Your bedroom is a space that you may want to update more often than the rest of your house. With your personal style constantly changing, it’s nice to give your bedroom a re-fresh. But this can be a little bit challenging when you haven’t got much space to work with…
For a smaller bedroom…
If you have a slightly smaller bedroom, you’ll quickly realise how much space is taken up by storage – leaving very little room to play with. That’s why your furniture selection should be something you don’t have to change. When you have furniture that’s stylish, functional and clever you can’t go wrong.
So if you have a bedroom that’s lacking some extra space, here are some key things to consider…
Comfort, Design… And Function
Remember, your bedroom is predominately used for two things – sleeping, and storage. While it’s also the one room in your house to escape and unwind, you can’t ignore how it’s going to function! So let’s look at some options…
When it comes to storage options, there are bedsides, tallboys, chests of drawers and wardrobes. But it’s how they’re made which can make all the difference… If you don’t have a large area, you don’t want to fill up your space with bulky cabinets. While having extra drawers and shelves can be very handy, it often means restricting your space… But this doesn’t have to be the case.
Custom Design, made for you
At Nordic Design, we customise all bedroom furniture right here in South Australia. This means, you can personalise the design you like, plus the way it functions. Why not add some drawers underneath your bed frame? Discreet and very handy, these are a great solution for hidden storage. Taking up no extra room, you can fit plenty in these deep, wide drawers – what a great space saver!
And while we’re on the topic of bed frames, you can also attach your bedsides for some extra floor room. With the ‘floating’ design, this will also give the illusion of more space, making your bedroom feel larger. However, even if you opt for a traditional bedside, we can add some extra drawers, or even a shelf. No matter what type of additional storage you need, we can customise each piece to specifically suit your requirements.
The traditional cabinetry…
Of course, it’s hard to avoid cabinetry completely when it comes to bedroom storage… Which is why we personalise every item. For your tallboy (or chest of drawers) you can extend your cabinetry to the floor – or ceiling – to max your space. By doing this you might gain an extra 2 or 3 drawers in a single piece!
However, if you’re wanting something a little lighter for your room, by having a tapered leg to sit off the ground will open your area, and once again create an illusion of extra space. And if you’re not wanting to compromise on design, perhaps have flush doors on the surface, with custom internals? Open up to custom shelving and drawers… All of your bedroom storage should be ideal for the type of bedroom you have.
