Storage Ideas for Small Rooms

Storage Ideas for a Small Bedroom, Bath & More

  • Use the space under your bed to hide away out-of-season clothing and extra bedding. If you don't like the idea of under-bed storage boxes, you can always cover them up with a bed skirt. 
  • Maximize your closet space with closet organizers, bins and shelving. A well-organized closet will keep the clutter out of eyesight and neatly stored away. 
  • Use a nightstand that has extra storage to hold anything you don't want on display. Instead of buying a nightstand with a single shelf, try finding a nightstand with a cabinet or drawers. 
  • If you need a storage solution for a small bedroom, invest in a storage bed. They offer just as much storage as a dresser, eliminating the need for a dresser in the room. They also collect fewer dust bunnies and allergens beneath them then the average dresser.

  • Use the space above your toilet to hold items such as toilet paper, cotton balls and cotton swabs. You can use shelves for a more open look or an over-the-toilet cabinet to keep everything hidden away. 
  • Add a shelf above the bathroom door to store any bathroom items you don't use often. The space above your door is the perfect place for toilet paper and extra hand towels. And it is so out of the way your guests probably won't even notice it is there.

Living Room

  • Go vertical with your storage options. When you don't have a lot of space on the floor, vertical storage can make all the difference. For extra storage, use tall pieces of furniture such as bookshelves and cabinets to draw the eyes up toward the ceiling, not down toward the crowded floor. 
  • Coffee tables with built in storage, such as extra shelves or drawers, serve a dual purpose when it comes to keeping your living room organized. Place a few books and candles on top for decoration, then use the extra space to store items such as magazines, remote controls and matches.
