Unexpected Ideas For Bedroom Storage

Mar 31 2015 - 10:35am

Since there's a fine line [1] between style and function, bedrooms can often present a challenge when it comes to storage. If you're stumped for solutions or want something that isn't predictable, here are seven ideas worth considering. Surprisingly, your nightstand can double up as a desk, while a raised bed is ideal for extra closet space. Happy organizing!

Get Lofty

If you're lucky enough to have high ceilings or you're converting your attic into a spare bedroom, make the most of it! While the options are endless, a loft is the perfect way to add additional storage for bigger items like bikes or boxes.

Ditch the Nightstands

Although it's common practice to frame your bed with nightstands, it's not always necessary. If you have a tiny room, forgo nightstands altogether; instead position your dresser by your bed. The result will be chic, not cluttered.

Double Up

Why limit your nightstand to just one purpose when it can serve two? Small enough to nestle into a tight corner but large enough to accommodate a petite chair, this piece doubles as a desk [5]. The best part? If you ever feel the urge to switch things up, this table can easily find a home in any room!

Divide and Conquer

Bookcase, headboard, nightstand — this piece does it all! Between the hidden drawers and open shelving, there's plenty of space to showcase yet hide your belongings. We also love the contrast of a modern piece against feminine wallpaper.

Raise Your Bed

For unexpected clothing storage, raise your bed! Then, use the space below as a closet. Complete the look with curtains that add color yet keep your wardrobe out of site.

Stack Your Shoes

If you love shoes but struggle to store them, try stacking wooden shipping pallets like this NYC studio apartment [10]. It's a cute and clever way to display shoes, and it turns the bed into a focal point.

Bring on the Books

This raised bookcase is something we can support. Not only does it create a place for books, it frees up ground space for things like an alternative gallery wall [13].
