8. 3 Creative Bed Designs for Small Bedroom and 3 DIY Creative Shelving ideas

1. Ceiling Storage For Bed
BedUp Vision via SimphomeMost are familiar with the Murphy bed, which allows users to fold it against the wall when it is not in use. While this most definitely saves space, having your bed on the ceiling will give you the maximum amount of square footage of your room.

Though its origins are from a French manufacturer, the idea in place is essentially a pulley system for the mattress and frame. Do not be intimidated by the notion, as installation isn’t nearly as complicated as it sounds, with Ikea now dipping its toes into this forum.

Tip: If you decide this route is for you, use a preexisting frame by BedUp (or a similar competitor) that raises and lowers the mattress but still gives you the freedom to determine sleeping height.

2. Compact Living Style Storage Bed by Yesul Jang
Compact Living Style Storage Bed by Yesul Jang via simphomeGraduate Yesul Jang was the original mind behind the millennial bed that is raised to waist level so items like dorm room accessories can all fit underneath, as sort of a makeshift bunk bed of practicality.

Additionally, a fabric curtain can cover your belongings so that they are not in view at all times. In using such a curtain, they are cheap and quick to replace if they incur damage. Because statistically sleeping space and storage take up the most real estate in a dwelling, it is a natural blend to pair them in the same square footage.

3. A DIY Hidden Roll Out Bed

Rearranging furniture is enough to give anyone a headache, and never is this more true than shifting beds. Their cumbersome size and stature will make you tear your hair out, but fresh ideas have come to fruition on how to make hiding them more practical.

One such solution is an accordion style panel of wooden strips that are each connected by hinges on both ends. In essence, the platform folds into a drawer, with one piece of wood folding on top of another as if you are stacking them. When the drawer is pulled out, the wooden frame of the bed pulls flat, with the hinges flush making a level surface for the mattress. That’s it. | Source 1, 2.

Next, you’re going to learn the 3 Creative Shelving Videos, but before that, I am giving you a video gallery related to our topic. This is 100+ ideas how to convert your limited bedroom to a calming sanctuary

1. A DIY Scandinavian Style Nightstand

If your goal is to bring more neutral colors into the flow of your room, you may want to try a Scandinavian style nightstand. Using 10 pieces of unfinished, non-stained wood, a beautiful and simple creation can be brought to life. The wood components include a top sized appropriately at 14″ by 18,” along with a bottom 13.25″ by 18.”

With a front and back measuring 6.75″ X 16.5″ the dimensions will create a desk looking nightstand that has the ideal width for one drawer. The length houses a lamp and clock without looking cluttered or distracting.

2. Moebe Large Shelving System
If you do not have the skills and patience with a set of tools, and would prefer to keep your large living areas organized, the Moebe large shelving format is prudent. Capable of taking up an entire wall, the system utilizes wooden wedges to keep shelves from moving. Rounded steel uprights connect to the shelves in seconds by being placed through the pre-drilled holes.

Black stained ash wood and oiled oak offer two diverse palettes to blend in to any setting. The Moebe approach is the most painless experience possible start to finish to consolidate messy rooms fluidly without brackets, glues and other frustrating elements that slow you down.

3. Flexible Shelving System from Benjamin Hubert

Differing from the Moebe shelving system is the Benjamin Hubert inspired flexible alternative known as ‘Shift.’ The idea behind its foundation is derived from retail outlets, who are in frequent need of swapping out their displays. The genius of the setup is that magnetic panels are mounted to the wall, with shelves having the capability to be moved at the drop of a hat.

This process can be done at home, by lining each shelf with a magnet on the bracket that will hold it in place on the panels. With both the base and shelf boards connecting by these magnets, changing the style and appearance of the furniture can be accomplished in seconds.

Put the rack about 6 ft. off the floor and attach it to the wall studs with lag screws. If you have children, attach an eye screw and hook to secure them.
TIP: Make your slot wide enough and the handle is usually narrower than the flare.

5. Harness the Versatility of a Pegboard.
5. Harness the Versatility of a Pegboard via Simphome
In case you didn’t know, pegboards have been around since the 1800’s. For the most part, because of their flexibility, they have starred in any reorganization ideas.
Buy some pegboards and wire pegs at your local home depot. To make things easier, use specific zones, like tools, small items, etc. It’s a brilliant way to store undersized stuff. It improve your safety because you don’t have to dig in a plastic bin and risk your hands.

A transparent bin will be a groovy choice; you save a lot of time and stress in finding your pearl.

3. Store Them Close to the Ceiling.
3. Store Them Close to the Ceiling via Simphome
Wait a minute, what if my garage has diminutive size? Here’s your answer: make the most of your ceiling! There are two possibilities. If it has exposed rafters, turn it into a useful storage by setting a few sheets of plywood across the rafters to create a room for your items. But, if it is a finished drywall, there are many options without bringing the finish down. You may install a pulley system that grants you an access in raising and lowering selected items just by pressing a button. It sounds good, doesn’t it?

2. A Bump-Out Addition for More Storage Space.
2. A Bump Out Addition for More Storage Space via Simphome
Do you deem that your garage is too small? On the other hand, you need a little more space for lawn equipment, ATVs, riding mowers or bikes. At this point, a bump-out addition may be the smart elucidation to your clogged garage. You don’t need to pour concrete, just build it like a deck platform. With this simple treated-wood foundation, you create an additional room in your garage.

Lastly number 1. Decide the Zone.
1. Decide the Zone via Simphome
Go to any mall or department stores and you will find particular zones. It simplifies customers to get items they need. It is exactly what we’re going to do. Countless items in your garage may scatter your brain. Therefore, organize it into several zones. For a greenhorn, you may consider these:

• Gardening Zone
• Kids’ Zone
• Workshop Zone
• Tools
• Automotive
• Paint/Home Projects, etc.
You can think as small or as big as you want to. Once you have everything sorted, you need to assess on how much space each zone is going to take up and then plan fittingly.
One last tip: we recommend re-organizing your garage twice a year, in October/September and June.

So, That’s all we have in our tank. It’s time to part way with your clumsy garage and make your cherished car proud to “live” there. Au revoir!

10. Show Your Artistic Side with Ombre Wall via Simphome
Ombre is a look that you can apply almost everywhere on everything, let’s say clothes, shoes, hair, make up even as a wall decoration. Although this trend has been known for ages but it never stops mesmerizing our eyes.
As I’ve already mentioned, this aesthetic design can be applied on your bedroom walls to get some cozy look. To get this look, you will need at least two different colors that can be blended well, paint brushed, primed, and taped.
First, prime the wall with white primer and let it dry completely. This is to prepare a surface where paint can perfectly adhere to and seal out any discoloration from the wall. Next, divide the wall into three horizontal sections using a tape then start coloring. You can make more horizontal sections to get more transition colors for gradual fade ombre, especially, if you use two different colors that contrast each other.

Start with painting the top and the bottom part of the sections with each color and let them dry. You can go either from dark to light or vice versa. Next, mix the two colors and splash it to the middle sections. Be sure the tape has been removed. Before the paint dry, quickly blend it to the color on the top using dry paint brush. Then with another clean brush, blend the middle to the bottom of the wall.

9. Show off the Accent Wall via Simphome
A small bedroom doesn’t have to be monochrome and leave the walls plain. Sometimes adding accent walls will give different vibes to the room.
A room normally has four walls. If you find a wall with different design from the others, it’s called an accent wall. By applying accent wall, you have a chance to use a bolder color without overwhelming the room. Another good thing of accent wall is it creates a focal point that will drag people’s attention instantly.
Although it has some advantages, using the wrong colors on the wall may create a look you didn’t expect. So, if you choose to paint your accent wall, go darker from the other walls. This is one of the safest choices you can go with. You can also just skip the painting and use patterned wallpaper instead.

However, some homeowners aren’t lucky as they only have little – or even no – space to grow plants.
Don’t let small space become a great obstacle for you to get the curb appeal that you have been longing for. Next, I’ve summed up for you 10 DIY flower garden ideas and containers which are perfect for any garden despite its size. As always, this list is compiled for you by simphome.com.

Recycling waste around you is the best way to get what you need on the cheap as well as saving the earth. If you have some unused or broken laundry baskets at home, don’t throw them away in the trash can as they can make great planters for your beautiful flowers.
Turning a laundry basket into a planter is such an easy project. The first thing you need to do is taped up any crack that you find in your broken laundry basket. Then, cover the slats of the basket, so the dirt that you’re going to add into it will stay in place. After that, wrap one or two pieces of burlap around the basket until it is completely covered. Attach a rope around the basket to accentuate its look, and tie a knot.
Now, your planter is ready to host your beautiful flowers.

9. DIY Headboard Flower Bed idea

Are you an apartment dweller who has no space for a garden? You can try to make this flower bed.
Again, this idea entails unused items which will make you get a fabulous planter in an affordable price. First, you need to get two headboards. If you don’t have any, try to find it in a flea market near you.
You’re going to need to cut one of the headboards, so one of them is shorter than the other. Then, you can begin to make a box that will be used to hold the dirt and flowers. Make sure that the bottom of the box has some holes for perfect drainage. Therefore, you might want to opt for slats for the bottom. Once the box is ready, attach it to the taller headboard.

Then, take the legs of the shorter headboard, and attach them to both sides of the box. Paint the box and back board red while the legs yellow to cheer up your balcony. Even if your plants are not in flower, the cheery red and yellow will set a tone for your small garden or balcony immensely.

Sometimes living in urban areas gives you no choice but to get by with the limited space. As a result, you cannot have a beautiful flower garden that you have been dreaming of as the entryway is completely paved. Although you have no yard to grow some plants, you can still purchase some containers to make your dream come true.
This porch, for example, is small yet attractive. It sports a number of small containers with some geraniums and impatiens, welcoming you or your guests with a great hospitality. They line up on the left side, allowing people to adore them without blocking their way. The ivy grown across the front door emphasizes the dramatic look of the entrance.

Let the glue dry before spray painting them. Once the paint and glue dry, you can grow your plants there and let them amaze you while you are having a respite in the porch after having a lot on your plate.
