Create your retreat to relax and unwind – it's not as hard as you think! I want you to make your bedroom a welcoming place. Your master bedroom should be your place for relaxation, not stress, but if it's messy and disorganized, this will be hard to achieve. No matter the reason for it, the disorganization is the enemy of relaxation. The mess is the last thing you see before falling asleep and the first thing to catch your eyes in the morning.
Before you get started with the organization process, be sure that you've decluttered all the stuff that you no longer use, need, or love. If you look for more information about this process, check out this Decluttering Master Closet Challenge blog to help get you motivated.
So, to start today, you should not have any more "stuff" under the bed or clothes lying wherever there is an open space.
I am sure many of you have not organized their bedroom in a while?
Reorganizing your bedroom should not be a difficult task; it should contain only the things that you need to achieve a peaceful environment.
Imagine entering a very serene bedroom with calming soft colors, a luxurious pampering bed, some soft lighting, a comfortable chair for reading or relaxing.
No matter the size of your bedroom, there is always a way to give him some attention and get it organized.
Your master bedroom should be a room for you to unwind. Try to visualize what could make it more appealing and how you would like your space to perform. If you wish to read, try to create a cozy reading space. If you want to pamper yourself, create a little spot for you to do your make-up or give yourself a manicure.
Remember that you don't need a big space to make it unique!
Get your mind ready for the challenge!
Taking out everything from your bedroom
Cleaning and dusting the mattress, under the bed, the light fixture, the doorknobs, the baseboards, the bedside tables.
Wash the linens, curtains, bed skirt, mattress protector, and pillows.
Take the time right now to plan these tasks into your week.
Put it on your calendar.
Decluttering and organize the bedside tables.
Create a relaxing corner with a big comfy chair, so you always have a calming place to retreat to.
Add a side table to put a relaxing candle, a cup of tea, and a bouquet.
Look for bedside tables that provide extra storage. Choose a mix of open and closed compartments to hide the essentials that are not pretty and to display the favorite treasures.
Add a trunk or storage bench at the foot of the bed; it is a great place to stack extra linens or out-of-season clothing. But be careful; don't let the top of the trunk become another incentive for clutter.
Create a little spot where you can do your make up.
Get a rolling cart; there are so many ways you can use it in your bedroom.
Add functional lighting like reading light or bedside lamp. You can also add a dimmer to your switch.
Make it cozy.
Just make sure that everything has a place and there is a place for everything!
I want you to visualize how you want your bedroom to look like when it will over.
Would you like to add a coat of paint or some wallpaper, do you want to change the doorknobs, or add some shelves?
Think to add some soft reading light.
Print your checklist.
Prepare your tools and accessories.
Order and buy what you need.
Spend some time on the layout so you can plan a better flow.
Prepare the list where you want to donate, recycle, or sell.
Take a picture of your space before you start
Clear off any furniture you have in the bedroom
Clean up the bedroom
Put it back…
Put back in place, bedside tables, dresser, chair, mirror, the less you have, the less you will be tempted to clutter them
Put some bowls or trays on your dresser and bedside table to hold jewelry, cell phones.
Add a clothes-hanging rack to the door leading to the master bathroom. Use this rack to hang your robe, nightclothes.
Label the under-the-bed storage bins and boxes with all the items inside.
Framed photos are okay to keep but keep them to a minimum
Put some extra blanket in a basket
Keep only the essentials in your nightstand. Keep only items that you regularly use before bed or upon waking. Store a book, a lamp, a pen and paper, an alarm clock, some pills, kleenex, lip balm, hand cream, essential oils. Use a drawer organizer to keep things neat and tidy. You can also use a bedside caddy organizer.
Do not hesitate to get some inspirations ideas on Pinterest or Instagram.
Whatever you do, don't give up.
You need to do this process as often as necessary. The more you do it, the less work you have to do.
Make your bed every morning, it only takes a minute or so, when it's done your room look better.
Do ten minutes decluttering every day to keep it neat and tidy.
Keep your goal in mind
and don't give up!!!
