Small Bedroom Space Saver Tips

So many of the new homes have really small bedrooms. It seems that the master bedroom is a decent size but the other bedrooms seem to pay the price. Like many people, I have a decent size master bedroom but my other bedrooms are small. In order to make the bedroom appear larger, I needed to save some space.

Save space in a bedroom by buying a twin-sized bed with the drawers located directly underneath This bed with drawers will eliminate the need for a chest of drawers. You can create a more spacious look in your bedroom with build-in bookshelves with cabinets instead of freestanding shelving.

Here is a room set that I did to show my customer how she could save space in her daughter's small bedroom. Shop for the blue home accessories are shown in the room set here.

.Another way to save space is to buy a raised bed that has a built-in desk underneath. These raised beds look like bunk-beds only there isn’t a lower bed. Kids seem to love this bed ensemble.

My niece had a really small bedroom so her Dad created a loft sleeping area for her. He then created a study area underneath the loft. By raising the bed to the loft area her bedroom was more spacious.

My sister saved space in her small bedroom by installing a Murphy Bed. When the bed is locked into the wall your room will look very spacious. My sister has her office in that room along with a potted palm tree and a comfy chair. When she needs the room for guest she will utilize the Murphy bed.

When shopping for furniture select a small frame bed and a nightstand as large furniture would make the room look less spacious.

Buy plastic storage containers and put a few on the top shelf of the closet for past season clothing. This will free up space in the drawers and your clothes that are hanging will not look cramped.

Well those are some ideas that I thought I would share with all of you on how to save space in a small bedroom.

Floral Tote Bags / My Zazzle Top Picks

When it comes to choosing my Zazzle top picks for tote bags I find that I prefer warm-season styled bags. I also tend to shop for durable bags that can be used every day and for grocery shopping. I find these bags to be useful to my needs.

This fashion set features one of my tote bag designs. This particular style allows you to add your monogram.

Warm season tote bags can be used throughout the spring and summer season. I like floral prints and because they are perfect for gift giving and the florals are colorful and go with many outfits.

In the past, I have bought a few tote bags from Zazzle. The bags are all quality-made bags that are durable. You can use them for every day or take the bag to the beach, pool, or use them for shopping at the mall or grocery store.

I shopped at and found some beautiful floral tote bags. All bags shown were created by independent designers. Each tote shown is bursting with colorful flower blooms and the bags feature a unique design. Know that when you buy a tote bag at Zazzle that each tote bag is printed when you order it, not mass produced like shops do at the mall.

The tote bags come in a variety of sizes so you can choose the right size for your needs. A larger size will hold your laptop, tablet, groceries and more. A small bag is perfect for your everyday things, cosmetics bag, phone, tablet, and your wallet.

Here are a few of my favorite tote bags. Click on the blue text below the image to be rerouted to the designer's store. There you can see the bag on a larger screen and learn more about the tote. It may be difficult to choose just one so buy one for yourself and another for your daughter or your friend. Tote bags that can be used every day for your miscellaneous things can also be used for shopping or for traveling.
