Clever storage 101 – there is not a monster under your bed, just space to utilize as concealed storage! IKEA is known for it’s inventive solutions to brilliant storage solutions. When faced with a challenging space, a too small bedroom or tight floor plan, think about all of the areas that are empty and think of them as an opportunity. Under the bed, behind the door, along the walls and above your furniture.
The savvy headboard behind this storage-minded bed has space for shelving. This is perfect for placing a picture frame, phone charger, book, or hand lotion. The shelves also appear to be adjustable. This means that if you get a different bed down the road the shelves can adjust to a different height! Not every storage solution in a small space has to match. Frosted black storage options in the corner work with the wooden storage solutions near the bed instead of competing with one another.
In a modern bedroom, small spaces are often optimized by adding mirrors. There is less room for furniture in modern design, like in this space that replaced bulky night stands with stacks of books, so keep the lines clean by adding a reflective surface such as a floor length mirror which instantly helps to add dimension to the room.
Another trick in this room to make it look larger is the use of the color white. There is a lot of white in the bed linens and each art print placed above the bed has a stark white background. Instead of adding a bed that has a large platform or bulky dressers, this room focuses on the wide space and makes the most of it. A walk-in closet also helps the room keep from being cluttered.
