Shoes littering the floor, shirts spilling out of drawers and clutter gathering dust under the bed – sound familiar? If your bedroom is in a constant state of chaos, read on to find out my best tips for keeping an organized and relaxing bedroom.
We have already given you our top tips for a tidy bathroom, but now it’s time to turn to the most important room in the house. Whether you have plenty of space to work with or have just a small room to call your own, here are some useful tips for keeping your bedroom neat and tidy.
Use under-bed shelving
Rather than haphazardly shoving things under the bed, just to gather dust, make the most of your floor space by investing in some under-bed-storage. Under the bed is a great place to store handbags, exercise gear or new bed linen which doesn’t fit in your usual storage space!

Turn clutter into decor
If items such as old magazines, books, picture frames and house plants litter your bedroom floor, give them the designers touch by arranging them in an artful way. This will make your clutter seem as though it has a purpose, and by adding trays and stacking books, your messy corner suddenly turns from unsightly to trendy table.
Choose hidden storage
Bedside tables often have narrow or shallow drawers which can barely fit anything inside them. Look for a feature which is a little bit different, such as an old steamer trunk or travel chest, which you can use to charge your phone on, store your book and a glass of water, as well as being useful storage!
Display your favorites
If you are short on storage and don’t have the space to keep everything out of sight, opt for putting your favorite books and memorabilia on display. Whether you are hanging gorgeous scarves in the window or using your travel souvenirs to decorate your bookshelves, use your imagine to make art out of these possessions. Not only will this create an interesting space, but it will remind you of all the good memories you have made throughout the years!
If you have room for an extra bookcase or chest of drawers, then buy an extra bookcase or chest of drawers. So long as the extra furniture doesn’t make your bedroom feel small, there will always be a use for the extra storage!
Make smart furniture decisions
That table you’ve spotted in that vintage shop might be beautiful, but is it going to add storage to your bedroom? Probably not. This is about finding beautiful and useful furniture. You’ll need to store books, makeup, jewelry, clothes, and all the other bits and bobs which somehow make their way into our homes! It is important to take advantage of any possible storage space, so learn to get crafty! View your room with fresh eyes and ask yourself where you can add things, without making it feel too crowded.
