For those with limited space in the bedroom, creating sufficient storage for clothes, shoes and accessories can seem like a bit of a challenge.
But it needn't be.
With some creative thinking you can easily store everything you need and more!
If anything, a smaller space encourages you to be extra resourceful and better organised, which has to be a good thing.
If you are planning to replace your bedroom furniture, it's a great opportunity to re-design your room to get the maximum out of your space and it definitely helps to measure up and draw a plan on graph paper to scale. Make a note of any permanent fixtures you'll need to work around, such as fireplaces or built-in wardrobes.
Before you start to replace or re-organise your existing bedroom furniture, assess the type of storage you currently have. How does it currently meet your needs? For example, you may have more hanging space than you need, but not enough drawers. Maybe you simply need to adjust the balance of storage.
If you lack storage space, a great idea is to choose a bed with drawers. All Silentnight upholstered beds, in addition to a 5 year guarantee, come with a great range of storage options such as two or four drawers, or perhaps you prefer the lift up Ottoman style to easily access your bedding and blankets?
You could combine one of these fantastic bases with a great value mattress like the Mirapocket 1200 Mattress, which has just been re-awarded its Which? Best Buy for mattresses. With a double-sided and hand-tufted 1200 advanced Mirapocket spring system (giving targeted support in different zones for superior comfort), the mattress is Purotex treated to reduce moisture and dust-mite allergens. Importantly, this comes with the Allergy UK seal of approval.
