To help make your life a little easier (and a whole lot more organized), we rounded up 30 of our favorite small bedroom storage and design solutions. From wall-mounted shelves to swing arm sconces, these clever ideas are all designed to maximize a storage-deprived space — no matter how little square footage you’re working with.

1. Go with a Ghost Chair

The greatest thing about Ghost chairs—a.k.a. clear acrylic ones—is that visually, they are so light, you barely see them (i.e. less visual clutter). Not only are they super stylish—they won’t further cramp up your tiny bedroom.

2. Floating Shelves

Turn even the tightest bedroom corner into a streamlined storage display with nothing more than a few wall-mounted floating shelves.

3. Work a Room Divider

Don’t technically have a separate bedroom? A bookcase that doubles as a room divider can work wonders for a cramped studio. It’ll designate your sleeping space, but also the space between your books and decor is enough to let light stream in.

4. Consider Hanging Racks

Hanging garment racks are a clever way to score more closet storage (or create a closet out of nowhere) without taking up an inch of floor space. A dresser underneath creates the perfect dressing area.

5. Consider a Swing Arm Sconce

If you’ve been searching for a stylish way to bring more lighting into your cramped bedroom (without taking up too much space), consider swing-arm wall sconces. Not only are they much less bulky than most table lamps and pendants, these wall-mounted wonders are designed with adjustable arms for a more space-savvy lighting solution.

6. Leaning Layered Art Looks Good

If you’re an art lover but lacking the space to show off your treasured works in your bedroom, a shelf or nightstand layered with framed art can make a big impact without wasting any space.

Get Creative With Shelving

When every bit of wall space counts, why not try shelving that doubles as art? A cool hanging shelf allows you to store (and show off) your favorite trinkets and display your beloved baubles, and won’t take up an inch of floor space.

8. Accessorize Away

Karen's Imported Glass Rainbow

When you don’t have the room for large-scale bedroom furnishings, consider going big with your decor—think: bold throw pillows, colorful art, and layered textiles.

9. Floating Desk

Who says you need a big bedroom to create your own workspace? A wall-mounted shelf beautifully doubles as a personal desk and mounts directly to your wall for added efficiency.

10. Consider a Modern Murphy Bed

Forget your grandmother’s Murphy bed. A foldout bedframe—like this one in Daniel’s NYC studio—is a clever way to conceal bulky furniture in your tiny apartment space.
