Some people understand how valuable space is – especially if you’ve been sleeping in the same cramped bedroom for years with stuff strewn all over! Sure, let’s put a mirror or two and make space seem bigger (according to Google). But even if you put a gazillion mirrors in your small bedroom, organizing your stuff will still need ingenuity and smart space-saving organization ideas to make the most of a small space.
Enough with the dilly-dally and read these top 10 bedroom organization tips to make your small bedroom as neat as a pin.
1. Be Thankful for the Space Under the Bed
If you think the bed is only for slumber – think again. There’s an open and useful space under it that you can use for just about anything (now you know, monsters aren’t the only thing under the bed). Just purchase some shelves which you can easily slide from and under the bed and you’ve got yourself an under-the-bed storage. Never thought of murphy bed?
2. Bedside Table, Anyone?
Most people with a small bedroom would usually say no to this offer but maybe you haven’t heard of a shelf bracket. Grab a couple of them and put a piece of cute wood over it and it can be your bedside table. You can easily place your book, cell phone, or a glass of water before hitting the sack.
3. What’s Behind the Door? Hanging Storage!
If you come to think of it, your door is actually an extremely useful blank space you can use for hanging some of your stuff like handbags, accessories, jackets, belts, or anything that has a hook-like component – even your pants!
4. Rolling Your Shirts is Still Trendy
You’ve probably heard of this tip on how to pack like a pro when traveling before. But guess what? Rolling your shirts or blouses saves more space in your tiny drawer. Another upper hand you get from rolling instead of folding is that it’s easy to pick out the shirts you want to wear!
5. Vertical Storage Draws the Eye Up
A small bedroom with shelves and furniture arranged closely together can be an eyesore. Too much stuff on the floor on one small floor space. One way to draw the eye up is to create a vertical storage. Not only does this save a lot of space but it’ll also make space seem bigger.
6. Overhead Bookshelf for the Bookworms
If you’re the avid reader and always hoard a book or two every day, storing those paperbacks can be quite challenging. We all know throwing them away isn’t the option, after all, they’re a bookworm’s priceless possession. On top of that, we all know that conventional bookshelves just take up too much space.
Why not build an overhead bookshelf instead? Just make sure it’s screwed at an appropriate height so that when you’re sitting upright reading, your head is sitting a few inches below it.
And while you’re at it, if you’ve got no space for a bedside lamp, try installing a light below the overhead bookshelf! It’s like hitting two birds with one stone!
7. Hang Your Precious Moments
Photos are essentials in home design. It personalizes a space. Without photos, your small bedroom could feel like a lifeless hostel or worse – a motel! If you have no space for a table to display your photos, hang them instead.
8. Bowls to Organize Your Jewelry
This is one pet peeve of mine. The last thing I want coming from a long day at work is to open up my drawer only to find all my accessories and jewelry haphazardly strewn inside. My solution? I bought some pieces of uber cute bowls and segregated my rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and all the other trinkets in my drawer.
9. Ever Thought of Corner Shelves?
Corners are useless spaces when not optimized. One amazing way to utilize corners in your small bedroom is to screw some corner shelves on top of each other.
10. Don’t Ignore Multi-Purpose Furniture
I don’t know about you but there’s something about storage ottomans that excite the heck out of me. Not only are they very elegant and minimalist but they also go with just about any home design. But the best part is – they make for a great storage and stool!
Having a small bedroom doesn’t have to be a problem – if you’ve got some tricks up your sleeves. Try these simple tweaks in your small space and never have to worry about losing stuff in a clutter ever again!
