From Chaos to Calm: Tips for Keeping Your Bedroom Clean and Organized
Nothing is better than walking into your bedroom and relaxing after a busy day. But all too often, our bedrooms become cluttered, chaotic spaces that leave us feeling stressed and overwhelmed. If you're tired of feeling like your bedroom is more like a storage room than a place to rest, it's time to take action.
Before cleaning, it is important to have a long-term schedule because the purpose of cleaning is to raise a good habit and daily cleaning routine. That’s why we create this checklist to help you achieve the goal of always having a bedroom that is clean and organized.
- Start with a clean slate
Before you can create a clean and organized bedroom, you need to start with a clean slate. Take everything out of your bedroom - yes, everything - and give it a deep clean. Vacuum the floors, dust the surfaces, and wipe down the windows. This will give you a fresh start and help you see what you're working with.
Now that your bedroom is clean, it's time to declutter. Start by going through all of your clothes and getting rid of anything you haven't worn in the past year. Then move on to your drawers, shelves, and surfaces. It is the time to be ruthless and get rid of anything that doesn't serve a purpose or bring you joy. However, don’t throw everything directly into the trash since you can always donate to people who need them.
- Organize your closet
Once you've decluttered your bedroom, it's time to organize your closet. Invest in some hangers, shelf dividers, and storage bins to help you make the most of your space. Use the KonMari method and organize your clothes by category - shirts, pants, dresses, etc. - and then by color within each category. This will make it easier to find what you need and keep your closet looking tidy.
- Make your bed every day
Making your bed may seem like a small task, but it can have a big impact on how your bedroom looks and feels. A made bed instantly makes your room look more put together and can give you a sense of accomplishment to start your day. Plus, crawling into a neatly made bed at night can be a great way to end your day on a positive note.
- Create a designated space for everything
One of the keys to keeping your bedroom organized is to create a designated space for everything. This means having a spot for your clothes, shoes, books, and any other items you keep in your bedroom. When everything has a place, it's easier to keep things tidy and find what you need when you need it.
- Don't let laundry pile up
Laundry can quickly take over your bedroom if you let it. To avoid this, make it a habit to do a load of laundry every few days instead of waiting until you have a mountain of clothes to wash. And when you do wash your clothes, be sure to fold and put them away right away instead of letting them pile up on your bed or in a corner.
- Use storage solutions
If you have limited space in your bedroom, storage solutions can be a game-changer. Invest in under-bed storage boxes, over-the-door organizers, and floating shelves to make the most of your space. Just be sure to keep these storage solutions organized and avoid overfilling them, as this can lead to clutter.
- Keep surfaces clear
One of the easiest ways to keep your bedroom looking tidy is to keep surfaces clear. This means avoiding the temptation to pile things on your nightstand, dresser, or any other surfaces in your room. Instead, keep only a few essential items on each surface and put everything else away.
- Take 15 minutes every day to tidy up
Finally, make it a habit to take 15 minutes every day to tidy up your bedroom. This can include putting away any clothes, vacuuming the floor, and making your bed. By doing this every day in a routine, you'll never need to deal with a mountain of work and you will always be confident about having guests at your house.
