The placement of storage systems is one of the key points that you need to pay attention to when planning your bedroom interior. They should not clutter up the place and attract attention to themselves – we tell how to solve the issue of storage in the bedroom well.
1. Place a bet on the cabinet
By the volume of things that can hold cabinets, they lose only to dressing rooms. Separate or sliding wardrobes – the choice depends only on the size and layout of your room. The advantage of sliding wardrobes is that they use all the space from floor to ceiling, and the facades can be made virtually inconspicuous. Freestanding cabinets are suitable for a small amount of clothing.
Use the wall at the head
How to remove storage systems from the eyes? One of the methods is to place them on the wall at the head of the bed: then during the rest they will not distract with their appearance. Such cabinets are an excellent opportunity to use usually non-functional space: additional shelves, cabinets and niches will not hinder you.
3. Keep things in bed
The bed can be used not only as a place to sleep, but also as an additional storage system. How? One way is to buy a model with a built-in inner box or separate roll-out drawers. Usually only dust accumulates under the bed, we advise you to use the space as efficiently as possible.
4. Hide the little things in the head
Pay attention to the models of beds with a headboard that can be used for storage. It can be built-in shelves or niches – they are perfect for placing personal items, books, rugs. Do you like to do something with your own hands? Install several drawers or a small rack at the head of the bed.
5. Hang shelves from the ceiling
Usually the space near the ceiling remains empty. However, this is one of the possibilities to increase the usable area of the bedroom. Several shelves will not create discomfort and will not put pressure on residents, but there will be more storage space for books, albums and rarely used things.
6. Place the rack under the windowsill.
The main obstacle to placing storage systems under the window in standard apartments is the presence of a heating radiator at this place. If you are lucky and the batteries are moved to adjacent walls or are completely absent, install several low racks or cabinets with built-in drawers under the window. Additional storage and a comfortable reading place are two in one.
7. Do not ignore dressers
Few bedrooms have a chest of drawers – a compact, roomy storage system. Do you want to use the internal space as efficiently as possible? Put in the drawers special dividers for different things – using such a chest of drawers will immediately become more convenient.
8. Add wall shelves
