Most bedroom organization recommendations consist of easier-said-than-done tips like dressing up a room with art and decor and repurposing large pieces of furniture in an already stuffy room without taking the initiative to remove existing clutter. To create a functional and organized bedroom, it’s essential to assess every single inch of your bedroom.
Before organizing your bedroom, you might want to consider replacing your old bed with a more comfortable adjustable bed. However, the secret to having a perfectly organized bedroom lies behind organizing small spaces, so they are streamlined, creating a serene vibe in your room, and focusing on reducing clutter.
Diving into organizing your bedroom all at once can be highly overwhelming; therefore, you should divide your bedroom based on the purpose of the space. Arrange each portion as an independent project; after you’re satisfied with the new arrangement, you can move on to other things.
Start by arranging flat spaces like night tables, the tops of dressers, and any bookcases in your bedroom. Having saved the under-the-bed space for last, you’ll be in a better position to decide what should or can be stored there.
Your bedroom might be spotless, but if the contents of your closet are spiraling out of control, it’ll end up disrupting the calm and serene state of your bedroom. Besides, a cluttered closet is the main reason why most people take a lot of time getting ready in the morning, leading to more frustration since you are in a hurry to get out the door and arrive at work on time.
Tidy up your closet by doing a quick closet clutter sweep or by thoroughly organizing the contents of your closet, cloth by cloth. If need be, you can also incorporate a storage system.
Instead of importing a desk, you can choose a nightstand that accommodates your needs and takes up as little space as possible. Most professional organizers often advise their clients who live in tight quarters to consider getting a small dresser that can serve as a nightstand and allows you to store a few clothes. In case you don’t have enough room for a small dresser, getting a slim night table with lots of drawers can be a tremendous space-saving strategy.
Having a small and decent-looking garbage pail in your bedroom isn’t so bad. It will act as a spot to throw: scraps, pieces of paper, used tissues, and other debris that makes its way into your bedroom.
Get yourself a bathroom-size trash can that’ll take up little space and is hardly noticeable. The smaller the trash can, the easier it is to place it where it is most accessible to you.
Placing a hamper next to the closet, near the closet, or in the closet will help you keep your clothes neatly contained instead of having them spilled out all over your bedroom floor. When you buy a hamper, you can either choose a basic hamper or one that blends with your bedroom decor.
Whether you have a large bedroom with a lot of extra space or a small bedroom with a tiny closet, these few and easy-to-follow organization ideas will help modify your bedroom’s appearance while making it more accessible. After putting these organization tips and storage ideas into play, you will be a step closer to achieving your dream bedroom.
