Your bedroom is your nesting place, so decluttering and decorating it can add a dose of comfort and relaxation in your own space. This is the primary reason why counselors say that an organized bedroom is a requisite for a happy home and a full night’s rest.
An untidy and messy room can make you feel tired. Why not make your bedroom clean and beautiful to change your mood? Follow these easy steps to organize your room:
- Make it a habit to declutter your bedroom 30 minutes a day.
The easiest way to organize your own space is to remove the mess on a regular interval each day. You don’t need to wait for your room to look like a storage room before you decide to clean it. Devote at least 30 minutes everyday. It would not take so much time to put the dirty clothes in the laundry, organize your closet or bedroom table. It’s one way to keep your room clean without making so much effort.
- Make use the space under your bed wisely.
The space under your bed is a wonderful storage because it’s very accessible and not visible. It’s one way you can maximize your space when you don’t have enough space in your closet. Of course, you need to buy good containers to store your stuff. You can opt for plastic containers or a DIY wood bin. Since this storage is hidden, you don’t really need to make it extra nice. Some things that you can store under the bed are linens, pillowcases, out-of-season clothes, jackets and, even shoes.
- Declutter storage first.
Always make it a point to keep the storage spaces in your bedroom organized. It includes under the bed, closet, drawers, dressers, wardrobes, bookcases, side tables, etc.
- Hang artworks on the wall.
Another way to keep your room clutter-free and nice to look at is to hang decors or artworks on the walls. This way you keep the surfaces of your tables and drawers neat and tidy. It is a great space saver and can beautify your room in an instant.
- Use drawers as nightstands.
Keep your things organized in a drawer that you can also utilize as a nightstand. Store accessories, bedsheets or books to keep the table top cleared.
- Install a pile-free zone.
Avoid hanging clothes on your chairs or bed whenever you change your clothes on last minutes. Install hooks at the back of your door or closet door. It’s a good way to hang your clothes temporarily without messing up your bedroom.
- Always keep a trash can in your bedroom.
As soon as you come home, make it a habit to unload your bag’s content that may include receipts, tickets, papers or wrappers. Throw the things that you don’t need. Buy a trash can with a cover to put small trashes. Don’t leave papers and other trashes on top of your table or dresser.
- Organize your shoes in a DIY rack.
Don’t leave shoes or slippers on the floor. Your room can look messy with your footwear located everywhere. For an attractive and organize feel, place a DIY shoe rack in your room. A ladder shelf, a pallet shoe rack or a wire shoe rack bench is a perfect display for your footwear.
- Keep a basket for your throw pillows.
Whenever you’re using the bed, put the throw pillows in a basket that is placed near your bed. This is a good way to keep them mostly during the night.
- Bring a hamper inside your room.
Used clothes are one of the clutters that are usually seen in a room. Place a hamper that has a design that is close to your bedroom design. Pick one that can add a statement, such as a modern bin or a native hamper.
