If your bedroom looks and feels like a chaotic dungeon with an unkempt bed, chairs overflowing with clothes, and disorganised nightstands, it’s time to organise everything in this space. Your bedroom is your relaxing cocoon. Even if you aren’t royalty, your bedroom should feel like the kingdom you own and have a relaxing vibe. To ensure this space is fit to welcome you and help you relax, you need to organise it. However, with busy professional schedules and a pile of housework to take care of, it’s often next to impossible for most to devote hours on end to the task. But there’s no need to worry as we bring you eight easy bedroom organisation tips to get the space neat, cosy, and welcoming in quick time.
Purge your belongings
Begin your bedroom organization with an initial sweep of the space. Review every item that’s cluttering the space to decide what will constitute these separate piles: Donate, Keep, Trash, and Other Room. Next, you should sort things into these four piles. You should also put dirty clothes hogging space on your chair in a laundry basket to give your bedroom an organised look.
Organise your things
After you have handled the unwanted items in your bedroom, position the rest in their rightful place. For instance, if the living room’s TV remote is on the bedside table, place it in the living room where it belongs. The laundered clothes should be stacked neatly in the closet. Books should be organised on the bookcase and your jewellery in the jewellery box. If you own things for which you don’t have a designated place yet, you can group them and set them aside at the moment.
Make your bed
An unmade bed makes your bedroom room look messy. You will need just a few seconds more each morning to straighten the sheets, fluff your pillows, and smooth out your comforter or duvet. A decluttered space with a bed that’s neatly made will make your bedroom look pretty inviting and cosy.
Unclutter your bedside table
Your bedside table tends to accumulate assorted items over time. To unclutter it, you can use a bedside caddy to store small items, thus freeing up space on your bedside table. Items that you don’t use daily, which are hogging space on your bedside table, need to be put away. You could even consider getting a small dresser or a bedside table with drawers in place of your existing nightstand to facilitate tucking those items away.
Sort out your dresser drawers
Tidying up your dresser drawers can help organise your bedroom. Consider donating or discarding clothes and other items in your dresser that you haven’t worn for long. The space thus created can be used to hold clothes lying here and here in your bedroom. Fold your clothes that were unfolded and group similar clothing items together, like T-shirts in one drawer and pants in another. You can use drawer dividers to organise small items like underwear and socks. This way, you can avoid the clothes piling up atop your bed or floor.
Zone your bedroom
When you have designated areas for sleeping, putting on makeup, dressing, and so on, they give your bedroom a structure and create a beautiful sense of flow in the room. At the same time, they give you a clear idea of which items need to go where, thus helping you organise your bedroom better. For instance, if you have the space, you can zone your bedroom with a comfortable armchair and reading lamp. This will create a cosy reading corner in your bedroom where you can go when you need some alone time to dive into the book written by your favourite author.
Use bed risers
Though most beds give you some space for under-bed storage, you can use bed risers to maximise the space. By lifting your bed a few additional inches above the floor, these bed risers create extra storage space. This hack is particularly useful for a small bedroom. You could even use multiple stackable bed risers, one above another, if you need more storage space.
Invest in bedroom organisers
You may not always be in the mood to fold clothes or have time to organise your shoes. It’s best to get some bedroom organisers for these times. You could either position them in the corner of the bedroom or inside your closet. Wicker baskets, removable tote bags with sturdy handles, or separation baskets with dual compartments can be ideal when you’re feeling lazy and just need to throw your dirty laundry, shoes, or other things into a designated space for the day.
Implement these easy steps, and you will have a calming bedroom with a lot less chaos and clutter. And the best part? You won’t need to spend hours organising the space and its things.
