9 Small Bedroom Ideas For Maximizing Space

By Helena Young 2 December 2022

When it comes to a functioning bedroom, the number one priority is probably storage space; unless of course you prefer form of function. But what if you could have a great looking bedroom without sacrificing storage space? Well, we’ve put together this handy list of how you can make the most of every inch of your bedroom, so that you can have form and function working in perfect harmony.‌‌‌‌

1. Sliding Wardrobe Doors

This is an easy one. Having sliding doors instead of doors that swing open on your wardrobe means that you won't have to worry about door clearance. It also helps your room feel more open and less claustrophobic. ‌‌‌‌Of course, this all depends on the type of wardrobe that you have. If sliding doors aren’t an option, you could avoid big swinging wardrobe doors by replacing them with thin and stylish curtains.‌‌‌‌

2. Floating Shelves

Get Laid Beds: Floating Shelves

Don’t be alarmed, we’re not suggesting some sort of futuristic hovering shelves here. Our unique floating shelves are designed to easily hook onto the side of any of our beds, giving you the benefits of a bedside table without the bulk of a separate unit.

What’s more, they are easy to move and reposition as you need them. ‌‌‌‌These are perfect for small bedrooms since you can still reap the benefits of a bedside table without it blocking underbed storage drawers or taking up the potential space beneath. It’s a win win.‌‌‌‌

3. Spring Clean

Now this is one you may not want to hear, especially if you’re a bit of a hoarder. But throwing out the old clothes that you no longer wear, old spare bedding that you never use, or that strange shaped pillow that you tried once all helps make more space for the things that matter. ‌‌‌

If you want to save even more space, then try packing away your out-of-season clothes. Hiding away your summer shorts and shirts will open up much more space in your wardrobe, freeing up every valuable inch of storage space for your winter warmers.‌‌‌‌

4. Dresser In The Closet

Now that you’ve got that extra space in your wardrobe, you might have the space to squeeze in a chest of drawers. This is perfect for small rooms (if you can manage it) since it makes use of the vertical space of your wardrobe, making every inch count.‌‌‌‌

5. Door Hangers & Hooks

For added storage, try adding hooks and door hangers to the back of your bedroom and wardrobe doors. This can help make space for dressing gowns or even an over-the-door hanging shoe rack. ‌‌‌‌Adding hooks to hang up laundry baskets and other forms of storage is a great way of reducing the amount of floor space taken up by bulky bedroom units.‌‌‌‌

6. Radiator Shelves

Covers and shelving units that fit over your radiator are the perfect solution for that extra bit of shelving space. For some small rooms, it could even replace a bedside table. Of course, you’ll need to ensure that it’s safe, and make sure you don’t leave a chocolate midnight snack sitting on it; trust us, it’s not worth the disappointment.‌‌‌‌

7. Corner Shelves

While shelving units are generally great storage solutions, corner shelves are also a good idea since the corners of your room can often go unused. They're good for keeping small photo frames and ornaments on too, so that you can keep your small bedroom looking nice without using up valuable storage space. ‌‌‌‌As an added bedroom style tip, try hanging or placing mirrors strategically in your room; it’s a great cheat to make a small bedroom look much bigger!‌‌‌‌

8. Drawer Organizers

In small bedrooms where storage space is limited, drawers can quickly get out of control. Try using fitted drawer organizers to segment each of your drawers and keep you organised. Not only does this help you save space, but seeing how organised you are every time you open a drawer is the best feeling.

‌‌‌‌Give it a try, you won’t be able to go back!‌‌‌‌

9. Make The Most Of Your Bed

The Platform Storage Bed

Your bed probably takes up the most space in your bedroom, but that doesn’t mean that it all has to go to waste. With some good sized underbed storage boxes, you can make the most of all that space beneath your bed without making your room look cluttered or messy. Most of our bed frames come in space saver options with some all important extra space for more storage.‌‌‌‌
