Cheap Bedroom Ideas for Small Rooms – Organization
We’ve all have at least one spot in our bedroom where we toss things that don’t have an official place to go.
But no more!
From now on, every single item in your room needs to have a specific place to be.
First, it’s time to let your imagination take over.
Forget how your room looks now.
Think about how you want it to look and feel when you’re in it.
Do you want your room to feel comfy? Spacious? Minimal? Bright?
Once you have an idea of the look you’re going for, you’re on your way!
Getting good bedroom storage that reflects your wishes is the next step.

These bins make up a cheap small bedroom organization idea.
Don’t you just LOVE these clear bins!! They can be used to store just about anything!
It’s not over the top to buy dozens of them at a time because having these around makes staying organized easy peasy.

Whether bras, underwear, or socks…you need to dedicate a specific place for every item in your bedroom.
4. Back of the Door Storage
Did you know you can store things in the most unlikely places?

You can store anything from fragrances to purses, to books.
This is also a great way to store those things you don’t want to forget when leaving the house.
This sturdy pegboard wall organizer allows you to free up floor and closet space and make your room appear far less cluttered.
5. Under the Bed Storage
It’s time to put all that space under your bed to good use. Instead of finding lost clothing items, why not organize it and use it as a functional space?
Opt for some bed storage to store seasonal clothing, extra hand bags, bedding and more.
This will save you a ton of space in your closet and dresser.
The best part of storing items under your bed is that the items are accessible, yet not visible.

Its mobility makes it easy to move from room to room, making certain items accessible if you’re in recovery it just need the convenience.
8. Combine your Desk and Bedside Table
Again, if you work from home…it may seem (and actually be) impossible to fit a decent desk into your tiny bedroom if you have too many other items. But, there’s still a solution!
Use the same piece of furniture for both your bedside table and your work desk.
9. Bedside Caddy
That extra few minutes you spend searching for your phone charger, your tv remote, or your highlighter for that great book your reading are not fun after a long day.
Or when’s the last time you had a great idea late at night but stumbled around for too long looking for a pen and paper to write it down?

Categorizing your rings and other jewelry into different glass bowls gives is a stylish way to keep them organized AND make you feel like your room is your palace.

Ottomans are PERFECT for small bedrooms because they have more than one function.
They are the most versatile pieces of furniture you can have in your bedroom (or any room for that matter).

You, or your guests can sit on them.
But it also provides even more out of sight storage for anything from throws and pillows to extra blankets and linens.
Because let’s face it, seeing too many things out in the open isn’t a good look.
15. Use a Coat Rack
When I was living in my small apartment, I used a coat rack for my every day wear. I would put my coats and sweaters and clean shirts and pants on my coat rack.
These weren’t dirty and they weren’t right from the laundry so it made sense to me to put them on a coat rack.
Plus, this saves room in your small closet if you end up getting new clothes.
