Time to Organize Your Bedroom? This Guide’s for You

Your bedroom is the place you start and end the day, so spending the time organizing it to be a more restful and aesthetically pleasing room is well worth it. The tips below will help you do exactly that, from the drawers to the closet.

Drawers

Decluttering drawers is a great place to start. They are small areas that you can organize relatively quickly, and the space you open up by doing so is great for storing other items.

Clear out anything in your dresser, side tables, bed frame, and other drawers, only leaving behind what you use. Adding drawer dividers is an easy and inexpensive way to organize items and keep them that way. You can even make your own dividers from cardboard.

Under the Bed

While this isn’t a place that many people see, it is still an area that is prone to clutter. Rather than ignoring it with the “out of sight, out of mind” strategy, remove what’s under the bed and assess what to keep or donate.

Then, find a suitable storage solution for putting the possessions you want to hold onto. It could be as simple as a few plastic containers that fit beneath the bed.

The Closet

Go through your clothes ask yourself honestly what you still wear and what can go to charity or friends and family. Holding onto garments that you haven’t worn in the last year is likely just taking up valuable space in the closet.

Consider folding out-of-season clothes and storing them elsewhere to clear space. Putting them into luggage is an easy way to keep them without requiring extra room.

If you notice there’s no room for shoes, what about adding a floating shelf or two in the closet for them? You can also free up part of the closet by adding hooks to the walls for purses and hats. Walls are often a forgotten place for storage.

More Organizing Tips for the Bedroom

If you have a small bedroom, you might feel it’s hopeless to organize as clutter easily accumulates. But our professional organizers insist that with some creativity, even a tiny room is one they can organize and keep it that way.

For example, hang your clothes hamper from a hook on the back of the door so that it won’t take up floor space. Also, store tank tops on shower curtain rings rather than individual hangers to save space in the closet. You can fit a dozen on one ring!

Adding a headboard that has built-in storage is another suggestion. This headboard is where you can store books, extra clothes, clean sheets, and more.

Don’t forget the other end of the bed too. That is where you can put an ottoman with storage or a trunk. Fill it with blankets, sheets, towels, or folded clothes.
