8 Specific Tricks for Making the Most Out of the Space in Bedrooms
The bedroom is a great place for you to get a lot of storage into a small space. Even though you will be trying to maximize your space in your bedroom, you do not want to make the bedroom completely storage. Remember you need to be able to relax in the room as well as the rest.
1. The first thing you need to consider is minimizing the size of the bed. If you are a couple and you are used to a California King you should consider downsizing to a queen or full sized bed. If you are single maybe a simple twin sized bed would do the trick for you. The bed is the largest piece of furniture in the bedroom and if you can reduce the size of the bed you will be saving a lot of space.
2. Build shelving around as well as above the bed. You can build cabinets around the bed and shelving above the bed, getting rid of a headboard will help make this look much better and less crowded.
3. Decide what furniture you need to keep and what can go. Do you really need two oversized bedside tables or would one small table be sufficient to hold your alarm clock and cell phone? You should also consider the size of your dresser. Focus on a smaller slim dresser to hold your clothing that cannot be hung up.
4. Make the most out of your closet space. Use the top of the closet for storage. You can use storage containers to store blankets in the warmer seasons or seasonal clothing. In addition to this use an over the door shoe organizer to keep your shoes out of the bottom of the closet allowing for more storage space.
5. Get rid of the clothing that you no longer wear. This is a big issue for a lot of people when they move into a smaller space. Many people tend to keep clothes that they are hoping to fit into one day, but instead of allowing these items to take up precious space in your now smaller closet, you need to get rid of them. Remember if you lose weight you can always purchase new clothes later and that is always a great reward for weight loss.
6. Maximize the space under your bed. I mentioned in the first chapter how valuable the space under your bed can be and you really need to take advantage of this. If you have a lot of books and nowhere in your room for them to go, a few storage bins under the bed will get them out of the way and out of view.
7. Get your dresser organized. A lot of the time I find that people tend to just throw their clothes into their dresser, they don’t take the time to get it completely organized. Simply spending a little bit of time organizing your dresser can free up a lot of space and remember you can use this space for anything, it does not just have to be used for clothing.
8. Instead of using a bedside table, use a small storage cabinet. You can use the drawers for your socks, under clothing or pajamas, magazines or any other item that you need space for, even your sheet sets. The point of this is that you are finding extra space to store your possessions.
The bedroom takes a lot of work, but it is very easy to take advantage of all the space you can find. Remember that you don’t ever want any space in your bedroom to go to waste. However, you also do not want boxes and boxes piled up in the corners. Store it and hide it away in the room. Use furniture that can serve more than one purpose, like a small storage cabinet next to your bed. While you are making the most of your space make sure you keep the bedroom peaceful and an area where you will be able to rest.
