There are always ways to make the most of the space you have in each of the rooms in your home. You can de-clutter and position things in different ways so that they cover less space. In the bedroom though, it can be tricky because this is the room where one of the biggest pieces of furniture in your house lives – your bed! Although this is not the easiest piece of furniture to work round, in the following article we will look at a few ways that you can make the most of the space in even the smallest of bedrooms.
Get A Smaller Bed
Although having a big bed is something we would all prefer, but we might not actually need. You need to think about your circumstances and think about whether or not you could have a smaller sized bed. You may be surprised the amount of space it will free up if you do.
Get Rid Of Larger Storage Furniture
If you have a small bedroom, dressing tables and chests of drawers can often take up a lot of floor space. Consider opting for under the bed storage for holding your clothes and other belongings. Not only will this free up some floor space, it will help open your room up a bit and make it feel more spacious.
Consider A Futon
It is a sensible idea in a small bedroom to consider the use of furniture that has more than one function. A futon for example, doubles up as both a sofa and a bed.
Maximise Wall Space For Storage
Instead of having bookcases and other storage furniture that takes up a lot of floor space, replace these with closed and open shelves. By doing this you will be making efficient use of all that unused space on your walls and your bedroom won’t feel as cluttered. There are many places online where you can find out how to make a bookshelf, if you are interested in DIY.
Organise Your Wardrobes To Make Efficient Use Of The Space
You should properly organise your wardrobes so that you make the most of all the vertical space available to you. The more clothes and other belongings you are able to hang up in wardrobes, the less need you will have for other pieces of furniture that will take up the remaining floor space.
Make Use Of Other Rooms In Your House
Do you have an extra closet or storage space in your hall that you are not using for anything in particular? If so, you should consider using this to store clothes that you only wear at certain parts of the year or for formal occasions – i.e. things that don’t get worn very much and store these in the hall closet. That way, you don’t have to get rid of smart and seasonal clothes, but can store them away without needing more furniture in your bedroom than the available floor space will allow.
