Small bedrooms create a problem for storage in particular, but with a little creativity even this problem can be solved. Your ultimate aim is to have an organised, clutter-free room that’s cosy and a pleasure to spend time in. Here are some clever ideas:
- An Ottoman Storage Bed
A bed is the biggest piece of furniture in a bedroom, so it makes sense to make use of it as a storage option. The storage of an ottoman bed is great for tidying away bulky items like pillows, duvets and winter clothing which will also free up a lot of wardrobe space too.
- Fitted Wardrobes
It’s hard to cope without the invaluable storage of a wardrobe but a great space-saving option is to install a stylish fitted wardrobe. For those who have tons of clothing, you can even design your storage options such as extra shelving or hanging space. Check out Hampshire Fitted Wardrobes.

- Create the illusion of space with mirrors
Installing a fitted wardrobe with mirrors is a great way to make a small room look bigger, especially if you have it opposite the window. You’ll have lots of storage space in a contemporary wardrobe design, as well as having mirrors that reflect the light and make the room appear larger.
- Bedside Drawers
If you have a bedside table, you might not be making the most of the available space. Choose one with a shelf or drawers, or even better, both. This maximises your storage space in a compact and smart way.
- Headboard Storage
Did you know that you can also get headboards that come with storage? The key to finding clever storage solutions in small rooms is to grab every opportunity and this can include finding a headboard that comes with useful shelving.
- Get experimenting
Storage solutions are often a rather boring and unattractive affair, but they don’t have to be. It’s important to experiment, especially in a small room where the furniture is even more obvious. Wall storage can be made to look more special if it’s made form a luxury material for example. Consider suede or something colourful to make a statement.
- Make the most of space behind and above the bed
Combine headboard storage with wall-mounted shelving. Don’t waste an inch of potentially useful space such as the walls around and behind your bed.
- An Ottoman
Seating in a bedroom is useful but in a small room, there’s just no space. However, an ottoman makes a great combination of seat and storage space. An ottoman is the perfect place for storing spare bedding, coats, jumpers and any other items that are too bulky or annoying to store in your precious wardrobe space.
