Your bedroom should be a place of relaxation and peace, an oasis where you can unwind and rest. But you know what the arch-nemesis of calm and serenity is? Clutter and disorganization. And unfortunately, bedrooms are prone to both. Here are some great tips for organizing your bedroom (not just your closet) and make the most out of this space.
Use the Space Under the Bed
The space under the bed is great, easy to access but out of sight, but many people don’t use it. There are lots of rolling storage solutions designed to fit this space, so make use of it. You could consider storing out-of-season clothes or holiday items, but you could also use it for everyday storage and get rid of another piece of furniture that’s taking up space, like a dresser.
Streamline the Closet
If your closet is out of control, it will disrupt the calm of the space even when the door is shut, because you know what’s hiding there. Take some time to sort and get rid of anything that doesn’t fit or that you just don’t wear. Make room for new stuff that meets your needs or just enjoy how easy it is to get stuff in and out when it’s not packed to bursting.
De-Clutter in Zones
When cleaning, work your way through the room in zones, organized around big furniture pieces (the bed, the dresser, the desk). Sort everything into “keep,” “trash,” and “donate” and then actually get rid of the stuff that’s trash or donation. Do the entire furniture piece before moving on, including the top surface and all the drawers.
Consider Specialty Storage
If you have the floor space to accommodate some specialty storage, consider it. If you have a lot of throws or pillows on your bed, you may find yourself throwing them on the floor at night as you get ready for bed. Instead, have a basket or blanket rack available to keep them organized and neat.
Clear Up Surfaces
Try to keep your surfaces, like night tables and dresser tops, free of stuff. This doesn’t just apply to clutter like spare change and old tissues. Hang pictures and art on the walls rather than setting them on top of your furniture. These items have a way of attracting more clutter. Plus if the tops are totally clear of stuff, it will give the room a cleaner look.
Include a Hamper And Trashcan
The saying “a place for everything and everything in its place” also applies to trash and dirty clothes. If you have a designated and easily accessed place to throw trash and dirty clothes, they are less likely to end up on the floor.
