2. Bedside Nook
When you want to maximise closet space but still need room for a bedside table, carve out a little nook by the side of your wardrobe to make room for one.

3. Glass-encased Wardrobe
Walk-in wardrobes are totally possible in a small bedroom. But if you don’t like the visual bulk it takes up, enclose it with glass panels. It lends a sense of airiness and is a wonderful way to show off your wardrobe.

4. Concealed Doorway
For a streamlined look throughout your small bedroom—helps to reduce the visual clutter—hide away the entrance into your en-suite by flushing it with your wardrobe fronts. You’ll get to throw in a little extra storage space too.

5. Double-Duty Bedside Table
Make furniture in a small bedroom work extra hard to maximise space. This nightstand does double duty as a study desk for when the occupants need to work from home.

6. Hidden Vanity
Corner storage isn’t always the easiest to make use of. Consider turning that difficult-to-use space into a hidden vanity where you can install shelves for makeup essentials.
7. Under-Bed Platform Storage
Going with a platform storage bed is one way to really maximise storage in your small bedroom. Think about installing a bed lift mechanism to make it easier to reach for the things you’ve stowed away under your bed.

8. Mirrored Wardrobe
Mirrors = a small space’s best friend. Replace generic wardrobe fronts with mirrored panels to really bring in the light and a sense of space to your small bedroom.

9. Headboard Storage
Your headboard doesn’t just have to be a pretty face; make it also functional by incorporating storage with it. We love this minimalist one that provides room to use as a nightstand so there’s no need for extra furniture in the bedroom.

10. Under-Bed Lighting
Lighting is a powerful way to change up perceptions, especially in a small bedroom. Place LED strips underneath the bed and furniture and they can seem like they are “floating”, making your space feel lighter and airier.
Design: AC Vision
11. Rotating TV Wall
A rotating TV wall means you won’t need a permanent spot for your TV in the bedroom. This frees up space for extra storage, which you can incorporate to the other side of the TV wall.

12. Bed Surround Storage
The space above your bed is often overlooked when it comes to storage. If you are afraid that it will feel claustrophobic, leave some room and make sure you aren’t installing it too close to where you will be when you are sitting up on the bed.
13. Murphy Bed
A Murphy bed is the solution for you if you need your bedroom space to be more flexible and multipurpose. Once bedtime’s over, hide your bed behind stylish wardrobe fronts and then use the space for whatever you need.

14. Concealed Vanity Storage
Don’t have room for makeup essentials? Build them over your mirror. This vanity storage opens up to reveal the mirror flanked by open shelves for storage.
