How to choose the right bedroom storage for you

How to choose the right bedroom storage for you

In an ideal world, we’d all like to live in a clutter free home, right? But realistically, ridding your home of the mountains of clutter that you have accumulated other the years is harder than you might think. Let’s face it, the very thought of throwing our favourite keepsakes is a sure fire way to trigger an instant feeling of panic and dread…

And your bedroom is a magnet for clutter, after all, it’s the room in your home that contains the most of your personal possessions. If everything doesn’t have its place, your room can quickly resemble a car boot sale rather than a clutter free haven of tranquillity.

But if you struggle with mess and clutter, there are lots you can do to create an inviting, liveable bedroom space by simply integrating effective storage solutions into your home.

Here at Kenneth Installations in Glasgow, we are experts when it comes to integrating clever storage solutions (often in some of the most unexpected places) allowing you to create a personal and intimate space that you will want to spend time in.

But first and foremost, it’s worthwhile writing a list of the items in your bedroom that could benefit from extra storage. From handbags, shoes and clothes through to electricals, bed linen and towels, this will help you to establish a clear understanding of the types of storage that you and your bedroom will benefit from most.

Fitted and walk in wardrobes

Fitted wardrobes are one of the most popular, space saving storage solutions (you’ll be amazed at how much you can pack into one space!). And, they’re super versatile too, meaning that they can be adapted to fit into the style, size and shape of your room.

Providing generous hanging and shelf space, fitted wardrobes can be specially designed to accommodate your exact storage needs, providing space for all of your favourite possessions in a way that suits your needs!

Freestanding drawers and wardrobes

Freestanding drawers and wardrobes can also allow you to optimise space in your bedroom. And they look great too, particularly if you pick a style that will complement and enhance your existing décor!

Horizontal chest drawers with lots of spacious drawers are perfect for storing large chunky knit wear that can often dominate the space in your wardrobes, whereas, low, wide drawers are great for storing accessories such as handbags, scarves and even shoes!

Bedside tables and dressing tables are also effective storage solutions that can instantly add a whole new dimension to your room.

Under-bed storage

Under-bed storage is a great way to make use of your available floor space, without encroaching on the rest of your room. This is a type of storage that many people disregard, but it should never be underestimated as it is great for storing away bed linen, books, clothing and even gadgets.


Shelving is perfect for optimising floor space in your bedroom and can be a great way of showing off your favourite trinkets, without imposing on the rest of your room. Shelving is also super versatile, and can easily accommodate a host of items that you struggle to find a space for in your home.
