1. Hidden bedroom storage solutions - the ottoman bed

The storage bed is the small bedroom's dream. Whether stowing away last season's wardrobe or your collection of spare bedlinen, ottoman beds and divan beds with drawer storage allow you to put the space beneath your bed to good use. Many modern ottomans feature sleek, concealed drawer panels or mattresses that lift up to allow you easy access to what's underneath. They're discrete and roomy, meaning you can hide all sorts of non essentials under your mattress and nobody will be any the wiser.

2. Add some luxe bedroom storage with a dressing table Functional as a place to get ready for work or and evening out, many dressing tables also offer additional storage space. What's more, a smart and sleek vintage style can bring a really luxurious feel to your bedroom. Big or small, modern or traditional, a dressing table with drawers can provide invaluable in keeping so many of those smaller items in once place while providing an elegant and stylish place to get ready.

3. The hard working wardrobe

As bedroom storage solutions go, the wardrobe is the one that has to work the hardest. The good news is that the modern wardrobes are available in a much wider range of sizes and shapes than ever. Slim, tall wardrobes are ideal for awkard spaces, while bigger, slider wardrobes may actually work in your favour as they create the illusion of more space (especially those with mirrors on the front). Our semi-fitted wardrobes make the most of your space while providing a huge amount of bedroom storage, and they can even move house with you.

4. The chest of drawers

With the new craze for folding rather than hanging clothes, the chest of drawers is fast becoming the bedroom storage solution of choice. And the beauty is that they come in so many heights and widths you're sure to find one to suit your space perfectly - think narrow, tall chests of drawers for alcoves or other tight spaces, for example. Investing in some drawer dividers can also help to make the most of and organise the space you have, and you might even want to swap your desk or dressing table for a larger drawer unit that can perform the function of both.

5. Bedside cabinets - easy storage for essentials

Small but super functional, a bedside table is an invaluable bedroom storage solution. Invest in a bedside table with one, two or three - drawers to really get the most out of your room. And remember that bedside cabinets look good in pairs, so don't be afraid to double up - it's an easy way to gain twice as much bedroom storage space. It can be tempting to use these just for books and bedside bits and pieces, but we recommend making them a dedicated spot for essential items you use every morning - everything from cosmetics and toiletries to important letters or stationary.

The best bedroom storage solutions are not simply practical, they're stylish too. With a little bit of bedroom decluttering and some well thought out new bedroom storage, you'll soon have a calm and restful bedroom you'll love.
