4 Things You Can Do To Declutter The Bedroom Today

Let your boudouir breathe by throwing out a couple of key items


It only makes sense that the room designated for rest should be neat, relaxing, and clutter-free. However, since we don't always have free time at our disposal, there are days when we unintentionally let mess conquer our bedrooms. To help you out, here are four easy must-dos that can help you keep your sleeping space a happy place: 

1. Declutter your closet. 

We'll let you in on a secret—a neat closet can help you see everything and get whatever you need in a snap. After making space for new clothes, adding a mirror on one side gives you a place where you can check your overall look, plus a way to create an illusion of bigger space, too. Don't forget to install a wall-mounted rack for your shoes as well.

2. Throw out old and musty bedding. 

Since it's not something we visit often, we tend to forget about the piles of bulky pillows, blankets, and mismatched pillowcases inside the linen closet and it easily turns into a mess. If it's inside your bedroom, don't forget to go through what you already own to see if others can benefit from sheets you don't use anymore.

3. Throw out sentimental items. 

Dealing with your personal items is like a Band-Aid or temporary solution to your clutter and organizing woes. For long-term solutions, you need to be strong enough to let go of everything without reminiscing as this will only make it harder for you to give your belongings away. As Lewis of Meet The Robinsons always says, "Keep moving forward."

4. Sort through your books and papers. 

If you're the type who keeps your favorite reads in the bedroom, it might be a good idea to go through them and see which ones are worth keeping. For those who are loyal followers of the KonMari method, you probably already know a few useful hacks when it comes to cleaning out things—if not, Lifestyle vlogger, Lavendaire, came up with a video tutorial that can help you make your transition easier.
