1. Get a storage bed
If your bedroom is small, every inch matters. By getting a storage bed, you’re doubling the use of your bed. You can store clothes, books, or other items below. Many storage beds have drawers on all sides, which makes it efficient and accessible.
2. Utilize the back of your door
Utilizing an over-the-door storage rack is a great way to keep your items in one place without adding more cabinets. It’s a versatile organizer that can be used for small items, hats, or daily essentials.
3. Install floating shelves
Floating shelves are ideal for small spaces because they’ll look cleaner, light, and they’re easy to install. Less space is required when you compare it to traditional shelves.
Not only do floating shelves look good, but they’re also durable and functional, as long as you buy with quality in mind.
4. Get a pull-out pants rack
Pants can take up a lot of space in your closet. That’s why installing a pull-out pants rack will maximize and declutter the space that you have. The rack easily slides out and makes your pants accessible.
5. Store seasonal clothes under your bed
One of the best ways to save space in your closet is to remove out-of-season clothes. Instead of donating your clothes or throwing it away, place the items that aren’t in-season in an under-bed storage box or drawer.
6. Mount your lights
Get rid of your standing lamp, and mount your lights to the wall. Lights that are mounted to the wall look appealing, are practical, and easy to install. It ensures that your floors remain clean and clutter-free.
7. Install floor-to-ceiling shelves
Make the most of your space vertically by installing floor-to-ceiling shelves. You can store books, collectibles, and decor. Utilizing your vertical space will ensure that you’re entire room doesn’t feel like it’s full of stuff.
8. Use your dresser as a bedside table
In a small bedroom, finding ways to give an item multiple uses is key. By using your dresser for clothes and as a bedside table, you’ll eliminate the need for extra furniture.
9. Organize your make-up vertically
If your makeup is scattered, it’s time to get an acrylic makeup organizer. It’ll allow you to keep all of your items together, and it makes it easier to find. It’s also a great way to eliminate a large table with drawers since the organizer stacks vertically.
10. Utilize bedside tables as storage
Bedside tables look great, and if it’s important to you, find one with drawers. They’re handy for storage and can enhance the look of your room when it matches your bedframe.
11. Make your nook comfortable
The corner of your room may go unused. If you have large windows and an available corner, get a corner bench or chair.
Not only will you have a comfortable place to relax aside from your bed, but you’ll also have another place to store your items if you get one with storage.
