Packed with clothes, shoes, toys, knickknacks and personal accessories, your home’s bedrooms can quickly become the most cluttered spaces in your house. While getting rid of some of the clutter is one way to combat it, it’s certainly not the only way. Creating more storage options is another. Check out these nifty tips from The RoomPlace to maximize storage space in your home’s bedrooms.
Open Up Space with a Daybed
Instead of having a full-size bed in the guest room, or two twin beds in the kids’ room, try a daybed in either one. Daybeds look like stylish sofas, and daybeds with trundles feature a pull-out bed that can come out at night and put back into place during the day. This gives you more space for a dresser, cabinet or other bedroom storage options that might otherwise be impeded by a larger bed.
Take Advantage of Bunk Beds
Bunk beds are a fun solution for kids’ rooms, opening up space by stacking beds on top of each other. They can also work if you only have one child in the room. The top area of the bunk can become instant storage space for toys, games, stuffed animals or other stuff that is often found cluttering the bedroom floor. Instead of a standard ladder, you could maximize storage space even further by opting for a wooden stairway that doubles as a storage chest.
Go for a Bed with Built-in Storage
While you may be used to shoving things under the bed for storage, there’s an even better option that makes more organized use of the space. Go for a bed that already has storage options built right in. An ideal choice for the kid’s room is a storage bed with a built-in bookcase, while the master suite would look dashing with a full-sized bed or queen-sized bed featuring storage drawers.
Try Benches and Ottomans with Storage
Seating areas in bedrooms can be handy, and they’re even handier when they come with built-in storage spaces. Storage benches make a delightful addition to any bedroom, and they can be more stylish and useful than the standard toy box.
Storage ottomans can be placed anywhere in the bedroom, from the foot of the bed to the walk-in closet, bringing extra storage along the way. You can even find fun styles for kids’ rooms, such as the alligator ottoman that can keep smaller toys and accessories safe and out of sight.
A number of other creative storage solutions are also available for your bedrooms. A bunk bed caddy can hold items on the side of the bunk bed. Under-bed storage options include clear boxes or even wooden drawers. Shelving units that reach from the floor to the ceiling can create a slew of extra storage space – and you can even use your storage ottoman as a footstool to reach the highest heights.
With all these solutions at the ready, you can easily say goodbye to bedroom clutter — and hello to maximized storage space. Shop storage options at The RoomPlace now.
