Benefits of a Clutter-Free Bedroom

There is something calming and comforting about being organized, it turns your bedroom into a sanctuary that enhances productivity and improves your physical health and mental well-being. While an organized bedroom fosters serenity, clutter interferes with your sleep by overstimulating your brain and causing you to feel overwhelmed, depressed, and anxious.  How can you be expected to relax and get a good night's rest when your bedroom looks like it's losing a game of Jumanji?

A messy bedroom also collects pests, dust, mold, mildew, and other allergens, which can cause health issues like respiratory problems. It can even be a safety hazard if it causes you to trip over stuff that is strewn on the floor.

Decluttering can be difficult even when you are religious about getting rid of unused items. Sometimes it can feel as though every time you get rid of one thing, two more take its place. Even if your clothes seem to be multiplying like rabbits, storage furniture can help you to corral the chaos.

How to keep your bedroom clean and organized

Rest assured, you can improve the quality of your life by creating extra storage space that keeps your bedroom neat and tidy. To help, we’ve put together some of the best pieces of storage furniture and expert tips that will help you to transform a chaotic bedroom into a calm and serene space.

To manifest your dream bedroom, you must first tackle clutter and there is no better way to do that than with storage furniture. Decluttering without storage furniture is like brushing your teeth while eating Oreos. Storage furniture like beds, dressers and nightstands keep your bedroom clean-and-tidy by helping you to organize things like clothes and bedding.

Opt for a Storage Bed

Storage beds are one of the most discreet ways of decluttering. Your bed is the largest piece of furniture in your bedroom, so it affords a lot of storage without taking up additional space. These beds can stow everything from bedding and seasonal clothing to luggage and hiking boots.  Whether you choose a loft, a bed with compartments, or the adjustable height feature, you can find one that both delights and inspires.

Keep Clothes in a Dresser or Wardrobe

Dressers are the perfect storage solution for organized living. While the inside of a dresser provides ample space for your clothes and other stuff, the top of the dresser can be used to display items like a picture frame or jewelry, it can also be a place to stash functional items like reading materials, glasses, and electronics. A wardrobe takes organization to a whole new level. They come in multiple configurations and customizable combinations that can include hanging rods, clothing rails, drawers, adjustable shelves, and boxes. Dressers and wardrobes are available in many different styles, so, whether you are seeking a traditional design, vintage eclectic, timeless mid-century modern, quirky and whimsical, or glam, you can find a stylish dresser that you will love.

Maximize Storage Space with a Closet System

Is your closet overflowing? Does it look like a game of Tetris gone wrong? If so, maybe it's time to level up with a closet organization system. These systems can be configured to your specific needs and the dimensions of your closet. A bespoke configuration can help you to take advantage of every inch of your closet by incorporating shelves, drawers, hanging rods, hooks, and over-the-door hangers. An open boutique-style closet organizer can display your prized possessions like jewelry, handbags, and hats.

Putting together your own closet organization system will look like custom built-ins but without a designer's hefty price tag. The precise configuration will depend on the space you have to work with and what you want to store or display. Storage closet furniture comes in a range of styles from simple and sleek to glamorous.

Pick the Right Nightstand

Complete your bedroom with nightstands on each side of your bed. A nightstand is the ideal bedside accessory particularly when it incorporates storage spaces like drawers and cubbies. The combination of a tabletop and storage capabilities make nightstands both functional and versatile. All your PM essentials are within easy reach on the top surface and drawers are a great place to keep things like your eye mask, evening beauty products, and magazines.

Nightstands incorporating wireless charging features are eminently functional while others are bursting with personality. So, whether you are looking for one night stand or two, they run the style gamut from subdued and calming to fun and flirty with a free-spirited vibe of boho-chic.

Choose Multifunctional Accents

Integrating multiple furnishings into one dual-function piece is one of the best ways to increase storage and maximize space without sacrificing functionality. You may want to consider other bedroom storage furniture like an ottoman bench, trunk, chest, vanity, glass display case, bedside caddy, and TV console.

Keep Everything in its Place


Having everything in a designated space makes it easy to locate when you need it, and you can take your organizational efforts up a notch by adding dividers to your drawers.

Take advantage of unused vertical space with wall-mounted or door-mounted storage like shelving, pegs, hooks, and hangers. These easy storage solutions can fit into the most cramped bedroom, and they are ideal for coats, bags, scarves, hats, jewelry, shoes, and accessories.

Put the architectural quirks and odd corners of your bedroom to work as storage areas. An alcove or a recess can be used to accommodate customized shelving. Installing shallow wardrobes in these areas or along a whole wall can create a streamlined look and add lots of storage space.
