4 Creative Storage Solutions for Small Spaces

Having a small space can actually come with a lot of potential, even though it can seem challenging at first. Not only does a small space allow you to create a cosy space to relax, but they can also help bring your bills down as you have a smaller space to heat. 

Here at Zoom Room, we understand that it's important to make sure that your room is still functional and meets your needs, despite its size. Below are some tips which can help you maximize the space in your small room.

1. Use multi-functional furniture

Zoom Beds are a great way to save space in your room as they can be hidden away when they aren’t in use, and can also be used as extra storage.  Unlike traditional Murphy Beds that fold down manually, our remote controlled electronic Zoom-Bed Murphy Beds float into the room with the push of a button. Housed in an elegant cabinet, the Zoom-Bed allows you to utilize the space in front for a flat screen TV, bookshelves, art boxes, a painting or whatever you can imagine.

Furniture that has built-in storage can  be a great space-saving solution. For example, an ottoman that doubles as a coffee table with hidden storage inside can be a stylish and functional addition to a living room. Zoom Room Fold Down Tables and Desks are a great option if you don’t need to use your furniture all the time. They store away and simply fold down when you need to use them. So if you needed a table from time to time, this is a great option as it gives you the freedom to use it only when you need.

2. Use storage wisely

If you find that you’re needing a bit more storage even after adding multi-functional furniture, baskets and tubs are a great way to store items in a stylish and functional way. They can be used to store everything from clothes and shoes to toys and office supplies, so that they are neatly out of the way. You can place them on shelves, under tables, or in closets to help keep items organized. For example if you don’t have any space for shoes in your wardrobe, you can put them into a basket and slot them under your desk, or behind the door in a corner. This also helps to reduce the tripping hazard when they are stored away.

There are also designated storage tools which have been designed to help keep you organized, for example if you need a space to store your pens and papers, there are great storage solutions specifically for this. Similarly with items such as skincare, you can have a rotating display for these which can sit on your desk or vanity, so they are organized but out of the way.

3. Use as much wall space as you can

You can add storage onto the walls without it looking too overcrowded and messy. Installing a pegboard on one of your walls can be a useful way to create a storage area for tools or small items such as jewelry or watches. A magnetic board can also be a useful way to store important papers or office supplies like paper clips and notepads. 

Another great option is to install shelves or bookcases that go all the way up to the ceiling. This can help you utilize every inch of available space, especially if you have a room with high ceilings. You can also use over-the-door organizers or wall-mounted baskets to store small items like shoes or accessories.

Whereas some people like to display photos and art on bookshelves and mantle pieces, you can also opt for hanging such items on your walls instead to free up some space. This allows you to use this space for other items such as books or magazines.

4. Organise your cupboards and closets

Slim hangers, or accessory hangers can help you maximize closet space by allowing you to hang more items in a smaller space. You can also install a hanging rod to create extra storage space in a closet or on a wall, or you can also add some drawers into your wardrobe to keep all your clothes and belongings in one place.

You can also add boxes into your closet to organise your belongings as well, just make sure that you don’t overfill these spaces as it’s important that they have the correct ventilation to prevent mildew and mould. 

If you’re storing clothes in your small room then it’s a good idea to have a clear out beforehand of any clothes which you no longer wear. You can then decide whether you would like to donate or sell any unwanted clothing. A great way to find out what you don’t reach for anymore is to face all of your hangers one way and then if you wear something then put it back facing in the opposite direction. Check back a few months later and anything which hasn’t been touched, you can decide whether you might wear it again or whether it’s worth recycling it.

It’s time to take control of the space in your small room

A small room can feel cozy and intimate, and can be a sanctuary where you can relax, read a book, watch a movie, or simply unwind after a long day. This can also encourage you to keep your space organized and clutter-free.

With limited space, you'll be forced to be selective and intentional about what you keep in your room. You can use this as an opportunity to declutter and simplify your life, getting rid of items you no longer need or use. This can help you keep it organized and tidy.

Storage is crucial in a small room to keep clutter at bay. By using these creative storage solutions, you can maximize your small living space and keep your belongings organized and easily accessible.
