6. Hang your laundry hamper on the back of your bedroom door.
Your dirty clothes hamper doesn’t have to take up three square feet on the floor. In fact, it shouldn’t since you can buy a hanging hamper from Red Check Market’s Etsy shop.
Hang it on the back of your bedroom or closet door and relish all the floor space you just saved.
7. Use your radiator for shelf space.
Since we can’t live without them three to five months a year, we might as well use our radiators for storage.
DIY-ing a radiator shelf or buying a cover is a good idea for safety and aesthetics. And if you buy one with attached shelving, you’ll get some extra storage space out of it too.
8. Store your yoga mat on the wall.
Sure, yoga mats roll up nicely into a soft cylinder, but that’s still a cylinder you have to store somewhere.
You could build a little shelf for it. Or you could install a Namaste Yoga Mat Hanger behind your bedroom door.
9. Buy a bed frame with drawers.
Storage beds are one of the most obvious storage hacks for small bedrooms, but they’re also among the best. While every kind of space-saving bed will open up space in your bedroom, storage beds can give you as many drawers as a dresser.
Whether you use those drawers for storing clothes, files, or your movie collection is entirely up to you. And maybe also your significant other.
10. Build a staircase/bookcase.
In real life, or on HBO, we’ve all seen those beautiful custom-built loft beds with bookshelf stairs. There’s just one catch: Because they’re feats of engineering, they can intimidate anyone who wants to replicate the design but has no idea where to start.
If you’re handy and want to build tall shelving you can walk up, consider a shelf unit like the one above. It’s simpler than a full bedroom project, and still gifts you with shelving up to the ceiling.
