How to Maximize Storage Space in Your Bedroom
Are you a student living the dorm room life? Do you have a small space with a lot of clutter because you don’t have much space to store anything? It’s a real struggle when you want to keep your space decluttered and organized but the size of your living space is preventing you from doing so. Sometimes you just have to make do with what you have and work with it. We at XYZ Storage understand that struggle, so we came up with a couple of ways that you can maximize the storage space in your bedroom that may ease your storage problems.
1) The Space Under Your Bed
For those of you in a dorm room or a small-sized bedroom, your bed probably takes up the majority of your room. Does your bed have room underneath to store your belongings and organize them with storage bins or containers? If not, has the thought ever crossed your mind about elevating your bed to make use of the floor space underneath it? This is a smart idea especially for those living in a dorm room. You can place any clothes that won’t fit in your closet, extra pillows and blankets, bathroom essentials, and even your school books. If elevating your bed is not an option and you are purchasing a new bed, consider purchasing a bed with tonnes of storage. This way you’re maximizing the floor space in your room.
2) Purchase Storage Containers
The first thing you should do when you’re about to move into a small living space or already live in one is to purchase storage containers. Storage containers can be anything from the foldable ones to the plastic ones. You can never have too many storage containers! Another tip is to think about stacking them vertically as opposed to side by side. Most of the time we make the mistake of placing things side by side, but it may be a good idea to take advantage of all that extra space from the floor to the ceiling. By doing this it will leave you with a lot more walking room and you’ll have less clutter all over the place.
3) Roll Your Clothes
Are you a sucker for buying the trendiest and latest clothes? Do you have drawers and closets filled with clothes you barely wear but refuse to throw away? If you just simply have too many clothes, a perfect way to make space in your drawers is to roll your clothes! Most of us are used to folding our clothes as we put them away after doing laundry. One of the best ways to save space when it comes to storing our clothes is to roll them. You should try it! Trust me it’ll save you plenty of space and who knows it might make a huge difference in your life.
4) Make Your “Junk Closet” Useful
Our closets are usually the space we dedicate to use to store our belongings that we don’t want to leave out in the open. To get you started, head to the store and purchase a bunch of hangers, storage containers, or even a shoe hanger for the door. These essentials will help you get started with organizing everything including your clothes and possibly extra papers you threw in there.
5) Take Advantage of Empty Wall Space
Want to decorate your room but have limited space to place your décor? The walls are a perfect opportunity for you to decorate and possibly brighten up that dark dorm room or tiny living space you have. Thinking about placing pictures of your friends and family around your room? Hang your photos on a piece of string across your bedroom or in picture frames on the wall. Need some greenery in your bedroom? You can actually purchase plants that can hang on your wall! There are plenty of ways to decorate your room using your wall space, you just need to get creative and have a little fun. However, if you are looking for more ways to store your belongings you can purchase hangers/hooks for your hats, jackets, and sweaters. You can also place a shelf above your bed for your books or any of your other belongings.
Self-storage or Mobile Storage
Sometimes you can only maximize the amount of storage space in your room by so much. If you still need more storage space to store your belongings think about self-storage or even mobile storage solutions. At XYZ Storage, we offer both which means you can store your belongings at one of our secure facilities around Toronto and the GTA or keep it at your property with our mobile storage solution. Our mobile storage option provides you with an easy and seamless storage experience.
We know your life is big and we are here to help you make space for it. We’ll provide a safe home for your belongings so that you can continue living your life without making any compromises or sacrifices.
