Making the most of what you have; that’s what life’s all about really, isn’t it?

You might like a bedroom that stretches as far as the eye can see, but when you’re working with a more compact area, maximising your storage options with fitted bedroom furniture is the secret to creating a functional and stylish space.

Here are some smart design tricks you can use to maximise storage space in your bedroom...

1. Ottoman Bedframes

This Turkish delight is a great way to maximise your storage options without eating into your living space. Ottoman bedframes come with a hydraulic- or spring-hinged mattress frame so you can pack the area underneath with any items you want to store out of the way. There are Ottoman bedframes for single and double beds, making this an excellent storage solution for master bedrooms, kids’ bedrooms and guest rooms.

2. Maximise Storage on the Walls

Replacing bookshelves with open and closed shelving, and moving storage furniture units off the floor and onto the walls, are effective ways to maximise storage without reducing your bedroom floor space. The Flexa range also offers some great storage options for kids' bedrooms – see below.

3. Reorganise Your Existing Storage Space

It might not sound like the best way to spend an hour or three, but if you’re serious about increasing your bedroom storage space, using drawer dividers and taking the time to properly fold your clothing will free up the space you need. And, if you’re open to more extreme measures, vacuum packing your bulky out-of-season clothing is a great way to make the most of the space you have.

4. Luxor Fitted Wardrobes

Luxor fitted wardrobes, made by Wiemann, are the closest thing you’ll find to a fully fitted bedroom you can take with you when you move. There are some excellent options available to customise your bedroom and make use of every inch of potential storage space in a room. There are overhead drawer chests, dressers and overbed bridging units that can be bought piece-by-piece or as a complete range.

5. Create Additional Attic Access

Attics are perfect storage spaces that are so often underused. Attics can be difficult to access, but installing a hinged door with a drop-down ladder in one of your bedrooms can help you tap into this hidden resource.

6. Install Hidden Shelves

If you’re still in need of more bedroom storage space, you could always build shelves behind your bed to store books, night lights and other items. Hanging decorative curtains in front of the shelves can help to keep the clutter out of sight and out of mind.
