When space is more and more often coming at a premium, making the most of every square inch has become a necessity, especially when it comes to our bedrooms. Our design consultants have encountered numerous challenges and opportunities in optimising bedroom spaces. We’ve asked them for some valuable insights and practical tips to help you maximise your bedroom space and advice on creating a harmonious and functional oasis tailored to your needs.

1. Define Your Priorities

Before embarking on any design project, it's crucial to identify your priorities for the bedroom space. Are you looking for a serene atmosphere, ample storage, or a multi-functional room? Understanding your needs and preferences will guide the design process and ensure you achieve a space that truly serves you.

2. Optimise Your Bed

The bed is the focal point of any bedroom. Choose a style of bed with built-in storage, such as our Lugano range, to utilise the often unused space underneath. Alternatively, consider a bed frame with an elevated design, allowing for storage boxes or baskets to slide beneath. With these options, you can store extra linens, out-of-season clothing, or personal items, keeping your bedroom clutter-free.

3. Clever Storage Solutions

In smaller bedrooms, storage is paramount. To maximize space, consider incorporating floor-to-ceiling wardrobes or similar custom systems that can be tailored to fit your needs. You can also utilise the vertical space by installing shelves above dressers or wardrobes, providing additional storage for books, decor, or personal belongings.

4. Multifunctional Furniture

Investing in multifunctional furniture is a game-changer when it comes to optimizing bedroom space. Consider a dresser that doubles as a desk, a nightstand with built-in drawers, or a storage ottoman that serves as seating and a hidden storage compartment. These versatile pieces eliminate the need for separate furniture items, maximizing functionality without sacrificing style. See below for our top picks of multifunctional bedroom designs.

5. Use Mirrors To Your Advantage

Mirrors are a powerful tool in visually expanding small spaces. Strategically placing mirrors opposite windows or sources of natural light helps reflect light throughout the room, making it appear larger and brighter. Consider incorporating a full-length mirror or mirrored wardrobe doors to create the illusion of added space.

6. Space Saving Lighting

When it comes to lighting, opt for fixtures that save space without compromising on style. Wall-mounted lights or pendants not only add a touch of elegance but also free up valuable bedside or floor space. Additionally, installing dimmers allows you to adjust the lighting to create different moods and maximize the functionality of your bedroom. Check out our lighting range here.

7. Embrace Verticality

Make the most of your bedroom's vertical space by utilising wall-mounted storage solutions. Install floating shelves or hanging organizers to keep frequently used items within reach while keeping the floor clutter-free. Vertical space can also be utilised for hanging plants, artwork, or wall-mounted TVs, saving valuable floor space.
