Storage for a small bedroom.


T217 Design Essentials

About me

I am 29 years old and my goals during this module was to prove to myself that I can keep up with everyone and reach the end by completing everything that has been asked of me. And when I do graduate I hope to go into graphic design field or prop design for films.


My project is designed to create more storage inside a small space bedroom so, I designed it to be a tall standing shelving unit with multiple drawers and little drawers for bit and bobs which can be stored in it. Also, there are side shelves that can have some decoration put onto them to fit the aesthetic of the room itself so, it does not look out of place in the room.
The problem that I hit in this design was making sure that the weight distribution was in a good balance to see if the unit was stable enough to stand on its own. So I designed it to have a bigger storage space on the bottom of it to pull the weight downwards and make the base more solid to equalise the weight that has been placed onto the side shelving.
To make sure that my design would have the best possible outcome I looked into multiple different unit sizes which can go into a small sized bedroom, and ones which would help with the storage space that is needed in it. I picked the tall standing unit because it takes all the storage space’s up instead of downward and across. So, there would not be so much tripping hazards.
The use of this design would help many people, who have small sized apartments and also bedrooms, to have more storage space which is needed so there isn’t clutter all around them. And this project is also designed so that the person can decorate it with the things that they like so it can blend into the rooms aesthetic and not stick out like a sore thumb.
