Grace in a Small Space: Small Bedroom Ideas

Bedrooms7th March 2022 4 minute read

Some of the most beautiful things can come in tiny packages – and that includes bedrooms. While old cottages, small flats and quirky rooms might not easily accommodate standard wardrobes, at John Lewis of Hungerford, our experienced designers are used to creating stunning storage spaces to fit even the most unusual nooks and crannies. From bespoke fitted wardrobes to dressing rooms, it is possible to find grace in a small bedroom space.

Storage Ideas for Small Spaces: Bedroom Edition

Your bedroom is your sanctuary, the place you go to unwind after a long day or curl up on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Keeping your bedroom a clutter-free and relaxing environment isn’t always easy and at John Lewis of Hungerford, we know this is doubly true for small bedrooms, where every inch of space counts. With the right planning, we can help you make even the smallest room appear spacious and clutter-free. Our interior designers have plenty of bedroom storage design ideas to make small bedrooms look airy and elegant.

  •  Choose bespoke fitted wardrobes

Does your room feature awkward angles or a sloping ceiling? Whether you need to install floor-to-ceiling storage or a set of drawers that are set deep in your wall, a custom-built wardrobe can make use of every single centimetre of space. Minimalist Pure bedrooms are ideal for compact, modern spaces as their clean lines make a small room feel bigger. For an ultra-minimalist look, handleless designs also contribute to a sleek, clutter-free space.

Bespoke wardrobes provide countless options for door design, shelf configuration, accessory compartments, hangers, drawers and shoe storage.

  • Make the most of your walls

When you have limited space, it is time to get creative. Make use of your corners and any other underutilised spaces by installing units like shelves or wall-mounted nightstands to replace clunky bedside tables. You can choose to layer shelving on a wall or add a single high shelf that stretches along the perimeter of your room, sitting cleanly above any dressers or vanities. These layers of shelving can help make a ceiling seem taller and, with the right lighting, you can create the illusion of a larger room while incorporating more storage options.

A floating dressing table with built-in drawers and a mirror hanging above it are ideal space savers and can add a luxurious touch to compact rooms. Perhaps you have a gap between two irregular wall spaces. We recommend joining them with shelves, which are perfect for storing everything from books and stationery to bed linens and bottles of perfume. Any leftover space can be home to the decorative features that make your room truly yours, such as candles, making the room much cosier and encouraging you to unwind after a long day.
