If, like me, you have lots of clothes and beauty bits – what girl doesn’t, you might be struggling for storage in your bedroom. While we love all our cute bits and bobs, we need lots of storage for everything. If not, our bedrooms end up in a total mess – clothes, makeup and goodness knows what else strewn everywhere.
Many of us struggle when it comes to storage as we don’t know the best way to go about it. However, getting your bedroom storage sorted out doesn’t have to be difficult. Don’t believe me? Here are a few simple tips and ideas for giving your bedroom all the storage space you could need.
Take advantage of under your bed
If you are lucky enough to have a bed that has an open bottom, take advantage of the space underneath it. Believe it or not, there is a lot more space under your bed than you might think – it’s an amazing place for storage.
Don’t make the mistake of just throwing things under the bed, though, make sure to store things neatly. The best option, when it comes to under-bed storage, is investing in a few clear crates or boxes and using them.
Top tips: If you want to keep dust and dirt off your bits and bobs, make sure to opt for crates or boxes that come with lids.
Invest in built-in wardrobes
Instead of buying stand-alone wardrobes, why not invest in built-in wardrobes? Not only do these look nicer and last longer, but they are great for storage space. You might think that having built-in wardrobes installed would be expensive, but that isn’t true.
When it comes to choosing the design for your built-in wardrobes, there are lots of options to choose from. One of the best designs when it comes to choosing doors for your wardrobes are louvre doors. Not only do these look great, but they are also long-lasting and affordable, so are ideal.
Invest in vertical storage
Many people make the mistake of thinking that storage space can only go on the floor, but that’s not the case. Vertical storage, like shelving units, are ideal for adding storage space to your home – they can be used to hold all sorts of things.
You can opt for individual shelves, or you could invest in a large shelving unit, it’s up to you. To get an idea of the various shelving units on offer, visit your local DIY store and have a browse. There are so many shapes and styles of shelving units that there is sure to be something perfect for your bedroom.
Add a chest
If you have space at the foot of your bed, why not add an old-fashioned chest to your room? Chests are great, as they are deep, and so offer lots of storage space. These can be used for storing anything, from clothing and bed linen to books and DVDs, so are ideal.
Keeping your bedroom tidy is impossible if you don’t have enough storage space, which is why having adequate storage is so important. There are so many options when it comes to adding storage, what you choose, depends on your personal preferences.
