Storage Solutions for the Bedroom in a Small Home

I am always looking for storage solutions for the bedroom. We live in an 1865 farmhouse and for the most part, I really love our home. One thing we are always lacking is storage space. We never seem to have enough room for storing linens or off season clothes because our closet space is almost non-existent. This post contains affiliate links, and I will receive compensation if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

Of course, the first step to any organization project is decluttering. It makes no sense to store clothes that you no longer fit into or that are out of style. I’ve written about decluttering quite a few times as we worked to eliminate possessions we no longer need. Because we have a small home, we still find ourselves in need of a few storage solutions for the bedroom.

We’ve been considering what our options are for having more storage in the bedroom. I don’t really like the idea of plastic tubs piled in the closet. That just makes everything cramped and crowded. It’s really more of an issue in the kids’ bedrooms since they have moved back home.  What worked well for them as small children, doesn’t work well now as adults with significant others. Here are a few clever storage ideas for small bedrooms.

Under Bed Drawers

We considered investing in new furniture with built-in storage options. Our current bedroom furniture is rather dated but it’s not old enough to be considered vintage or antique.  I think bedroom storage furniture would work quite well. However, the kids won’t be here permanently and I’ll have no need for that much storage once they are on their own again. Under bed drawers are a great option because they can be moved around as needed.

Clothes Cubes

Clothes cubes can be added to a top shelf in the closet or placed on an existing bookshelf. They are ideal for storing things like socks, scarves, lingerie, and sheets. They can be repurposed in other rooms to hold children’s toys, DVDs, video games or craft supplies.

Wonder Hangar

If you simply need more room in your closet to hang clothes, you may want to invest in a Wonder Hanger. I was amazed at how much extra room I had in my closet using this. Another simple option is a hanging rack on the wall that can be used for sweatshirts, scarves, and bags.

Vanity Cart

If you have a problem organizing perfume, cosmetics, jewelry and other small items, a vanity cart may be the perfect option. You can roll the cart where you need it when you’re applying your makeup, then roll it back into the closet or a corner of the room after you’re done. It’s very easy to use a Raskog for this purpose and they are a very high quality.

What kind of storage solutions do you use in your bedroom to handle all the linens and out of season clothes?   Anyone else lacking in storage space like me?
