Sometimes we wish our bedrooms could be bigger. We’ve all been there and we all have to make the most of the, sometimes limited, space that we have. Beds tend to take up the most space, but unfortunately, are the most important thing in our bedroom alongside storage space. Can you combine the two? The simple answer is, yes! So here’s some tips to freeing up space in your bedroom.
Introducing the storage bed
Storage boxes and bulky cupboards are not the way forward, and they don’t look good. Bed suppliers like Bed Guru have an amazing selection of storage beds that are an incredibly convenient storage and space solution. Not only do they take up as much space as a normal bed, but also have a great space for storage under your mattress.
These beds often feature a lifting divan frame (as seen below). Essentially, they lift from the base and the space can be used for storage of anything from mattresses to clothes. The great thing is, they only take up as much space as a normal bed and can be pushed up against the wall ensuring no space is compromised.
Is a double bed really necessary?
We all naturally want more space to stretch out in when we sleep but is it really that necessary? If you’re sleeping by yourself, it probably isn’t. Double beds take up an awful lot of space and can block doors and make accessing the space in your bedroom awkward.
You need to be realistic about your space and utilise it to the maximum. With that in mind, why not try a small double bed? They don’t take up as much space as a double bed, but still, give you a little extra wiggle room. If you push them against the wall, you’ll still feel like you have loads of space.
Think about guests
When it comes to guest bedroom, it’s often a forgotten area until guests actually come to stay. It’s likely you’ll regularly have guests round so think about the space that they’ll need when they’re in your home.
Single beds are always an option but obviously, if you have more than one guest it’s not going to be a very comfortable experience. Double beds or small doubles are probably your way forward. As guests aren’t a permanent fixture, they don’t need as much space, so maybe stretch to a double bed.
Keeping a single bed pressed up against the wall will ensure they have plenty of room to get ready and move around. If it’s a double bed then it may be a good idea to keep it in the middle so both parties can exit the bed with ease.
These are just some simple tips and tricks you can put in place in your home to fully maximise the space that you have. Just a couple of small changes can make a massive difference to your bedroom, and finally, give you the spacious bedroom of your dreams.
