Aside from being our sleeping space, the bedroom also serves as storage area for our clothes, shoes, books, and other belongings. Sometimes, having a cabinet isn't enough to control the clutter in the bedroom. To solve this problem, most of us install extra shelves or add baskets and bins.

If you are thinking of investing in more storage must-haves, you also need to think about where you can place them. One of the easiest places to pack away clothes is under the bed. Fold clothes into good-quality storage boxes and segregate bottoms, tops, and outer layers into different containers for easy identification. Here are three must-have picks that you may also want to consider:

Wheeled Storage

Choose storage pieces with wheels so you can easily pull them out and prevent floor scratches! You can even create your own mobile storage. Just simply attach wheels to storage boxes with ¾-inch-thick plywood boards, screws, and hardware-bought casters, and you’re good to go!

Neutral Storage Bins

If your bedroom has a rustic or tropical style, you can choose storage bins that can moonlight as decor pieces, too. Neutral-colored and woven baskets are ideal choices.

Plastic Storage Bins

Plastic containers are one of the most common organizers found in your home! If you have extra containers from your kitchen, recycle them and use them to store your scarves or accessories. Pick pieces in light colors to add a refreshing touch to your bedroom.
