Dealing with a Small Bedroom? How to Make the Most of Your Limited Space

Your bedroom is meant to be your own personal paradise into which you can disappear, relax and reflect after the long and tiring days at work.

However, true relaxation can be difficult when you’re living in what feels like a disorganised closet.

Small bedrooms can definitely be a challenge, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make the most of this small situation.

Here are a few tips and tricks you can keep in mind that will help ensure your small bedroom feels like a place you can be proud of.

How to Make the Most of a Small Bedroom

Get a Stylish Double Bed

Let’s be completely honest. The piece of furniture that will ultimately take up the most space in your bedroom will be your bed.

While you might love the idea of throwing yourself down onto a king-sized bed, adding a smaller, yet stylish, double bed to your room might be the best way to give yourself the extra bit of space you’ve been looking for.

Bed SOS is an example of a brand which offers a wide variety of stylish and elegant small double beds that will make your bedroom look and feel better than ever.

There are a fantastic range of options on the site, so rest assured you’ll be able to find something to suit your personal sense of taste.

Search around to find the right kind of bed for your small bedroom. It’s imperative you source the right style and size for the space; it’s the biggest object in the room, and as such should create the wow factor your room needs. 

Space Saving Storage

Another way you can add some serious space to your bedroom is to rethink the way you manage your storage.

I’ve just redesigned a child’s small bedroom for a friend and we’ve managed to incorporate a huge amount of valuable storage.

While cabinets and dressers might be what you’ve always used, considering adding some underbed storage options, which may very well be your best chance at clearing up some floor space.

These storage units are designed to help eliminate the need to take up a significant amount of otherwise usable space and relocate your storage to an area that was already occupied.

Whether you have incorporate bed storage or look to introduce storage trunks or bags under the open beds space, they can be real lifesavers for those who need extra space to help make the most of a small bedroom. 

Make Your Coats Disappear

There’s nothing worse than finally getting home and realising you don’t have anywhere suitable to put your coat.

The go-to method of throwing it wherever you can find the space is a sure-fire way to end up with a terribly cluttered room. We have this issue in our home, and even though we’ve created extra coat storage, we still don’t seem to have enough. 

Unfortunately, finding the space inside your wardrobe for this often bulky and heavy clothing can sometimes be impossible, so instead, why not pick up some trendy coat hooks that match the style of your room?

Just place these hooks conveniently on the back of your door and hey presto, you have a new unused area for you to hang your jackets and coats (you’ll also know exactly where to find them when you need them).

When it comes to organizing a small space, things can quickly start to feel impossible. However, by adding a few easy, storage-saving pieces to your small bedroom, you can end up with a space that looks and feels like a great place to relax.
