Bedroom Storage

If you want your bedroom to be a haven for relaxation, you need to make sure you can keep it in a neat and tidy condition.

Getting the right bedroom storage for your slumber chamber is vital, as you want it to stay uncluttered and to be able to find your seasonal items without having to rearrange your entire home.

A bit of thought and some planning into bedroom storage can save you lots of time and effort on a day to day basis. Here are some top tips on how to keep things under control so you can enjoy your private space:

Stash Things Under The Bed
If you have a king size bed, it's already taking up 42 square feet of space, so make the most of it. You can get roll out drawers or bins that you can use to store items that you don't use often. If you have a seasonal wardrobe, it's a great place to store items that are out of season, without having to lug them all the way up to the attic. If you have luggage, extra bags or sporting gear and nowhere to keep it, stick it under the bed. Plus there's the added benefit of not having to vacuum so often underneath it.

Limit Your Accessories
The most obvious rule of space efficient bedroom storage is to limit the unnecessary stuff you hoard in there. If you must have books, think about putting shelving above your headboard or mount shelving higher up on the wall so you don't restrict your space too much.

Work On Your Closet
Try and get the most out of the space your wardrobe or cupboard offers. If you are shopping for a new one, or having one constructed, try and maximize the storage space at your disposal by including two hanging rows in the wardrobe. Drawers and shelves are easier to add later on, so always start out with enough hanging space for your longer items.

Use drawers to store items that don't fold symmetrically, like underwear and socks. Shoe cubes, tie racks (that are also handy to store belts on) and laundry bins can help you to restore order. Putting a full length mirror inside your closet is another way to use space efficiently.

If you have a deep closet, think about using the corners behind the hanging rods for storage. This is a great bedroom storage tip for items that are not used often, or for sporting gear or bags.
