You’ve likely seen clothing racks in coat rooms, at apparel stores, and around other areas of people’s homes. They’re often stuffed silly with big, bulky coats and all sorts of other pieces of clothing.
These are perennial favorites across the world – from small attic and studio apartments to dorm rooms all over the globe. Just because you are short on space and wish to maximize the square footage does not mean that you need to sacrifice style, and these ingenious IKEA bedroom compositions showcase precisely that.
Once you’ve decluttered your bedroom of all those little nicknacks and accessories, it’s time to either get rid of them or store them away where they can’t collect dust. Think furniture pieces or storage solutions with drawers, cupboards, bins, boxes, or anything else that hides stuff from being out in the open.
If you live in an apartment or a “cozy” home, then you know just how much of a hassle it can be to try and position your furniture (or even fit all your furniture) in a way that looks good and is relatively functional.
We’ve covered a lot of hanging ideas so far for open concept closets, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take advantage of other structures or areas of your room that can create a frame for your clothing storage.
While regular cleaning and vacuuming is a must, here are a few other tips you should consider when designing your bedroom to help keep the dust to a minimum.
And when you don’t have a room to call your home office, figuring out where to put a desk can be a serious challenge. The den? The bedroom? Where else? Well, if you’re willing to sacrifice some storage space, then the closet could be your solution. These maximize space in small rooms and actually look really great!
This furniture piece from Bogilicious shown in the first image below has space for both folded and hanging clothing. You could also attach a frame to your wall, as shown in the second example, or you could simply just make use of the shallow closet space you already have by removing the doors to make it an open concept design.
