8 Bedroom Organization Tips

A well-organized bedroom gives a sense of relaxation, peacefulness and privacy. It makes a perfect sanctuary where you can rest after a long hectic day. Fortunately, it is easy to keep your bedroom tidy, organized and decluttered. 

Whether you have a spacious room or a small bedroom, here are some useful bedroom organization ideas you could try:

01. Make Your Bed Every Day

It's a great habit to make the bed every morning, as soon as you wake up. This simple practice would instantly make your bedroom feel a lot tidier.

Keeping bed linen fresh and clean is also important for a cozy and organized bedroom vibe. If you have a hectic lifestyle, it's good to use bedding made from materials that are easy to maintain and care for, otherwise you may feel reluctant to wash the linens.

It would also be helpful to choose bedding materials that have odour and bacterial resistant properties, such as bamboo and Tencel lyocell. So your bedding can stay in good shape for relatively longer time when you are too occupied with other things.

Bottom line is, we think cleaning bedding every one or two weeks is a good practice to keep odour and dirt away.

02. Arrange Furniture by Frequency of Use

When you plan your bedroom furniture, it's helpful to think about functionality and usability. You don't need so many or bulky pieces of furniture in your private sanctuary.

Plan a layout that allows for an easy and comfortable walkway from one side to another in the room. Keep a laundry basket in your closet and place the dressing table near the bed. It’s also good to have decorative hooks for bags and coats at the entrance.

If you’re renovating or building your bedroom from scratch, it’s easier to sketch our furniture arrangement before implementing it.

03. Invest in a Blanket Basket

Pillows and blankets are great for creating layered beds, but when not in use, they can take up a lot of space and make room look messy. In those types of situations, a large open basket or two can come really handy to keep extra pillows and throw blankets in place.

There are many stylish baskets available in various sizes, materials, shapes, and textures. Not only can they help your room stay organized but they will also make your bedroom look straight out of Pinterest.

04. Utilize Under-Bed Storage

The invisible space under the bed is easily accessible. You can utilize this vacant space to store items like your extra bed sheets, books, overflowing shoe piles, your ever-expanding book collection, and other day-to-day essentials.

You can buy a rolling storage container to keep your stuff organized under the bed, which frees up much space in the bedroom.  

05. Employ Over-the-Door Storage

Every inch count when you want to max out storage. But you don't need a fancy closet system or high-end accessories to fulfill your storage needs. You can use many surprising corners in your bedroom, and one such place is the back of your door.

There are many smart ways to create storage space on the back of the door. Hang a couple of narrow wood or metal racks, or get some fabric hanging organizers.

You can also create hidden craft storage that features small hooks and containers to organize your pencils, scissors, envelopes, etc.

06. Create a Reading Nook

If you love books, you can create a cozy reading nook in your bedroom. All you need for this is a comfortable chair, a plush decorative pillow, and an ottoman to place your books on.

A reading nook is not solely for reading. It can be your personalized spot to relax and revive after hectic schedules. So, you can also get a blanket for cozy unplanned naps.  

You can also invest in a good rack to showcase your library of books and magazines. If you live in a small bedroom, you can use a small bookcase as the bedside table, or go vertical to mount small bookshelves on the wall.

07. Put Fine Art on Walls

A large blank wall can become a candidate for unnecessary things. Also, it may comprise the look and feel of your bedroom. So, you can consider hanging wall art – something inspired by natural elements.

For a cohesive look, you can create a gallery wall using your life’s favorite memories. Adding fine art to your space will keep it clear while giving it a streamlined look.

08. Go Minimalist

One of the best and easiest ways to keep your bedroom organized is to go minimalist. The fewer the items, the easier it becomes to organize your space. Fortunately, it’s pretty easy to create a magazine-worthy minimalist bedroom.

Follow the neutral color palette, layer your bedroom, go entirely monochrome, get a large rug, and add colors with botanicals.

Bonus Tips

Make a weekly bedroom decluttering checklist and stick to it. Use bedside caddies to eliminate the need for a nightstand or side table if you're short at space.

Note that a well-organized bedroom brings the relaxation you deserve after long hectic days.
