Optimising space in your bedroom

Optimising space in your bedroom

Your bedroom should be a serene, tranquil environment where you can relax and sleep in comfort and style.

After all, a bedroom that is messy, cluttered and untidy will not only make you want to avoid it at all costs, it can also lead to a disturbed sleep – they do say “tidy space, tidy mind.”

When it comes to organising your bedroom space, it can often be difficult to allocate sufficient storage space to accommodate your endless collection of clothes, shoes and accessories, leaving your bedroom feeling unorganised and messy.

However, this needn’t be the case as there are a host of clever storage solutions that your can integrate into your bedroom, whatever its size, allowing you to create a stylish, spacious environment that you will want to spend time in.

We’ve complied a list of some bedroom storage ideas that are perfect for complementing and enhancing both contemporary and traditional spaces, opening your eyes to innovative design that is sure to add a functional yet stylish dimension to your home.

Wardrobe space

This is the one area of your bedroom that has the greatest capacity to provide a unique storage solution that will allow you to make the most of your available space in your bedroom.

Available in a wide variety of colours, finishes, and designs, fitted wardrobes can be designed to meet your exact requirements, providing a practical space that is able to accommodate your lifestyle (and your clothing!).

With the ability to incorporate drawers, shelves, rails, and shoe space, the possibilities are truly limitless when it comes to wardrobe design, allowing you to create a storage solution that reflects your needs and expectations.


It is often the case that our bedroom is home to some of our favourite treasures and trinkets, which you like to have on display, and show off at every opportunity.

But sometimes the practicalities of having your favourite items on show is not ideal, leaving your bedroom feeling cluttered and overpowering.

Both floor level and wall shelving can be great ways of integrating your favourite items into your room, in a tidy, organised way. Hanging shelves are perfect for displaying books, ornaments and photo frames, as is ground level shelving.  Shelving can also add an interesting dimension to the overall look and feel of your room.

Shelving is great for both large and smaller bedrooms but works far more effectively in bedrooms with limited space.

Under-bed storage

Bedroom storage comes in all shapes and sizes, and can be factored into the places in your room that you least expect.

Integrating storage under your bed can be a great way of utilising flooring space that is already being used. Buy investing in under-bed canvas boxes, containers and drawers, it will provide the ideal space to store your winter duvets, seasonal clothing that you don’t need all year round, and even your accessories.


Although many drawers can sometimes feel imposing, especially if you are working with a smaller space, they still remain one of the most effective storage solutions, providing ample space to store away clothing, accessories, and other everyday items that can often become an eyesore.

Remember many drawers also come complete with a large upper surface that lends itself perfectly to a wide range of decorative items.
