Tips to Organizing Your Bedroom:
If you are a person, (which I know none of you are)… who walks into their bedroom and becomes instantly stressed out at the sight of: shoes sprawled across the floor, dishes on every table top, and forget about the bed because it is completely covered in clothes! This blog post is dedicated to you, and will educate you on quick, and easy tips to help keep your bedroom organized.
Organize Your Clothes
Step one, is to take the doors off your closet. Yes, that is correct remove the doors. I empathize with your hesitance and complete confusion as to why one would do this, but from experience this works! Taking off closet doors prompts you to keep your closet organized. No more shoving clothes into your closet and shutting the door, now the empty hangers will be literally staring at you. If no doors is too drastic for you, add drapes on the sides of the closet. This will warm up your rooms look too. While this image is of a baby’s room, the concept is still the same for any room. Above are three of my favorite 3 Day Blind’s Drapery fabrics-Andes Cement,Savannah Paprika, Madagascar River, would make amazing closet curtains.
Over the years, I have tried many, many different ways to store my jewelry. I’ve used the hanging rack with pockets for jewelry pieces that can be stored in your closet, I’ve used a traditional jewelry box and used a jewelry drawer sorter. The problem with all of these was that I would forget what jewelry I had because I it wasn’t ever visible. To be honest, I would see these cool, tree- like jewelry stands and always admired their look but questioned if they were functional. I imagined myself knocking the fixture over, or items slipping off and getting lost. Turns out that is not the case at all, the likeliness of knocking it over is about as likely as knocker over a lamp, and I haven’t ever had an issue with items falling off. The best part about this jewelry stand is that I can see all my jewelry, so I actually wear all of my pieces!
Organize and Store Boots
Similar to my jewelry storage issue, I have struggled in the past with storing my boots. Boots are one of those long-term investment items that you typically do not get rid of each season, as a result you end up with a collection. The most effective solution I found for storing boots is on these thin metal hangers, actually any type of pants hanger can work. This allows for easy access to the boots and doesn’t take up too much space. To keep the shape of the boots I recommend rolling up magazines and stuffing it inside the boot shaft, it’s easy and practically free.
Organize with Storage Bins Under Bed
Everyone has those items where you just simply do not know where to store them, blankets, extra sheets, bulky sweatshirts, etc. A great place to store these items is in bins underneath your bed. What I love about these storage bins is that they aren’t your typical plastic container bins, but adorable wicker baskets that you would want to be visible.
Organize Wall Storage:
If you’re really tight for space and need additional storage, install a top shelf and line a rack of hooks underneath. Allotting yourself one shelf for storage items such as books or trinkets forces you to keep only those items you really want or need. Installing hooks like these is a great idea because it designates a place for every day clothing items that tend to get tossed on the floor or bed.
Being organized is not a state its a process. It takes a little effort on your part, but implementing these helpful tips in your bedroom will have you well on your way to living a stress free and organized lifestyle.
