Home Storage for the Bedroom; Organizing the Bedroom; Organize to Reduce Bedroom Clutter
Rubbermaid’s Bento collection is designed to organize items, not just provide a storage place for them. The Bento Boxes have internal flex dividers, which provide you a method of dividing the space by creating unique sections where needed. You are able to stack boxes vertically, or inside each other. Bento Toppers can act as trays, covers or lids, providing an extra layer of organization for the Bento Boxes, or hiding what’s inside. The Bento Collection is made from sturdy materials, and the heavy-duty decorative fabric enables it to work within your home’s décorating scheme.
We have gone through a process to create a bedroom that is your very own sanctuary and refuge. First, we looked at picking out a theme for the bedroom – one that you found to be relaxing and comforting.
We looked at choosing colors that worked thematically with the theme you had chosen; and colors that were appropriate for use in a bedroom to make it as calm and serene as possible. This would ensure that you receive a good night’s rest; and it would also provide you a place in which to escape, to relax and rejuvenate yourself.
Next, we looked at the little things that you can add to your bedroom to make it uniquely yours, including items that would take you to a place where you can relive past experiences over and overusing your mind to take you on small vacations.
Bookshelves Store More Than Books
Book shelves can be used to store books, storage containers, storage baskets, collections and other items.
Organization in the Bedroom
Your bedroom is your sanctuary. It is the one place in your home that is yours. It is the one place that you can escape to when you need a few moments to yourself. Nothing can make a bedroom more uncomfortable as clutter. And all too often our bedroom is the final resting place for those things that you just don’t know what else to do with.
Let’s look at setting up systems to enable you to keep your bedroom free of clutter so that even when you are tired or rushed, your bedroom continues to be that special place to escape to.
Nightstands can be one of those places where clutter builds and grows. To solve this problem, consider placing a wicker basket beside each nightstand where all the clutter can be moved to in the morning. When you or your partner is ready to retire, the books and magazines can be easily retrieved.
A bookshelf in the bedroom also provides a place to put books and magazines. The books are easy to find for use right before retiring and are easy to place on the shelf upon arising.
Make sure that plenty of hangars are available so that it is easy to hang up clothes as they are taken off.
Jewelry can be placed in a jewelry box (see below) or stored with organizers such as those pictured above, reducing the clutter that jewelry can cause.
Using Storage Containers
Keep paper and pencil available so if it is needed when talking on the phone, or to quickly jot down notes to clear your mind so you can fall asleep without those concerns pressing in on you. These items can be stored in a decorative storage box that can also be used as a lap desk. Other things that can go in this box are clipped articles to read, personal letters set aside to read, stationary with envelopes and stamps for any replies you care to make to that personal correspondence, etc.
Stacks of hat boxes make nice storage containers for all the little things that you like to have convenient, but can make a bedroom look cluttered.
Storage boxes can also be used to store various craft supplies.
Shoes Cause Much Clutter
There are alternatives to having a pile of shoes in the corner of your bedroom or closet. Various alternatives, which can be purchased and/or built, are pictured at the right. Shoe storage that fits over a closet door is also available to help reduce the clutter if floor space is difficult to find.
Utilizing the storage solutions discussed here will go a long way toward changing an unruly bedroom into the sanctuary and refuge that you deserve.
