Nobody likes a bedroom that’s full of furniture but the fact still remains that storage is needed for all the things that belong there. The best thing you can do is find ways to add storage space in the bedroom without wasting floor space. There are plenty of ways in which that can be done. For example:
Instead of a large dresser or wall unit that goes all the way up to the ceiling, try something less imposing like a low piece placed along the wall. You’ll have a lot of storage inside. And then there’s also the bed. You can add storage under the bed in the form of drawers.
In fact, you can make the space under the bed one big storage area. You won’t even need any cupboards or dressers if you take maximum advantage of this space.
In the kids’ room, you can have stools or ottomans that double as storage containers for toys, clothes and other things. And don’t forget to organize everything beautifully.
Another fun idea is to have a play area and some storage hidden under the bed. These features won’t occupy additional floor space, will stay hidden when not used and will teach the kids how to be organized and functional.
If your bed didn’t come with built-in storage underneath, you can add this feature yourself. You can either make or buy some rolling carts to use for storage. Hide them under the bed and label them.
Other options also include using wire baskets under the bed or inside the bed frame. They’ll give the bedroom a rustic-industrial look and they’re really practical and spacious.
Build around your bed and headboard and create a large wall unit. You can have pull-out nightstand shelves built into the unit as well as lots of open shelves, a bookcase, storage for clothes and all sorts of other features.
The space under your bed can be divided into multiple small drawers which you can pull out on three of the four sides. You can store linens and pillows on one side, clothes on the other and something else in the remaining space .
