How to maximise your bed for storage:

  • Hang your clothes on a rod behind your bed
  • Slide crates or storage underneath your bed
  • Lift up your bed and use a storage savvy platform that sits under your mattress
  • Use your bed frame to store wicker baskets in the frame as a storage spot

Smart ways to use your room for additional clothing storage:

  • Store shoes vertically e.g. a ladder can be the ultimate high-heel organiser
  • Use the corner in your room to hang your go-to-clothes from edge to edge on a rod
  • Utilise your wall as a closet to hang your clothes

Colours That Will Make Your Space Appear Bigger

“Light and bright colours make a space more reflective, maximizing any natural light in the room, while bright colors also have the ability to create the illusion of a larger space,” interior designer Abbe Fenimore. “When using light and bright hues, paint trim and doors a fresh bright white to keep the walls from closing in visually, which keeps the room feeling larger.”

Our colour recommendations:

  • Grey
  • Aqua
  • Soft pink
  • Black and white
