How to Declutter Your Bedroom

Your bedroom is the space in your home where you sleep, and where you want to feel rested and at ease. It is difficult to feel fully restful if your bedroom is cluttered and messy. Having a big declutter of the room will help you to enjoy a lovely nights rest. Here are some steps to get your bedroom decluttered.

Wardrobe

Start with the wardrobe and begin making a pile of the things that you no longer wear, or need. One rule of thumb is if you haven’t worn it in a year then you probably aren’t going to wear it again, so it would probably be a prudent idea to get rid of it, rather than having it in your wardrobe taking up space. If there are shoes that you don’t wear give them to charity with the rest of the stuff and know that not only are you decluttering your life of excess ‘stuff’ but that someone else will benefit from your kindness.

Dresser and Bedside Table

After the wardrobe now go to the dresser and bedside table. There may be a lot of things that have built up there from you putting them there when you are laying in bed, so all these can be returned to wherever they go. You don’t need anything on the bedside table except the essentials, so get rid of anything that you really don’t need there, and be ruthless about having a clear space.

Under the Bed

Under the bed is a place where stuff often builds up and one way to keep this area clear and clean is to use storage containers. Fort Knox storage boxes are a great way of keeping stuff under the bed, where it can be accessed easily and you will be able to move the stuff out of the way easily when you want to vacuum under the bed. If you really can avoid it, remove everything out from under the bed, and keep that space clear of anything, but if you have to keep things under the bed for storage then go for the storage boxes.


In Your Drawers

Clearing out your drawers will help you to create a lot of space, and free up the space so that you can find things easily when you need them. Go through all the contents of your drawers and decide whether you really need it, and as with the wardrobe, if you haven’t worn it in a year then you probably won’t wear it again. Make a pile of the things that you want to keep, and what can be given to charity.

If In Doubt Throw it Out

One great rule of thumb with decluttering your bedroom is the ‘if in doubt, throw it out’ rule. If there is something that you really aren’t sure about whether to keep or save, then get rid of it. This is one way to ensure that you get the job done, and do not end up keeping a lot of stuff that you really can live without!
