How to Declutter the Master Bedroom
A couple of years ago, I heard a speaker share how she was focusing on creating her master bedroom to be a place they loved. After hearing her say that, I realized I had given little attention to our master bedroom. When we moved, I decided to put more attention to creating a beautiful space.
Often this room can become cluttered and out of sorts because it is not one of the main areas of the house.
Focus on these zones within your master bedroom:
The tops of dressers are magnets for clutter. Clear everything off and evaluate what should be on your dresser. Ours holds my jewelry box, a decorative item, and a picture.
Closet & Drawers
Decluttering our clothes can be extremely hard but it is necessary. The best method is to empty the closet and drawers. Then go through each item. If you do not like it or it does not fit, get rid of it. Head to learn more about decluttering clothes here.
These are the other clutter magnets in the master bedroom. A nightstand really only needs to hold a few things: a clock, a notepad, pen, light, decor you love, and a book. Keep only the items you actually need at night. If your nightstand has drawers, make sure to empty them and only keep what is needed.
Under the Bed
This is the forgotten space but it needs just as much attention as the other spaces. If you like to use this space for storage, consider using nice containers such as these clear plastic ones.
If you have your books and magazines stored in your room, make sure to go through them and sort out what you do not need.
The main key, as you work in this space, is the same as always, remove what is no longer needed. Even if it leaves the space fairly bare, this will help you to then add in what you love.
