Help for Tiny Bedroom in Aberdeen Flat?

Good Questions

Q: Hi. My boyfriend and I live in a very small flat in Aberdeen, Scotland. This flat is around 100 years old with Victorian features and 3m tall ceilings. It was originally a bedsit. It has now been converted into a one bed flat with separate bathroom, kitchen, hall and living room.

Our bedroom is pretty cramped — we can't put the bed in unless it's in a corner and struggle with wardrobe space:

It has a small bookcase-like alcove and a little nook where the main door opens into the room. We need the space of two double wardrobes, which we can't fit in the room as you wouldn't be able to get in. There is no room for extra furniture in the rest of the flat. How could we can maximise this bedroom to hold all of our clothing and transform it into a relaxing space? We have considered a loft bed but our budget is very tight so we need to think of something cheaper and not too invasive (rented property so we can't make too many modifications to the room). Thank you :)
