Is your student room running out of space?
Follow these top tips!
1 Keep seasonal clothes stored in a suitcase so that they don’t take up valuable space – you don’t need to be rifling through shorts and flip-flops in the middle of January! If there isn’t room to hide it away, go for chic vintage suitcases and stack them in the corner.
2 Get inventive with your organisers to keep all the little bits and bobs in your room in order. Bedside storage sets slide under your mattress with pockets to store your charger, reading glasses and all the things that usually clog up your bedside table.
3 Invest in a bed with a large storage area that is revealed when you lift the mattress. These modern designs are amazing space savers and are the perfect place for storing your books.
4 One wardrobe is never enough so take inspiration from Pinterest for ways to store and hang your clothes. There are clever tips like adding shower hooks to a hanger to store your scarves, attaching a can ring pull to your coat hanger so you can double up and folding your t-shirts vertically in a drawer to fit more in. Evenmore, putting stacking shelves inside a wardrobe maximises space and finds room for your shoes!
5 Creating a study box for your desk is a great way to store your belongings so you can get cracking on your uni work! Take inspiration from this ‘office in a box’ blog.
6 If you’re buying a side table to go next to your bed then make sure you choose a design with drawers. Go for a tall design so that you can utilise the space underneath with plastic storage boxes for extra shelving.
7 Over the door storage is a genius use of space. Add hangers to the back of the door to hang coats and dressing gowns, or buy a rack with different compartments to hold everything from jewellery to a hair dryer.
8 Storage stools are a neat addition to your bedroom as they add extra seating as well as more storage. There are lots of different designs available so you will be able to find one to match your decor.
9 For those of you who have way too many shoes you will know that they are a pain to store! If you have the space, go for a bookshelf for a surprisingly efficient way to stack your shoes. If you’re really limited, then go high. Place clothes rails on the walls or at the top of your wardrobe so that you can hook your heels over them.
10 Cork boards are a unique idea for wall storage and can be easily hung above your desk. They make easy jewellery organisers and are great for hanging important letters and reminders so they don’t get lost.
