Bedroom Organization: 16 Hidden Storage Solutions

Need help organizing a bedroom? You can declutter your sleeping space and maximize the room you have with some clever storage solutions and popular bedroom decorating ideas. Check out these 16 hidden bedroom storage ideas to get started!

Utilize Under-the-Bed Storage

The space under your bed is a prime spot for storing things in your bedroom! Use storage baskets, rolling storage bins, or pull-out drawers underneath the bed frame to hide shoes, clothes, suitcases, and more.

Want more storage in a small bedroom? Build your own storage bed! Whether you choose to build a lift-up storage bed frame or pull-out drawers, storage beds are perfect for adding built-in hidden storage space where you can stash extra blankets and pillows or seasonal clothing.

Create a Trundle Bed

If you need an extra bed in a guest bedroom or kids bedroom, but you don’t want to have it out in the open all the time, a DIY trundle bed is a great option. This hidden bedroom feature allows you to pull out a sleeping space whenever it’s needed and neatly hide it away when it’s not!

Incorporate a Storage Bench

Wondering where to keep blankets, pillows, sheets, and other bedroom linens? Get a bench with hidden storage! Not only does having a storage bench give you a place to conveniently keep bedding in your bedroom, but it also provides a spot for you to sit down and put on your shoes while you’re getting dressed!

Go with a Built-In Wardrobe

If you don’t have a closet in your bedroom, consider creating a DIY fitted wardrobe! This allows you to build a custom space along a wall of your room where you can add hidden storage for clothes, accessories, and shoes. You can even go the extra mile by adding pull-out shelves and drawers for a more organized closet!

Hide Items in an Armoire

This versatile bedroom furniture can come with a combination of hanging storage, shelf storage, and drawer storage to meet your needs. Can’t find an option you like? Design your own DIY armoire!

Get Creative with Closet Door Storage

Utilize the space on the inside a closet door for a simple way to hide items in a bedroom! Hang hooks, racks, or collapsible organizers on the back of a bedroom closet door to store coats, scarves, shoes, purses, and more.

Use Cube Storage in an Open Closet

If your bedroom closet doesn’t have doors, one way you can add hidden closet storage is with a cube shelf and storage baskets or bins. Cube storage allows you to stack shelves and keep items like purses, scarves, sunglasses, shoes, kids toys, books, and more hidden away in cubbies!

Add Small Drawers for Accessories

Not sure where to store small accessories like jewelry, sunglasses, and watches in your bedroom closet? Add accessory drawers! These storage drawers can be build into existing shelves or closet cabinets and make it easy to keep small items organized and out of the way so they don’t get lost or take up valuable surface space!

Hang Floating Drawers
