It’s not always easy to part ways with the things you love. With smaller bedrooms becoming more and more popular, you may feel like you’re faced with a tough choice: Get rid of your things or spend more money building a bigger bedroom. The truth is, you don’t have to do either. By maximizing storage within your existing bedroom floor plan, you can have the room of your dreams and still keep all of your things.
1. A closet
Your closet is your most valuable storage space. One of the mistakes homebuilders make is thinking that “bigger is better.” Actually, the way to effectively maximize storage is to create a closet that is able to efficiently store your belongings, including but not limited to clothes, shoes, suitcases, bags, purses, jewelry, blankets, and towels. If you have a good idea of everything you want to put in your closet, you can create a closet that perfectly meets your needs. Your architect can incorporate a perfectly sized closet into your bedroom plan. They can also show you similar closets that have worked well for other clients. This is an invaluable resource that will help you know exactly what your finished product will look like.
2. A wardrobe wall
A wardrobe wall is a new option that is quickly becoming very popular. It gives a bedroom a modern look and affords maximum storage. A wardrobe wall can be thought of as a dresser inside your wall. It can be used to store anything you want. Many different drawer options allow you to customize the look of your wardrobe wall. You can make it stand out by painting it a different color and adding drawers with interesting designs. Or, you can make it blend in by painting it the same color as your wall and adding slim drawers. In this regard, a wardrobe wall can be one of the unique features of your home.
3. A TV wall
When done properly, hanging your TV on your wall can look really cool and save you valuable space. It can also help you relax and be completely comfortable when watching TV and movies. It’s very important that you take the size of your TV into account when you’re creating your bedroom plans—or taking into account the size of your bedroom when buying a new TV. Not doing so can cause you to lose space. Your architect will be able to help you determine how big each of your walls should be and where you should place your television.
4. A bed with storage
A bed with storage underneath is great. It helps you stay neat and organized and gets the most out of your bedroom space. What needs to be accounted for when creating your bedroom plans is the size of your bed. Once your architect knows how big of a bed you’ll want in your room, the room can be perfectly designed to meet all of your needs.
Accessories that you’ll be using to help with storage need to be taken into account when creating your plans. Accessories like hanging shoe racks or hanging shelves can change the way your plans are made. The best thing you can do is let your architect know exactly what accessories you want to use.
A closet and a wardrobe wall are two great ways to maximize storage with your bedroom plans. A TV wall, bed with storage, and accessories will help you save space. The first step to creating a bedroom that maximizes storage and is everything you’ve ever wanted is to schedule an initial consultation with an experienced architect. The skills and creativity of an architect will get you going in the right direction.
