room has extra wall space, maximise this by adding shelves that can work as a display area or storage space.
Shoe Storage Ideas
There are a lot of clever ways to store your shoes. For instance, you can use the wardrobe doors to hang your shoes if you only own a few pieces. This can help you empty out some shelves and use the empty spots to store larger clothes such as sweaters and jeans. If you have a big shoe collection, you can choose a few frequently used pairs and hang them on a towel bar on your wardrobe door.
You can also build a bed hutch where you can display your shoes. You can also use it to store other items such as blankets and books or display a centrepiece.
If you’ve got a spare ladder that is seldom used, you can use it to store your shoes vertically. This will help you see your entire collection at once and grab the pair that you want a lot quicker.
Walk In Wardrobe Ideas
If you are lucky enough to have a dressing room or walk-in wardrobe, adding shelves of various sizes can maximise the space and make it look like a luxurious walk-in wardrobe. Aside from adding function, shelving can hold pieces of clothing in a neat pile. To conceal some of your items, you can add box inserts to any of your shelves. For smaller shelves, you can use them to showcase your jewellery or other fashion accessories. If you tall shelves, you can add closet rods where you can hang some of your frequently used pieces of clothing. As a finishing touch, you can add a full-length mirror to make your walk in wardrobe a wonder to behold!
If you want things to look perfect, you can add small baskets and bins to your walk in wardrobe. You can use it to store small pieces of clothing or accessories and other stuff and keep them organised by category. They are a great way to utilise your hard-to-reach shelves because whenever you need something, all you need to do is just grab the whole basket instead of scrambling around to find a particular item you need. For instance, you can use bins to store all your belts, hats, sunglasses, gloves, tights and other accessories. When all of your items are in place, you are more likely to return them in their designated storage space to keep your entire walk in wardrobe spic and span.
Aside from using baskets and bins to store accessories and small clothing, you can also use them to store items that are off-season. They come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes that can fit any clothing. If you prefer to see what’s inside, you can choose the see-through plastic bins so you can easily find what you want. If you want to add a touch of colour to your storage space, you can choose coloured ones with or without labels. To maximise your limited storage space, move your off-season clothes to these storage containers. This is a great way to make space for pieces that you frequently wear and keep your off-season clothes protected and organised.
Clever Storage Ideas
If you want something that will suit your specific needs, adding bespoke sliding wardrobe doors to your living space is the best way to go. Custom storage can be designed in such a way that will complement your existing interior design or limited space. Different designs, finishes and colours are also available for you to choose from.
If you currently have shelves, you can add shelf dividers to organise your limited shelf space better. Aside from making your shelves look neat, they can help you stack clothes a lot easier. As soon as you finish a pile of folded clothes, the dividers will keep in place and prevent them from toppling over. They also come in a wide variety of sizes and finishes so, there is surely something that will fit your shelves perfectly!
