Mastering Bedroom Organization: A Guide to Tidy Closets, Neat Dressers, and Serene Bedrooms

Oct 01, 2023

 A well-organized bedroom is not only aesthetically pleasing but also conducive to relaxation and better sleep. It's where you start and end your day, and clutter can quickly become a source of stress. In this blog post, we'll explore the art of bedroom organization, focusing on three key areas: the bedroom, the closet, and the dresser. With some straightforward steps, you can transform your bedroom into a serene and clutter-free oasis.

The Bedroom

Bedroom organization starts with the room itself. Here are some steps to create a peaceful atmosphere:

  1. Declutter First: Start by decluttering your bedroom. Remove any items that don't belong in the bedroom, such as dishes, paperwork, or exercise equipment. Keep only what's necessary for rest and relaxation.
  2. Invest in Storage Furniture: Consider investing in furniture that doubles as storage, like ottomans with hidden storage or a bed with built-in drawers. These pieces can help you maximize space and reduce clutter. One of my favourite is the UNFOLD sofa sleeper. I have an Unfold sofa sleeper at my cabin and have turned a sunroom into a multifunctional room.  The beautiful thing about their sofa sleepers is that you can have one space act as two rooms.  Its a fantastic option to use in a room to have the versatility of a guest room and an office with a sofa.  You can use my code GOSIMPLIFIED for $400 of your order!
  3. Use Wall Shelves: Install wall shelves to display items like books, plants, or decorative items. This clears surfaces and adds a touch of personality to your bedroom. (CAN Link, US Link)
  4. Under-Bed Storage: Utilize the space under your bed for storage. You can use under-bed storage bins or drawers to keep items like shoes, seasonal clothing, or extra linens neatly tucked away. (CAN Link, US Link)
  5. Maintain a Minimalist Nightstand: Keep your nightstand clutter-free by placing only essentials like a lamp, alarm clock, and a book you're currently reading. Consider a nightstand with drawers for additional storage.

The Closet

A well-organized closet makes getting dressed in the morning a breeze and ensures your clothing stays in good condition. Here's how to achieve closet nirvana:

  1. Declutter Your Wardrobe: Regularly go through your clothes and accessories and remove items you no longer wear or need. Donate or sell items in good condition and discard anything beyond repair.
  2. Categorize Clothing: Organize your clothes by category (e.g., shirts, pants, dresses) and then further by color or season. This makes it easy to find what you need.
  3. Invest in Quality Hangers: Replace wire hangers with felt hangers. These prevent clothes from slipping off and maintain the shape of your garments. (CAN Link, US Link)
  4. Use Drawer Organizers: Drawer organizers can keep smaller items like socks, underwear, and accessories neatly separated and easy to find. (CAN Link, US Link)
  5. Seasonal Rotation: Store off-season clothing in vacuum-sealed bags or bins. This frees space in your closet for the clothes you're currently wearing. (CAN Link, US Link)

The Dresser

Your dresser is a key component of bedroom organization, and it's where you store items you use daily. Here's how to keep it tidy:

  1. Fold Clothes Efficiently: Learn to fold clothes efficiently, using techniques like the accordion fold method, to maximize drawer space and prevent wrinkles.
  2. Drawer Dividers: Use drawer dividers to separate different types of clothing, such as socks, underwear, and T-shirts. This prevents items from getting mixed up and disorganized. (CAN Link, US Link)
  3. Keep the Top Clear: Resist the urge to clutter the top of your dresser with knick-knacks. Instead, display a few carefully chosen items or keep it entirely clear for a clean look.  This will also help you when it comes time to clean.
  4. Regular Maintenance: Take a few minutes each week to tidy up your dresser, returning items to their proper places and ensuring everything remains organized.

A well-organized bedroom, closet, and dresser can transform your daily routine and create a peaceful, stress-free space. Remember that organization is an ongoing process. Regularly assess your bedroom and storage systems to maintain order. By following these tips, you can create a bedroom that promotes relaxation and sets the stage for a more organized life overall. Sweet dreams!
