How To Organize A Bedroom

With Too Much Stuff

If you have a smaller bedroom or even if your bedroom is a good size, but you just don’t seem to have enough space for everything, read on for some helpful tips to teach you how to organize a bedroom with too much stuff.

Invest In A Wardrobe

How To Organize A Bedroom With Too Much Stuff

If you need more closet space, why not consider investing in, or building a wardrobe to place along one of your empty walls. A wardrobe is a great and relatively inexpensive way to give you more space for your clothes and toiletries when you’ve exhausted your existing closet space. It can also be a gorgeous design feature, especially if you can find one with some character like the one above.

Install Sliding Shelves In Your Wardrobe

If the wardrobe has shelves, you should consider installing pull out shelves on its existing shelves to make organizing and accessing your things such as perfumes, makeup, toiletries, and more incredibly simple and convenient.

Clear Out The Excess

Go through all of your clothing and possessions and decide if you really need them or not. If you haven’t worn or used something in the last year then consider donating, storing it elsewhere, or tossing it. It doesn’t make sense to have something taking up prime real estate in your bedroom if you don’t need it.

Hang In Categories

Group your clothing and hang it up by categories such as pants, shirts, skirts, dresses, and jackets. It will make things easy to find and will free up extra lower space. For example, if all or your shirts are in one section, you will have a nice lower section to place a shoe rack or a selection of cubbies for extra storage.

Stack Sweaters

Fold your sweaters and put them in neat piles on a shelf. The above pictures from Pinterest  which originally were pinned from, show you a neat way to fold sweaters. Hanging them will make them lose their shape. Invest in a few cubbies to place on their side to pile your sweaters in. This will keep your stacks tidy and prevent them from tipping over.

Use Hooks For Hanging

Install some shower hooks on the inside of the closet door or on empty wall space for hanging your purses, bags, or scarves.

Organize Drawers

Keep similar items together in your drawers. Assign one drawer for your socks, undergarments, t-shirts, etc. If you don’t like folding, try folding your t-shirts once in half, length-ways and then carefully roll it up from the neck to the bottom. This will keep them wrinkle free and easy to store neatly in your drawers. The above picture from give you a great idea for a lingerie drawer layout.

Use The Space Under Your Bed

Don’t forget to use the prime storage space underneath your bed. Invest in some plastic rectangular storage containers just high enough to easily slide under your bed. These containers are great for storing extra bedding and other non-essentials.

Utilize Foot Of The Bed Space

Invest in a long storage ottoman or chest that you can place at the foot of the bed for storage. The picture above from Pinterest and originally coming from shows a chest that has been converted into an amazing storage area for office supplies.  It will also double as a great extra seat to use while putting on your socks and shoes, especially if your bed is rather high for sitting on.

Access Extra Wall Space

Use your wall space to the fullest. Small mounted shelves on the walls can be used to store and display your decorative and treasured possessions. Hooks attached below your shelves are a great way to neatly store your necklaces and keep them from tangling.
