Storage Ideas for a Teen Room

Teens are famous for having messy rooms. For the neatness-challenged teen, look for everyday storage solutions that fit his personality and add a decorative punch to his room. With the right combination of a good layout, furniture that performs double duty and loads of storage space, you can create a teen room design that is both functional and inviting.


For maximum storage space and utility, nothing is better than bookshelves. Choose shelves that come in varying heights to create some visual interest. Place a small bookshelf adjacent to her bed for instant storage space. Place books, photos, computer peripherals and memorabilia in bookshelves. Wicker or plastic baskets can be filled with miscellaneous items and stored in the bookshelves.

Loft or Bunk Beds

Beds that are built as lofts in a teen room free up the entire floor space. This is turn results in the capacity for more storage space. Fill the area under the loft bed with bookshelves, a desk and a dresser. Bunk beds are another option that enables a lot of storage in a teen room. Configure a bunk bed in an "L" shape to allow for the placement of a desk or bookshelf under the raised bed. Plastic bins with wheels on the bottom are great to stow under the bed as well.

Computer Desks

Computer desks are functional storage solutions for teen rooms. Make sure the desk has plenty of drawers and tabletop space for stowing small items. Choose a desk with a built-in cubicle area for stashing papers and computer items. Alternatively, make your own computer desk with a narrow table placed against the wall. Use wicker baskets to create storage options on top of the table.

Closet Space

Fully utilise the closet space. Add shelving if necessary and built-ins to maximise storage space in a teen's closet. Use hooks to hang jackets, purses and scarves. Hang a shoe rack to store shoes and clear the floor. Add a tension-mounted curtain or shower rod beneath an existing closet rod to hang more clothing.
