How to Organize a Bedroom
-First thing is to thoroughly sort through everything with the questions: Have I worn it in the last year? Do I need to keep it in my bedroom? Is it practical to keep? Do I have room for it?
- Have a giveaway box/bag and/or a box/bag for consignment. To be removed immediatly after so as not to be tempted to keep it.
-Is the furniture placed properly for best use? Baskets and decorative boxes are great to use to store things in if
you don’t have enough storage. Make use of under the bed storage containers. There are often unused corners in a room that can be used for storage.
-You need more shelving or drawers to be able to maximize the space in a walk-in closet. If you have a lot of shoes, extra shelving is helpful or keep the shoes in shoe boxes or plastic boxes of the same size with a picture of the shoes on them is an easy way to avoid a large pile of shoes on the floor.
-Clothing is best grouped either according to color or according to type of clothing. Hang up as much as is practical to easily access if folding is not something you automatically do. Baskets or containers work well for socks, underware, scarves, etc. Or fold clothes, and place on shelves.
-Wherever you can, maximize the space with boxes, or extra shelving inserts so there is not as much unused space.
-Jewelry is another one of those things that if not organized properly are annoying and often end up in a jumbled mess somewhere. There are, of course, store bought containers that work well. But one thing I like to use that is decorative as well as functional is converting a picture frame into a Jewelry stand. I will give instructions on building this in one of my blogs.
-As always when organizing, keep in mind what is used most often and have these things put where they can be accessed easily.
