Learning how to organize a small bedroom is important for all residents of a small apartment or house. Reading this article will help you optimise the available space in your ‘box’ bedroom.
Firstly and most obviously, clear all the unnecessary stuff out of your small bedroom. The smaller the room, the faster it’s going to become messy, even if you don’t have that much stuff. Here are some tips you might not have considered yet:
With minimal bedroom space, you’ve got to think creatively about storage spaces. A platform bed with storage below is an option that will eke out a bit more function from your small bedroom. This way you have the opportunity to transform the bottom platform into a “closet”.
This space can be used to store suitcases, shoes you do not use, or any other bulky object. The idea is to use any available centimetres. After all, your room has a limited space.
Use the walls
Walls are vertical spaces that are often not used efficiently. Instead of putting paintings or other aesthetic objects, we can use this space by installing horizontal shelves. A wall with horizontal upstairs racks is nothing but a huge wardrobe without doors. Imagination is the limit to using this free space.
A wall mounted flat TV instead of one on a unit, a small shelf in lieu of a bedside table, or sconces instead of bulky bedside lamps.
Remove the table from the bedroom
If you are at all pressed for space, a table should be the first thing to go from a bedroom. If you want to eat, write or use your pc in the bedroom, consider using a portable table.
Move things elsewhere in your home
One of the easiest ways to organize a small bedroom is to keep fewer things in it. If you have the possibility, move possessions you are keeping in your bedroom to another room of the house. If you can’t move things into other rooms, it may be time to consider getting rid of some excess stuff. A clean, simple look will help the room feel bigger.
Advantage of a big mirror
When it comes to magnifying small spaces, this is the oldest trick in the book. People use mirrors for a variety of reasons. You can use them to tie a tie or to touch up your makeup. You can use mirrors to floss your teeth properly and shave effectively. For many, mirrors are a necessity in everyday life.
If you live in a small apartment or have a few small bathrooms, incorporate mirrors into your décor. Mirrors help space look bigger, so hang a mirror in that small powder room or bedroom to reflect the open space of the room.
You can also use mirrors to help broaden a narrow hallway. Place a few identical mirrors side by side along the hallway wall to make it look less cramped.
