Yes, we know that a lot of people are big advocates of the ‘less is more’ philosophy, but it can sometimes be very hard to live by that rule and enjoy your clutter-free home. However, you can surely make that happen if there’s enough storage space, so stay with us and keep on reading if you’re intrigued.
Here are five versatile, creative, and crafty storage ideas you can use in your own home, so check them out and give your bedroom a fantastic makeover!
1. Use the space under your bed
One of the best storage ideas you can use in your bedroom is actually maximizing the space under your bed. It’s a fantastic way to add a whole area of storage under your sleeping space, and the good thing about it is that you can make it happen even if you currently don’t have any storage space at all. If buying a new storage bed isn’t what you want, you can always come up with a DIY project and go for an under-the-bed storage solution. The most effective way to do that is to raise your bed and add some storage containers underneath it. Once that’s done, the only thing left is to change their color in order to match your bedroom, so buy some paint and accomplish the task like a real pro.
2. Stack your old suitcases to make a vintage nightstand
You’ve probably already seen photos of cute, vintage nightstands made from old suitcases all over the Internet, and you know what? This is a fantastic option if you’re a fan of vintage home décor ideas, so be sure you ask your mom or grandma if they have a couple of such suitcases available for your new DIY project. The only thing you should do is to give them new life by using paint in different shades, so that they can flawlessly match your interior. Once that’s done and your suitcases are dry, you should just stack them next your bed, as they make a fabulous nightstand that adds a touch of style to your bedroom. Of course, you can use them as storage for things you don’t use on a day-to-day basis, like a winter blanket in the middle of summer, or your favorite swimsuits and summer footwear during winter.
3. Get rid of unnecessary stuff and build a bookshelf from old dresser drawers
Before you decide that you simply don’t have enough storage space for all your necessities, you should definitely get rid of all unnecessary things that have been piling up in your house for God knows how long. Chaotic home leads to chaotic mind and thoughts, so be sure you hire a trusty junk removal company in the first place, and then find some storage space for the things you actually need. For example, if you no longer need your old dresser, all you have to do is to get rid of it – but after you’ve taken out its drawers. Then repurpose those drawers into bookshelves by arranging them however you want and hanging them on the wall. No matter which order you go for, you won’t make a mistake!
4. Maximize your drawer storage with drawer organizers
On the other hand, if you want to keep your dresser just as it is – don’t worry, there’s an amazing way to maximize the drawer storage in just a couple of simple steps. You’ve probably already heard about modular desk organizers people use to organize their kitchen or junk drawers, right? Well, you can use these in your bedroom, too – just place these in an empty dresser drawer (or one that doesn’t hold stacks of clothes), and toss all kinds of small items like hair pins, brush, comb, and hair ties inside. However, if you want to build them on your own, that’s also more than welcome. It’s particularly great when you want to utilize the storage space to the max, which isn’t always possible with organizers you buy online or in-store.
5. Make a DIY pegboard organizer and mount it to the wall
Even though it’s most commonly seen in any workshop or tool shed, the truth is that a pegboard can be a fantastic bedroom storage solution as well – no matter how silly it may sound. You don’t even have to be skillful at all when it comes to DIY projects, because this one is really a piece of cake. Just a little bit of paint in your favorite shade and a few screws will be more than enough to add a touch of color to your pegboard and mount it to the wall. Once that’s done, you’ll be able to store anything you like – from jewelry you wear on a daily basis, to your cozy scarves and go-to handbags. Apart from these, you can also hang some framed photos or anything similar, so you definitely won’t make a mistake with this creative and crafty storage solution.
As you can see, there are so many amazing ways to maximize the space in your bedroom and come up with useful storage ideas that really do the trick. Just be sure to bear our tips in mind, and you’ll see a fantastic improvement that’ll make your life much easier!
