When you picture the ideal place to rest at the end of the day, what do you see? It’s unlikely that you imagine piles of laundry on your floor — their state of cleanliness a mystery — or piles of tangled jewelry sitting on top of your dresser.
No, a place that promotes rest and relaxation is one that is clean and organized. If your bedroom has devolved from a place to get your beauty sleep into a maelstrom of clothing and clutter, check out the following tips to organize and arrange your room.

Make Your Bed
If you don’t have time to do anything else, at least take the time to make your bed in the morning. It takes only a couple of minutes, is completely free, and creates at least one place in your bedroom that has order. Your future self with thank you for taking the time to make bedtime a little bit easier and your bedroom a little bit more pleasing to look at.
Sell, Donate, Trash, Store
Before you can really organize your bedroom, you’ll need to comb through your belongings and decide what doesn’t fit, isn’t loved, or isn’t needed anymore. Go through all of your clothing, shoes, books, accessories, and whatever else you keep in your bedroom.
You can choose to hold a yard sale (especially if you’re getting rid of things throughout your home) or donate items you don’t want to keep. If items are worn out or aren’t good enough to be hand-me-downs (we’re looking at you, underwear), then toss them in the trash.
If you discover items that you want to keep but don’t necessarily have room for, put them in the “store” pile. These could be items like seasonal clothing, items for special occasions, and other items that you don’t use year round but don’t want to get rid of. These items can be put in a climate-controlled storage unit until you need them.
Use Your Bed For Storage
No, this doesn’t mean stuffing your clothes under the covers. It does mean, however, that there are ways to use your bed frame for storage. You can purchase rolling storage bins that fit underneath your bed to keep clothing, shoes, and other belongings. You can also find headboards with storage shelves on them or you can install floating shelves above your headboard for extra room to display decor and memorabilia. You can also find footboards with storage space or you can purchase a storage ottoman for things like blankets, extra sweatshirts, and seasonal items.
Use Vertical Space
Your walls are a great place to create more storage. Hang hooks for bags and coats, a pegboard for jewelry, and additional shelving if you need it for books. The more places you have to hang and store things, the less cluttered your floor and furniture will be.
Rent A Storage Unit
If space is really limited, a storage unit is your next best option for organization. Store seasonal items, books you want to keep but don’t have room for, and clothing for special occasions. Contact Just Store It! in Kingsport today to find the right size storage unit for you.
