Bedrooms should be a place where you can relax, rest, unwind and above all – get a great night’s sleep. We all know this, but the reality can be very different. The bedroom is often the place you scramble to get ready for work in the morning, and we’re all guilty of leaving clothes in a pile on the floor after a long day when we jump into bed at night.
With the kitchen and bathroom constantly topping the cleaning list, it’s all too easy to forget about your bedroom. Before you know it, the bedroom is an unorganised mess and a far cry from the relaxing zen-filled space you envisioned. Today, we’re going to look at ways you can enhance your bedroom design to help maintain the peaceful sanctuary you deserve to get a good night’s sleep.
If your bedroom lacks storage space, then the space under your bed can offer the perfect solution. Storing seasonable clothes and items you don’t use often but still want to keep hold of under your bed is a great way to have them on hand but out of sight.
There are tons of creative storage solutions for under-bed storage. Some bed frames even come with built-in drawers or a hinged frame that allows the mattress to be lifted so items can be stored in the empty space underneath. If you’ve got a knack for upcycling old furniture, you can even repurpose old drawers from a chest of drawers to create genuinely bespoke under-bed storage.
If you’re looking for a quick and discreet solution for under-bed storage, Hart’s Servetto Roomy Boxes are perfect. These shallow but spacious storage boxes slide under your bed with ease and, once they’re under, you won’t even know they’re there – perfect for keeping your bedroom free from clutter.
If you can keep what’s inside your wardrobe organised, you’ll find it much easier to keep the rest of your bedroom looking great. With clever, internal wardrobe fixtures and fittings, you can open your wardrobe doors and see exactly where everything is, making it easy to put away clean clothes, shoes, and accessories. Wardrobe fittings can also help make use of space inside your wardrobe that would otherwise go unused.
Pull Out Shoe Rack
Installing a sliding, foldable shoe rack into your wardrobe will keep your shoes organised and free up space in the bottom of the wardrobe for even more storage. Our folding shoe rack means you’ll never have to reach to the back of your wardrobe in search of a particular pair of shoes again, as the frame slides out on runners, giving you easy access to all your shoes.
Tie & Belt Organisers
Keeping belts, ties, and other accessories organised inside your wardrobe can be tricky if you don’t have a custom build solution. Hanging ties and belts over a standard clothes hanger is a quick fix, but you will find that, as you take things out of your wardrobe and put things back, they’ll get jostled around and most likely end up sliding off and onto the wardrobe floor.
It is possible to buy hands specifically designed for storing belts and ties, but the best way to keep your collection organised is to fit a purpose-built drawer like the Vibo Elite Tie and Belt Organiser inside your wardrobe. The divided drawers create an individual compartment for every belt or tie, keeping them safe, clean and easy to access at all times.
Concealed Laundry Basket
Laundry baskets can be unsightly – especially when full – and don’t lend themselves to a relaxing, beautiful bedroom. You can make a feature from your laundry basket, or you can conceal it inside your wardrobe entirely, so you never have to look at your dirty clothes again – until it’s time to do the washing of course. The Vibo Laundry Basket hangs from a frame inside your wardrobe and comes with a removable linen basket for easy use.
Hooks can be a great way to add fun, quirky storage to your bedroom. Hanging bags, coats, dressing gowns or tomorrow’s outfit from a decorative hook can soften and personalise your bedroom – and keep your clothes off the floor. Hooks don’t just have to be used for clothes, though – you can get creative and incorporate them into your bedroom’s design. Our Ludlow Gothic Hooks look fantastic when used to hang wicker or jute hanging baskets from – allowing you to decorate your room with trailing plants or succulents without taking up space on surfaces.
Using LED tape light can help create a cosy, warm and relaxing bedroom that you’ll never want to leave. Bedroom lighting should always be soft and unobtrusive to help you wind down at the end of a long day. LED tape light is perfect for bedrooms as it can create gentle light sources in unusual and creative places. Hiding it behind the headboard of your bed can help add depth to your bed and create a romantic atmosphere. Experiment with LED tape light under your bed, around your furniture and ceiling borders, and see what works for you.
