Unique Storage Ideas for your Bedroom

Planning and decorating the home is undoubtedly a fun task and there are all sorts of ways you can get creative with it.

Storage is one fun area where you'll find you can think outside the square. From having a place to hang your necklaces to somewhere to neatly put your shoes, there is a whole lot of scope for storage and decoration in the bedroom

Here are some ways you can keep your bedroom storage looking beautiful. 

Trinkets in jam jars

Everybody has bits and bobs lying around their room they just don't know where to put. From seldom used lipsticks to rings, spare buttons, ribbons and hair clips to USB sticks and charger cords there are always items looking for a home.

Why not head down to your local dollar store and pick up a few jam jars, also known as mason jars, and use them for storage?

These come in varying styles and sizes so it's easy to find one that fits in with the rest of your bedroom's decor. Simply pop your items inside the jars for safekeeping and you have a stylish and practical storage area! They look particularly fantastic on chests of drawers, bookcases and mantlepieces. 

Bookshelf bed frames

Instead of a traditional headboard behind your bed, opt for a bookshelf frame surrounding the three available sides. 

Not only does this look fun and interesting, it creates plenty of storage space that would otherwise go to waste.

Use the bookshelves to store some of your belongings in baskets or decorative boxes, fold clothes, place photographs or other items such as clocks and artwork. 

Have fun experimenting with placement and colour until you stumble upon a combination you love. 

Wardrobe door hooks 

Do you need a place to hang belts, necklaces and various other bits and pieces? Look no further than the inside of your wardrobe door.

Get some easy stick-on hooks from your local supermarket, stationary or hardware store and attach them to the door.

Then you'll be able to hang all sorts of items from them, meaning you can say goodbye to the days of tangled necklaces and misshapen belts. 

Space saving furniture

Have you ever seen beds or couches that open up to conceal treasures hidden beneath?

These kinds of furniture items are readily available these days and can make your bedroom storage a whole lot easier.

Whether you stash some books away or fold your off-season clothes in the hollow of your bed, space saving furniture gives you a whole host of options. 

Alternatively, look for a bed that's raised off the ground so that decorative boxes filled with your belongings can be stored underneath.

Stationary tins

Is your desk looking a little cluttered? Are pens, paper clips and post-it notes strewn all across your work space?

In that case you might want to consider stationary tins.

You can easily make these yourself by taking empty food cans, cleaning them and decorating them with your favourite patterns and accoutrements. 

These are perfect for storing pens and all those other fiddly bits that can get lost on a desk and there are many different styling options available.

Handy hint: These tins are also a great place to store your makeup brushes! 

Shoe crates

Rather than having your shoes strewn all over the place, why not collect some old wooden crates, clean them up - maybe even paint them - and give your shoes a proper home?

Not only will this help to create a warm rustic atmosphere, it's incredibly practical and will help keep your floors scuff-free. 

Now that you have a few creative storage ideas for the bedroom, you can get to work de-cluttering your space and enjoying the style and simplicity of a well-organised room.
