Whether it's the linen closet or your home office, at the top of everyone's spring cleaning list is organization. Even if you de-clutter, clean, rotate and donate regularly, it seems like the neat stacks of linens or the filing system blows up within a couple of weeks after your re-organization efforts. So, what can you do?
Jennifer Adams has a few do-it-yourself tips for making the most of your space to make your organization efforts last. This week, we're tackling your master bedroom.
Clutter-Free Your Master Bedroom
When you’re ready to start organizing your home for spring, a great place to begin is your bedroom. This is an area of the home where you spend seven to eight hours a day. Investing a bit of time in creating a clutter-free sleeping space will have a positive impact on how you sleep and how rested you feel in the morning.
Begin by sorting through the entire room. Remove exercise equipment, desk, televisions and even photos. Get everything possible out of the room except for the bed or a few romantic touches, like candles. Remember, this is your relaxing space and an area where you can focus on you.
If you have to store items in your room, keep them hidden in storage ottomans, in rolling under bed storage, woven baskets, or even think vertically and add in some tall bookcases that you can organize with the items you need.
Speaking of clothing, be strict with yourself and donate or get rid of anything you haven't worn in the past six months. If you didn't wear it this winter, you probably won't wear it during the next one. Consider putting a bench at the foot of the bed your out-of-season clothing.
The thing to remember that is that your bedroom is your sanctuary and your place to decompress from daily life. Invest in yourself by taking a few moments to organize and de-clutter your personal space will enhance your overall quality of life.
