Some of us are blessed with amazing, cosy homes but some of us are pulled the short stick when it comes to bedroom size. Whether your master bedroom is small or you just want to create more space, there are definitely ways to make everyone’s bedroom space look and feel bigger.
Nowadays anything is possible, so no matter how small and cosy your bedroom is – if you want to maximise as much space as possible – there are many solutions out there!
Bedrooms are one of the most important rooms in your home therefore it’s important to consider everything a bedroom needs – a comfortable bed, drawer space, a wardrobe, possible armchairs to contribute to the cosy atmosphere and most importantly a space for everything you want to store in there.
One of the main problems a lot of bedrooms have is clutter. It seems that even the room that’s supposed to be your sanctuary can’t escape the mess of everyday life. You’d think its common sense but too many people try to fit too many things inside their bedroom!
So before you decorate your bedroom it’s important to try to get rid of anything you don’t use – this includes the excess use of nick knack collections, clothes that you have but never wear and any other home accessories you can’t bring yourself to throw out.
Next you need to pay attention to the furniture you select – you don’t want to get bigger bulkier furniture for a small bedroom – you need furniture that’s going to fit well in the rest of your room. Fortunately Shelfstore are one step ahead of you and have the perfect furniture solution that will allow you to keep as much space in the room as possible…
With Shelfstore you can create lots of space for your clothes, blankets, magazines and books. Both over the bed using a bridging beam fitting and below the bed using low sections. Making use of the space above and below your bed is a great way to make use of the space that is already being used. It is also a great way to hide away all that ‘stuff’ we all accumulate. We also provide wardrobes in dozens of sizes, with as many drawers as you could possibly need, endless cupboards, bedside cabinets and shelves… all brought together to work in your individual bedroom. So depending on what you need to store, you really are spoilt for choice.
Once you’ve selected those pieces of furniture you need – it’s then important to make sure you place the furniture correctly within your bedroom. You’ll need to be clever in creating an illusion of more foot room. Firstly we’d suggest trying not to sit your bed in the centre of the room – put it alongside a large wall space. Secondly – don’t caddy corner your dresser or desks, place the larger pieces of furniture up against the walls too. This will create a bigger space in the centre of the room.
Just because your room is small, it doesn’t mean that you must have small furniture within it. Large furniture can work just as well – and sometimes even better – depending on its layout and design.
