If you are looking to create more space in your home, then look no further than your bed. It’s a fairly large item that can take up a lot of space in a room. Luckily, you can utilize the space underneath that no one sees! You can easily place small risers under your bed that will loft it slightly without making it too hard to get into. Instantly, you will have extra storage space. If you are wondering what kinds of items you should put underneath the bed, take a look at a few suggestions below.
Shoes are awkwardly shaped and take up a significant amount of storage space. If you are having issues finding room in your closet, you may create more space if you remove your shoes. Try placing your shoes under your bed instead. You do not have to put them far in where they cant be reached; you could create a ring of shoes around the outside edge under the bed. That way, you can access your shoes easily and keep them tucked away at the same time.
Rolled Up Rugs
If you have area rugs that you are not using, you may struggle to find a spot to store them. Fortunately, if you roll them up, they should fit conveniently under your bed. You might even be able to fit two or three rolled-up rugs under your bed depending on size. If you feel like the area rug is sticking out from under the bed slightly, you may want to experiment by positioning the rug diagonally or against the wall.
Sliding Storage Boxes
If you have a bunch of books, clothes or other items you would like to get out of the way, consider placing them under the bed. Use sliding drawers or storage boxes on wheels. These options come in many shapes and sizes and will roll conveniently under your bed. Then, if you need to access those items later, you simply need to pull the box out again. Using sliding storage can be a convenient way for you to keep items out of the way while still being able to access them easily.
