Imagine drifting off to sleep every night and waking up each morning in a tidy, clutter-free bedroom. Not only can reducing mess result in better quality sleep, but it can also reduce stress and anxiety and boost productivity. Fortunately, there are some easy ways to cut the clutter in your bedroom. Let’s take a look.
Spend half an hour each day decluttering
Don’t make the mistake of pulling out the whole contents of your bedroom in one go – it’ll simply overwhelm you and it can take much longer than you expect. Instead, dedicate around half an hour every day to decluttering your space. Focus on one area, work on it and complete it, and then stop. Then repeat the process the next day and the day after that. This will ensure that you don’t get put off by the process and throw in the towel.
Be ruthless with your clothes!
When tackling your wardrobe and chest of drawers, we recommend being as ruthless as possible. Go through your clothes and be realistic about what you will and won’t wear again. The truth is that most people only wear 20% of these clothes 80% of the time but keep items ‘just in case’. The problem with that is that too many clothes can lead to excess clutter, taking up valuable space. It can also give you “decision fatigue” every time you go into your wardrobe! A good rule of thumb is that anything you’ve not worn in the past year can go. This can seriously free up space and reduce clutter in your bedroom.
Throw it away or donate it
When tidying your bedroom, it’s a good idea to separate items into a keep, donate, sell, or throw away pile. This will help you to get rid of those items you really don’t need or want, making sure your space contains only things you love. This can do wonders for your mood and outlook. Plus, you’ll be able to fit your belongings into your closet without getting out of breath!
Remove any unnecessary furniture
To make your bedroom as clutter-free as possible, look around and consider whether you have any unnecessary furniture. Excess furniture can obstruct the flow of a space and make a room look smaller. To create more space in your bedroom, think about getting rid of your bedside tables and replacing them with floating shelves. They can serve the same function whilst freeing up floor space.
Invest in a bedside pocket
If much of the clutter in your bedroom is taken up by essentials such as your tablet, phone, TV remote and books, it makes sense to invest in a bedside pocket. This will provide you with the ideal space to store them all safely, making sure they don’t get lost and that you can find them easily.
