When it comes to keeping your bedroom neat and tidy, the main thing to assess is your storage! To keep and maintain a tidy bedroom you need to have different storage solutions. Solutions that work for the size of the bedroom and your own personal needs. Also, not forgetting the small everyday tasks that help keep the bedroom neat and tidy.
Here are the main things to consider for your bedroom to keep on top of organization, so you can enjoy your bedroom space no matter how big or small your bedroom is!
Tidy Bedroom Ideas
1. Appropriate Storage
Nightstands and or a dresser is a bedroom basic. But getting the right type of nightstand is the key to keeping your bedroom a clutter free zone. Depending on what other storage you have in your bedroom and the size of the bedroom is going to determine which furniture pieces you need.
If you have a bedroom on the smaller side, the nightstand needs to have a balance between the right amount of storage and something that’s not too heavy for the space. So try and mix and match the bedroom pieces to balance out the look.
This also means assigning space for things that belong to the bedroom only. Do not use your bedroom as a storage space for boxes and extra stuff. Find a home for every item. And if it doesn’t belong in the bedroom move to the appropriate room. Or throw it out.
2. Install Hooks
Installing hooks is an easy way to keep things out of the way and off the floor. You can get creative with the way you use the hooks. Maybe incorporate a decorative hook as piece in a mixed gallery wall in your bedroom.
Small hooks can be used to store your favourite jewellery chains and necklaces. And larger hooks can be used to hang your bags, hats and accessories. Don’t forget the back of the bedroom door to include on your list for lightweight jackets, hoodies and dressing gowns.
Mounting a few hooks in your bedroom will help free up some space if you’re running low on closet space!
3. Shelves & Ledges
Incorporating shelf units and ledges will give you the freedom to style your bedroom the way you like it without having to worry about taking up precious real estate surface on your dressers and nightstands.
Of course there’s nothing wrong with using the tops of your nightstands and dressers. As long the surfaces don’t cross over the line to over crowded. Style and decorate your nightstands thoughtfully. Adding a couple of shelves (if you have the space) will help distribute the decor a little more evenly.
4. Under The Bed Storage
All too often we can end up looking for things that have fallen under the bed instead of just using the under bed storage space. If you do have a bed that is off the floor making the most of the storage that’s underneath the bed is a must.
Under the bed is a great place for storing heavy seasonal clothes and extra bed linens. Using simple storage boxes and baskets for under the bed is the best way to keep it organized and to keep a tab on what you have under there.
A bed with built in drawers is a great option if you’d rather keep the under the bed clear.
5. A Storage Bench or Basket
Adding a storage bench at the end of your bed is a great option. If you haven’t got a storage bench or there isn’t space under the bed this might work for you instead. A place to keep shoes and other items out the way for a tidy bedroom.
If you haven’t the space for a storage bench then a laundry basket in the corner will be just as useful for worn clothes. A hamper or a basket will stop the temptation from leaving clothes on the floor or anywhere else in the bedroom!

Making your bed everyday! A really simple tip but often overlooked. Making your bed instantly changes how the bedroom feels. Having a ready made bed to come back to makes it feel like your own retreat. Which is exactly what a bedroom should be. A small daily task that makes huge difference!
