Whenever someone tells me they don’t know where to start when it comes to getting their home organized my answer is always the same, the master bedroom. Everyone needs a sanctuary they can retreat to, even if the rest of the house looks like a tornado blew through it. Having the last space you see at night and the first one you see in the morning be calm and peaceful helps to start and the end the day on a good note.
Before you can organize, you have to declutter. Take a couple of minutes to run through the room throwing away trash and collecting items that belong in another part of the house. Straighten up the room. This is just a quick pass of the space. We’ll tackle a full decluttering later on. Right now, let’s get your space beautiful.
Follow these steps to get your bedroom organized and feeling like an oasis
Jewelry is another thing guilty of cluttering up your master bedroom space. You can find it on the bedside table, dresser, bathroom countertops, among other places. Quickly gather up the jewelry around the room and return it to its home. If you don’t have a designated place for it, or if the place you have isn’t working well, try these:
When organizing it is important to have as many pieces as possible perform multiple functions. Things like under the bed storage drawers, bedside tables with drawers and/or shelves, benches with storage, and so on. I’m not suggesting you go out and buy all new furniture. Well, you can if you want to, but most items can be found for free or nearly free on Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, or your local Facebook free and community share groups. Adding in double-duty pieces will help your room stay tidy and free of the clutter monster.
If your space is small, go vertical with your storage. Something like the Kallax cube shelving unit from IKEA is a great option. It’s sturdy, versatile, and can be painted any color you like. They hold a ton of stuff and can be used as open shelving, with cube drawers, or have doors or additional shelves put in.
Now that the space in order, it’s time to add in those extra touches that turn your bedroom from boring to an oasis.
