Doing more with the less stuff is the core idea of designing any space, be it your bedroom, living space or the dining arena. But, we often get so accustomed with the existing pieces of furniture and the way they are arranged, that our perception of a room’s architecture becomes limited. And, hardly can we locate the strategic storage spaces, which would have otherwise increased the functionality of the home. When it comes to bedroom, the shortage of storage space poses the biggest problem. But, a little structural makeover can get you some great storage space without compromising on the room’s aesthetics.
Finding out hidden storage space is quite a tricky job. But, if you are creative enough, you can easily spruce up a tiny space with an aesthetic storage utility. So, before you are stuck up with storage dilemma, look at these quick tips to utilize space efficiently.
Top of the closets
One of the most underutilized space in every bedroom is the top of the closets. Most of the time, closets are likely to offer 3-6 feet of vertical storage space on the top. Although a walk-in closet comes with better options, the standalone closets can also be functional in their own way. You might have noticed that even after stuffing the box and bars in a walk-in closet, a considerable amount of space is left out which we are reluctant to use . You can easily use this place to store small items. You can also utilize the vertical space in the separate closets. The flat, vacuum-sealed storage bags offer ideal storage solution for your extra blankets and pillows.
Under the Bed
We often overlook using this space, but if used properly, the space under the bed can serve as a great storage utility. Many people are apprehensive of storing things under the bed as they get too dusty there. But, there are some easy ways (obviously other than frequent cleaning) to make this storage space dust free. Use vacuum sealed bags to pack away your mushy stuff, such as blankets, extra pillows, old tattered sweaters, and so on.
Adding drawers under the bed will build up additional functional space. So, if you are facing storage problems in a petite space, these drawers might serve you a utilitarian solution. You can store your large collection of utilities inside the drawers.
Behind the Doors
This storage option hardly crosses our mind when looking for storage space in a tiny room. But, space behind the doors can offer you a whole new world of options to solve your storage issues. A few fixtures, such as hanging pockets hanging shower caddies, organizers and self-adhesive hooks can help you use the back of the doors in a lot better manner. Right from your clothing to napkins, hot pads, anything can be stored easily over here.
You might think that these places are too small to make any noticeable differences, but nooks and crannies offer a great storage facility as far as your bedroom is concerned. Once you start exploring these options, you will be surely amazed at how much extra space they can open up.
