Wouldn't it be nice to go to sleep every night and wake up in a beautifully clean, clutter-free bedroom? Luckily for you, we have put together the ultimate guide to decluttering your room as best you can. It has been scientifically proven that your sleep hygiene can benefit greatly from a decluttered environment, so it's really important to give your bedroom a thorough declutter from time to time. Here are 5 simple steps to help you declutter your room properly.
Keep the essentials
When decluttering your bedroom, it's always best practice to stick to the bare minimum, which means only keeping your ultimate essentials. When sorting through all of your belongings, it's important to ask yourself ‘Do I really need this?’. A great rule to follow is, if you haven't used it in a year, you won't be using it again. It may be difficult to throw away certain items, and of course it's okay to keep a few objects that are special to you. A storage unit is always a great solution for those that require a little extra space.
Bin it or donate it
Once you've decided what you're keeping and what you’re not, it's important to sort your belongings into dedicated piles. These can be labelled keep, donate, sell or bin. If you can, it's always a great option to donate some of your old belongings to a charity of your choice. If you believe that something you own has second hand value, consider listing it on an online auction site such as eBay or Gumtree. This way you can make a little extra cash from the things that you love.
Sort the wardrobe
For many, the wardrobe often gets forgotten. Our clothing collections often grow fairly steadily, and we can forget to regularly declutter the wardrobe or chest of drawers. It's important to be ruthless about what you don't wear, as decision fatigue can be a real thing when getting ready in the morning. Try on any clothes if you're unsure of sizing, and again, if you feel there is value and the piece is in good condition, then consider selling online. Decluttering your wardrobe will not only save you time getting ready, but it will also create more storage space for other belongings you wish to keep.
Keep accessories minimal
We're all guilty of going overboard on bedroom accessories sometimes, but these items can collect dust and create a more cluttered ‘feel’ in our bedrooms. Invest in some quality furnishings and minimalistic accessories to give your bedroom a luxury feel. It's also important to stick to your bedroom colour scheme, as clashes or colour can create a busy, cluttered atmosphere.
Get rid of unnecessary furniture
To really make your bedroom look clutter free, take a look at the furniture in your space and ask yourself if you really need it. Freeing up crowded floor space will broaden your room and will make the space feel light and airy.
