High Up On the Wall Next to the Bed – Best for Small Rooms
If you have a tiny bedroom, placing your shelves on the wall next to your bed is a fantastic idea since it diverts attention away from the area and prevents it from appearing cluttered, which is frequently the case when shelves are placed above beds in small bedrooms.
However, if you don’t raise the shelves high enough, making your bed might be a real hassle. Ensure that the shelves are mounted high enough on the wall to keep them out of harm’s way, but don’t mount them so high that they are hidden.
Additionally, rather than stacking shelves on top of one another, I advise utilizing them side by side. They are side by side, but as you can see from the photograph above, there is a slight height difference between them. Although they are still side by side, you occupy the area a little bit more with this ornamental detail than if they were at the same height.
Given that it is big enough for them, I believe that wall prints or posters are more frequently connected with this area, but shelves are also a possibility. Overall, if you just make sure they’re placed correctly and are raised high enough, you can greatly improve the wall space next to your bed.
Use the Space Above Your Bed
Often, the wall space above your bed serves as the bedroom’s focal point, making bookshelf a logical addition. However, a few pointers before you begin installing: To prevent hitting your head, first hang a small shelf or picture ledge. In order to prevent that area of your space from becoming overly crowded, keep the items on the shelf to a minimum and clear it of debris.

Over Drawers or Dresser – Best For Enhancing Aesthetics
By enabling the complementing placing of other things like mirrors and wall art, shelves placed above dressers or drawers may improve the aesthetics of the space. The majority of you will have a modest dresser or drawer set, but even if you have a wardrobe with drawers, you can still use a smaller piece, like a bedding box, to fill the empty space in your home.
Regardless of where your drawers are placed, there is typically enough room above them for shelves to assist occupy the area. A few people I know have their drawers lined up with windows, but from my experience, this isn’t the best placement for them and it’s preferable to leave the window space clean.
As a result, creating shelves above drawers against the wall creates a decorative element that works well. I advise stacking two shelves on top of one another, but place them to the side rather than in the middle, as seen in the image above. This frees up space on the other side of the area above the drawers for additional decorative elements, such a poster or mirror. Shelves function effectively in this area since it improves the aesthetics of the space more.
To conserve space in the bathroom, you can store any toiletry or beauty products on the shelves. If you want to add a more decorative touch, you can also store any jewelry or clothing accessories (click here to see how to build a bedroom with an ensuite). This has benefits for storage because it will also free up space on top of the drawers themselves.
However, if you’re short on room or your wall space is taller than it is broad, I advise leaving a gap between the shelves and putting a mirror there. Just take careful to place the shelves in such a way that the mirror is situated between them both at a respectable height and not too low. You shouldn’t stoop to apply your cosmetics or style your hair!
Any room in the house would benefit from having built-ins, but bedrooms are especially lovely. However, don’t stop there; also include built-in bookshelves. Built-in shelves offer the same amount of storage as standard bedroom shelves. A room has so much more style because of the character and antique feel that built-ins may give off.

For storing books and other bedroom necessities, the shelves are ideal. In addition, the showcase unit has two open shelves that serve as contemporary nightstands for nightstand lights on either side of the bed. This wall-mounted shelf demonstrates how modular construction may increase storage while freeing up space.
Wall Opposite Bed – Best For Decoration
If you don’t want a TV opposite your bed, adding shelves to the wall is a great cosmetic choice that also serves a utilitarian purpose. You may have plenty of storage for your belongings and a place to display your accomplishments or significant artifacts to give your home a little more personality by mounting two or three shelves on this wall.
I recommend designating one shelf for any awards (trophies, medals), and the other for sentimental mementos or collectibles. Use a variety of things and decorations to keep it decorative. Try adding some fake plants or even some ornaments, but use no more than a few objects per shelf to avoid drawing attention away from its unique contents.
This gives the space more vitality and attracts more favorable attention to it. Additionally, you may decorate the area around the shelves to bring even more attention to the space and emphasize its significance inside the room.
For instance, the two shelves and two prints in the image above are positioned such that they are on different sides. This draws attention to the prints without detracting from the shelves. It also gives your shelves a more decorative appearance and somewhat improves their attractiveness.
Instead of using prints, you might add a personal touch by using pictures (maybe of your family or awards), which complements shelves that highlight your other possessions or accomplishments beautifully.
