Space-Savvy Bedroom Shelving

Floating modular units are currently a favorite among homeowners as they help you in creating additional storage space whenever needed. If you fall on the messy side of the spectrum, then you can opt for closed floating cabinets in the bedroom to give it a more organized appeal. Those wanting to fashion a lovely display inevitably would pick the floating modular shelves that are shaped like a box or ones that are much simpler and sleek.

In the small modern bedroom, cabinets and wardrobes that blend in with the walls and more or less disappear into the backdrop are almost a must. White and lighter shades of gray come in handy here along with custom cabinets that have a handle-less design. Wardrobes with mirrored doors also are a great way to brighten the tiny bedroom even while giving you a smart mirror in the corner!
