If you are reading this, we assume that you are looking to make the most of your small bedroom. Well, it just so happens that we’re in the business of problem-solving and have some great small bedroom ideas and solutions to help you best use your limited space.

 

Shelves At Every Opportunity

Do you want more space to move around? This small bedroom idea involves lifting everything off the floor, the best way to do this, floating shelves! The more clever spaces you can find to install shelves, the better. Any space (large or small) that isn’t high traffic is perfect for floating shelves; like over the bed, above your desk (if you have one) or even tucked away in corners.

Your Doors

Any door in your room can be quite useful in helping you save space, especially the door to your room and your cupboard doors. The space above your door is a great spot for a little floating shelf to sneak in some extra storage for books and other small items. Your door itself is also the perfect spot for adding hooks, caddies and rails to store things like jewellery and shoes.

Under Bed Storage

Your bed takes up a lot of floor space in your room. Often when you have anything larger than a single bed, it starts to make it hard to move around the room, especially when you add cupboards, bedside tables and a desk into the mix. Possibly the best small bedroom idea we recommend is using under bed storage to try reduce the amount of furniture you have. For example, under bed storage can eliminate the need for extra cupboards and possibly free up a substantial section of your room.

Rethink Your Bedside Table

If you have the space, bedside tables are important for convenience and we highly recommend squeezing one in. However, when it comes to small bedroom ideas it is useful to think outside the box. A common little hack is positioning your desk (if you have one) next to your bed so that it can double as a bedside pedestal! Genius right? If you do not have enough space for a bedside pedestal or a desk you can shop around for a good pocket organiser. Pocket organisers are fabric pouches designed to slip under your mattress and hang down the side of your bed to store phones, laptops, magazines, remotes and other items that would normally go on or into a nightstand. Lastly, you can get a custom unit that is built perfectly to your dimensions and designed to make the most of your space.

Bespoke Wardrobes

Only have a little bit of space? Make sure you make the most of it! Custom units are the best way to ensure that your furniture fits into your room perfectly. Another benefit of bespoke furniture, like wardrobes, is the ability to add extra functionality into the mix. We highly recommend investing in multifunctional furniture. Why choose between a chest of drawers, wardrobe and desk when you can merge them all into one to save a bunch of space!?
