How to Organize a Master Bedroom
A refocused & updated repost.
It’s spring. The perfect timed to refresh the interior of our homes. Most times we begin in the kitchen or other living space but not this time. This time we are starting in the room that is usually the last to receive our attention. We are starting with the Master Bedroom! Surprised? 🙂
The master bedroom should be regarded as one of the most important rooms in your home. However, in many homes-like mine, the master bedroom is sometimes ignored while we take care of all of the other spaces.
There is much, much more to organizing a bedroom than simply choosing appropriate furniture. Although properly arranging the furniture and choosing appropriate accessories is important, organizing the space is essential for the purpose of relaxation and restful sleep. Below I have listed several tips that will guide you when you begin the process of organizing your master bedroom.
1. The appropriate stuff
Begin the process by going through each and every drawer and each shelf. Toss, or donate all items that are no longer useful and take all items that belong someplace else to the spaces they belong. Also, remove everything from under your bed and give the area a thorough cleaning. It is always great to do a mini purge on occasion in order to avoid clutter. Next…
- Make use of the space under your bed intelligently.
While we’re under the bed, let’s discuss how useful this space can be. The under the bed area is a wonderful space for storage because it is not visible; however, still very accessible. You may choose to keep just a couple things under there, I suggest such things as gift wrap, or perhaps additional linens, shoes or out of season clothing. Of course items store under the bed should be stored correctly in dust proof containers. There are many to choose from and you can shop them here.
- Art on walls
A room without art is simply incomplete. If you have a small bedroom, place artwork on the wall instead of on dressers or other surfaces. Doing so will make your bedroom more attractive and using your vertical space will help you avoid clutter to give your room a more sleek and put-together look.
- Get your closet/wardrobe under control
Although you may clean your bedroom, you must keep your closet space under control as well. If not, clothing will eventually spill into the sleep and relaxation areas and interrupt the relaxed, peaceful atmosphere of the bedroom. Therefore, I would suggest maintaining an organized closet space. A deep cleaning of your closet can be a bit time consuming and overwhelming in the beginning; however, once the hard part is over, maintenance will be easy. I promise! 🙂 And you could always try one of the convenient and inexpensive closet organizing packages can be customized for as much or as little space as you need.
- Use a Clothes hamper
I would suggest storing your clothes hamper inside your closet or in your laundry area if you are lucky enough to have both your master and your laundry on the same level of the home. Storing the hamper inside the closet will assist you with maintaining an organized space because soiled clothing will not spill out into the bedroom space. Oh happy day!
- A trash bin
A trash can in the bedroom is a necessity. However, I choose to use a small wicker basket as a trash can. Using a small basket means it gets emptied more often which makes the space look neater. Be sure to choose an attractive container as it will only enhance the ambiance of the room.
The key to an organized master bedroom is to do the work. The first purge, cleaning and organizing may take some time and you may need to incorporate the help of a professional organizer. However, after the initial large purge, you will only need to do mini purges on occasion. I live by the one in one out rule. Meaning if I bring in a new blouse I have to donate or toss one of my older blouses. The same applies to shoes, makeup, even outerwear, and pajamas. One in, one out and you can maintain your organized master bedroom space. You can shop this project and find other organization tools here. Happy organizing.
