Get Rid of Stuff You No Longer Need
Decluttering is one of the best ways to make the most of storage in your bedroom. Clutter drains your energy and can cost you time and money. Get rid of items you don’t use and sort out paperwork as it comes in. Make a commitment to declutter regularly as you’ll always create more storage space. Afterwards, return all the useful items to their original places.

Add Dressers and Closets
Small dressers leave wasted space on both ends. Large dressers on the other hand fill entire walls and make use of every last inch. If you don’t have an affinity for dressers, build closets where there are none. Put your DIY skills to work or call an expert to build the closet. Make sure it incorporates shelves, drawers, and hanging rods. You can also get a wardrobe rack to display your favorite clothing items.

The wall next to the headboard is usually blank in most bedrooms. You can install cabinets and open shelves in the wall and narrow cupboards on either side. The cupboards can hold hanging clothes while the cabinets and shelves can hold books and seasonal accessories. To be safe, ensure that anything you hang above your bed is very secure.
