5 Steps To An Organized Bedroom

Don’t let trash clutter up your space.

This sounds so simple and easy, right? But how many of us just throw receipts, clothing tags, and other scraps of paper on the dresser, nightstand, or in a chair, thinking we will pick it up later? A good idea is to have a beautiful trash can accessible by the bed or in a corner of the room. By just seeing that trash can, you will be more likely to use it. Put the trash in the can immediately. If you allow it to sit somewhere, more than likely it will become a piece of clutter in your bedroom.

Don’t let your clothes take over.

If the laundry is dirty, place it in the hamper or basket. When the hamper is full, take it to the laundry room and wash the clothes. You may find this helps keep you organized. If the laundry has been done and is clean, hang it up or fold it and put it away immediately. My boys could live out their laundry baskets, I know that for sure! But, not only will this help keep your bedroom organized, but it will save you lots of time ironing what you want to wear later.

Make getting ready for work easier by keeping an organized closet.

Are all your clothes crammed together, shoes piled in a corner? Is your hamper overflowing? That’s not a good way to start your day. A neat and organized closet makes getting up and out of the house a lot faster and less stressful for everyone, and no matter what your current closet setup is, chances are you can make it better with just a few simple changes.

You may find that purchasing a closet organizing system is the best way to tame a chaotic closet. They are readily available at most stores, with many to choose from, and can be used to hang clothes, belts, and accessories. By hanging all these things up and keeping them tidy, your items may last longer, not only saving you space and time, but also money.

Avoid the temptation to just toss it on the bed.

You might find it is easy to toss things on the bed when in a hurry. The shirt that you wore once and needs to be hung up, the sweater that got left in the car, your empty winter purse after you moved all your stuff to your summer bag—it adds up. Do that too many times and that pile will grow to epic proportions. Pretty soon, you will have no room to sleep in your own bed.

Keep your bed clear from clutter.

Take 30 seconds to hang up that shirt or put the purse in a drawer. Make your bed the most comfy, relaxing, inviting space in the room. You may find that this truly lets you relax and get a better night’s rest.

By following these bedroom organization tips, you’ll not only have an organized bedroom but also your anxiety levels will lessen, your quality of sleep will improve, and you may even find that you now have more time to spend creating precious moments with the ones you love.

    Great tips, Helena! A pretty wastebasket sounds good. After my little one goes to college (xo) I will do that. I am sure my husband will keep his medical books there, though.
    I like the way you organize your blog. Looks clean. Good job.

  3. I needed to hear this. My bedroom is really big and also includes my home office/studio, so things like the desk and my dresser tend to pile up with things, things, things!

    1. Megan, thank you for your comment! Spaces with multiple functions can be so challenging because if feels no matter what we do, there’s always one are that’s in use. Try to keep things to a minimum and resist the temptation to “do it later”. Keep the habit of cleaning up as soon as an activity is finished and you’ll have your bedroom organized. Cheers!

  4. This has been an ongoing debate in the household I live in. My husband doesn’t like clean, neat and organized. I have so much to do in a day. But I agree on the neat and organized makes you feel more relaxed all the way around!

    1. Hi Jill. Thank you so much for stopping by! In households where organization is not seen eye-to-eye I recommend agreeing at least in the common use areas, like the kitchen, baths and maybe the family room. The personal spaces then are left alone for the “less organized” family member to live in his/hers own terms. I hope you can create a little haven for yourself! 🙂 Cheers!

    I need to buy a pretty hamper. Right now I just use my laundry basket for dirty clothes. When it gets full I toss them in the wash.

  6. I tell you – our clothes are taking over our room. We need to downsize!

  7. This is the first year that all of my kids are in school. So I am spending my days trying to get my home organized, deck uttered, and clean. We are also trying to establish good morning routines. You shared some great advice.

    1. Spellcheck changed my word de-clutter to Deck-uttered. LOL

    2. Hi Andrea. Thank you so much for your comment. It makes me happy you found some good tips for your family’s changing routine. Start small, one space at a time and things will slowly fall into place. It took us a looooong time to get the morning routine settled, so stay on top of them and don’t get discouraged. 🙂 Have a wonderful school year!

  9. I am bad at just dumping my clothes!! But it amazing just spending 2 minutes putting them away makes such a difference.

    1. Kelley, thank you for your comment! I know exactly what you mean because we all feel tempted to just drop and let go. What has change my own habits was the amount of work I’d have to face later when cleaning up. Stick to a simple 15 min a day routine and everything will always be in its place and your home will feel much calmer. Cheers!

  10. Brian Rodriguez says:

    Wow, this is great. You would hate my bedroom. I pretty much do the opposite of everything you suggested. But you are 100% correct when you say “When your bedroom is organized, your whole day just starts out better.” Also I love the site, very clean and organized…which makes perfect sense.

    1. Hi Brian. Thank you for coming by. I just love your comment, because as an organizer I’ve seen it all so there’s never judgement. I just want your bedroom to work for YOU! 🙂

  11. Jaimie Ramsey says:

    Right now our bedroom looks incredible, thanks to my husband putting away all the clothes and tidying his dresser. Our bad habit is letting clothes pile up on the loveseat in our bedroom. It’s such a tiny room that it doesn’t take much to make it look cluttered, but it also doesn’t take a lot of effort to clean and tidy it! I always forget how huge of it difference it makes to have the bed made neatly… gotta do that every day instead of every now and then! 🙂

  12. The 30 seconds declutter rule is the one I like most!

  13. Thanks for the great tips Helena! On days I do the linen laundry, I’ve found that if I do not remake the bed right after stripping it then I get busy and forget about it. It’s so discouraging to walk in to the bedroom at the end of the day, looking forward to bedtime, and there’s nothing on it!

    1. Hi Anne. Thank you for coming by.
      I had to smile as I read your comment because this has happened so many times to me as well! Yes, it is a pain to walk into our bedrooms just to see the “naked” mattress waving at us! 🙂
      I have been trying to use only 1 set per bed, so I know that when the laundry is done I need to place the bedding back on the beds. Give this one a try.

  14. The most important thing for me to note is to save my bed from my cloths! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  15. My problem is the clothes, clean or dirty they end up taking over my bedroom!

  16. Sara Wells says:

    I really appreciate these tips. I’m a newlywed who recently combined two households, so sometimes I feel like my home is a lost cause when it comes to organization. I’m hoping that following your blog will help!

    1. Thank you Sara and congratulations on your wedding! May you have a life-long of happiness and joy!
      Organization can be a challenge, but try to address one thing at a time, like the papers or the kitchen. Taking small bites will help you achieve success and feel motivated to continue. What’s your biggest area of struggle? I’d love to write for you about that.

      1. Sara Wells says:

        My toughest challenges are keeping up with the day-to-day cleaning when there are huge projects looming, and making the best use of small closet space.

  17. Salma, thank you so much for your comment. It made my day to learn that you’ll give it a try! I like to use a calendar and mark a cross on each day I accomplished my goal (which for met translates into “hit the gym”!). Let me know how this is working for you!

  18. Mrs. Waste Not says:

    Love the storage ottoman! I have a couple. Also, the garbage can in the bed room is a great tip. Sometimes I feel like I am drowning in receipts.

  19. I do my best to keep my bed clutter free. It’s so easy to let clothes, papers, purses, kid’s things, etc overtake it. Thank you for the great tips. I also like your article about keeping kid’s rooms clutter-free. Thanks for sharing!

  20. Noor Unnahar says:

    I must learn “clothes should not take over” . Hahaha

  21. Helene – My bedroom is probably the ONE room in my house that is organized, but I still like the ottoman idea, and I still do not have a good solution for my (costume) jewelry so I’ll check out your suggestions. Thank you! ~~ Truheartgal

  22. Brenda Ruiz says:

    My room is used (and cleaned!) the least of all in the house, I wish I had more time to spend in it!

  23. Great post! We just moved into a new house and I need to keep these tips in mind! The bedroom really only is a sanctuary if you keep it looking nice 🙂
