One of the most serious challenges posed by a small bedroom is the lack of storage and convenience. In such a case, the most common question that pops up is “where do I store my wardrobe?”
What’s a bedroom worth without a wardrobe? This is a saying that had been [popular for ages, but no longer. Because as it turns out, it may actually be beneficial for your bedroom to maybe not have a wardrobe inside. In fact, that may even help you get the most space out of your room. We have, hence, curated a list of some of the most popular alternatives to a wardrobe for you. Read on!
A clothes rail is one of the most durable and widely-used alternatives to a wardrobe. Clothes rails are economical, space-saving and pretty readily available online. You can also find various variants of a clothes rail in home décor shops. They are one of the most stylish coat hanger options out there. A clothes rail can give your room a no-fuss vibe. You could also have clothes rails that are portable as this would lend you the flexibility to change layouts in your home. Alternatively, installing an overhead clothes rail would help with the vertical space in your room.
For achieving a flat hanging closet, you could create a hanging system (like a rail and peg hanging system) on a wall-mounted board. When it comes to a small bedroom, a flat hanging arrangement is a godsend. This is because a wall-mounted valet or closet is very compact and hence limits itself to the wall space you have available in the room.
One of the most invigorating ideas that challenge the status quo is “ Do I need one single wardrobe for everything?” And as it turns out, you don’t. You could very easily divide your closet across the length of your wall into cabinets. These cabinets can have shelves inside to make your life easier and more organized. Make sure these cabinets are wall-mounted cabinets. By keeping your cabinets elevated above the ground, you can usually free up floor space without compromising on a wardrobe vibe. Another alternative to this could be to install floating cabinets on either side of your bed instead of on one side. This would help you reclaim some unused corners if the cabinets are installed high enough. Combine this with a nightstand on either side, and you would have no dearth of storage.
Open shelving is one of the most clever ways to build a deep storage facility into a small bedroom. This also allows you to have a wardrobe alternative that is not really confined to closed doors. You can add some shelves, some pegs, and some rails to create an organized corner. Another idea for flexibility would be to get an open shelf on wheels as this would allow you to change layouts at your home.
If you own a bed with a headboard, then the wall around the headboard can be considered space gold for a small room. This is also one of the places that most often go unclaimed. Turn the headboard in your bedroom into storage by building or installing a frame of cabinets around your headboard. For convenience, you could include several storage formats like drawers, cupboards and even open shelves. You could also add cabinets on either side to have that floor-to-ceiling storage vibe.
If you have a small bedroom, a single wardrobe can really eat up your floor. The solution to this problem is simple - wall-mounted cupboards that are available in various sizes. You could scatter them across a single wall, to create a design statement that is truly head-turning– all while adding generous pockets of storage. If you leave enough wall and floor space, it would also help lend depth to your room.
If you own one or many small bedrooms, the two words that are going to save your life and make it easier are ‘multifunctional furniture’. A credenza is a storage that is integrated into your bed. A credenza at the foot of your bed can make the perfect version of a nightstand-cum-closet. Additionally, it can add elegance and sophistication to your space. A credenza is a proponent of function over form.
What is a small bedroom’s best friend? Bed elevation. You can build your bed at a height and turn the space beneath it into a storage unit. When it comes to under-bed storage, there are several formats you can use. If you have kids, and they share a bedroom, you could go for creating a bunk-bed unit, with the bed-heads aligned with opposite walls. Such a setup will allow you ample leftover space to build huge drawers, or even add some shelves. When it comes to a master bedroom or any other bedrooms, The under-bed storage could be added by adding an elevated bed that springs up. This could very well have modular drawers underneath - a setup that can create a very sleek, smart storage vibe.
Alternatively, if you feel an elevation wouldn’t sit well within your bedroom and is an unlikely thing to happen, you can consider a hinged, pop-out bed with a deep storage tray. The downside to this design is the backbreaking work of lifting up your bed on a daily basis to sift through and select clothes. Hence, this solution should most likely be used as secondary storage.
