And while a walk-in closet is the stuff of dreams, the reality is very often a too-small wardrobe that's packed to the brim, with rails loaded with hangers and shelves stuffed with clothes. While a bigger wardrobe might solve the problem, if that isn't an option, organising the space you have more efficiently will do wonders. And for more inspiration, we're here to bring order to your bedroom with these ingenious ideas and clever buys that will help you stretch your wardrobe space.

Fitted wardrobes act as the perfect place to conceal a TV, because lets be honest a television doesn't add anything to the style credentials of a bedroom decor – it's best hidden. Baskets on top of a wardrobe provide the perfect place to store clothes, towels or spare bedding. Matching baskets throughout your bedroom scheme will create a cohesive look that keeps your sleep space looking neat and tidy.
