It’s time to hide all the warm clothes until next autumn and winter. But where to hide all the winter things, so that they retain their appearance and at the same time do not interfere with the summer ones? For your attention a selection of ideas on how and where it is better to store winter things in the warm season in your bedroom.
Dressing rooms and pantries
We are all familiar with these traditional storage rooms. With the only amendment – not all apartments have dressing rooms. But, there are storage rooms in almost every apartment, and you can easily turn it into a small dressing room. The main thing is to make correct calculations for the layout of the shelves..
You can see our article on the topic «How to use the shelving in the interior», which describes the optimal design dimensions for built-in shelving.
Where is the best place to store winter clothes in the dressing room? Of course, on the upper shelves and mezzanines, in closed boxes that are on the upper level. That is, in any distant places of the dressing room. For best preservation, place items in plastic and cardboard boxes, and don’t forget lavender moth bags. It is also very convenient vacuum bags, the air from which is drawn out by a vacuum cleaner – in this case, you will save a lot of space, because in such a bag things decrease in volume by 2-3 times.
Using all these containers, put things in them, and hide them away. Outerwear must be pre-cleaned in a dry-cleaner, so as not to have any problems with this in the fall. Arrange winter things so that conditionally «middle» the row was free for spring things. Thus, you will not constantly bump into unnecessary warm things, and they, in turn, will wait for the next season in the best possible way..
Perhaps the most traditional and well-known keeper of things. At times, a well-designed wardrobe can be more convenient than a walk-in closet. If you have an entire wall dedicated to a closet, you can completely fill it with shelves from wall to wall, and all the way to the ceiling. In this case, you will have a sea of shelves for winter clothes. We also suggest placing them on the top shelves in various boxes or resealable bags. The principle is the same as in dressing rooms..
Chests and chests
Chests are versatile furniture, as things are stored inside, and the table top can play different roles – a shelf for decor, lava for sitting, etc. Another advantage of dressers and chests is the fact that they are always in sight, but at the same time they are not constantly used..
That is, the bride’s dowry, inheritance to children, gifts for future holidays have been kept in them for a long time. This type of furniture is conducive to long-term storage of things. This means that you can easily place your winter wardrobe there..
The top shelf in the chest of drawers can be left under linen, for example, and the rest can be taken up with sweaters and sweaters. If you do not really like the appearance of the chest, you can cover it with a tablecloth or bedspread, and then it will not be visible at all.
Captain’s bed with drawers
Captain’s bed (captain’s bed or cabin bed) is a bed with an additional platform, in which drawers are built in two, and sometimes three, rows. This bed is often slightly taller than regular beds and provides additional storage space. The captain’s bed is an ideal space-saving solution for storing bed linen, children’s toys, books and clothes.
Storage space in raised beds
Our regular readers know that keeping clothes inside the bed, in which you walk on the street, is against the rules of Feng Shui. But for those who are not worried about the impact of such things, drawers in the bed can be a great help for winter jackets and sweaters. Of course, the boxes are designed together with the bed, after installing it, there is no point in changing anything..
If you are still worried about the feng shui of your bedroom, we advise you to place warm winter blankets and blankets in these boxes, and again vacuum bags for storing things will come in handy, as they will greatly reduce the volume of these things.
