{interior design} New Bedroom

It's been just over a year since I last shared photos of my room [see here]. Since then things have changed a lot. I changed my bed to a loft bed so I could get more storage, so the room looks a little more cramped and less airy but there is a lot more space.  Tomorrow I'll share some detail shots since I took too many pictures.

To maximize the space in my tiny (barely 9x8ft) room I use a lot of storage units.  My bed is lofted with shelving and, rather than making the second bed that came with the set (to go underneath), I put my shoe bookshelf and cute cabinet I scored at Marshalls to get even more space.  Then I have my other large shelving unit (IKEA), small green dresser (from Home Goods) and larger dresser - it's actually a baby changing table, the top folds down, but I use it as two shelves to get more surface area.

We also took the doors off my closet and use a curtain as a separator to avoid needing to open doors, which take up a lot of room.  It's all about using every bit of floor and wall space when you have a small room.  If I had the money/wasn't lazy I would install a pocket door so I don't have to worry about swing room for the door.

  3. It looks like you have so much more storage room this way! That means more shoes, right?! :)

  4. You've certainly managed to maximize your small space - because who wants to get rid of things? Not I!

  7. You've really maximized the space you have to work with! I love that you get to sleep in a top bunk ; )

  8. Your room is SO well organised! What great use of space (and how tidy you keep it). I also use a pile of vintage suitcases for extra storage as they look good stacked up and fit in a remarkable amount of my overflowing stuff.

  9. I definitely remember you always saying you had no space for anything in your bedroom! Going for a loft bed was a very good decision!

  10. I adore that there are clothes and accessories tucked away in every nook. :-) It's hard to find places for everything in such a small space, but you've done really well.
