Bedrooms are a place to rest and relax yet this is hardly possible when your wardrobe becomes a 'floordrobe' and your bedside table is piled high with shopping lists, bills and unread magazines. A few simple tricks could see your bedroom transform from a pigsty into a tidy retreat. From small awkward spaces to large minimalist space, there is always a solution to your lack of space, all you need is a little bit of time and some imagination.
A floordrobe is a form of storage for clothing which requires no hangers, drawers, doors or effort. Simply drop on the floor and you have a floordrobe.
The first place to utilise is the space under your bed. Whether you have a free standing or built in bed, basket, draws and cupboards can be fitted and used to store your shoes, books and hoarded goodies. Consider doubling your bed head as a wardrobe if you have the space behind. Look at these simple ideas below.
Whether its just fixing a shelf in place or exploring cabinetry options, boundless of storage space exists above your bed, even as high as the architraves. When fixing a shelf yourself, be wary of the weight that it can hold. If your bed is against a wall, think about building extra storage around it. Tall, narrow cupboards on either side of the bed can hang jackets and coats whilst longer cupboards are great for old book and off-season accessories.
Shoes are one of those things that constantly inhabit the bedroom floor, especially if there’s a woman in the house. If you’re anything like Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City, you would understand the pain of having insufficient shoe storage. Not all shoe storage has to be ugly yet it does have to be practical.

Seek slim bedside tables or if possible, mount your night lamps on the wall and save on floor space. Floating shelves are also great for holding your clock and novel without taking up floor space.
