How to make the most of storage in a small room
If you live in a room that seems to be the size of a shoebox, it’s likely that you’ll have experienced difficulties with storage. There’s no need to compromise on style though when it comes to finding a home for all your belongings. Here are some top tips for making the most of storage in a small room.
Declutter every season
We all have items of clothing that we’ll never wear, books that we’ll never read and other items that seemed like a bargain at the time of purchase but have never seen the light of day since. When you live in a small space, it’s important to have regular clear-outs to get rid of things that you just don’t need. This will free up a lot of spare storage space. Drop off the things you don’t need at your local charity shop for someone else to appreciate.
Turn storage solutions into features
Once you’ve filled your room with essentials such as a bed, wardrobes and shelving, it can seem like there’s no space left for unique pieces that add a bit of personality to your living space. If you’re experiencing this problem, why not turn your storage into features in their own right? Creating a wall of boxed shelves will give you masses of extra storage space, and will also allow you to display some of your favourite treasures. Similarly, a book shelf that reaches up to the ceiling will be a great talking point whilst also providing you will plenty of storage.
Choose stylish storage options
Once you’ve ticked off the big items such as wardrobes and shelving, it can be tempting to settle for spare cardboard boxes to store the rest of your belongings. There are many beautiful items available on the market that will add a touch of style to your room whilst also acting as storage. Keep your eyes open for boxes in colours that compliment your room. Many can fold away when not in use, making them useful as well as decorative. Linens Direct UK has a wide range of suitable solutions available to order online.
Sorting out storage in small rooms needn’t cause you too many problems. By choosing the right furniture and taking advantage of the available space, you should find that you have plenty of space for storing your belongings.
