Bed Storage Ideas

Keep your cramped closet available for the clothes you wear most often. How? By stowing out-of-season clothing and accessories below your bed in acrylic or canvas storage bins, rolling carts, zippered storage bags, or boxes on wheels. Choose models with reinforced handles to make them easy to grab and pull clear. If needed, add several more inches of storage space by putting your bed on risers.

Storage beds are one of the most obvious storage hacks for small bedrooms, but they’re also among the best. While every kind of space-saving bed will open up space in your bedroom, storage beds can give you as many drawers as a dresser.

Functional Focal Point Framing a bed with built-in storage not only provides a place to store odd items, but it gives the eye a place to land. “This was an older home where the space had become convoluted over the years with lots of add-ons,” says designer Connie Gustafson. “We eliminated some closets and opened up the space to make a nice master suite. We designed this shelving specifically so the bed could fit right in.” The simple architectural details on the built-ins match the character of the home, and drapery tassels on the doorknobs add a polished look.

A king-size bed eats up 42 square feet of space. Why should the dust bunnies have it all to themselves? “Under-bed containers can hold the shorts and tank tops you’re not wearing in January and make more room for what you are wearing,” says Kristine Becker of Closet & Storage Concepts in Voorhees, N.J. “Flipping your seasons is a great way to save space.”

Stashing the bed itself can make a tiny bedroom double as a nursery by day. Diane Selkirk of Vancouver put a Murphy bed in her daughter’s room, making the small bedroom’s storage space more versatile. “When it’s up, she has ample play space. And when down, it hides the toys.”

These desks come in all shapes, sizes, and styles. Some even have built-in storage for your office supplies. They’re a great storage solution for your bedroom, if and when you work from home. All you need is a chair, though the foot of your bed can do in a pinch.

Expect more from your nightstand. Choose a bedside table that can do more than hold a lamp and your phone. Cabinets and shelves keep books, magazines, and e-tablet within arm’s reach. Use a small bowl or plate to hold your jewelry, and baskets to corral medications and toiletries. Drawers are better at providing discreet storage than shelves, of course—even if you just want to hide chocolate from prying eyes. Tags: Storage Ideas, Small Spaces, Organization Post a comment

Get ready for guests. Smart storage solutions are twice as important when two people need to share a room. A dresser—instead of a simple nightstand—helps weekend guests keep their belongings organized and out of sight.  Tags: Storage Ideas, Small Spaces, Organization Post a comment

When I think of underbed storage, I generally think of plastic containers, or, at best, artfully organized baskets. But when you’re in need of serious storage solutions in your bedroom, you have to think outside of the box. That’s exactly what these people did. They maximized the black hole that was the space beneath their beds, said goodbye to the dust bunnies and hello to oodles of storage space for their shoes, clothes, toys – you name it.

If you’d rather not build your own platform bed or install drawers, don’t worry, you don’t have to. Simply add wheels to an old dresser drawer and push it under your bed frame. Whenever you need to access your stuff, it’s only one tug away.

Lise Lingo stores luggage, backpacks and gear bags under her bed in compartments her husband built into their bed frame —basically a box with an overhanging platform and removable panels on each side. “He even ran rope light around the inside and hooked it to a motion sensor,” she adds. “So the light comes on when you need to find a specific bag.”

If you have limited space around the bed, ditch the bedside tables in favor of a headboard with cabinets to hold lamps, books and glasses. Look for tall, narrow dressers, armoires and corner cabinets to stretch your small bedroom’s storage space. Opt for a compact entertainment center for your TV, stereo and related media, or free up floor space by wall-mounting towers for DVDs and CDs.

Dividers help keep drawers organized.

Get everything ship-shape. If a guest room or child’s bedroom is short on storage space, put in a built-in berth that doubles as a dresser. Sometimes called captain’s beds (think about the tight quarters on a ship), these double agents rest upon platforms with drawers that can be used for storing bed linens, clothing, shoes, or toys and games. Dividers help keep drawers organized. Note: This custom set-up includes a headboard with open cubbies for books and magazines, and a small shelf that’s big enough to hold a small clock. No nightstand needed!

Give antiques a job to do. If an upholstered ottoman doesn’t suit your style, use a favorite antique piece instead. Vintage blanket chests are natural choices, but steamer trunks, Civil War captain’s trunks, apothecary chests, and low sideboard buffets offer attractive alternatives. You gain valuable storage as well as the opportunity to admire your acquisition every time you enter the bedroom. Shown: A repurposed blanket chest from a small village in France sits at the foot of a guest bed; its headboard is fashioned from an old gate.
