One of the challenges of designing modern homes is the limited square footage available for storage, which is felt most in small bedrooms where lack of space leads to haphazard organisation and clutter. Often bedrooms in large city apartments are too cramped for accommodating twin beds let alone cupboards or shelves.
For homeowners looking for space-saving solutions for bedrooms, these creative storage ideas created by experienced carpenters and interior decorators are designed for improving storage capacity. Our experts have developed innovative solutions with space saving furniture for taking maximum advantage of the available floor space to ensure that bedrooms look modern, comfortable and luxurious.
A floor-to-ceiling rectangular storage system design is the best option to increase bedroom storage when floor space is limited. This design makes efficient use of corners and organises practically everything due to the combination of multi-sized shelves, drawers and closed cabinets. The front and side drawers provide a combination of square and rectangular storage spaces to increase the functionality of the wardrobe.
The old concept of buying beds to accommodate the space available in a bedroom has now given way to custom-made built-in beds that are designed with storage underneath for bed linen or seasonal clothing. This kind of bed is best suited for rooms where floor space is limited as it adds visual depth. Built-in beds can also have side tables built into the wall for providing easy access to objects.
Bedroom furniture that multitasks as a storage unit is the best kind of customised furniture to build. Besides items like foldable beds or tables that drop down from the wall, there are various kinds of multi-functional smart storage furniture available nowadays. If there is no space to accommodate books, stack them in the cute storage below the bed, within reach for reading when you are unable to sleep.
Whether the little ones need privacy or the room lacks space, all-in-one children’s bedroom furniture that includes a pullout study table and loft beds for two is the perfect solution. The practical use of vertical space frees up floor area for playtime and school art projects, allowing the kids to use the floor to spread their chart papers, colours and other stationery.
For rectangular spaces like this one, use space-saver storage ideas that include floor to ceiling wardrobes with sliding doors. Doors that slide sideways do not occupy excess floor space and can be easily used by children. Such wall to wall storage spaces can be custom-fitted into the available area to store everything that the kids may require as they grow without having to worry about creating extra storage.
