Finding the right bedroom storage design ideas might keep you up at night, but don’t panic. Whether it’s a lack of wardrobes, drawers or hanging space, there’s no shortage of clever space-creating storage solutions to help you create your perfect sleep space.
A bedroom should be a place to relax and unwind – not somewhere you have to fight through a clutter of shoes, clothes and toiletries.
We have sifted through tons of bedroom storage tips and products to bring you 10 innovate storage ideas for your small bedroom:
1. Create box storage units by the side of your bed.
Creating box storage units is an easy DIY project. Combining 4 pieces of wood together could help you solve all your storage problems. The great thing about the box storage units is that they can be installed anywhere on your walls and not just by the side of your bed.
2. Clever ways to make the most of alcoves.
By utilising glass shelves to store all of your books, ornaments and trophies is the perfect way to make use of the alcoves in your home. This particular client has also opted to go for a side table to match their glass shelves.
3. Fold down desks and more box storage units.
Here’s a paradox: You need a desk but don’t have room for a desk.
The solution? A fold-down desk like the one shown above practically disappears when you fold it back up against the wall. The box storage units which can also be installed anywhere on your walls, are a great space saver.
Along with the fold down desk, you can also utilise a ‘space saving’ stool – see below.
4. A unique plywood stool that can carry your books and papers.
Whilst working at your fold down desk, you will obviously need to sit somewhere. Why not use this cleverly designed plywood stool which will guarantee you to save space rather than having to use a large desk chair.
The stool also has built-in compartments so that you can store all your necessary book and papers, which you can access on the go.
5. This fold out bed is basically like having an invisible wardrobe.
This under-bed storage idea is a major space saving solution. If you’ve run out of space in your bedroom to install cupboards or wardrobe, yet you still have piles of clothes, sheets and duvets to put away, opt for this fold out bed to help save space.
Just make sure that no one is sleeping when you’re about to fold out the bed.
6. Use the full height of your bedroom walls with these different sized storage units.
The great thing about these storage units is that you can make them in any size to fit on your bedrooms walls. This particular client has decided to fill one entire wall with the storage boxes to store all of his items, whilst working very hard at his desk.
7. Buy a sideboard – and then a second one.
Sideboards and small bedrooms go hand in hand. They hardly take up any room, yet still manage to store all of your personal items. By having the sideboards attached to the headboard, means easy access to your belongings and also means not having to install a side table which can take up a lot of room.
8. Visually light glass bed side units.
Bedside tables are unsung heroes of the night, keeping your books, alarm clock and glass of water within reach. Glassdomain offers a range of stunning glass side tables to suit any bedroom. They come in different shapes and finishes to match our beds and other bedroom furniture. See the range here.
9. Install floating shelves along side your bed.
Floating shelves are an awesome bedroom storage solution. They free up floor space and allow more natural light to flow through your home, which visually expands your space.
10. Wood and glass cabinets with enough storage to control clutter.
These multi-functional cabinets are perfect for storing your daily necessities. With all bed side tables, their primary function is for day to day use, storing glasses, books etc. However when storage space is tight, having additional drawers, can be extremely useful. In this particular bespoke unit, the customer asked for black glass to match in with the rest of their room.
