How to achieve a clutter-free bedroom

How to achieve a clutter-free bedroom

Sleep. You might not always want it, but you certainly need it. Without a good night’s rest, you will be quite useless during the next day since sleep allows you to regenerate and prepare for another busy day.

One of the best ways of improving your sleep is to make your bedroom clutter-free. 

If you are not sure how to do it, or where to start — here you will find all the necessary information.

The first step: turn it into a cave

Well, not an actual cave (damp and cold), but for starters, you can get rid of all the electronic gadgets.

 Although they can be quite helpful with the daily activities, they can only badly affect your sleep.

What’s next?

The bed is meant for sleeping — therefore, out with everything that is not sheets or pillows.

It should always be ready for sleep, so you should make the bed every morning before you leave the house.

Also, there should not be too much furniture in your bedroom. Try to keep the number at a bare minimum. 

However, do not even think about discarding the bed. Even though it is probably the biggest item in your bedroom, you still need it.

Moreover, the space under the bed is not the Bermuda Triangle, which means that things will not simply disappear if you put them there.

A good way to minimize the space used while maximizing the storage space is by buying a wall bed.

Start small, think big

We can understand if you think that you are not up for this task. All those things lying around your bedroom sure seem to look intimidating. However, you should not worry since we got your back.

 It would be smart to work on one thing each day. If you start working on everything, there is a chance that the enthusiasm would soon evaporate.

 Complete one area of the room on each day, so that you can see the progress that you have made. Furthermore, this is what will keep you on the right track.

 On the other hand, you can start with one category at a time. For example, start with a sock drawer that has been driving you mad because you can never close it.

 After you are done with that, move on to the shirts that have been lying on the chair, or the scattered shoe boxes in the corner.

 Finally, keep in mind that you should start small if you are looking to achieve something big.

What to do with the rest?

When you separate all the things into different categories, you should see what to do with them. Here is how you can categorize them:

  • Trash
  • Yard sale
  • Donate
  • Keep
