If your sofa or your bed have some storage space underneath it, use it! If they don’t have a special spot allocated for that purpose, you can still use the space between the furniture and the floor to store a few items you don’t use so often.

Make sure to use your drawers smartly. Don’t over clutter them with things you don’t need. Be selective and use all your drawers for important things. When shopping, choose a nightstand that has at least two drawers!
