While a home is full of many important rooms, few are as important as the bedroom. We spend a lot of time there, and want to make sure it looks great. It should also be a comfortable place to spend time. For example, if your room is constantly too hot, it can make it very uncomfortable to sleep in.
If you are struggling with a warm sleeping environment, check out this recent post all about some of the best cooling mattresses. But in addition to looking good and being a comfortable place to spend time, your bedroom should also be organized. Unfortunately, organization isn’t a skill that everyone has.
In an effort to help, this article is going to cover a few helpful tips to organize your bedroom.
Have a Spot for Everything
The first tip is to make sure you have a spot for everything. If you just toss things wherever you want when putting them away, it will make it a nightmare to remain organized. Ensure every item has a drawer, shelf, hanger or hook to return to once you are done using it.
It might take some time to find a dedicated spot for everything and remember them all, but it will simplify the organization process and save you a lot of time. If you don’t have a spot for something, you can spend several minutes (or longer) trying to track it down.
Find Unique Ways to Store Things
A key to remaining organized comes down to storage. You need enough space and different places to store things in order to remain organized. If you lack storage, organizing well just isn’t possible. Unfortunately, your room may not be large enough for multiple dressers, cabinets and boxes to fit.
Thankfully, there are dozens of different ways you can store things in your bedroom that you may not have thought of right away. This includes using hanging organizers, adding floating shelves, or even getting dual-purpose furniture. These will all provide you ample space to keep your items, so they are not laying around your room without a place to go.
Donate, Sell or Throw Out Some Things
Sometimes, instead of finding ways to add more storage to keep things organized, you should be finding ways to reduce the things you have. Most of us have far too many things. In fact, there are around 300,000 items in the average American home.
Because of this, it couldn’t hurt to regularly take stock of the items you have, and decide which you no longer need. Make a pile of things you need to keep, and one full of items to sell, donate or throw away. The less things you have to organize and put away, the easier your overall bedroom organization will be to keep up.
Do a Little Bit Every Day
Being organized is something you need to put time and effort into. In order to maintain an organized bedroom, you need to do a little bit every day. By doing a little every day and always putting things back where they go, you can save your room from ever becoming a messy disaster.
Take a few minutes every morning to make your bed, put your dirty clothes in the hamper, and put any items back where they go. This practice will also make your large cleaning days much easier as you won’t have as much to do. This can ensure you can find what you need in seconds, and your room continues to look great.
If you use these four tips, you are sure to have a more organized bedroom. It will become much easier to find things, and your room will look much cleaner as a result of your organization efforts.
