Space saving furniture ideas for a small bedroom

Posted on

Is your bedroom a little on the small side? Fear not!  I’m here with a blog post full of ideas to maximise the space in your tiny room and create more storage at the same time.  With some clever space saving furniture you’ll be able to stop moaning about the lack of space and start learning to use the space more effectively.

Here’s some perfect space saving furniture ideas for a small bedroom:

TV bed

Have you seen the amazing new TV Beds?  They’re great for any bedroom, not just a small one.  These cleverly designed beds conceal a TV in the end that can be raised when needed and hidden within the end of the bed frame when not.  Not only does this save your bedroom from looking like another lounge, but it’s a brilliant space saver for small rooms. 

Under-bed storage

If you have space under your bed then consider some pull out (on wheels for ease) storage drawers.  These can be used instead of a chest of drawers to store jeans, jumpers and even smalls whilst not taking up any extra bedroom space.  If you prefer a divan or TV Bed then choose one with built in drawers and storage underneath.

Floor to ceiling wardrobe

Every inch of space is precious when you have limited space, plus you still want to have some clear areas so your room doesn’t feel claustrophobic or like a furniture shop.  Instead of wasting the gap above a wardrobe, have floor to ceiling cupboards to utilise the entire area.  This could save having a chest of drawers taking up valuable space or it could even mean a narrower wardrobe as it gives you more room vertically rather than horizontally.  With such a tall wardrobe you may be able to have two rails of clothes instead of one.


Mirrors will give the illusion of a larger room, making it feel less cramped.  Consider having the doors of your wardrobe mirrored to save even more space and give our clothes closet a multifunction.  Saving space is maximised if you can find more than one use for a piece of furniture.

Get creative with shelves

Really high up shelves, if done properly, can look really stylish and add interest to a room.  Have some cool devil’s ivy plants draping down to make them into a feature and not just somewhere to store your knick-knacks.  If you’ve no room for a bedside cabinet, add a corner shelf or shelves above the bed instead.  Install a radiator shelf or even better; hide the ugly thing with an entire radiator cover which doubles up as a shelf too.  This gives some extra storage and display space whilst making your room look a little nicer and cosier.

Bedside table/desk/nightstand

Instead of small bedside drawers, add a small bedside table instead that can triple up as a nightstand, dresser and even a desk.  Something with a narrow drawer underneath to keep it clutter free and add a shelf and mirror up above to be able to use it as a dresser.  Slide a stool underneath if there's enough space and use it as your dresser and desk too!  Or how about a custom handmade bedside table that can be made to your size requirements?

Alternatively, consider out-of-home storage solutions

While space-saving furniture can do a lot for your home, sometimes there isn't enough room to conceal larger items. If you enjoy an active lifestyle, your flat might not be able to comfortably hold your hiking backpacks, surfboards or fishing equipment among many other things. The sizes of properties in London don't help. 

For this case, it might be better to look for storage solutions in your local neighbourhood. Self-storage in Harrow can comfortably hold bulkier items from sports gear to unused furniture. It can work alongside your spacing-saving furniture and help create a more spacious home.     

With a little imagination and some cleverly designed furniture, you’ll be able to save space in the smallest of bedrooms.
