One simple space saving idea for a small bedroom is to use a chest of drawers in your closet instead of the bedroom. If your dresser will not fit in your closet an inexpensive option is the MALM dresser from IKEA.
There are a number of options to fit your space. The price makes it affordable to use in dorm rooms, apartments and small spaces. If you are one of the lucky ones to live near an IKEA they are on sale thru August 26th.
