Small wardrobes really can become the bane of your life, can't they? What started out as a cute little place for storing your clothes, suddenly isn't big enough or man enough for the task. Before you know it, you've got things spilling out everywhere and cluttering up your bedroom.

Well, we want to help you avoid that disastrous bedroom storage situation, so compiled some top tips for making life with a small wardrobe a little more bearable. And don't worry that you'll have to ruin a pretty bedroom as even the most discerning of interior designers will approve of our ideas!

1. Add door knobs to your walls

As a handy way to hang up tomorrow's clothes and accessories.

2. Don't forget to use those corners cleverly

At the very least they can be a goldmine for shoes!

3. These wall baskets are such a great idea

They're ideal for scarves, gloves and other accessories.

5. Cycle clothes seasonally

So you can pack away anything you won't be wearing for a few months.

6. We know this will be tough

You need to throw away any shoes that are past their best or damaged. You know you won't fix them so be ruthless!

7. Hang what you can on a wall

To free up a wealth of valuable space. Bags are an obvious choice.

8. Add sneaky storage to other parts of your bedroom

Such as a stool with a lift-up lid.

9. Only hang what you absolutely need to and fold the rest

So you only keep your day-to-day items in your bedroom.

To free up extra drawer space for t-shirts and jumper. Scarves and belts are your main offenders!

14. Force yourself to have a wardrobe audit twice a year

Discard anything you haven't worn in the last 12 months.

15. Open front shelves aren't just for books

Add some to your bedroom for a gorgeous and practical way to increase your clothing storage.

16. Transform a small spare room or box room

Into a dressing space just for you. We know this is indulgent, but you're worth it!
