Bedroom storage ideas: Smart and stylish solutions for clutter-free haven

When we look for bedroom storage ideas, we want some quick and easy solutions for maximising space and reducing clutter. However, ensuring these solutions are both smart and stylish is a decorating dilemma. Thankfully, we’ve asked interiors expert, Deirdre McGettrick – Founder of furniture search and discovery engine, and co-host of The DnA of Home Interiors podcast – what she believes is key for choosing the right aesthetic.

“As we’re all spending more of our time at home, setting the tone has become even more important for our overall well-being. Our bedrooms are the places we unwind after a busy day, which is why peaceful surroundings are essential in order to create a relaxed mindset and tranquil sleeping space. I would recommend keeping the wardrobe strictly for clothes, as this will ensure all your clothes have a dedicated home and will enable you to get yourself into a habit of regularly putting clothes away to keep the floor space and surfaces clear of clothing.”

Top tips for bedroom storage ideas

Declutter first

Bedroom storage ideasStorage is key to a clean, clutter-free bedroom, and Deirdre understands that decluttering and organising storage is a rather time-consuming process.

“In order to stay motivated and enjoy the process, don’t aim to do everything in one go. I’d recommend a three-pile system – bin, charity, sell. Using this system, once you’ve organised what you’re keeping and what you’re storing, you can explore the clever ways to incorporate storage in your bedroom. The aim is to keep it as tidy and as organised as possible.”

Choose a bed with in-built storage

Divans that open upwards are perfect for tiny bedrooms. Beds with drawers are also perfect – as long as there’s plenty of space to open them.

Consider a walk-in wardrobe

Bespoke options fit in any sized room, even with awkward corners, low or high ceilings, or slanted roofs. That’s why they’re perfect for maximising space and keeping things tidy.

Opt for floating or hanging shelves

Loft conversion bedroomNot only are they contemporary and on-trend, but they also keep the floor clear, which creates the illusion of extra room.

Add an ottoman

Ottoman’s or pouffes are both practical and stylish options that offer extra storage for minimal effort.

Choose your bedside tables wisely

Measure your bedside tables before deciding on the design. Work out the number of drawers you need in order to store your bedside items, then see whether floating or standing options are better for you.

Make use of corners

Don’t underestimate the storage potential of a compact corner shelf. Options include a DIY storage design, cupboards beneath slanted loft walls, or corner fitted tallboys. It all depends on the design of your room.
