The bedroom is that one certain room in a house that welcomes you with open arms after a long, hectic day. It offers you comfort, relaxation, and that much-needed privacy. It is here that dreams are incubated, serious decisions made, and the very important personal belongings kept.
The average person spends one-third of their life sleeping, which essentially happens here in the bedroom. It should, therefore, be a haven of serenity that is well organized and optimized. Having a well-organized bedroom is the very first step towards decorating it beautifully. So, how do you organize it?
5 Bedroom Organization Ideas
1. Organize Your Jewelry
Organizing and displaying your jewelry collection can be a bit challenging, but you can always find a solution that is perfect for your type of collection. You could choose to go for the traditional jewelry box to put your jewelry in, keep it in drawers, or have some customized organizers made for you. Alternatively, you could organize it on top of the dressing table counter, hung it on the wall on a pegboard, or use china cups, or trays.
2. Get Creative With Your Closet
If your wardrobe has the traditional doors that swing open, it would be a good idea to upgrade and have sliding closet doors installed. This will not only add a touch of style and décor to your bedroom but will also create some extra space that would otherwise have been taken by the swing doors.
They also help create some extra storage space since sliding doors can extend from the ceiling to the floor. With this space, you can even store some boxes up there and the sliding doors will keep them neatly tucked away.
Then, get rid of all the items that do not belong in the bedroom along with all the shoes and clothes that now clutter since you no longer wear it. With what is left, make use of closet organizers and racks to help arrange your clothes per your daily needs.
3. Put Your Artwork on Walls
If your bedroom is relatively small, do not put your art pieces on the vanity, dresser, or nightstand. Instead, consider putting up the artwork on one wall, so you can keep your bedroom spaces clear, and still have your beautiful pieces within view.
Then on the wall that these prized possessions are displayed, make sure that it is well lit, and you will enjoy the streamlined look that your room takes.
4. Use the Space Under the Bed
There are several square feet under the bed that goes unutilized, and which you can convert to a prime storage area. You can have an under bed drawer or storage boxes that have handles to allow you easy access. You can opt to have your bed elevated using bed risers, so you get more storage space cleared, and you also have easy access.
5. Get Creative With Your Storage
While a small nightstand table adds beauty to your room as far as the bedroom storage and organization needs are concerned, it is a waste of space. The best alternative would be having a nightstand that has several drawers. There, you can store your sundries, wipes, hand cream, and the like that normally clutter up the bedside area.
Also, if your room allows, add a trunk or a storage bench and place it on the foot of the bed. This you can use to store bulky clothing like winter jackets, store those out of season clothing, or store your extra linen and towels. This is also a great spot to sit in the morning as you put on your shoes in the morning. However, do not place clutter on top of it.
While all these ideas will help transform your bedroom into a beautiful haven, getting rid of all the things that you do not need or use will go a long way in helping you achieve that ideal look. So, get rid of what you do not need and give it out to charity, then it will be easier for you to get organized. That way, you not only benefit from an organized room but so will Goodwill.
