How To Make the Most of Your Bedroom Space

Making the Most of Bedroom Space Header

Effective management of available space in your bedroom  is a key factor in creating a relaxing environment where you can get a better night's sleep. A cluttered room can very stressful.

If you feel that your room is too small, take a look at the position of your bed. Pushing it against a wall can leave your room feeling more spacious. If this fails, it could mean that the bed is too large for the room. Swapping a king or double queen for a twin or full-sized bed can provide you with more bedroom space.

If a lack of storage space is making your room look cluttered, consider compartments. These bedroom storage devices are becoming increasingly popular because they offer a storage space for clothes, shoes even books. Many storage devices are subtle and can easily be hidden.

How to Utilize Under Bed Storage

If you’re searching for somewhere in your bedroom to store things , don’t forget about under the bed. Lots of people have beds that are lifted off the floor, leaving a foot or more of usable but concealed storage. Some individuals even have a captain’s bed that has drawers already vacant for usage. If your bed doesn’t have drawers, there are many products that can organize your under bed storage for you.

There are many items that are perfect for under bed storage such as Christmas decorations are used once per year. Shoes that are not worn frequently, linens and other seasonal clothing are ideal for under bed storage.

Maximizing Closet Space

A disorderly closet can be very exasperating to go through. If you desire extra closet space, there is no need to knock down any walls.

If you haven’t worn some of your clothes for over year, give it away or have a yard sale. Identify the clothes you wear often, and get rid of everything else.

You can purchase storage containers or use cardboard boxes if you want to save money. Pack purses, sweaters, and shoes in different containers and label them clearly so you can find them easily in the future.

Many people fail to utilize the back of their closet door or closet wall space. Putting a rack at the back of your closet or pegs on the wall are great for hanging scarves, ties, shoes or hats. You can also hang frequently used items such as your pajamas and bathrobe.

Keeping shoes on the closet floor will only lead to chaos, no matter how neatly they are organized. Shoes should be stored in plastic boxes, shoe dressers, or shoe racks that hang on the back of the closet door.

Another way to save space is to attach dividers to existing shelves. In reality they do not create additional space but rather they help to organize your closet, which creates a feeling of roominess.

How to Create Attic Access

Not many houses are designed for attic conversion; because of this access routes are normally basic. In most cases, the only way to access the attic is via a hatch plate tucked inside ceiling of the closet, but this does not have to be the only way into the attic. You can create more easily accessible access to your attic by installing a larger opening complete with an attic ladder. In this way you can fit larger things into the attic (suitcases, Christmas decorations, etc.).

Attic Stairs in Garage

Once you've establish a starting place, you will need to determine where the ladder will end. From there, it is as simple as following the directions which usually come with the ladder, and researching how to carefully cut ceiling joists without causing your ceiling to sag. Another alternative would be to build a dormer above the stairwell. This will give the stairs ample natural light. You should avoid building this staircase in area with expected traffic.

Bedside Bonanza

When space is at a premium, consider some different spots that may yield new storage for you. There are many remarkable beds for sale that offer full-size storage in innovative ways. Some have mattresses which can be lifted like the hood of a car to reveal easily accessible storage space. Others have built-in drawers underneath, providing additional dresser space. There is a wide variety of multipurpose bed systems.

Smart Seating

Ottomans and chairs are clever space savers. If you do a search on ottomans with storage you will have a wide variety to pick from, such as large ottomans with hollow interiors, small storage cubes that can be used independently or in a set, and multi-use benches that have storage baskets.

Ottomans are nice additions to any room because they can be used for seating or tables. There are also unique armchairs that have storage space for items under the seat. There are also armchairs that can be transformed as a twin bed.

There are many smart ways to convert your seating into storage or sleeping areas. It is a good idea to check catalogs that specialize in furniture storage.

Talented Tables

While you are putting furniture to fit in small space, you can try a dining room table that converts into a sofa, or a convertible coffee table that can also be used as a laptop desk, or maybe even a dining room table and hutch that converts into a bed when it’s time to turn in for the night.

When it comes to decorating and furnishing small spaces you have to make smart decisions about the type of furniture you buy.
