The Best Way to Use The Bedroom Furniture

Choose bedroom storage solutions that give you extra space while hiding what’s inside. Here are some essentials:

  • Use a dresser instead of open shelving. Unless you fold your T-shirt like a veteran Gap employee, open shelving is best left to the closet, where chaos can be concealed behind closed doors.
  • Reduce nightstand clutter by stashing nightly essentials such as hand lotion, lip moisturizer and reading glasses in the drawer and out of sight.
  • A trunk or hollow bench at the floor of the bed can store extra pillows, blankets and linens or out-of-season clothing, as well as provide an extra perch in the room.
  • Lift-up storage beds and beds with built-in drawers are great ways to put unused space to work.
  • A headboard with storage cubbies gets books and magazines off the floor and within arm’s reach.

The Best Way to Use The Bedroom Furniture

What is kept on your nightstand reveals a lot about your habits. Use the following tips to edit your bedside bedlam:

  • Choose a nightstand that supports your nightly habits. If you read a lot in bed, go for a nightstand with a shelf for books. It’s not essential that you and your partner have matching bedside tables if your needs are different.
  • Keep only things you use nightly, such as a reading lamp, alarm clock, phone, reading glasses, remotes (if you must), hand cream, a water pitcher and/or glass.
  • Relocate medications and vitamins to the kitchen and batteries to a utility closet. To encourage  undisrupted sleep patterns, keep radiation-emitting cell phones and charges away from your brain.
  • Instead of displaying trinkets, memories and odds and ends, which all add up to clutter, choose just one special piece.
  • Use a small tray to contain items such as lip balm, reading glasses and jewelry you take off at night, especially if your bedside table doesn’t have a drawer.
