5 easy ways to organise your bedroom for better sleep

With the need for bulky clothes and extra blankets, the rainy season becomes a time when bedroom clutter can really pile up.  

To keep your bedroom neat and tidy, stick to simple, classic, functional pieces of furniture.

Even though it’s time to add cosy elements in the home, homeowners still need to maintain an uncluttered and serene bedroom.  

After all, studies have shown that what you are thinking of when you drift off to sleep affects how well you sleep, and also influences your wake-up mood. 

If your last image before you dropped off was chaos and mess, chances are you’re not setting the scene to get good quality sleep. 

Here are some tips on how to keep your bedroom clutter-free and harmonious:

1. Audit the furniture 

Take a look around the room and identify what furniture you can move out. 

If the armchair in the corner is always draped with clothes and piled with unused pillows, it’s time for it to go.  

Plain, light colours and, ultimately, simple white bedding go a long way in creating a haven of serenity.

2. Be minimalist about surfaces 

When it comes to bedside and dressing table surfaces, choose the bare minimum amount of items to display. 

Your bedside table doesn’t really need anything more on it other than a lamp, a book and perhaps a jar of hand cream.  

Get into a daily habit of tidying the surfaces and packing away anything that shouldn’t be on them. 

3. Sort out the worst clutter culprit 

So often we leave clothes draped on furniture. Since it’s been colder, clothing like jackets tend to find their way onto the back of chairs because we know we’re going to wear them again. 

If the armchair in the corner is always draped with clothes and piled with unused pillows, it’s time for it to go.

It seems like too much trouble to put them back into closets. However, investing in a great storage system that makes your closets more user-friendly and your clothes more easily accessible is worth it. 

Consider getting something like a space tower, a system of internal drawers that can be fully extended so it is accessible from three different sides. 

When you can quickly find and remove what you want from your cupboard with ease, you’ll have no problem being diligent about putting your clothes away each day. 

4. Revamp your bedding 

When it comes to bedding, watch out for ‘colorful’ patterns and hues as they can easily add to the clutter.  

Sure, zebra striped sheets may be fun, but it’s the plain, light colors and, ultimately, simple white bedding that go such a long way in creating a haven of serenity.  

When it comes to bedside and dressing table surfaces, choose the bare minimum amount of items to display.

Also, if you find yourself dumping half the cushions and pillow on the floor at night so that you can sleep comfortably in the bed, you’ve got more ‘cozy’ clutter than you need which means you could benefit from a ‘slim down’. 

5. Reconsider what you use your bedroom for 

If you’ve got the home entertainment center firmly ensconced in the bedroom, or you’ve set up a home office from your bed, pull your feet out of the tangle of cables for a moment and give a bit more thought to whether this is the best idea. 

Yes, it’s comfy, but it also compromises the bedroom as your peaceful sanctuary where you can leave the busy, noisy life behind. 

You can reclaim your place of peace by reconsidering what the bedroom is for.
