It’s important to have a calm and ordered bedroom, as this promotes restful sleep and relaxation. The best way to create your zen den is through optimised storage, resulting in less clutter and a sleeker aesthetic. Here at Coast Creative we offer any combination of open storage, shelves, hanging space and drawers, on display or out-of sight. Finished to the highest standard and using only the best hardware or creating handles and pulls ourselves, in-house, adding a unique flourish to your space. Read on to discover a few of our favourite interior design bedroom storage tips. 


Walk-in or built-in wardrobes are a great way of creating the maximum amount of storage. As both are bespoke to your bedroom, you can rest easy knowing that every inch of space is optimised, and we can even take into consideration your own personal needs. For example, if you own lots of pairs of shoes, incorporate a low-lying shoe rack or shelves in the wardrobe space. Double and single tiered hanging systems based upon your requirements utilise space well. Use the double tiered section to hang shirts and skirts, whilst a full length compartment can house long dresses and trench coats.

Include shelving and hooks for hats, soft-close drawers for t-shirts and jeans, and rails for dresses and suits. Consider what you own and make sure this is incorporated into the design.

Shelving and Drawers 

Once again, the best option for drawer storage is built-in and bespoke. That way any alcoves within your bedroom can be filled with open shelving, and you don’t have bulky furniture taking up valuable space. Whether you opt for open shelves to show off your favourite items, or you like drawers and cupboards to keep things looking neat and ordered, we can create storage solutions that are tailored to your needs. 

Compartmentalise drawers using baskets and boxes to simplify your storage, making it easy to navigate. You can use this technique for anything from socks and underwear to charging cables and jewellery. 

Longline, high shelves are a great way to keep breakable bits away from grabby hands, plus they look really stylish mounted on top of wall cladding. Store smaller items, books and seldom-used things out of reach but still in sight. 


There a few clever bed hacks you can use to create more space and storage, which is especially important in smaller rooms. Divan beds allow you to store bedding, seasonal clothing, boots, books and more underneath the mattress in easily accessible drawers. To really utilise space under the bed, you could opt for a bespoke, elevated frame (this works especially well in children’s and guest bedrooms) to make room for two layers of sliding drawers or cupboards. 

Another option is to create your bed-end from units that are the same height and width as the mattress. These can be open shelves or cupboards with doors, and maximise a space that would previously be unusable. Paint the cupboards the same colour as the headboard to tie the whole thing together. On a similar note, we can create bespoke headboards for the bed to sit against which double as shelving, with cubby-holes dedicated to your most reached for bedtime items. 

A bedside table that is free of clutter is an integral component in a calm room. Achieve this by using shelves or drawers to house books, eye masks and other night time routine bits and bobs.
