Creative Bedroom Space Saving Ideas

It seems no matter how large a room is, over time, it shrinks, becoming decidedly smaller. We all accumulate things here and there, which eventually adds-up to a lot, taking-up valuable space. Tripping, stepping-over, and maneuvering become tiresome in short order, giving you the motivation to do something about the situation. The trouble is, you just don’t know how you’ll be able to accommodate all that’s in your bedroom.

Creative Bedroom Space Saving Ideas

You’ve run out of closet space, every shelf, nook and corner is stuffed full, and, there’s no more room under the bed. Forget about trying to put anything else in your dresser and other anywhere else for that matter. What you need is a plan, one that won’t require a total gut and remodel of the space, and, one that’s inexpensive and simple to implement. If you get a bit creative, and think outside-the-box, you’ll come-up with some clever solutions.

A small bedroom can present big design challenges. When there’s a depressingly finite amount of square footage to play with, must-haves like a bed and a dresser can be stubborn in their lack of flexibility. You may think there’s no way to make your space feel bigger—short of moving the walls—but that’s not necessarily true. With a bit of ingenuity, you can reclaim a surprising amount of real estate in your sleeping space.

First, when we think of storage, we generally think in one dimension, and that is, depth. The amount of space inside from the top to bottom of a drawer or shelf are our primary focus. Organization pros tell us to think vertically — in addition — it’s better to consider arrangement. Just by rearranging items alongside one another on a shelf or in a drawer can substantially increase its capacity. Here are some more creative bedroom space saving ideas:

  • Opt for dual purpose furniture. Bedrooms can be more spacious by doubling-up furniture functions. For instance, furniture with built-in storage can perform more than one task, while saving valuable space. If you’re already storing things under your bed, you should consider going through them, ridding yourself of what you don’t need, and, then rearranging what’s left. Yet another trick is to slightly raise your bed for even more space.
  • Use decor sparingly. While knickknacks, pictures, and other decor might not take-up a whole lot of space physically, psychologically these make a room feel cluttered. So, pare down on these items to create a better visual sense of space.
  • Maximize closet space. Though this will take a bit of planning and adjustment, you’ll find quite a bit more space by installing a closet organizer. The trick is to find the most optimal solution that not only provides more space, but also, allows for easy retrieval. Frequently used items ought to be easiest to reach, while those used occasionally can be placed in higher places, or, toward the back.
  • Pare down on furniture. You might like the fact that you’ve got dedicated spaces for this and that, keeping you more organized. However, if you’re not using all of the storage space provided, you’re wasting space in your bedroom. Like the closet, it’s better to maximize storage space and consolidate.

As you know, color has quite a bit to do with space in a room. You can refresh your bedroom by choosing an interior paint cover that creates a larger sense of space. This is also the ideal time to change out light fixtures for better aesthetics and function.
