When you are living in small houses or 2 BHK flats in Mumbai, it becomes more critical than ever to think of clever storage ideas to prevent clutter and maximise the space. However, there are so many ways you can incorporate smart storage ideas into your living space.
Don’t have a proper closet? You can fit a slim clothing rack. Have a tiny kitchen? There are so many ways to use the wall and shelf space to put your cooking stuff. Small spaces are all about living better by having less. Anyone who lives in a small home or apartment should think of the activities they want to do in their living spaces and then set up the things accordingly.
A bedroom is your haven of relaxation where you can retreat for peace and quiet. But due to lack of storage, the room might look cluttered and messy. So, we bring some smart bedroom storage ideas for you that let you creatively use the space you are available with:
Storage Under the Bed
This is one of the most common yet effective tricks. You can put boxes or bags under the bed. Or, you can have bed frames with storage drawers built. These can be used to put away shoes, or towels, or bed linens even. If you have some ugly boxes, under the bed they go!
Moreover, you can use the space under the bed to create a storage platform complete with drawers and shelves to get the most out of space.
Get a Multipurpose Bed
This is another cool trick. There are different types of hide-and-seek furniture available now. You can make a table or even a sofa out of the bed. This lets you hide the bed when you are not using it. You can use a Murphy or folding bed. There is sofa-cum-bed as well that serves as a couch all day long and can be used as a bed at night. This works great for studio apartments.
Utilise the Closet Space
You need to set your closet in such a way that allows you to use the space completely. A shelf with a hanging rod at the height of 6 feet is not what you would call the best use of space. Refresh your closet with smart ways to hang up and arrange your clothes. You can use makeshift shelves, using double hangers, and even use storage boxes and baskets to keep your folded clothes in. Combine hanging racks and shelves to make the most out of your closet space.
Use the Space Around Windows and Ceiling
For stuff that you use rarely, you can use the space below the ceiling and create shelves that go around the entire room. Also, the windows are an essential entryway for natural light. They do wonders to make a room or the home feel homey and inviting. You can use the wall with windows and build window storage. You can use cube storage or an IDEA shelf to create a window bench and make storage cabinets underneath it to put away stuff.
Try out these tips and you would see how with all the extra stuff put away your room looks neat and spacious. If you are looking to move to a smaller space, there are flats in Byculla where you can have a cozy space of your own.
