Under bed storage
That’s prime real estate that you could be using as storage. A fancy upgrade would be to create a platform bed. Or if you’re working on a budget, simply increase that storage area with this home organization hack: bed risers. These zippered drawers fit perfectly underneath the bed. (via Make Space)
Under mattress storage
Hah, bet you didn’t think of using the space under your mattress to store stuff. Extra sheets and linens are perfect to go in this totally forgotten space. Not only does it free up drawer or closet space, it’s so conveniently located for when it comes time to change out your sheets. Check out the way to fold sheets if you're worried of a Princess and the Pea thing happening. (via One Good Thing by Jillee)
Near the headboard
If you have a bookcase, you could use that as your headboard. Or install these shelves in a staggered manner like so for some headboard storage on the dime. Also makes for nice home décor.
In the nightstand
If you’re lucky enough to have space for a nightstand, consider putting a power strip inside so that all your wires and electronics can be charged in one central location. (via Giddy Upcycled)
Or better yet, use one of these foldable caddies to keep your stuff bedside. Perfect to take with you on trips, friend’s house, or to your college dorm as well.
At foot of bed
If you’ve got a skinny desk or shelf, you can have that at the end of your bed. Or have seating and storage space in one with this ottoman storage bench. Love that it’s compartmentalized.
For those who’ve wondered how to organize your small bedroom, I hope you’ve found these DIY bedroom organization ideas from Pinterest helpful in turning any tight, small bedroom into a cozy haven. Organizing a room with too much stuff is totally doable!
