Some of us don’t have the luxury of having a big bedroom and so we’re forced to work with what we have and that doesn’t always have to be challenging
Not if you have a plan.
Now when it comes to storage for a bedroom, most people automatically think of a closet and that makes sense. I mean that’s what closets are for right?
Yes, you’re right, but when you’re trying to come up with extra storage in your bedroom, you’re going to have to get creative and think beyond your closet.
Plus I’m guessing your closet is already stuffed to the max (or close to it), which is why you’re reading this in the first place.
Am I right? I thought so.
Now if you’re thinking of ways to also maximize the storage in your closet, then read this here for some tips.
Remember what I said about getting creative? I’m about to hook you up with some bedroom storage ideas to get you started on making room in your bedroom with these bedroom storage ideas.
Let’s get started…
Bedroom Storage Ideas: Look Up
The area above your door is the perfect place to store extra towels, blankets or pretty much anything that you want or I should say that you don’t need immediate access to. Think about it, it will be a pain in the ass to grab a ladder or stool every time you need to access your stuff.
Just install a shelf and add some nice baskets (or go bare) and you’ve just created some instant storage.
Bedroom Storage Ideas: Look Under
This is a common one. You know the big empty space under your bed?
It’s one that most ignored spots or maybe just most forgotten about spots. Whatever the case, you have so much space under your bed that just doesn’t get used at all.
So why not make use of it?
Get yourself some big storage boxes or plastic bins with wheels (this makes it soooo much easier to access your stuff, but no wheels works too). Put stuff in here that you won’t need all the time (like you’re out of season shoes or winter comforters) unless you don’t mind bending down all the time to get to your things.
Bedroom Storage Ideas: Watch Your Back
Use the space behind your door for storing things. You can use it to store hair products, cleaning supplies like they’ve done in the pic below, or craft supplies or basically whatever you can fit in the customizable bins.
Yes, I said customizable. That’s what I love the most about this system. You can make it to fit your needs and switch it up once your needs change.
Bedroom Storage Ideas: It’s Been There All Along
Your walls are not just walls, they’re storage too. Just put up some shelves and bam. Instant storage.
Store books, documents, cards, or anything that will fit and if you have clutter to contain, then that’s what baskets are for (to hide clutter).
Bedroom Storage Ideas: Creativity Goes a Long Way
When you don’t have furniture with drawers and don’t know where to put your jewelry. Get yourself some washi tape and get your jewelry all organized.
It doubles as pretty artwork too!
There you have it!
