1. Use a Bedroom Bench to Store Seasonal Clothing
So, you have a bedroom bench that sits there collecting dust. Or maybe you don't have one at all. Turn the space at the end of your bed into storage by placing a storage bench there. Bedroom benches can add some style and a pop of color while adding storage space for seasonal clothing, blankets, extra linens, and pillows.
2. Add Additional Storage to Closets with Hanging Organizers
If your bedroom closets are lacking the space you need, hanging organizers are a simple solution. Closets with hanging rods waste a bunch of space that can be used more efficiently. Adding hanging organizers can provide some shelving or bin storage without taking up too much space. Hanging bedroom closet organizers are great for storing clothing that doesn't require folding. Some organizers have small pockets that are perfect for storing accessories like hair bows, socks, or bowties.
3. Make Use of Under the Bed Storage
If you have empty space underneath your bed (or crib) make use of it with some simple and cost-effective solutions. There are a few types of bedroom organization products suitable for maximizing under bed storage areas:
4. Stack Jewelry Box Components to Save Space
Gone are the days of jewelry display cases. Space-saving stackable jewelry boxes are a great way to store jewelry in small bedroom spaces. Stackable jewelry boxes come with different compartments with the option of storing necklaces, bracelets, rings, and other accessories separately. This solution is an excellent choice for keeping earrings organized so they don't get separated.
5. Use Wall Space with Bedroom Shelving
Create bedroom shelves to store books, magazines or decor items for a unique bedroom storage solution. If you don't want to drill holes in the wall and create permanent shelving consider using floating bedroom shelves instead. These units are attached with adhesive strips allowing them to easily be moved around the bedroom as needed. Here are a few of our favorite options:
- Floating Shelves
- Corner Shelves
- Industrial Shelves
- Geometric Shelves
- Create a Bedroom Desk Shelf Unit
6. Organize Dresser Drawers to Maximize Storage
If you experience a lot of clothing overflow in your bedroom it can be frustrating to not have enough drawer space. You may be surprised how much more room you have in your drawers when they are properly organized. Drawer organizers and dividers are essential for controlling clutter in drawers and creating a more efficient space.
7. Declutter Your Nightstand
Your nightstand is likely the most used piece of furniture in your room and the most likely to gather clutter. Keep the surface tidy and use drawer organizers for the drawers to ensure that everything has a designated space. Use a tray for your bedroom essentials (watch, glasses, hair brush) to keep them from getting lost in the drawers.
Having an open nightstand can provide more space on top and allow you to be less picky about what goes there so that it is easy to clean up at the end of each day. Sometimes having closed drawers encourages us to keep shoving stuff in the drawers and leads to clutter.
8. Place a Beautiful Hamper in a Convenient Place
When your dirty clothes hamper is placed in a convenient place, it is more likely that you will use it. Many hampers look like beautiful pieces of furniture and match the aesthetic of your bedroom space.
9. Use Tiered Hangers
Tiered hangers are space savers because they allow you to hang multiple items in a small area. If your closet hanging space is limited, tiered hangers will give you additional hanging space without having to reconfigure your closet.
10. Take Advantage of Closet Floor Space
If you have a closet with hanging rods, the space underneath them is usable floor space. Hang all of your longer garments together so that the shorter garments allow for floor storage. We love stacking drop front shoe boxes on closet floors, but you can also add a piece of furniture, like a small dresser, or decorative bins.
11. Use Clear Storage Bins
To maximize your closet shelving, use clear bins to store seasonal clothing, handbags, accessories, or anything that is cluttering up your closet space. Using clear bins allows you to stack a bit higher and also see the content of the bin for easy access.
The bedroom is one of the most important rooms in your home. It’s where you rest and recharge, so it should be a space that makes you feel comfortable and relaxed at the end of each day. Put a few of these tips to work and transform your bedroom space today.
