Condo dwellers choose a condominium for a variety of reasons, be it the small price tag, the close proximity to the city and work, and the convenient amenities offered on site. But if the thought of where to store all your bedroom artifacts leaves you blank, here are some ideas on how to arrange your bedroom to allow for ample storage.
- Use a Floating Night Stand
If your bedroom is too small to allow any room for a nightstand beside your bed, there are still options for you to house your reading lamp and alarm clock. Simply adhere a floating shelf on the wall next to your bed. Doing so will not take up any floor space, it will give you plenty of space for additional things such as books and picture frames as well.
- Keep Your Jewelry on Display
If you don’t have any room for a large jewelry box to store all your gold, silver or costume jewelry, consider putting it all on display instead. There are plenty of decorative and creative jewelry stands available at a number of price points to allow you to both house your jewels as well as create a focal point of decor at the same time.
- Use Your Headboard For Storage
The possibilities really are endless when it comes to brainstorming storage ideas. Even your bed’s headboard can be used as storage to some degree! For example, a padded headboard can come with a lift panel that allows you to place anything from books to sheets to kleenex when not in use. If you can’t seem to find one in any furniture stores, you might want to consider making this a DIY assignment and see what type of handy work you are truly capable of! Of course, you can always enlist the help of a handy friend when the going gets tough.
- Use Corner Spaces Wisely
When you live in a small space like a condo, you really need to make every square inch of the space works for you. For example, don’t let corners go unnoticed. For example, consider building custom furniture, such as a bench or a table, that fit perfectly into a specific corner of your room. Doing so will not only add some extra storage space, but it will also add some creative flair to an otherwise empty space.
- Get Yourself a Freestanding Closet Wardrobe System
If you were not blessed with a built-in closet storage space in your bedroom, consider buying (or building) a freestanding closet system if the space permits. You can easily find one of these handy storage units in a number of furniture stores. These types of systems usually come with a variety of storage compartments, making organization and storage a cinch.
There are plenty of ways to get around limited storage space in your condo. If you can’t seem to come with any ideas on your own, an experienced condo designer would be happy to give you some pointers. Find a local condo interior designer in your area and get them to help you transform your condo into a fully functional space, despite the limited square footage.
