Top Tips for Bedroom Organization

Top Tips for Bedroom Organization-min

Your bedroom should be a place of tranquility, where you can relax and de-stress, recharging both your mind and body. If your bedroom is not tidy then this may not be the case. A cluttered bedroom can be rather stressful to spend time in, leaving you unable to doze off when you need to, and making it harder for you to wake up in the morning.

It’s much nicer to wake up to MONQ’s Forest smells of spruce, fir, and sandalwood than the aroma of dirty socks! You’ll find it easier to doze off to the scent of MONQ’s Sleepy lavender, chamomile, and kava too, building the foundations of a good sleep habit.

Tidy Bedroom, Tidy Mind

Bedroom organization starts with making your bedroom a place for sleep only. You should not be spending your ‘sleepy time’ reading on your phone, or watching TV on your laptop. Move your devices to another room. If you rely on your phone for an alarm, put your phone face down out of your reach when you go to bed. This will make you have to actually get up to turn the alarm off too!

The ideal bedroom should have just a few things; a comfortable bed with a good mattress, storage for personal effects, and blinds or curtains that will block out light so that you can enjoy complete darkness while you are trying to sleep. If you have embraced the minimalist philosophy then you will know that minimalists do not have a lot of “stuff,” but that the things they do have are of the highest quality. That is something that you should push for with your bedroom. A high-quality mattress is a must-have and is well worth paying extra for.

Use Concealed Storage

Whether we are discussing bedroom organization or any other room in your home, concealed storage is a powerful tool for decluttering. Under-bed storage, door hangers for walk-in closets, and other convertible storage add-ons can be a handy way of hiding things that you need to keep but don’t need to use on a regular basis.1

Go Minimal With Your Dresser/Vanity

If you have a vanity or dressing table, try to keep it tidy and organized. Keep your jewelry in a box and get your makeup down to the bare essentials. This will save you a fortune, mean that you aren’t throwing away tubs of unused cosmetics that are past their shelf-life, and will reduce the clutter in your bedroom too.

Make a Capsule Wardrobe

Has your current wardrobe expanded to fill your drawers, your closet, and also the back of the chair and piles on the floor? If so, you might want to try cutting down your clothing selection. The idea of a ‘capsule wardrobe’ is gaining popularity with people who want to enjoy tidier, more minimalistic bedrooms, and less laundry too. With a capsule wardrobe, you try to condense your selection of clothes into just 30 or so garments. Choose high quality, timeless garments that will go with anything – simple colors or understated patterns rather than prints that will date quickly. To jazz up your wardrobe, accessorize!

Be Ruthless

It’s tempting to hold on to things that have sentimental value, or that you aren’t quite sure what to do with. Try not to do this. Give away books that you have read and will not read again. Throw away or recycle broken items. Put ornaments that you don’t really use, look at or play with into storage, and if you don’t feel tempted to open the box for a while then throw them away. Be dispassionate about this form of decluttering. It’s highly unlikely that you will regret giving things away and in most cases even if you do you can buy them again. You will feel much better when you have a nice clear, clean and tidy bedroom.

Keep Your Decor Simple

Rooms look and feel bigger when they have light and airy decor. Use a large mirror to create the illusion of more space. Choose simple patterns and clean looking designs to stop the room from feeling too cramped.2 Don’t buy too many cushions and pillows or throws, you don’t really need them. Have enough pillows to feel comfortable yourself and no more. Have a couple of duvets with different Tog ratings for summer/winter use, and change them regularly.

Get into the habit of making your bed every morning when you get up. The reasoning for this is simple. It makes you get up a couple of minutes earlier and it makes you leave your bedroom in a clean and tidy state. You are starting the day with your first item on your to-do list ticked off … “make the bed.”

If you have a great day, you will end it on a high note, crawling into a nice cozy bed. If you have a terrible day you will be able to tell yourself that at least there is a warm and comfortable bed waiting for you when you get back. You will end the day on a nice note, no matter what.

In Conclusion

Decluttering your bedroom is a simple process, but it is something that you probably won’t be able to do in one day. Spend a few minutes every day for a month throwing things out and tidying things up, it will pay off and you will see your room get cleaner and neater over time.

Once you have tackled the bedroom you will be ready to move on to tackle other rooms until you have a house that is sparkling clean and a joy to come home to. Work to keep it like that, and you will find that your mental wellbeing improves and that the organization spills over into other aspects of your life too. Build happiness, one step at a time!
