Bedroom Storage

You all know how much I love light and beautiful bedrooms. Today I wanted to share with you what I think can be a tough obstacle for a bedroom – storage space.

I feel like every time I move, the amount of possessions I have to find space for doubles.  It’s important to me that I have a way to tuck some of these things away and hide them so my bedroom can stay clean and serene.

If you’re like me, and can’t afford built-ins, a clever way to “fake” it is to find a piece of furniture that can mimic a built in.  The white credenza in this room sits under the window and is white, just like a built in would be if it existed in this room.

You can also find a lot of storage solutions that double as decor, like old trunks.

One space you never want lacking in storage is the closet! I love built in style closets because they feel so luxe and it makes it really easy to store and find items. Not having enough storage space in a closet results in random boxes on the floor or above where you can’t reach them or end up not using the contents because it’s such a pain to get to them!

When everything has a spot your less likely to keep things you don’t need and it’s going to save so much time in your day not having to “find” all those missing things!

Keep it simple – sometimes, all you need is a few beautiful baskets to create the storage you need.  A guest room may only need a few extra pillows and blankets and baskets can be a beautiful and functional way to fill that need.

Another options is to a bed with built in storage in it! Something like a double storage bed is a great option if you are having trouble finding space to create storage in your room or you just need that extra space. 

The built in storage under the bed gives it a more flush and clean look – I personally don’t like to put things under the bed, so it’s a great option if you are like me.. There are plenty of different styles of double storage beds that you can choose from. Some have a similar look to multiple drawers or cubbies you can put fabric bins like under the window seat.
The most important factor is not only that the storage is functional, but that you like it, so sometimes it takes a bit of hunting to find a storage solution you like. You want your bedroom to be relaxing and clutter is the last thing that’s going to achieve that! Find a storage solution that doesn’t distract your eye or take away from much needed rest!
