10 Creative Ways to Make Your Small Bedroom Comfy And Organised

10 Creative Ways to Make Your Small Bedroom Comfy And Organised

Small bedrooms are painful. It can seem like you have so much stuff and nowhere to store it all. If you want to organise your small bedroom, you’re going to have to get creative. Through using the space that is available to you, you can find a place for everything inside without making your room look cluttered and messy.

The following life hacks will be revolutionary for your bedroom.

1. Use the Back of the Bedroom Door

Have you ever thought that your door could be put to better use? After all, it takes up a lot of space just sitting there and swinging around. By hanging things on the back of it, you can finally put it to work. These days, you can find door storage organisers anywhere. Try using hanging shoe holders and hooks. What’s great about this option is that most of the time, you’re keeping these items out of sight.

2. Place Shelves Behind the Bed

The headboard is wasted space. It may make your bed look a bit more stylish, but you’re losing a lot of that wall space for no good reason. Ditch the headboard and put some shelves up there instead. Not only will you get a striking look, but you’ll be able to add some storage space for decorations and night-time books.

3. Try a Sofa Bed

Getting rid of the old-fashioned bed entirely may be unthinkable to some people. It’s a big step to take, but it can be a positive one if you use a sofa bed instead. A sofa bed can be folded up when you’re not in it, and, of course, it also combines a sofa and a bed, so you can easily entertain your friends or enjoy the company of your significant other.

If you have a really small space, folding up the sofa bed can offer the illusion of a bedroom that’s neat and tidy — even though when you roll it out it becomes something of a cluttered mess all over again.

4. Use Empty Cereal Boxes as Dividers

Use everything that you have available to you. If you really want to get creative, save up those empty cereal boxes. Cut them into the right shape, make them attractive by wrapping some coloured paper around them, and organise your drawers by using them as storage boxes. It’s also far cheaper than buying actual boxes.

5. Take Advantage of Under-Bed Storage

Do you remember when you were a kid and you’d sometimes hide under the bed?

As an adult, you may be too old for that, but what you should remember is that under-bed space has a huge amount of untapped storage potential. Raised double beds from bedsos are a great option if you want to really maximise the space you have under the bed. You can store anything from out-of-season bed sheets to winter clothing.

It’s an excellent long-term storage bed option.

6. Hook the Shoes Against the Wall

Shoes are responsible for the messy look in most small bedrooms. Chances are that you don’t have a dedicated space to put them in, so you have no choice but to throw them into a corner somewhere.

For this hack, you’ll need an upcycled ladder. Lean it against the bedroom wall and hook your shoes over each step. Not only have you now got a storage space, but you’ve also added some extra decor.

7. Make Clothes Hangers Fool-Proof

Sometimes clothes hangers can turn your wardrobe into a floordrobe — especially if you have a lot of them. If you have some rubber bands and some hot glue lying around, you can string these across your clothes hangers. Leave them to dry and you can now place your clothes over the hangers without the chance of any slipping by using non-slip hangers.

8. Store Jewellery in a Picture Frame

If you really want to get creative, it’s time to find a place to store jewellery.

First, find an old photo frame that’s been lying around for a while, three large twigs, and some pins. Get that hot glue gun you used in the previous section and glue the twigs horizontally to the photo frame. Now you can place the pins into the twigs and hook your various pieces of jewellery from the pins. It’s a personal touch that will not go unnoticed by visitors. You can even put a picture in the frame for an extra decorative element!

9. Make Your Desk Into a Bedside Table

A desk and a bedside table are probably going to be too much for small bedrooms. To get around this, disguise your desk as a bedside table. This is the simplest hack on this list because all you have to do is move your desk next to the bed. It will also act against your temptation to pile the desk high with dirty cups and bowls.

10. Use Tins for Storage

Old food tins are useful for storage. Wash them out and decorate them with something that catches the eye. Place stationary, jewellery, and little trinkets inside them. They will help you to stop things from being lost.

How will you start organising your small bedroom today?

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
