A built-in wardrobe may be the solution to all your storage woes, but if that's not possible then you may have to think about alternatives to your clothing storage, especially in the bedroom. In this homify feature, we look at 6 easy ideas that can quickly be incorporated into your home, regardless of space. So whether it's a full-on dressing room you require, or some extra hidden storage for a tidier interior, our team have your covered!

1. Raise the bed

The space beneath a bed is often forgotten, so consider placing yours higher and creating ample storage for anything from shoes to those winter sheets.

2. Curtains fall

Include some luxurious floor sweeping curtains into your bedroom and create your own nifty dressing room with a funky eclectic appeal.

3. For the small apartment

So you live in a studio or one bedroom apartment and you need space for everything from your home office to your book collection, well this is a fantastic alternative to decor. It can also be a creative design and layout choice for your teen, so they never have an excuse to not study again.

4. Chest of drawers

Opt for a simple wooden chest of drawers to keep your belonging neat, tidy and out of sight. Repurpose one from your grandma's house for a vintage decor element, or choose something sleek and modern for a sophisticated home.

5. Minimalist
