How to Maximize Small Bedroom Space

It's not easy to make a small bedroom feel bigger - especially when there are knick-knacks, assorted pieces of furniture, and discarded clothes taking up valuable floor space! But the good news is, it’s definitely possible.

Here are five simple steps to help you make the most of the space your small bedroom has to offer:


1. Downsize Your Bed

Small bedrooms should be furnished with the right sized bed. While extremely comfortable, king-sized beds are a no-no in small bedrooms, since they will inevitably take up the entirety of the room.

To make your bedroom seem larger, and to give yourself some space, it’s best to compromise and go with a queen, double or even a twin that will leave some room to spare.

How to choose the right sized bed

Choosing the proper size bed for a room can be a challenging task. It’s important to take into consideration the following factors to ensure you’ve selected the right one to enhance your bedroom.


  • The size of your bedroom
  • What other furniture you have in the room (nightstand, dresser, computer desk etc)
  • Bedroom layout
  • The amount of floor space you have


2. Get Rid of Large Furniture

Large pieces of bedroom furniture such as armoires and bulky dressers can take up too much space. If they are overtaking your small space, consider replacing them with pieces that will better fit the size of the room.

You may even want to consider using storage solutions instead that will both free up floor space and provide extra storage.

This includes:

  • Underbed storage
  • Choosing a bedside table that has drawers or shelves
  • Surrounding your headboard with in-built shelves
  • Creating a quirky home for your accessories including a hollowed-out book or painted bowl


3. Optimize Closet Space

Closets are essential for holding clothing, shoes and other pieces that have nowhere else to go in your small bedroom. Remember: the more items you can fit in your closet, the less you’ll scatter in hasty piles around the floor.

CLOSET STORAGE SPACE: One of the best ways to simplify storage and provide a proper place for your belongings is by installing closet organizers. They have many benefits, including the fact they:

  • can be customized to suit your specific wardrobe and storage needs.
  • save you time and make finding what you need much easier.
  • make the most of unused space in your closet, helping you become more organized.
  • give you easy access to everything in your closet.
  • free up the floor and shelf space in your bedroom for a cleaner, clutter-free zone.


4. Use Double Duty Furniture

When you have a small bedroom, you have to get creative with your furniture and home accessories! Everything can double up as extra storage if you let it. For example, use small storage cabinets instead of a table, or a floating drawer instead of just a shelf - even your nightstand can be used for storage.


5. Maximize Space Under the Bed

One of the smartest ways of adding a whole area of storage to your bedroom is by utilizing the space under your bed. This can be done by:

  • buying a new storage bed
  • creating a DIY under-the-bed storage solution
  • raising your current bed and adding storage containers

Under-the-bed storage tip: If you are worried about the containers showing from under your bed, consider investing in a bed-skirt that can hide them from view.


6. Use the Walls

Take advantage of the wall space you have in your bedroom. While you shouldn’t cover every inch of free space, try to expand your organizational opportunities using:

  • a hanging shelf
  • open and closed shelving units
  • mirror hangers and hooks for jewelry organizers to free up valuable floor and surface space

Bedroom storage tip: For even more storage space, consider hanging high shelves that run the entire length of your room. You won’t lose any floor real estate and you’ll gain an incredible amount of storage space.
