Isn’t it about time you looked at storage beds? If your New Year’s resolution is to clean and organize your living space, you are not alone. According to a recent LA Fitness survey, redecorating and organizing are two of the top 10 resolutions for 2013. And opting to purchase beds with storage space presents the perfect way to achieve both resolutions!
While you can find many articles on organizing home office, kitchen, and pantry areas, you probably won’t find much information on organizing your bedroom.
Your bedroom is not meant to be just a quiet resting place, it often has to serve another purpose: as a storage space for your clothes, accessories, shoes, bedding, and more. Figuring out how to store all those belongings while still maintaining a stylish and relaxing environment can be challenging.
Let’s start with the bed. It takes up a lot of space in the room, so why not allow it to be as functional as it is comfortable? Storage beds provide the ideal solution to add more space to store your belongings while providing a cozy place to sleep. You can choose to buy a bed that includes pull-out drawers or an ottoman that actually lifts off the base to reveal metal storage boxes in the frame.
But what about the rest of the bedroom? If you have a lot of jewelry, you may want to repurpose old window shades by painting the frame a bright color and using it to hang your earrings and necklaces on small S-hooks attached to the shade. Wall-hung kitchen drawer utensil organizers and hidden ice cube trays in a dresser drawer are also great ways to store your jewelry.
A tension rod in the bathroom could be the perfect way to add extra space for hanging clothes. A repainted wooden or ceramic planter placed on the table next to those storage beds can hold magazines, lotions, or other items you want to keep on hand.
When it comes to storing those items in the drawers or boxes on storage beds, use sturdy cloth bags and put descriptive labels on the handles to indicate which items are stored in each. That takes organization to a whole new level!
If you have decided to organize the space in your home this year, start with the bedroom and opt for beds with storage to gain as much space as possible.
