Small Bedroom? Tips for how to Maximize Storage

Small Bedroom How To Maximize Storage

Small bedrooms are cramped for storage if not expertly planned. If skillfully envisioned and executed, small bedrooms can also turn from a claustrophobic feeling to a cozy, safe space. If you’re thinking about home renovations in Red Deer, Handyman Connection can help you plan the best ways to add storage to your bedroom while optimizing what you already have. 


Your closet is probably to scale with your small bedroom. It’s okay; we can work with that. If you are a homeowner trying to add space to an impossibly small bedroom and closet, you have to maximize the area that you do have. Adding built-in shelving that allows for additional height for storage boxes will help put away seasonal wear that you may not need the whole year round. Custom shelving can also be an excellent option for shoebox-sized plastic storage solutions; they stack and are often see-through, making for easier access. 

If you do not own your home, things can be a little trickier. We recommend that you still use every bit of space that you can. Hanging rods and standing zip wardrobes can be added to closet spaces providing more storage. The exact plastic storage solutions can be stacked and stored even without shelving. Longer plastic storage bins can fit under hanging clothes neatly.


Unclutter your area. Choose nightstands and other bedroom accent furniture that will work for your small space. If you need a nightstand, search for those with additional drawers and chargers in one. Having bedroom furniture with drawers attached can pack away smaller items like socks or undergarments. Utilizing the furniture you need that includes a space-saving purpose will make it less likely that you trip over anything unnecessary crammed into the room.


To provide ideal storage space, dressers can be large and heavy. Getting a tall and wide dresser that complements your interior design and satisfies your storage needs may actually end up saving space, despite being such a large piece of furniture. Consult professional movers or Handyman Connection on quotes for placement and additional storage solutions in Red Deer. 

Once you decide on a dresser, be sure that you put your organization skills to work. Folding, rolling, and stacking in the neatest and most precise way will leave more room for additional storage. You can even vacuum-seal seasonal clothes and store them under more frequently used clothing, saving space and providing ease of convenience. Drawer separators can also be helpful when organizing short sleeve or long sleeve and pyjama pants or pyjama shorts, for example. Organizers ensure that you know where to look and what you’re grabbing every time without ruffling through the whole drawer.


There are two easy ways to add storage under the bed and to add storage behind the bed. 

1. Under 

Under-the-bed storage can be accomplished by both purchasing or creating storage measures under the bed. Storage solutions come in the form of actual bed frames with drawers underneath or in structures that are higher than average, allowing for more slide-under storage. 

2. Built-in 

Built-in headboards are custom shelving that beds back up to. There may even be storage behind the bed that is not visible, providing more space for less appealing items. Storage may also be hidden behind cabinetry or in the open on shelving.

No bedroom is too small to add clever storage. Repurposing areas that otherwise provide little to no function can help you utilize every inch of the limited space you have. Organization and smart decision-making when choosing furniture can ensure form and function in the bedroom. Handyman Connection in Red Deer specializes in custom home renovations to meet your storage and space needs.
