Happy Tuesday everyone!
You may see the pattern if you have followed me for a while: Each Tuesday is my Tip for Tuesday series, where I offer some helpful and simple decorating tips to my readers, that will enhance and beautify their lives, and bring comfort into their homes.
This week’s simple tip is “Utilizing Under Bed Storage”.
For most of us, it is time to pack away the winter jackets and coats, and the fluffy sweaters that kept us warm during this very long, rough winter.
Or maybe you are losing the battle to clutter. It can happen so easily, and before long, clutter has taken over our homes and starts to affect our moods and the way we look at our homes.
I understand that It is not easy finding the space in an average closet or pantry, so we have to get creative with every inch of square footage in our homes. Simple solutions can work wonders for organizing our homes and make us fall in love with them all over again.
Underneath beds is the single most wasted space in a home. For the most part they are dust collectors and where you usually find items that you lost over two years ago.
Under bed storage of course is very functional, but there are great ways to make it stylish as well.
Most furniture manufacturers have caught on to this idea and are designing more and more beds with drawers and cubbies

If you cannot find exactly what you need, have one custom-built like I did in this toddlers’ room.

Plastic storage containers are a great option to store away seasonal clothing, files and Christmas decorations
Storage Bags with zipper are wonderful for sweaters and blankets. They give an airtight seal so moths can’t get to them
Crates are a very unique way to bring in storage while showing your personality and personal design style
Shoes will feel right at home with this shoe storage container
TIP: Incase your bed isn’t high enough underneath, you can add risers to the legs to raise it up at least 3″. Then hide all that unattractiveness with a nice tailored bed-skirt. Just avoid using bricks like I have seen in the past 🙂
So I encourage you to look at the space underneath your bed for storage solutions
