Your bedroom should be your sanctuary, a serene place not only for sleeping, but also for relaxing after a day of hard work. And since this is where you recharge your energy batteries for the next day, a neat and uncluttered space along with organized closet sets the perfect stage for both a good night’s sleep and a very productive day.
Here are simple ways to whip your bedroom into shape and transform it into a heavenly retreat.
Reorganize your wardrobe
Although many think organized closet is not really that important, it is. Aside from putting clothes back where they belong to avoid bedroom clutter, it is important to keep your closet as neat and organized as possible. First take everything out of closets and drawers and then sort the clothing according to themes. For example, sports clothing, work outfits, clothes for clubbing, etc. Decide which clothes you should keep (throw away or donate clothes you haven’t worn in a year), fold or hang them for easier access.
Rethink your bedside table
While bed is the most important piece of furniture in any bedroom, the room isn’t complete without bedside tables. And there is definitely no excuse not to include these furniture pieces in your room decor. Aside from being functional and versatile, bedside tables add to the aesthetics of the bedroom. And they really do not cost a lot, as many believe. You can easily find discount bedside tables online or offline, thus not spend a small fortune and without compromising on quality.
Bedside tables usually serve as storage items, either for stuffing drawers with clothing or for placing décor items such as a lamp, vase, picture frame or a book, a glass of water, etc. Unfortunately, these furniture pieces most commonly end up piled with stuff that is really not needed, like for example random papers, device charges, medicines, and more. Therefore, stop using your expensive or discounted bedside tables as all-in-one pieces.
Rethink your under-bed storage
While organizing experts consider the space under the bed a great storage potential, it is known to disrupt your sleep cycle. According to feng shui, it can represent unresolved things in life. So, use under-bed space to store only bedroom-related things, such as extra bedding or out-of-season clothing.
Find a place for everything and make sure it stays there
The concept of finding a place for all your stuff, from socks to books, is more like a mental challenge than an organizing tactic. For example, when you see a sock that is not in its place, you’re more likely to store it the top drawer and not actually put it where it belongs. Remember, when you find a place for every item, it will be easier to put things away and keep your bedroom organized and tidy.
