Your bedroom is the last thing you see before falling asleep and the first thing you see when waking up, so shouldn’t that area be as appealing, organized, and welcoming as possible? If your bedroom needs a little help in the organization department, here are six easy ways to whip it into shape.
Make your bed
This costs no money, takes two minutes every morning, and is the easiest way to make your bedroom look better. A rumpled and unmade bed can make even the most gorgeous room look messy. On the other hand, a neatly made bed can make your bedroom look fresh and clean, even when there are areas that could use some decluttering. So take those extra couple of minutes each morning to straighten out those pillows.
Time for the purge
Before you can get organized, you need to remove all of the junk that isn’t needed, loved, or simply usable anymore. Gather up all of your unflattering clothes and shoes, not-so-treasured collectables, and any other item that doesn’t fit a need anymore, and remove them from the space. Preferably donate these items to Goodwill so others can make use of your unused items. Once you’ve cleared out the junk, it should be much easier to organize everything that’s left.
Take advantage of the space under your bed
Chances are good that you have a ton of wasted real estate under your bed. That space is perfect for storing shoes, seasonal clothing, extra comforters, and other bulky items. Make it easy with under-bed storage boxes that are clear so you can easily see what’s inside. Want to take it a step further? Elevate your bed a few inches with bed rises so that you’ll have even more room for storage.
Conquer the closet
First, remove items that don’t belong in the bedroom and any clothes and shoes that you don’t wear anymore. Then, invest in some closet organizers, or at least a shoe rack. Not only do they save closet space (so you can fit even more clothes), but hanging organizers and shelf ranks allow you to easily see your clothing items, accessories and purses. Finally, arrange your clothing by type, season, or color- whatever your prefer.
Don’t forget the doors
By hanging hooks on the backs of your bedroom and closet doors, you’ll be able to create more storage space to hang your bathrobe, jacket, purse, belts, and so on. Trust me- your closet will thank you.
Add a trunk
If you have the space, a storage bench or trunk at the end of your bed is perfect for placing extra linens or clothing. Even better, it’s a wonderful spot to sit and put on your shoes in the morning. Be careful, though, to avoid letting the top of the trunk become another clutter zone.
