Bedroom organization is important for many reasons. First, there is the more obvious benefit of keeping your things in order with minimal mess. Then, there is the fact that a messy room is not ideal for relaxation and sleep. A clean, neat room gives you a place to relax and unwind. Rather than constantly having to pick up clothes, beauty products, shoes, bags, and various other things, you will have everything packed away neatly. In this guide, we share simple but smart bedroom organization tips.
Smart Bedroom Organization Tips
The good news is that bedroom organization does not have to be a huge undertaking that involves a lot of wasted time and stress. Smart tools go a long way in saving time. They can also ensure that your bedroom stays organized a week, month, or year from now. Here's how to get started.
Write down a plan of action
To begin, you will need a plan of action. This does not have to be complicated. Dividing the room up into closets, drawers, and other storage areas is helpful. You can also add to your lists by including any furniture or items you no longer want to keep, or anything you want to move around after cleaning.
Go for space-saving storage
Closet space can be optimized with storage containers that take up minimal room. Folding shelves, boxes that fit onto shelves without looking messy, hangers that allow you to hang up multiple items of clothing, and stacking boxes that easily fit into shelves are all useful. If your bedroom does not have cupboards, look at using your space wisely. Slim-line cupboards can fit into unused corners. You can also try under-bed storage for very small spaces. Bedside tables with drawers, ottomans with hidden storage, and storage headboards are also effective.
Be brutal when de-cluttering
The classic keep, donate, toss formula works best for all types of home organization. This process isn't always as easy as it sounds. For your list of things to keep, consider storing summer or winter clothing and bedding in containers that can be placed in a garage, attic, basement, or spare room. Rather than throwing out or donating things that you aren't fully sure about, start with things that you know you will not use again. Anything that can be donated should be put into separate boxes. Anything else can be tossed.
Take photos once you're done
Once you have packed away all the items you are keeping, and your bedroom is finally looking tidy with your improved storage, taking photos is a good idea. Take photos of the entire bedroom, then go to each storage area and take photos. This will help you see how you stored everything. You will remember where you stored your shoes, how you organized your clothing, and how you organized everything else. When things start to get a little chaotic again, those photos will make it much quicker to get things back in order.
