Now when we are talking about creating a beautiful space, you wouldn’t think that storage would be part of the story, but the fact is having ample storage translates to being able to keep your space clean and organised. And it is much easier to create a beautiful space when the evidences of real life are out of sight.
Bedrooms are often considered a ‘sanctuary’ or ‘romantic,’ ‘a space away from the everyday’ (I can hear all the parents of young children laughing now….), but the truth is a bedroom is also a practical space. We get dressed here, we dump our bags, jackets and shoes here. There are often family meetings and conferences here and as much as we love the idea of a private personal space, sometimes real life just gets in the way. The idea of ample and well planned out storage means we get to hide a bit of that real life behind closed doors. Keeping a space visually free of clutter and mess is an important element to creating a relaxing, calming and beautiful space.
Some easy ways to improve the storage in your bedroom;
Custom designed cabinetry; not only looks good but a well-designed robe will double the amount of storage. Consideration is given to shoe storage, maximising hanging storage and using draws to sort and separate.
Beds with storage; consider a gas lift bed or a bed with storage draws built into base. Not only do they look great with a large range of Bedheads, colours and styles, but you also get so much, easy to access space under the bed.
Beautiful baskets; if you can’t hide your storage then flaunt it! There are so many beautiful baskets that can be used for hiding scarves, bags, extra clothes or personal items. Check out local homewares stores such as freedom, pillow talk or IKEA. Baskets can be placed on the floor, at the end of a bed or top of wardrobes.
