Space Saving Ideas For Small Bedrooms

space saving ideas small bedrooms

Many of us are not blessed with spacious bedrooms, we have to make do with little cubbies that sometimes barely fit a bed. While that does certainly suck, there is something to be said for simplicity and using space saving ideas in small bedrooms. If you do the room up right you will still have plenty of space for the items that really matter.

Space saving ideas for small bedrooms


If you want to make a room look and feel bigger than it is, the easiest way to do that is with mirrors. They will make walls not look like walls and give the room the feeling of spaciousness that it so desperately needs.

Mounted nightstand

These are a great way to give yourself a little more space. You can put your shoes or slippers under the mounted nightstand and not have to worry about tripping on them in the middle of the night.

Wall shelves

You probably don’t use as much shelf space as you think in your room and if it’s a tight squeeze in there, there is no reason to have a full shelving system. All it will do is take up space and give the room a cramped feel and something tells me you’re going for the opposite effect with space saving ideas.

High shelves

These take wall shelves to a whole new level. They give you a place for things like books or board games and still gives the room an open feel.

Mounted mini-shelf

These take up even less room than the mounted nightstands do so they make a great addition to small bedrooms.

If you have items that you don’t want to throw out but you can’t fit in your current home, whether it’s because of small bedrooms or a small home in general, give Valet Storage a call. We can help.

How to stage an empty house on a budget

Packing For Storage vs Moving

packing for moving vs storage

We often get asked how packing for storage is different than packing for moving house and the answer is there isn’t an enormous amount of difference between the two. There are, however, some key points you should know when it comes to packing for storage vs moving.

Three points for packing for storage vs moving:

ONE: This applies to both but it is important enough that we feel it bears repeating: Always pack efficiently and safely regardless of the reason you are moving things from one place to another. That means never overstuffing boxes or putting too many heavy things in the same box. The same is true for bags, you don’t want them to rip.

TWO: If you are packing for storage you might want to stay away from bags because you are storing them for some time whereas when moving you are only going to be leaving them in the bag for a short period. Plastic bags such as garbage bags tend to be more prone to mold and mildew which can lead to unpleasant smelling contents.

THREE: When loading up the truck you are going to use to transport your items to storage, whether you are doing it yourself or hiring someone like Valet Storage to help you, you should pay attention to what goes in the truck last. Remember, this will be what is at the front of your storage unit. This could be important if you think you will want to visit your unit and get certain items such as seasonal decorations.

Now that you have a handle on packing for storage vs moving, you are ready to choose the company you will be using. If you live in the Greater Toronto Area you can give Valet Storage a call at 1-888-670-6794. We would be happy to answer any and all of your questions right over the phone.
