Looking for small bedroom storage ideas? Look no further! We know it's easy when faced with a small bedroom to struggle with keeping your stuff neat, tidy and out of sight. When space is a premium, you want solutions that don't make the space feel more cramped!

We've gone through our products and selected the very best small bedroom storage pieces, and found some great customer imagery to help inspire you! Plus, some tips and advice on making the most of your available space. Small doesn't have to mean you compromise on style, tranquillity or comfort.

Small Bedroom Storage - Use The Underbed Space!

In most bedrooms, and especially in smaller rooms, the bed tends to be the largest piece of furniture taking up the most floor space. If you can use that same floorspace area for storage, you're already maximising available space. Ottoman beds and beds with drawers that slide underneath are a perfect way to keep things tidied away and out of sight entirely. You can use your under-bed space for clothing, toys, shoes, linens or even books.

Lucky for you, we happen to sell some amazing ottoman beds and beds with drawers!

Our ottomans are all easy to use on smooth-glide gas-powered hydraulic lifts. Bottom-lifting ottomans are standard, but the side-lifting Elisa is great if you need to push the bed right up into a corner. An alternative to an ottoman is to opt for a bed with enough space underneath to slide in drawers. Our Azure beds come with the option to purchase 2 or 4 drawers on wheels.

Bedroom Storage Ideas - Bedside Tables

After under-bed space, the next obvious option is to use any space on either side of the bed for bedside tables or nightstands. Taking up relatively little floor space but offering flat top surface and potentially drawers, these are a great easy storage solution. We sell a big range of bedside tables to suit all homes and styles.

Simple Bedside Tables

Here you can see our popular Alma bedside tables in grey! These are also pictured above with all of the Azure beds. Modern, elegant and with that Scandi-inspired tapered leg, these bedside tables keep your room feeling uncluttered!

Here's one of our newer bedside table additions - the lovely Taylor, with 2 drawers and flat top. We sell these in both white and black, with gold and silver handles, with 2 drawers or 1 drawer + shelf options! So, there's a Taylor for everyone!

Our Fossano bedside tables come in white or grey gloss, with two drawers to keep all your essentials neatly tidied away. The gloss helps reflect light around a bit more than our matte nightstands, which can help smaller rooms feel larger.

You can also get a lovely rustic farmhouse vibe in your smaller rooms by utilising a taller bedside table with a shelf that you can place handy wicker baskets on. We love how @athomewithfifi has styled one of our beds with these sweet tables and baskets! Keeping things tidy and stylish!

Mirrored Bedside Tables

A great way to bounce natural light around small bedrooms is by using mirrored surfaces for your storage!

Here, Jade shows us how our Italian Mirrored Bedside Table with 3 drawers gives the illusion of more space and light, especially when coupled with a long wall mirror behind, and glass accessories! Making perfect use of the narrow space at the side of the bed without cluttering up or adding too much height keeps this feeling open and fresh.

Creating a similar look to our Italian Mirrored Bedside Table, the Murano Mirrored Bedside Table is a narrower option, which makes it a really great space-saving storage solution!

Elevating the bedside table and keeping more space visible underneath is another great way to keep things feeling light and airy. Here, Kirsty has opted for our Porto Mirrored Bedside Tables that have gorgeous curved chrome legs and a single drawer. Glam and elegant!

Our Stella Crushed Diamond Mirrored Bedside Table has 3 drawers for storage, mirrored sides and top to bounce light around, and this beautiful crushed diamond effect to the drawer-fronts to add some dimension and texture.

Small Bedroom Storage - Use Chests of Drawers

If you're able to forgo a wardrobe, using only chests of drawers can stop a small bedroom from feeling too cluttered. Keeping space above the bed clear and open helps create a sense of additional height in the room.

Chests of Drawers as Bedside Tables

Now here's a cool idea! Maximise drawer space while still having some flat surface space beside the bed for your lamp, alarm clock and book.

Chests of Drawers for Bedroom Storage

Here are some other great examples of using our chests of drawers to provide a way to keep your clothes or other belongings out of sight. Our Alma drawers are really popular due to their modern fresh appearance and that angled, tapered leg that keeps space circulating around it. We sell them in grey or white, and in a taller version too!

The middle photo from @dailydoseofushome shows how you can also make a space feel larger with angled mirrors and a low clothes rail for hanging space.

Small Bedroom Storage - Shelving

You can create additional space to stash your stuff with some well-placed shelves. Keep things open and light with minimalist designs and unfussy straight lines.

Here, the simple bedside table and the white floating shelves really create a sense of light and space, putting the storage up higher without it looking bulky. We love how @ouringlefield has styled one of our glam beds here!

This functional office crafting space shows how minimalist furniture (that's our simple, modern Enzo White High Gloss Computer Office Desk) and a cube storage shelving unit laid horizontally with some handy storage boxes and baskets keep this room from feeling cluttered - there's a space for everything and the central floor space is kept clear.

This room really shows how a large wall mirror can make a small room seem double the size! Simple cube shelving and those floating shelves we can see in the reflection keeps belongings up off the floor, and the desk top clear too! That's our Valencia Grey High Gloss Modern Office Desk that we offer in a range of sizes and colours!)

A low-lying bookcase can be a place for books, yes, but also accessories, tech devices, or toys! Our Siena White High Gloss Modern Console Shelf would be great to add some narrow but practical storage space to a bedroom!
