Start by determining any special uses of the bedroom other than sleeping and relaxing (e.g., home office, baby’s crib and supply storage etc.) This will let you plan how to use the space in your bedroom. Conversely if your bedroom has items in it that shouldn’t be there remove them.
Get your clothes off the floor
1. Store your clothes in the closet on hangers or shelves or in a dresser. Double your hanging space by installing a lower hanging bar. A lower bar also makes it easy for children to tidy up their rooms and select their clothes to wear. Add an extra shelf up high in the closet to store off-season items.
Look for storage spaces in unused areas of your room
2. Under-bed storage containers are very helpful for oversized items or off-season clothing. If your bed is very low to the ground you can purchase bed risers to raise the bed and make room for containers.
Use the wall space in your room when there is limited floor space
3. Use vertical space to add more storage. An armoire or tall-boy dresser may suit your room better than a long, low dresser.
Use the back and inside of doors to store items.
4. Use the inside of the bedroom and closet doors to hang items. Over-the-door rack and hook products accommodate shoes, jewellery, scarves, ties, etc.
