There’s plenty of things that you can do to help organize a bedroom and maximize space, no matter what size the room is.

Place Beds Strategically
Depending upon the layout of the room, you need to make sure the placement of your beds is correct. If you have kids, you may want to consider bunk beds, or a bed that is mounted over a desk. This will give you the maximum amount of space that the room provides. If you have a room with a slanted wall, you can tuck a bed into the corner, even pushing it against a wall. You can even place your beds from end-to-end within a room in order to maximize space.
Get Creative With Storage
First, you’ll want to make the most use of your wall space and put up plenty of shelving. You can even use shelving near the bed in place of night stands or other tables. This provides an extra place to store things that is out of the way.
The space under the bed is a great place to tuck things away as well. You can get a bed with drawers installed in it, or raise your bed using risers and fit the bed with your own drawers or plastic containers.
Baskets are another great tool to help you stay organized. You can find behind-the-door basket organizers that allow you to keep things in without taking up any space in the bedroom. You can even consider placing baskets throughout the room on shelving units and dressers.
Use Your Closet
No matter how large or small the closet in your bedroom is, you need to make use of the space. Use a shoe rack to keep footwear organized in the closet, Install additional shelving towards the back of the closet space in order to maximize the area that you do have.
Whether you are considering buying a home with a small bedroom or already have small space issues in your current home, there’s many creative ways that you can make use of your space and make a small room feel bigger.
