If keeping clutter at bay is becoming a problem in your bedroom, position an ottoman or trunk at the end of the bed to provide additional storage. This handy piece of furniture is ideal for stashing away spare bedding or winter coats. If you’re short on space, a slim bench will also do the trick and allow you to store boxes or rows of shoes underneath.
View your bedroom in a whole new light by cleverly positioning mirrors to open up the space. Stand a floor mirror so that it’s angled at a pretty corner of the room and reflects a key part of the interior design, such as a wallpaper or gallery wall. Use wall mirrors to bounce light coming in from the window around the room to brighten up dark corners.
