1. Make more of bedside storage

Keep books, reading glasses and any night-time lotions and potions out of sight with a bedside drawer unit or cabinet. If you’re not a fan of the more traditional designs, opt for an on-trend locker style like this one, which comes with two adjustable shelves, a hook and handy cable hole. An example is this Shorty locker, £128.95,  Mustard Made at Scandiborn.

2. Add an ottoman

An extra seat when you want to do your make-up or pull on socks, ottomans are also great for stashing away everything from bedlinen to hair styling tools. Tidy away cushions and blankets in a long one at the end of the bed, or go for a smaller round design that you can tuck into a corner.

3. Dress it up

Gone are the days of unattractively bulky dressing tables, and in their place come slimline, multifunctional designs such as this. Taking its inspiration from vintage sewing boxes, it not only has a long main drawer, but two side drawers that cleverly swivel out, finished with an integrated double mirror. Try this Odie dressing table, £429,

4. Go for a clever bed frame

Beds come in many different shapes and sizes, from lift-up ottoman styles to designs with drawers. This bed frame has cubbyholes that are perfect for books, making it an easy way to gain storage without taking up extra space.

5. Utilise walls

If space is tight or you want to keep the floor furniture-free, shelves make an effortless alternative to a bedside table or as extra storage, especially if your bedroom doubles as a home office or dressing room. Choose from open or closed, with a mirror or drawer – and consider using more than one in a staggered effect for added interest. Good Homes loves this Umage Butterfly shelf, from £29.95, Sweetpea & Willow.
