Your bedroom is your private oasis: the room you escape to from the fast-paced, busy world you live in. In order to keep it feeling like your private oasis it should be kept as neat and tidy as possible. Get a head start on making your room your favourite space with these 5 affordable ways to organize it this year.
Use the Space Under the Bed
The space under your bed is the perfect place to stow away items that you don’t use on a regular basis, without spending a fortune. This method of using the space under the bed will not only look nice, it will also provide you with a way to reduce some of the clutter around your room.
Give Your Wardrobe a Makeover
One of the major sources of clutter in a bedroom can be unorganized clothing. If your clothes are not folded properly, or if you have the wrong type of hangers in your closet, it can make the room look messy. To reduce the disorganization in your closet, use felt hangers. This will prevent clothing from slipping off and will provide you with more space to hang your wardrobe because of their slim design. Folding shirts and pants properly will also maximize the space you have in your drawers and make it easier to find what you are looking for. The best part is that this method of organization costs very little, and can have a huge impact on the cleanliness of your bedroom.
Use Creative Spaces
Organizing your bedroom can be as simple as getting creative about where you store your personal belongings. Installing hooks on the side of your dresser or nightstand provides a perfect place to hang necklaces or scarves, and placing paper clips along the side of a desk keeps electrical cords neat and tidy. Overall, getting creative about the space you use and what you use it for, is a simple and affordable way to organize your bedroom.
Rethink the Traditional
If you are finding it difficult to store extra blankets and some of your personal novelties in your bedroom, rethink the traditional bedside table and opt for something with more storage! Using something like a ladder shelf will not only provide you with a spot for your alarm clock and lamp, but it will also give you more space to store items like extra blankets or personal novelties you may have collected.
Use Multipurpose Furniture
One of the many ways to organize your bedroom without going out of your budget is to use multi-purpose furniture. A storage bench at the end of the bed, or a bedside table like this one not only function as nice pieces of furniture, but also provides storage which helps you to avoid overcrowding your bedroom. Using furniture that is designed for more than one purpose will maximize your floor space, making your bedroom feel tidier and more organized.
Organizing your room for the new year is simple and can be very affordable if you know how to approach it. Taking steps like folding your clothes a certain way or getting creative about storage spaces will help you get your room in order, and transform it into the bedroom you have always dreamed of.
