Your bedroom is one of the most important areas and rooms of your home. You spend a lot of time there doing everything from sleeping, to relaxing, to hanging out, to getting ready. Unfortunately, many bedrooms suffer from a lack of organization. Not only can this look bad, but can also make it hard to find things.
A bedroom is supposed to be a place you can relax and wind down, not worry about losing things or dodging clutter at every turn. Thankfully, not every bedroom is doomed to be a disorganized mess. With that in mind, this blog post is going to go over a few tips and hacks to organize your bedroom.
Get a Better Bed
One of the first ways you can organize your room more intelligently is by getting a better bed. A bed takes up a lot of space in a room, and you want to be sure it helps your organization’s efforts, not hurt them. Your bed should have space under it to store things, or have drawers. If not, it is using a lot of space that could be beneficial. Of course, make sure to get a quality mattress, too. While having storage in and around the bed is great, it still needs to serve it;s primary purpose of being comfortable to sleep in.
Ensure You Have Enough Storage
While a storage bed is great, it is not enough storage for most people. As a result, you need other storage solutions around your bedroom. This could be a good-sized closet, an armoire, a dresser, some drawers or a bookcase. If you are lacking, you will have nowhere to put all of your items, and they will turn your room into a cluttered mess. Be sure to consider some clever storage hacks, especially if you don’t have a ton of square footage to work with in your room.
Use the Walls
The walls are one of the most underutilized places in many bedrooms. While they are great places for art, they can also be functional. If you add hooks or shelves, you can use the vertical space in your room for storing everything from books, to decor, to trophies and everything in between. Of course, refrain from filling your walls with too much, as that can look a bit too busy and ruin the aesthetic of the space.
Have a Place for Everything
Having enough storage is great, but you need to be sure to use it well for the best results. When putting things away, ensure that everything has its own place. Be sure to make note of where everything goes, to stop your room from becoming a disaster. Without this step, things can easily get lost or simply stepped over as you’re not sure where it should go.
Consider Getting Rid of Things You Don’t Need
Instead of finding ways to organize and store what you do have, another option to make your bedroom more organized is to get rid of things you don’t need. Most people have much more than they need, and could get rid of a ton of stuff and hardly know it. Every few months, go through your belongings and separate the things you need/want to keep, and the things that can go. From there, decide whether to sell them, give them to friends/family, throw them away or donate them to a worthy cause.
In conclusion, all of these hacks and tips will be able to help ensure you have an organized bedroom.
