1. Make use of under-bed storage
Got space underneath your bed? Don’t just throw things underneath haphazardly – use clear pull-out drawers or containers so you can see everything at a glance. It’s also a great place to store luggage bags you won’t need so often. Store your winterwear inside for that annual trip to Korea or Japan, or other items that have no home.

2. Use a trolley or cart for your bedside items
A mobile trolley with two or three layers is a great versatile storage solution for virtually any part of your home, and looks super chic as well. Use it to store all your bedside necessities like your alarm clock, reading glasses and bedtime reads. You can get one from places like IKEA and Hipvan.

5. Maximise the space behind your door
Instead of a row of hooks, why not install some baskets and racks that can hold more items? Perfect for keeping your bags, scarves, shawls and other accessories neat and tidy.
6. Slip in a bedside pocket
Another great way to keep your bedside items neat without a bedside stand is with a handy caddy or pocket that hangs on the side of your bed. This solution also makes sure that you keep your bedside items to a minimum.

7. Get a mirror with hidden shelves
It’s no secret that mirrors can help enhance a space and make it look bigger. Why not kill two birds with one stone with a double-duty full-length mirror that also comes with storage compartments? It’s a handy way to store your jewellery, belts and scarves and prevent your room from looking cluttered at the same time.

8. Corral knick-knacks into trays
Having a tray on your dresser is a brilliant way to keep your smaller items like perfumes, watches and bracelets easily accessible. Of course, the tip here is to make sure you remember to place the items there, and not leave them strewn elsewhere. Also, it’s good to do a bit of spring-cleaning every couples of weeks or when you realise that the tray is starting to look a bit overcrowded.

9. Use baskets and containers in open shelves
An open shelf like this one is super versatile and great for storing all sorts of things in your bedroom. But to keep it looking neat and organised, make use of boxes, baskets and even bowls to hold your items.
