If you’ve got a full house, it’s especially important that you utilise every single inch of your home. By buying bulky furniture to store your children’s toys or your abundance of clothes, you’ll only limit the space you have, making each room seem smaller and more cluttered.
Here I’ll share my ideas on how you can effectively introduce bedroom storage into your home, without compromising on space. Take a look at my pick of seriously smart bedroom storage.
Hanging a Corkboard
If you’re a bit of a magpie like me, your jewellery collection is never complete. I’m always picking up new pieces and thanks to my new corkboard, gone are the days of overflowing trinket boxes.
Rather than having numerous jewellery boxes dotted around your bedroom, or pieces strewn across your dressing table, why not hang a corkboard? This way, you can free up surface space and you won’t have to spend time hunting around for a certain necklace or those favourite earrings of yours; they’ll be there right in front of you!
Choose Beds with Built-in Storage
Granted, you already have a bed. However, if you were thinking of splashing out on additional storage anyway, then you may as well kill two birds with one stone and buy a brand new bed with storage already built-in.
If you’re looking for additional storage for your child’s bedroom, I feel your struggle. As a mother of three boys, my house is full of toy cars and superhero action figures, which is why I decided to purchase a cabin bed. It is, without a doubt, one of the best decisions I ever made. Not only do these beds utilise space, they look fun too. My children love them and, with built-in shelves and drawers, there’s plenty of storage for all their belongings.
For older sleepers, I find that Divan Beds are an elegant alternative that also offer plenty of storage space. With most divan beds, you can opt for either two or four drawers, depending on how much storage space you need.
Build a Window Seat with Storage
Window seats look just great, don’t they? Imagine curling up with a good book on a window seat, or watching the world go by from the comfort your own bedroom: complete bliss. Well, go one step further and build a window seat with a cupboard underneath.
Not only will you create a cosy spot in your boudoir, you’ll provide a compact cupboard to store away extra towels, bedlinen, shoes – whatever you like!
Make the most of the unused window ledge in your bedroom and build a snuggly seat with storage.
Hopefully these tips have inspired you to make the most of the limited space in your bedrooms. However, even if your bedrooms aren’t small, these ideas will look just great and will allow you to make extra space in your home.
