3 Shelving Ideas For Your Bedroom In Calgary

shelving your cloffice

Your bedroom is a sacred space. You use your bedroom to recharge, unwind from the day before, and prepare for the day ahead. You can usually climb into bed and close the bedroom door behind you for at least a few moments of solace. However, tranquillity can be interrupted if you trip over piles of clothing or stacks of papers on your way to the bed. It can quickly become frustrating when you can’t find the remote or can’t reach your reading light switch because it’s in an inaccessible place. Find out how to better organize your bedroom by installing wall shelves to maximize your space and learn who to call for storage solutions in Calgary.

Add Storage with Shelving Solutions

The number of things expected to be stored in the bedroom is unfair; other rooms just seem to have less responsibility. For a joint household, all clothing is held in just one or two closets. If you have an armoire, there is likely only one that is usually shared. Between the two of you, you might also share a dresser and a desk, and then the bed takes up the rest of the room, and you’re all out of space. The only way to add more storage space without cramming in extra furniture is to build upward. Adding shelving on walls is an ideal storage solution that supports:

  • Floor Space 
  • Convenience 
  • Decor and Display

Add Shelving Over a Dresser

Before you commit to one setup over the other for your dresser, contact the professionals at Handyman Connection to learn more about home renovations in Calgary. Shelving installation is a minor addition to your home but will benefit from the basic design. Talk to experts about the best location to place your dresser to maximize space and increase utility. Shelving over a dresser can provide storage for:

  • Jewelry boxes 
  • Televisions 
  • Record players 
  • Picture frames 
  • Sound systems 
  • Clothing bins 
  • Home decor 
  • Collectibles

Add Shelving Beside the Bed

Thankfully, the advent of smart lights controlled remotely has removed some of the frustration of forgetting to turn out lights before crawling into bed. However, the technology to bring your reading glasses or the remote for the television has yet to become readily available in all households. Until then, building shelving beside the bed can provide additional storage and convenience that does not take up floor space. Many people are following the trend of installing shelving that looks like a headboard beside and behind a platform bed. Increasing storage by your bed can make critical items easy to access, such as:

  • Reading lamps 
  • Alarm clocks 
  • Charging stations 
  • Linen storage 
  • Glasses
  • Cellphones 
  • Baby Monitors 
  • Medicine

Add Shelving Above a Desk

In the wake of the revived home office, desks have taken on a whole new life. The closet office, also known as the “cloffice”, is an easily concealed home office that is shut away in a closet with built-in shelving to keep your workspace neat. If your desk is instead used for leisure browsing, determining the ideal placement in the room will help you decide what kind of shelving would best benefit the area. If you are using the desk as a vanity, be sure to talk to the experts at Handyman Connection about vanity lighting installation. Shelving above your desk can provide ample storage for:

  • Makeup 
  • Office Supplies 
  • Electronics 
  • Books 
  • Picture Frames 
  • Albums

The professionals at Handyman Connection in Calgary can help design and install shelving in your bedroom to maximize space and increase storage. No longer will you trip on clothes or a lost remote as you make your way to the bed after a long day. Contact Handyman Connection today for more information.
