There's a lot to love about small bedrooms. They're cozy, easy to keep clean, and often they can help your mind create a clear distinction between awake space and sleeping space. In fact, the biggest problem with small bedrooms is usually a lack of storage — whether it's for clothes, shoes, or bedside necessities like your iPhone and a late-night snack.
1. Double-Duty Mirror
2. Dresser as Nightstand
3. Wall-Mounted Lamp
If your nightstand surface area is at a premium, like the one in this blue bedroom, don't waste it on a clunky table lamp. Instead, mount a telescoping sconce on the wall, above or next to the bed, or use the clamp to affix it to a shelf or headboard.
4. Upside-Down Bracket for Clothes
If you have just 8 inches of wall space to spare, you can have hanging clothes storage. When turned upside down, this simple shelf bracket becomes a compact clothing rack. You can even use a few to create a DIY open-closet system.
5. Practical Pegboard
6. Cabinet-Headboard Hybrid
7. Clothes Hanging Over the Dresser
Who has room for a clothing rack and a dresser? Probably not the genius who decided to hang one over the other. A simple curtain rod can maximize storage space — and look super modern — when hung from the ceiling.
8. Super-High Shelves
Eke even more storage out of your small space by mounting shelves close to the ceiling. Use them for items you don't reach for every day, but that still belong in the bedroom. This one is the perfect size to fit over most doorways.
9. Under-Bed Storage
Just about any bed can be converted into a storage bed with the help of a few boxes on casters. And these sleek black ones will go (mostly) unnoticed when tucked away. Use them to store blankets, shoes, or an out-of-season wardrobe.
10. Wall-Mounted Cubby
When mounted by the bed, this compact cube provides two tiers of shelving without taking up an inch of floor space. Bonus: You can hang it at any height you want, or double up for extra bedside storage.
11. Hidden Hamper
Dirty clothes need to go somewhere, but traditional hampers take up way too much floor space — especially in a tiny bedroom. Swap the traditional bin for an airy, modern storage table. It's a great place to toss your dirty laundry (as long as it's not super smelly!) and gives you an additional surface to play with.
