8 Unique Ways To Store Things In The Bedroom
You've had a stressful day at the office, fought the masses at the grocery store, inched your way down the highway in a massive traffic jam, and all you want now is your bedroom oasis. The relaxation of a comfy bed, surrounded by pillows, cozy throws, piles of laundry, tangled jewelry, wait...this oasis is a cluttered mess! How do you organize the bedroom so it can be your oasis away from the stresses of life? Well, we are here to help! Here are 8 unique ways to store things in the bedroom.
1. Organization Pegged
By utilizing pegboards and hooks you can transform your bedroom closet into the ultimate in versatile organization. Starting with a bare closet, affix the pegboards to the walls, hang shelves, closet rods and other stationary devices using screws or nails. Now you are ready to attach hooks anywhere you like to hang ties, scarves, purses, hats, and more. Don't like the layout you started with? Just take down the hooks and move them.
2. Head Smart
Line up a couple of bookshelves at the head of the bed and you've just gained an abundance of storage space. Don't use it just for books, place baskets on the shelves and hide necessities inside that normally add clutter a shelf.
3. Jewelry As Wall Art
Women love their jewelry and proudly display it draped around their neck or dangling from their ears. Don't stop there though: Rather than tossing your jewelry in a drawer, organize it in an artful display that doubles as bedroom decor. Attach mesh across the back of an old wooden picture frame, add a couple of small hooks to the front, use a ribbon for hanging and hook your earrings through the mesh while hanging necklaces from the hooks. Another option is a vintage wall cabinet like those used for storing kitchen gadgets. Paint the cabinet, add hooks to the inside, and place jars inside for ring storage. Instant room decor that doubles as storage! Here are some additional jewelry storage ideas to inspire you.
4. Destination Storage
Whether you have a couple of vintage suitcases on hand or you venture out to a thrift store, these items make a wonderful display stacked at the foot of a bed. Store throws, winter clothes, or seasonal decor in the luggage to keep them out of sight, but close at hand.
5. Roll It Under
Do you have a defunct dresser, but the drawers are still in good shape? Attach wheels to the bottom of the drawers and slide them under the bed. The wheels help the drawers slide out easily and the drawers give you additional storage in an often-unused space. If the space under your bed is too short for storage containers, consider raising your bed. According to Ronique Gibson from Decoist, "loft beds can accommodate desks and furniture below, while bed lifts are ideal for college students and apartment dwellers. These options will lift your bed higher to accommodate baskets, taller drawers or even plastic organizer bins." Need some additional inspiration? Here are some more creative under bed storage ideas.
6. Divide The Drawers
Our dresser drawers can get out of hand. The sock drawer especially seems to show the most chaos as items get shifted and jumbled. Use drawer dividers to make this space sensible. Keep in mind that wooden dividers may snag clothing, so opt for smooth plastic or clear acrylic dividers for delicate fabrics.
7. Just In The Nook Of Time
Do you have an odd nook in your bedroom and its purpose confuses you? Turn it into a storage spot! At the entrance of the nook, install a high shelf by mounting it at the sides. Just underneath the shelf, hang a curtain from a tension rod. Voila! You have just turned the nook into a hidden storage area. Add a closet rod and you now have more room for hanging your newest fashion finds.
8. I'm Dreaming Of A Bright Closet
Christmas lights aren't just for holiday decorating anymore. Strategically placing rope lights in a bedroom closet can help shed light on dark areas. Does your closet have plenty of light from above, but when you get the floor you can't tell your black shoes from the brown ones? Attach rope lighting to the bottom of shelves, along the inside of the door frame, or along the baseboard to get light into the spots you need it most.
