A case Study In Small Bedroom Storage Solutions
We are often asked to come up with innovative ideas for small bedroom storage solutions. By
necessity these solutions have to incorporate a bed (usually a cabin bed), a wardrobes and storage
drawers at the very least. Often our customers want even more………..
Struggling with Storage in a Small Bedroom
MRs C was struggling with a problem we see far too often here at The Cabin Bed Company…. The
small box room with a stairs bulkhead in one corner of the room making it very difficult to fit a bed
and storage space. Additionally, there is never enough floor space left in the room to feel
comfortable when moving about the bedroom.
The Storage Space Conundrum
The answer to this bed/storage space conundrum is right up our street at TCBC.
As with many of our cases this one started off in a fairly regular way. We removed the existing stairs
bulkhead in the first instance. Then we were able to build a frame system whereby we could insert a
three drawer chest and two door cabinet underneath a bed base. Towards the end of the bed we
fitted a full floor to ceiling single wardrobe to make full use of the space.
This design also includes an open book case above the headboard which would also have been
wasted space if we had not designed in this feature.
Sometimes we Need to Overcome Problems
With this particular project there was one small problem that occurred during the installation! When
we came to install the bookcase we found that the light switch would become covered and
inaccessible. We thought the best solution would be to move the light switch. Using an architrave
box we would attach the repositioned light switch to the door architrave which would give it a nice
finish without disturbing any of the existing décor.
By building our storage units floor to ceiling we not only utilised the full storage space available but
this also allowed us to be able to free up more floor space within the small box room. This meant
there was more floor space for the children to use and play in. Which we all know is exactly what
they want to do.
This job was complete in Windsor oak décor complete with block style satin handles and took us just
under two days to install. This is a typical time scale for the majority of our cabin bed projects. They
usually take around 10-12 working days to be manufactured then between 1-2days for installation. A
pretty good turnaround I am sure you will agree.
