Our room says a lot about who we are. How we organize and decorate it is a reflection of our personality. Our room also serves as our personal space where we can relax at the end of a long day. However, having too much clutter takes away the calm and serenity of the room.
There are several ways in which we can arrange our room to make it more organized and pleasant. Here are 10 organizational hacks that can help you clear out clutter in your room.
1. Perimeter shelves
If there is one often unused space in the bedroom, that would be the 12-inch space below the ceiling. You can maximize the space by installing shelves along the perimeter of your bedroom walls, which can easily add more ways for you to be organized. You can put books and other knick-knacks that you don't often need and keep the stuff you reach out the most below the shelves.
2. Clothes rack in the corner
A clothes rack easily augments your closet space. Have one by the corner so it doesn't take up too much space and the room will instantly look organized. You can use a standalone clothes rack or you can install it against a wall to maximize space. Either way, a clothes rack is a simple but clever way to have more space in your ever-growing closet.
3. Bedframe with drawers
A bed frame can be more than just that. Drawers can make bedframes more useful. A small room will greatly benefit from a storage bed as it can have drawers as much as a bulky dresser. The extra space can be used to store clothes, files, books, and many other things.
4. Staircase bookshelf
A staircase bookshelf is one of the most clever ways to store books for every space-challenged booklover out there. Maximize a floor-length bookshelf by building a staircase that also doubles as an added bookshelf.
5. Folding desk
A fold-down desk may look like it's straight out of a sci-fi movie, this smart and space-saving design is more preferred over big desks. A fold-down desk gives you the flexibility to work in your own space and store it away when you're done.
6. Hooks at the back of your closet
Another way to organize your closet is by adding hooks at the back. That space is probably not being used for anything. So add more space by putting hooks at the back part of your closet to store items such as belts, scarves, beanies, or even jewelry.
7. Drawer organizers
Another easy organizational hack is drawer organizers. A desk drawer usually doubles as our catch-all - a space for everything and anything. A simple drawer organizer instantly makes it easier for you to look for that tiny little thing that you've been looking for since forever. Drawer organizers also free up more space in the drawer so you can store more items inside it.
8. Wall-mounted coat rack
A coat rack is a staple in almost every room in the house. You can save some space by installing hooks and racks on your wall to serve as your coat rack. An exposed coat rack also forces you to keep it neat and tidy.
9. Full-length mirror jewelry cabinet
Accessories can make or break an outfit, and a full-length mirror would help you see that. Save some room space by building a jewelry cabinet and a full-length mirror in one. Hang your necklaces, bracelets, and other accessories behind the mirror for quick and easy dress-up.
10. Space-saving nightstand
Picture ledges make the perfect space-saving nightstand. If your room doesn't have enough space for a traditional nightstand, then picture ledges are the way to go. You can install them by your bedside and have it hold your cellphone, eyeglasses, a clip-on lamp, and even a book.
