Headboard Storage – A Simple And Smart Space-Saving Idea

When it comes to storage, I always think that it’s better to come up with some clever idea and hide the items in spaces which normally remain empty than to have a lot of furniture in the room. In the bedroom, for example, the décor should be as simple as possible. It’s not a room where storage should play an obvious role yet storage is not something you can ignore. So be clever and use the headboard for that.

Shelves are very practical in the bed proximity as there’s always something that needs to be stored

Headboard storage is an excellent idea. Most beds also have headboards and, if your doesn’t, then the idea of also using it as a storage space should be enough to convince you to get one. But what exactly does headboard storage mean… Well, it means you can store things either inside the headboard or on it or that you can reconfigure the headboard so that it also includes some storage space.

There shelves or compartments can be inside the headboard just above the bed or they can be on the side of the headboard.
