If you have many accessories, such as scarves, hats and even necklaces, hooks are a great way to keep your bedroom looking orderly, while maintaining easy access to these items. The hooks will come in handy especially during winter, when jackets and coats seem to take over the home, cluttering up every sofa, chair and table.

2. Bookshelf space

Just because the bedroom is small, doesn't mean that you cannot incorporate any storage that fits perfectly into the space. Consider making use of the shelves in your room for an open plan closet look. Store your underwear and other essentials in easy to slide organising boxes, and your bedroom will look tidy and chic.

3. Old fashion drawers

If you don't want to buy any new organising and storage items, then consider giving a facelift to your old chest of drawers, making it look a bit more attractive and elegant again. You'll save money and store your items perfectly too.

4. The portable option

A portable storage unit is great if your bedroom is really tiny, and doesn't have any built in cupboards. This item fits into any space and has drawers, a rail for shirts and even space for other essentials. The excellent mobile design by the professionals at Studio Moritz von Helldorff is a must-have in a studio apartment.

5. Under the bed

One of the most neglected storage spaces in modern homes is the area beneath the bed. Opt for a base that has built-in drawers to store your shoes, extra pillows and blankets or even winter sheets, and your closet will never look cluttered again.

6. Closet choice

Building a closet inside your room may just be the best way to utilise unused space, and hide the mess that is your clothing situation, all within arms reach in your bedroom.

7. Racks

If you have an existing closet, but you're looking to get organised, then it may be time to invest in some racks and shelves. These items will designate space for certain items of clothing, allowing your clothing to be easily accessible and in your line of sight.

8. Fitted
