Space-saving ideas for small bedrooms

Poor storage space is a big problem for many Brits and especially affects those with small bedrooms. Once the bed is in, the room you have may leave a lot to be desired – and you crying out for space-saving ideas. This is vital for small bedrooms as they may lack proper storage facilities, which can even impact mental health negatively.

Fortunately, we know a thing or two about how to maximise potential space, so you can live a clutter-free life without bulky furniture invading your room. Explore our favourite space-saving ideas for small bedrooms to enjoy a refined, stylish area with all the storage potential you've been looking for.


Utilise your bed 

A smart and easy way to utilise your bedroom space is to take advantage of under-bed storage. Many beds now come with built-in drawers, but you can also use various boxes and baskets to conceal your belongings if yours doesn't.

You can get the ultimate bed storage solution with an ottoman design. These let you utilise your under-bed space as you lift the frame beneath the mattress to reveal a huge storage compartment. This is perfect for items like spare bedding or shoes.


Sliding wardrobes 

Hinged doors can take up a lot more space than you think but there is an alternative solution that lets you have the precious wardrobe space you want. Invest in a sliding wardrobe as a sleek, modern alternative for an easy-to-use storage option that maximises floor in small bedrooms.

Choosing bespoke sliding wardrobes from Hammonds lets you customise the interior to your needs, so you can make the most of your storage. We can create options with specialised storage for shoes and other belongings.


Functional side tables 

With little space available, it may be difficult to include two side tables. Instead, you'll need to get creative to make the most of the small bedroom. Try using a dresser as your side table, so it can act as a place for your everyday essentials while providing additional space for your belongings.


Headboard shelving 

Headboards with built-in shelving are an excellent storage solution and allow you to add a unique design.

Not only are these headboard designs practical, but they’re incredibly stylish and contemporary too. Place your prized possessions on the shelving for easy access and put up framed pictures to make the room feel like home.


Floating furniture 

Walls can easily go unused but offer much more potential space than your floor. When you only have a small room at your disposal, floating furniture will be your best friend.

Floating furniture will create so much space in your room and there are plenty of different options. Whether that’s a floating side table, bookcase or desk, it’s a great alternative to pushing a large, bulky piece of furniture against your wall. Floating shelves provide a chic solution and can be 'stacked' on top of each other to provide extra space.
