Space saving ideas for your bedroom

At Next Divan we have a passion to help everyone have a great, affordable sleeping experience. While our customers know that our beds, frames and headboards are made to the highest quality and safety standards, having limited space in increasingly small bedrooms is something that often gets in the way of a good night’s sleep. So, here are some of our space saving ideas and storage solutions to maximise the comfort and reduce the clutter when you go to bed.

Having a clean and tidy bedroom is the perfect start to a brilliant night’s sleep, bringing peace and calm into your sleeping space, promoting positive personal wellbeing and helping you to drift off into a serene slumber.

Invest in a storage bed

Traditional divan frames and ottoman bases are the most popular solutions for saving space in the bedroom, as these offer a good amount of storage built into the bed.  By simply bringing one of these beds into your room, you will create storage within the bed frame, without needing to take up any more space in the room - perfect for decluttering!

Traditional divan bases can be purchased as either two-drawer or four-drawer models. In the case of two-drawer models, drawers are either located on the same side of the bed or at the front end. These are recommended if you have large bedside units. Meanwhile, four-drawer models offer two drawers on either side of the bed and are ideal if you have small units.

Ottoman bases include a storage area located underneath the mattress frame. This is accessed by lifting a hinged mattress frame, either from the front end or the side of the bed, with the help of a discreet hydraulic system. The space underneath the mattress is perfect for storing bulky items including spare bedding, out-of-season clothing or suitcases.

Use the space under your bed

Don’t have a divan base? Then, make use of the available space under your bed. Buy some storage boxes or loose drawers, preferably on wheels or castors, so you can easily slide them underneath your bed. 

Better still, why not place your items in vacuum storage bags first before putting them in containers? Making the most of spaces within the room is a great place to start, and with a wide range of custom bed boxes available, it’s easy to find something suitable that will integrate into an existing bed frame.

Invest in a storage bed

For something next to your bed, opt for a small chest of drawers for either side of the bed, instead of a table. A chest of drawers is the perfect place to store socks, underwear, jewellery or knick-knacks you simply cannot throw away.

If you don’t have enough space for a bedside unit, why not consider installing a small ledge shelf instead for your phone or bedtime reading? These can be perfect for extra storage without adding lots of space to the room, and can be neatly placed where convenient.

Swap any chairs or stools with a cushioned storage box, which is ideal for storing spare linen bedding.
