Before & After: Double Your Bedroom Closet Space

Young House Love

Two people. Small house. Small bedroom. Really small closet. What does that mean? Lots of cramming shirts into drawers, chairs overflowing with extra jackets. You get the picture. What can you do to substantially increase bedroom clothes storage?

Even with underbed storage and a decent sized dresser, the options are limited because adding more furniture can make a bedroom feel cramped and unrestful. The clever folks at Young House Love were faced with a bedroom storage deficit. What did they do? Their solution is ingenious, inexpensive and DIY!

They bought two IKEA wardrobes for either side of the bed, hung curtains in front and attached bedside lighting to the wall. And… ta-da! They now have a nice little sleeping nook and a TON of new clothes storage. Very smart and very cozy.
