How to Increase Storage in Your Guest Bedroom

Peaceful and clean bedroom and side table


With guests arriving soon, you may be wondering how you’ll possibly be able to host them with so much stuff piled away in your spare bedroom. At Closet and Storage Concepts of Colorado we know that creating storage for everything can seem like a challenge. Luckily we’re ready to help you with these helpful tips.

Complete a Purge

The guest room often turns into overflow storage. Take some time to go through your items and discard any that you no longer need to store. Paperwork, clothes, and toys are a good place to start. Take your time to complete this step; it will not be maintainable if you rush through your items. Once you complete your cleanout, you may find that you have enough space to keep your items, you just need a few storage units to help you out.

Organizational Systems

This is where Closet and Storage Concepts of Denver, CO can help. We create space-saving options to help you make more room for life! Start with your guest closets. A custom unit can give you more efficient storage space to keep extra coats and clothes, as well as extra bed linens. With more storage space you may even find that you have extra space for your guests to store some of their items while they stay with you.

If you still need to create even more space, easy ways include using wall shelves or under the bed storage. Under the bed storage can be especially useful because your items can be hidden from view if you use a bed skirt. It’s a great way to store seasonal pieces like summer dresses, heels, and sweaters. Going vertical along your wall can save valuable floor space while increasing storage areas.

Consider adding a murphy bed if your guest room normally acts as a home office. This is common in many Denver, CO homes, especially if space is tight. A murphy bed allows you to easily transform your office into a place for visitors. The bed stows away and looks like a sleek part of your office. Plus, additional storage for office supplies can be built around the wall unit to really maximize your space when it’s being used as a home office. Wall beds are full-sized and sturdy, so they’re usually more comfortable for guests.

The guest room can be a lot of things in your home. Increasing storage space can help make it even better and really give you greater freedom to entertain and have friends and family over.
