In week three of Clear the Clutter Challenge, we are sharing how to organize a small master bedroom!
Wondering how to organize a small master bedroom? Today’s post is full of tips to help you plus some bonus bedroom decluttering tips!
Welcome to week 3 of the challenge. We will be spending the next 7 days in the bedroom.
How to Organize a Small Bedroom
This week you can focus on decluttering your master bedroom or all of the bedrooms in your home. We will be focusing on kids’ spaces later in the challenge (this is when I will share tips for the kid’s bedrooms).
Before you can organize, you must declutter the space.
Go through the closet, under the bed, dressers, and nightstands. In each of these spaces do the following:
- Remove everything from the space.
- Sort into keep, trash, and donate piles.
The amazing thing is that after we declutter, we have less that actually needs to be decluttered!
Use a smaller dresser.
Many dressers for master bedrooms tend to be on the larger side. If you have a small bedroom, consider getting a smaller dresser. My husband and I share this dresser. I have two drawers and he has three.
Use closet organizers.
Closet organizers will help you use your space more efficiently. I am looking at some different options for our closet. Right now, I use a hanging organizer which is what holds my pants, shorts, and extra purses.
Pair down your wardrobe.
This can be hard but it helps pair down what you actually need to have. I tend to take on more of a partial capsule wardrobe approach. I share tons of tips for decluttering your clothes here. If you are wanting to try a capsule wardrobe, I love these tips to get started!
If you need to store clothes that are out of season, consider using under-the-bed storage for this.
Think before you purchase.
Ultimately, my best tip for organizing a small bedroom is to take on more of a minimalist approach. Less truly is more and the eliminating of excess will help cultivate a more peaceful look in your bedroom.
Before shopping ask yourself, is this actually needed?
You can even consider setting it aside and making a note on your phone to check back in on the item in two weeks. Often, I have found that during those two weeks, I realize I do not need the item. In the cases where I still think the item would be helpful, I then am able to purchase this knowing it is not on impulse.
