Recently, we took a look at feng shui and how to redesign your room to get a better night’s sleep. But if your bedroom is limited in size, you may find that your options are limited too. They say that big is beautiful, but good things can come in very small packages. You just need to be a little more creative.
If you’ve got a small bedroom, have a read of these 5 space-saving tips that will help you improve this key room of the house.
Cut Out the Clutter
Before you do anything else, spend some time sorting through your room to identify what’s essential to store in your bedroom, and what’s simply causing clutter. Are there other areas of the house where things such as shoes, coats and sentimental items can be kept? If so, rehome them to make more space for the essentials.
Instead of letting the clutter pile up around you, maximise the use of floor space with underbed storage. If you already have an elevated bed frame, invest in a few quality storage boxes that can tuck neatly underneath. Alternatively, a bed with fitted drawers will have an attractive finish, to keep your personal belongings discreet and out of sight.
When space is already quite precious, a bulky wardrobe or chest of drawers can be more detrimental than beneficial. Fitted furniture can be made to measure for your room’s unique dimensions; floor-to-ceilings cupboards and wardrobes can be designed around your needs, organising your belongings whilst making your room look magnificent.
Rethink the Layout
As well as creating bespoke fitted furniture, a furniture specialist can assess your room to identify areas where the design and layout can be improved. For example, shelving can eliminate the need for a bedside table, or hanging lights can replace stand-alone lamps. Think outside the box and the possibilities are endless!
Fold Down Bed
If the bedroom in question is a spare room that’s only used from time to time, you may want to consider switching the bed for something more flexible. A fold down bed is ideal for homeowners who want to create a multi-functional space for everyday use, whilst keeping the option of having guests to stay open.
