BedroomThe bedroom is one place in your house that tends to get messy very fast. Considering it is a place where you spend most of your time getting ready, organizing the space in your bedroom is essential. There are various things that you can organize to tidy your bedroom, but let us focus on the mess in your dresser and closet.

Cleaning Tips for Your Dresser

The dresser in your bedroom constitutes an integral part of the room. It holds most of your belongings needed for day-to-day life. For example, the first things you need to get ready before going somewhere are held in the dresser. Some simple steps to clean and organize your dresser are mentioned below:

Separate unused things: The first priority is to set aside things that you are ready to part with. Start doing this by taking out all the things from the drawers. Once you are finished, separate things that do not need to go back. By doing this, you will create enough space for the important things and there will be no further mess.

Like stays with like: Like items stay together. Make a pile of similar items like socks, tank tops, undergarments, handkerchiefs, etc. This way, they will be easily accessible and you will not lose any of these small items. If possible, assign one drawer for each pile. Label them for your convenience.

Maximize space: Place a bank of drawers above the headboard of your bed. Balance it with open and closed shelves, and drawers respectively. This will enable you to distinctively show what you want, and hide what you don’t intend to display. Also it saves a lot of ground-space. Have a light color above the headrest of the bed to create an illusion of space. Without the proper color, this arrangement of drawers can look clumsy and suffocating. Make sure you fasten them to the wall securely with screws into the wall studs.

Organizing Tips for the Closet

Closet space is one place that requires regular maintenance. Unlike other areas such as bookshelves, drawers, or junk boxes, a closet is an area which you use everyday. You need clothes, shoes, and accessories every single day. Also a closet should be arranged in a way so that it provides the maximum accessibility to all items and facilitates outfit selection. If you have less space in your closet, don’t worry, you are not alone. Many face the same problem. The following are a few tips on using closet space efficiently.

Maximize all of the available space: Use the floor of the closet and shelves wisely. People tend to waste a lot of space in these areas. Use the shelves to display your accessories which can be arranged according to their respective colors, so that picking them for a particular outfit is easy.

Make room for your shoes: Have a separate place for all the footwear you own. You can utilize the space above the shoe shelves for storing toiletries or other accessories.

Optimize your closet space: Install an overhead shelf for storage of large jackets and seasonal wear that are not required on a daily basis. Also installing double hangers and adjustable shelves can help to increase the utility of the space.
