The bedroom is often a room in your home that you can often forget about decorating and sorting things out. It is the room that is least likely to see your guests walking through and nosing around, so you tend to lower it down on the priority list of household jobs. But, as you spend so much time in there sleeping and relaxing, it is important for it to feel as zen as possible. Taking a minimalist approach to your room could work in your favour. I wanted to share with you some of the ways you could do it.
Organising your drawers
One of the first areas to tackle would be your drawers. Many people would assume that your drawers are easily organised, but actually we can stuff everything in there and never really see what we have or what is even in there. Drawers of your lingerie, drawers for your activewear or socks, they could all do with a little more organising. Pull everything out of them and start again. Rolling or folding neatly and getting rid of the things you don’t need.
Clearing out your wardrobe
When was the last time you cleared out your wardrobe? Many people hold on to clothes in the hope they may fit or come back in fashion, but what you are doing is clogging your wardrobe up and making it harder to see what you have as a choice for things you do want to wear. Ever find yourself wearing the same thing all of the time? This could be the reason why. Give your wardrobe a huge clear out and be brutal with what you keep and dispose of.
Taking on storage ideas for your room
There are certain items in your bedroom that you can find impossible to make pretty and look organised without the right type of storage options. Makeup and shoes being two main culprits. This is when Pinterest can be an excellent source of inspiration, helping you to maximise the space you have and keep things neat and tidy.
Only having things in there that make you feel good
The main approach to a minimal life is to ensure that you only have things in your home that you want, that you need, or that you love and not necessarily in that order. So try and apply those rules to the things you have in your bedroom. The less clutter you have around, the more relaxed environment you are going to create.
Keeping things clean and tidy
Finally, once things are organised and in there place ensure you keep things tidy. It is important to give your bedroom a huge deep clean while it is in this tidy state. This will also encourage you to help keep things that way. A clean and tidy space mentally can work wonders with your mindset and could even improve the quality of sleep you have.
I hope that this has inspired you to take a minimalist approach to your bedroom.
