- Your night table should look the part of the sanctuary that will help you fall asleep. Display calming things like a table lamp, small decorative vase with fresh flowers, and the book you're currently reading.
- Conceal unattractive things like hand and foot creams, eye masks, menthol balms, remote controls, and other unsightly items in the drawer of your night table.
- Control the clutter inside your night table drawer with cutlery organizers (find similar at Robinsons Department Store) that can hold tiny, easy-to-miss bits and bobs.
Stash bedding sets in their matching pillowcases so they won’t get mixed up with other sets. This way, one look and you’ll know which set to get. No more pulling out an “orphaned” pillowcase from your beddings pile!
Hide your bed linen in a lovely suitcase that you can leave out in plain sight, if you have no more room left in your closets. A vintage suitcase can add a quirky, romantic vibe to your bedroom.
Use plastic underbed storage organizers for large items like comforters, heavy blankets, and other seasonal bed linen. Choose a container with wheels that’s low enough to be shoved underneath your bed. Add cedar balls (available at hardware and storage shops) to keep insects away.
Have at least three sets of bed linen on rotation for clean, crisp sheets.
