Turn the corners of your small room into storage space by adding a bar, or two, extending from one wall to the next. This can give you some much-needed room to hang your coats, extra shirts, and other clothing and accessories.

Take advantage of the space between your clothes hanging in your closet and the back wall by using Command Hooks. These types of hooks installed on the wall in the back of your closet make the perfect place to store accessories, such as purses, belts, scarves, and umbrellas, among others.

Use a Headboard With Storage Space

Multifunctional furniture serves its original purpose while also offering extra storage space. Opting for a headboard with shelves is a great way to create more space in a small bedroom. This allows you to easily store books and other items that you might use in the bedroom or when trying to get to sleep.

Utilize Baskets on Bookshelves

Placing baskets on a bookshelf gives you a great place to store small knickknacks and other items you have no place for in a small room. Some of the items you could place in a basket include books and magazines, mobile devices, and mementos that are important to you.

Use a Hanging Coat Rack

Make a space-saving coat rack using a ceiling hook, some cord, wooden hangers, and wooden beads. Remove the metal hook from the wooden hanger and run a long piece of cord through the wooden bead and the hole in the now-hookless hanger. Tie a knot and hang the other end of the cord from the ceiling hook.

Use a Pegboard to Hold Accessories

Most rooms have unused space around the top part of the walls near the ceiling. Turn this space into a functional space to store books and other items by installing a high shelf. This gives you more space to store the items you do use every day in an easy-to-reach area.

Use Risers to Create Storage Space Under Your Bed

Use a set of risers to lift your bed off of the floor to create additional storage space. This allows you a place to slide boxes and other storage containers. To cover up what is underneath your bed, simply buy a bed skirt to cover it all up.

Make a Shelf Double as a Clothing Rack

Please SHARE this with your friends and family.

If you have hanging wall shelves, attach a bar underneath using large ceiling hooks to turn it into extra storage space for your most-often-worn outfits, jackets, and coats. Just make sure that the hanging shelf is firmly attached to the wall.
