Chicago Furniture Tips: Make the Most of Your Bedroom Storage

Bedroom Storage


Bedrooms can be small, and Chicago furniture can be large. Too large. Way too large. Like all that can fit in your room is your bed. No dresser, no desk, no room to open your closet door. That’s why you need to learn to make the most of your bedroom furniture. We all need clothes, after all. No shirt, no shoes, no room to store your shirts or shoes.

Wrightwood Furniture has your back, as you well know by now. And because we’re Lakeview’s resident furniture lovers, you also know that we advocate for more dressers, tables, chairs, and decor in all spaces—but especially in bedrooms. We’ve selected three of our favorite storage pieces that would work in your unique space, whether big, small, or virtually non-existent. Let’s get into it, shall we?

For the indecisive.

No one likes to have the same bedroom furniture layout all the time. We’re human, we like variety. For those decorators who get antsy, the Invar Factory Chest is for you. It has wheels—easily movable—and with six spacious drawers… say hello to storage space. So easy, so beautiful, so coming home with you after your next trip to Wrightwood.

For the closet-less.

If you don’t have a bedroom closet to yourself in your Chi-Town digs, don’t feel bad. You’re one of probably most Chicagoans who have nowhere to put their clothing. Living out of a suitcase is not fun, especially when it’s at your own home. The Louvre Sideboard can act as a quasi-closet if you use the top three drawers for your smaller items, and stack bulkier pieces behind the doors at the bottom. Plus, if topped with a mirror, this piece would make a great vanity as well. Luckily, we have mirrors in stock too (hint, hint).

For the organizer.

If you love to shop for organizational materials (think: baskets, bins, and label makers), the Chewi Console is begging to be included in your bedroom furniture collection. The three top drawers allow you to hide your personal items, while the open bottom lets you show off those pretty new labeled baskets you learned how to make on Pinterest. The handcrafted piece is beautiful enough to stand on its own, but we’re sure you know just the trick to spruce it up to fit your unique decorating style.

You want to buy all three? We thought you’d say so. But as much as we’d love to find all three of the one-of-a-kind Wrightwood Furniture store pieces a Chicago home, we also know that you need some breathing room. And space for a bed. After all, it’s not called a “dresser room.”
