My teen daughter has a VERY small bedroom and I would like to organize it for her. Any ideas?

Small bedrooms can be a challenge, but there is one thing – or maybe four – that you have on your side – walls. If you’re tight on space, use your walls to strategically mount shelving and hooks. You’ll keep the floor clear and be able to find what you’re looking for.

But, wait! Walls aren’t your only vertical friends, so are the backs and insides of doors. They’re the perfect place to mount over the door shoe organizers, which, by the way, can be used for lots of things besides shoes. Think hair paraphernalia, socks, scarves, gloves, belts, jewelry, or even nail polish.
Also consider using double hanging rods inside her closet to maximize on the space in there.

Your daughter may need to keep some things under her bed in storage containers (don’t forget to label!) or choose furniture that has drawers built in at the bottom. Some beds also come with functional headboards. The storage areas in the headboard could take the place of a nightstand and be used for keeping books, an alarm clock, or mobile phone.

Remember to limit the number of pieces of furniture so that the room feels bigger and is easier to move around in.
