Clothes hampers can get in the way so find one you can hang from the back of your door, keeping it out of sight (and the way). Amazon.com.au has a range of hampers on offer, all designed to be easily accessible but completely out of the way by hanging of the back of your bedroom door.
Bedside chest of drawers
A bedside table is essential but that space underneath is mostly wasted. Why not combine the need for somewhere for a lamp and a glass of water with a small chest of drawers? The space below can now be used for storage for anything from socks to stationary.
If you have the space some additional flat spaces provided by some nightstand-style shelving can help you keep items you use often such as perfume, lipstick, keys and glasses in one spot and out of the way. Use the other shelves for everyday items you want to have at hand or even a pile of books or magazines.
Storage Beds or under-bed storage drawers
Under-bed storage is a great way to maximise space. Great for shoes, extra sheets and doonas and sporting gear like tennis racquets. You can also go all out and get one of Harvey Norman’s storage beds including one to four drawer models that provide loads of extra storage.
Everyone’s dream is a walk-in wardrobe but that’s not always possible with the space you have. The ultimate goal for your bedroom fitout, however, should be some kind of built in wardrobe. They may take up a bit of space but they also allow you to organise your clutter and keep it out of view. There are loads of options as far as storage systems go and you can build a wardrobe space that suits your needs, Ikea and Bunnings have a range of solutions that are inexpensive and easy to install.
