How to Best Utilise Your Bedroom Space

Sponsored Post¦ In my opinion, bedrooms are one of the most important rooms in the house when it comes to decorating. They need to be a space you love where you can just relax and unwind at the end of a busy day. That’s why it was the first room we decorated when we bought our first house together! Whether your issue with bedroom space is having a small bedroom or you have awkward sloped ceilings, there is a solution. All you need is a little creativity to make the most of your bedroom space and achieve the bedroom of your dreams.

Make use of alcoves

If you have a chimney breast, put the headboard of your bed against it. Then use the alcoves either side for storage. You can put shelves there as well as bedroom storage for a sleek and modern look. It also makes the best use of the space and minimises the furniture you need to place elsewhere in the room.

Hide the bed

Bed built into wall? If it isn’t already, you should definitely consider it! Having the bed built into the wall gives you lots of room during the day, then you can just fold it down when you need to use it. It’s particularly good for small rooms or if you need to use the room for multiple purposes, perhaps for an office when you’re working from home. I always wanted one as a child – and even as an adult I think they’re pretty awesome!

Use the space underneath the bed

If you’re sticking to a normal bed, make sure you use the space underneath it. Beds take up a lot of space, but that also means there’s a lot of space for storing things as long as you don’t have a futon! Either buy a divan bed, or buy drawers or storage boxes for underneath.

Get an ottoman

I love ottomans, as they provide seating as well as being fantastic for storing things! Putting one at the end of the bed looks so chic and really gives the room a luxurious feel.

Utilise wall space

Don’t forget that you can use your walls to give yourself more space! Hang shelves and consider a coat rack! These don’t need to be boring and utilitarian; you could make these different colours or use box shelves if that’s your style.

Invest in a built in wardrobe

Clutter is a no-no for a relaxing space, so make sure you have enough storage room for all your things. Fitted bedroom furniture like the beautiful designs at are a gorgeous way to give yourself all the storage you need. They can utilise annoying sloped ceilings so that valuable space isn’t wasted! If there’s not much floor space, sliding doors would work well for your room.

Use illusions

There are of course things you can do to make the space feel bigger! During the day, don’t block out the windows. A good source of natural light always makes a room feel bigger. Dark flooring makes a room feel smaller, so opt for light coloured flooring. Mirrors can also give the illusion of more space as they bounce light around the room!
