Utilise storage with a tall bookshelf

If you’ve got a small bedroom but have the issue of storage, why not consider investing in a tall bookshelf? It’s also a great way to separate the room if positioned right, which gives off the illusion of more space, just like this one from Wayfair

Storage bed for small bedrooms

Choosing a good bed for a small bedroom is not only setting the tone for the rest of your room, but it can serve as additional storage so that you have a place for your things that you don’t want on show. This 4 drawer storage bed from Happy Beds is ideal for small spaces to hide clothes, books, makeup and any other bedroom items you can think of. 

Floating bedside table to save space in your bedroom

For small bedrooms where the bed takes up most of the space, a floating bedside table is the ideal solution. This floating bedside table from Not On The High Street even has a built in shelf for extra storage. The beauty of a floating bedside table is that you can position it as low or as high as you want depending on your bed. We love this small bedroom idea for studio apartments and super small spaces. 

No wardrobe? Use a clothing rack

Clothing racks can be really useful if you don’t own many clothes, or if most of your clothes are in a chest of drawers. When styled right, it can be an aesthetically pleasing piece of decor for your bedroom.

Headboard with storage

It’s important for small bedrooms to not feel cluttered and the best way to do this is to minimise having too much furniture in the room. A great way for a minimal look with maximum storage is to buy a headboard with built in storage. There’s a lot of storage headboards on the market, including this JD Williams headboard. It has storage solutions on the side and front of the headboard so that you can utilise the space to suit your style. 

Be organised with an Ottoman

If you have extra space at the foot of your bed and you want to fill it with additional seating, why not consider an ottoman. They offer plenty of storage for quilts, blankets and pillows. If you have difficulty in finding space to store extra bedding, this is perfect. Plus, it looks glamorous if you opt for a velvet styled one.

Cube Shelves for extra storage

No room for a bookshelf? No worries… Cube shelves are a win-win storage solution for small bedrooms. Not only do they offer multiple storage options inside the cube and on top, but when styled right they can look really stylish. Use art and plants to mix in with your items to create an inspiring space in your room.

Where do you put a bed in a small bedroom? 

Placing the bed up against the wall further away from the door creates the illusion that the room is much bigger. This is because the eye will draw in on the immediate space when entering the room instead of focusing on the bed. It also allows you to play around with rugs and other furniture that may not have fit in the room if the bed was centrally placed. 

How do you make a small bedroom look nice?

Everyone has a different style but when it comes to small spaces you have to think in a more clever way about the space you’re styling. Opt for simple coloured walls like grey and white to brighten up your space and don’t clutter your room with bulky dressers and drawers. If you can, get floating nightstands and arrange shelves in a way to bring style to your walls which will minimise on furniture.
