So read on, and unleash your bedroom’s true storage potential. Plus, if Grayson Altenberg can maximize the space in his 100-square-foot micro-apartment, so can you.
1. Install shelves along the perimeter of your bedroom walls.
The least-used space in your apartment is prime real estate for implementing creative bedroom storage ideas. And no space is more unused than the 12 inches of wall below your ceiling.
Put that space to work by installing shelves along the perimeter of your bedroom walls, which will add dozens of square feet of storage space.
2. Clip binder clips onto your desk and store cords in their arms.
They may look sleek and be small, but your iPhone and MacBook cables take up more space than you realize. In fact, when they’re tangled beside your bed, they’re just clutter.
Organize those cables using a few binder clips. It’s one of many storage hacks for small spaces that works well on its own or when paired with a DIY charging box.
What’s that? You also want to keep your iPhone charger and headphones untangled while you’re on the go?
No problem. Follow these four simple steps, store everything in an eyeglasses case, and be on your decluttered way.
3. Hang a clothes rack in the corner.
The bad news: Your closet, if you have one, won’t grow on its own.
The good news: You can quickly make a closet.
Glad you asked. Hang a clothes rack in any empty corner.
4. Use crown molding as a shoe rack.
This simple bedroom storage hack will work best with heels, and look best if your footwear collection rivals Carrie Bradshaw’s. Because their sole supports itself against the wall, your shoes will stay put on their own.
The best part: Crown molding is unobtrusive since it blends in with the wall. Kind of like the Indominus rex from Jurassic World, except not deadly.
5. Opt for a headboard with storage.
If your bedroom is more bed than room, look at it as a storage opportunity. You can adapt your bed to store many things, starting at the top.
Choose a headboard like the BRIMNES headboard from IKEA that gives you storage space for books, magazines, mementos, and spare light bulbs for your space-saving BULBING Lamp or LiliLite.
