The Upcycled Dresser

A bedroom basic, the upcycled dresser doesn't have to look, well, recycled. Stylist Halligan Norris shows us how she gave hers panache with some tape and a little spray paint.

IKEA Hacks

By designing her Murphy bed to fit between two IKEA wardrobes, Claire Ferrante of Little Dog Vintage made affordable armoires look like custom cabinetry.

Pegs and Hooks

A peg rack, like this one from Elsie Green, is a simple solution for hanging scarves or ties and saving on drawer space.

Dressers as Bedside Tables

Limited wall space? Use dressers as bedside tables. Not only is the look classic, it doubles your storage. See more at HGTV Smart Home 2014

Bedroom Bookshelf

Nicole Balch of Making It Lovely used a black bookcase in her bedroom. The dark tone recedes into the gray walls for a quiet, serene look.

The Modern Bureau

A long bureau can offer enough storage for his-and-hers clothes. Here, the bureau’s large, chunky shape is visually balanced by the thin lines of the bench at the foot of the bed. The bedside bench multitasks as a great spot to stack a few linens or books.

A Mirrored Credenza

A Mondrian-inspired credenza fills out a sitting area and offers tons of cabinet-and-drawer storage. Perfect for stashing books — or hiding a mini-bar.

Built-In Armoire

Designer Linda McDougald set an antique French Louise Philippe armoire within custom cabinetry.

Baskets Galore

Baskets are a great place to store small items like TV remotes, mail or the contents of your purse or pockets. Stacking them in open shelves adds a warm design element.

Bookcase as Side Table

If you're a book lover, you'll love this idea. Put a bookshelf on either side of the bed. Then style it with whatever you're reading and your favorite mementos.

From Bar to TV Bureau

Designer Linda Woodrum turned a travertine-topped bar into media storage at HGTV Smart Home 2013.

Free-Standing Armoire

A pretty armoire hides everything from sweaters to your flat-screen TV. Match the scale of the armoire to the size of the room. This one is perfect for small-to-medium bedrooms. Design by SK Interiors
