Our bedrooms are supposed to be a sanctuary from society, but they can often become cluttered. To protect your bedroom from clutter, you must take the proper storage steps. These nine key storage tips can free up your bedroom, and make it easy to access your stuff when you need it.

Pictures on your shoeboxes


If you have significant shelf space, but limited shoe storage, you can save your shoe boxes and place them on the shelves. To make the shoes easy to access, take a picture of each pair of shoes, and place the picture on the front of the shoebox.

Get a console table for your bed

Many bedrooms are simply too small for a desk. A console table can serve as a shelf at night, but it can be pulled forward to serve as desk space when you need it.

Get risers for your bed

This is an old dorm room trick but it can easily be adapted to your bedroom. Slip store-bought risers (or even wide bricks) under your bed for added height. By putting your bed on risers, you will change your perspective on the room and add valuable under-the-bed storage.

Consider skipping the headboard


Headboards are nice, but in a cramped room they can take up too much space. Skipping the headboard, or even mounting your headboard to the wall can add valuable space to your bedroom oasis.

Be sure to check out the Design-A-Bed page on the Brosa site.

Optimize your closet storage space

Brosa Organize your closet space

The more efficiently you use your closet or walk-in-robe storage, the less space your belongings will take up in your bedroom. Check your closet for unnecessary dead space.

Look up

Brosa add storage space on the walls

You may think of your home in terms of just square footage, but the walls of your bedroom are an asset. Consider putting up higher shelves or getting a large bookcase. Thinking vertically can save you valuable space.

Reorganize your drawers

Every drawer is an asset for storing your goods. Check your drawers to ensure that they are well organized. This includes properly folding all your clothes and making sure each drawer serves a specific purpose. Every six months, you should check your drawers to ensure they are serving their intended purpose.

Perform a wardrobe cleanse

Everyone has clothes they never wear but few people take the time to clean out their wardrobe. Once a year, take time to clean your closet of clothes you are no longer wearing. You can give these clothes to charity and add space to your bedroom.

Find the right nightstand for you


If you only keep a few objects near you while you are in bed, then a basic nightstand will do, but if you need a significant amount of storage, then you might want a drawer. The wrong nightstand will let clutter pile up around your bed, making you look really disorganized.

Getting the bedroom you deserve is not difficult, but it requires you to follow the right organizational steps. By following these tips, you can keep your bedroom organized and extremely functional.
