Bedroom Storage Ideas – A tidy room is an efficient room. Apart from as creating more space, a tidy room will make finding your possessions much easier. Bedrooms, either large or small, with well planned storage furniture will create a satisfying and efficient living space.
The most important item in the bedroom is the bed itself. Storage beds can make a good contribution making efficient use of the space under the mattress. Drawer storage beds provide easy access to items required on a regular basis: they are easy to access and the drawers provide neat compartments. The ottoman storage beds with their lift up bases, are much better for storing larger items or items more rarely accessed such as winter or summer quilts, bedding, suitcases, seasonal clothing and accessories. Make sure the storage ottoman bed you choose has power assistance for lifting the frame and is suitable for the mattress of your choice!
Bedroom drawer chests come in a variety of styles and sizes. The aesthetic design is a personal preference but a smaller tall chest will generally have more useful storage that a lower wide chest and take up less valuable floor space. Also many chunky designs waste a lot of space and actual storage is quite minimal. Check the depth of drawers for your use. Deep drawers may be needed for jumpers and bags but a shallow drawer is much more useful for storing smalls!
The wardrobe is perhaps one of the most efficient storage pieces in the room. Hanging storage is perfect for shirts dresses trouser and coats. Items can be hung close together without creasing and still allow easy access Larger rooms may have space for built in wardrobes which will have the advantage of storage from floor to ceiling, but for smaller bedrooms the flexibility of a freestanding wardrobe may be necessary. This space above may still be used for example for stacking storage boxes and similarly that space under the hanging rail may be useful for hats shoes bags and small accessories .
The walls in a bedroom can provide ample opportunity for creating extra storage space. The walls generally provide a superior fixing and more stable surface than the floor, but also frees up floor space and will give the room a less cluttered look. A bedside table fixed to the wall will provide the perfect surface for beside beverages and books and can be fixed at the optimum height for your bed.
Wall shelf units are available in many forms from the simple bookshelf to the more elaborate wall unit with built in cupboards and lights.
Finally, storage Boxes: The original ottoman was designed as a storage box and placed at the foot of the bed. Today there are many types and sizes of storage box available which can help to organise your space. They may be used in or on top of the wardrobe, inside the ottoman storage bed to create neat little compartments, or freestanding in a corner to hide those last little oddments looking for a home.
