It’s a Monday morning. The alarm didn’t wake you and now you’re super late for office. On the way to the washroom, you trip on a pile of dirty clothes lying on the floor. After getting out, you can’t find the appropriate clothes from your messy closet. It’s hopeless to even search for the right watch or jewelry from your drawers. Forget those, you can’t even find your comb! Whew, what a nightmare.
Now you get why having an organized bedroom is extremely important. But you don’t end up cleaning and organizing it because it seems like such a chore at times. Or sometimes you just don’t know where to start, or you simply run out of space. Well luckily in this blog, I have covered 41 tried and tested bedroom organization hacks that are going to change your life! Your life (and your bedroom) is never going to be the same again.
41 Amazing Bedroom Organization Hacks You’ll Love
1. File Folding All Your Clothes
One of my most favorite organization hacks is file folding. This not only saves a lot of drawer space but also allows you to see everything you own at one single glance. You’ll be surprised to find out how many towels and clothes you can store in your drawer this way.
All you have to do is a vertical fold instead of a horizontal fold. For added organization, you can also color coordinate your clothes so that everything looks aesthetically pleasing, and choosing and matching outfits becomes simpler.
2.Magazine Holder For Storage
We can all know how worrisome hot tools can be. Their cords always get tangled and sometimes they’re so bulky that they take up valuable drawer space.
An easy solution is to get hold of a magazine holder and place it on your vanity. You can store all your hot tools in there for easy accessibility. You can even decorate the holder to match your room’s decor.
3. Hang Your Hair Supplies!
We all know that rubber bands and bobby pins are literally everywhere. You can find them in the weirdest and most random spots. But it becomes almost impossible for you to find a single one in your time of need. Well, you’re not going to have that problem anymore.
You can stick some small bins with some adhesive tape on the inside of your cabinet doors for your hair ties, brushes, etc. You can also attach a magnetic strip so that bobby pins and nail clippers will stick to it and won’t get lost.
4. Hang Your Toiletries
While we are on the topic of hanging things, did you know that you could actually hang your toiletries? I know you might think I’m crazy, but hear me out.
Just attach a second tension mounted shower curtain rod close to your wall. Then you can use some ‘C’ curtain rings and easily clip up your toiletries. Your shower does not get overcrowded this way. Try it out and thank me later.
5. Add A Cord Holder
Cords can easily make your organized bedroom look messy and unorganized. They are long and look ugly just hanging around. And the more the appliances you have, the more difficult it gets to handle all these cords.
I have just the solution for you—add a cord holder. You can either stick this to the appliance itself, or to your wall, desk bedside table, etc. This way you can neatly store all your cords and they will never get tangled or disorganized again.
6.Blanket To The Rescue
If you have younger siblings or kids who leave toys, legos, and puzzles all over your bedroom floor, you know what a nightmare it can be. So before playtime, lay down a blanket on the ground. Then when it’s time to clean up, all you have to do is gather the blanket and dump all their toys back in their basket. A simple and easy fix!
7. Easy Way To Store Your Yoga Mat
Although your yoga mat is one of those things that don’t take up a lot of space, it is very very awkward to store. It just doesn’t fit anywhere. You can fix this easily by putting your mat underneath your shelf within the shelf brackets. This not only is a very easy and accessible way to store your mat, but also looks very chic and organized. You’re welcome!
8. Store Shoes To Save Some Space
A person can never have too many shoes. It’s just one of those things that you can’t get enough of. But storing them can be a real pain. They just take up so much space and this is inconvenient, especially if you’re a hoarder like me.
All you have to do to combat this situation is to store your shoes heel to toe. Place one shoe with the front-facing towards you and the other one with its back facing you. In this way, you can save so much space and you’ll have enough left to store your new shoes!
9. Double Up Your Hangers
There are just so many clothes that you have to hang in your closet such as formal shirts, dresses, shrugs, skirts, etc. But sometimes there just isn’t enough space in your closet to hang all of these.
So the next time you drink soda, don’t throw away the can, because you can easily use a can tab to double hang your clothes. Put one hole of the tab through one hanger, and then hang your other hanger through the other hole of the tab. This way you can not only save some hanger space but also pair your clothes that go together.
10. Just Have A Drop Zone
Whether you like it or not there is so much stuff that doesn’t really have a place in your bedroom. But they just have to be there. Well, for things like these, just have a drop zone.
You can keep a cute basket near your door and just drop all these things into it. So even though whatever you put in it might be junk, it will look nice and organized. Let’s keep this our dirty little secret!
11. Block Unnecessary Clutter
Whenever we spot an empty space, we usually clutter it up in 0.5 seconds. Your poor dresser top, bedside table, or side table is a victim to this. But there is a simple way to block all this clutter. Just decorate the top of your dresser and tables with something that matches the vibe of your room. This way not only will you avoid unnecessary clutter, but also make your room look super cute and trendy.
12. Shower Hooks to the Rescue
Don’t you just hate it when you’re unable to find your purses and backpacks when you need them? They’ll probably be lying under a pile of clothes somewhere. Well, you can fix this problem by hanging them up using some shower hooks. These are conveniently bent to the side to accommodate all your purses and bags.
13. Conceal Wires
Sometimes you can’t stow away a cord because you use that appliance every single day and it needs to be plugged in. But you are also insanely bothered by the presence of that cord just hanging out in your room. You can easily use some tiny adhesive hooks to camouflage these cords behind furniture pieces so that they don’t hamper your room design anymore.
14. Label the Inside of Your Drawers
Even though you know where everything goes in your drawers, a nice little trick is to label all these places. Because when you are in a hurry or just want to put things away your mind will register these labels and you will be forced to put all your knick-knacks away in a systematic manner.
It may not work for everyone but it is a neat little hack for those who might want to give it a try. Also, the labels just make everything look 10 times more organized than it actually is.
15. Repurpose Old Bowls And Dishes:
You can easily repurpose your old bowls and dishes to store little knick-knacks such as medicines, clips, jewelry, etc. in your bedside table. This way, everything in your bedside drawer will have a place. You also don’t have to purchase any extra materials for this hack.
Make sure to put a non-slip mat underneath your bowls and dishes so that they don’t move around when you open and close drawers.
16. Store Tissues in Cups
Sometimes cardboard tissue boxes take up a lot of valuable table space in your bedroom. They also look out of place and ugly. Well, here’s an easy hack to solve that problem. Store your tissues somewhere concise and easily portable like an unused cup. This will reduce the space the bulky tissue box uses up, and also look cute in your bedroom. An awesome little hack if you ask me.
17. Sorting Station
Create a sorting station for all your laundry. This way you can separate your whites from your colors, your undergarments, socks, and whatever else you may want to separate. You can also create small baskets for your family members. These baskets will look much better than just a heap of laundry on your bedroom or bathroom floor; and will also make your job a lot easier when it comes to doing laundry.
18. Repurpose A Wine Rack
Just because you’re not big on wine doesn’t mean you can’t use a wine rack for organization. You can repurpose a wine rack to store your messy little things such as markers, crayons, and your other stationery items. Its long and narrow compartments are perfect for storing things like yarn, wool, ribbons, and threads as well.
19. Dresser Drawer Under The Bed
Say you found an old dresser on your curb. Before ignoring it and walking away you should maybe think about repurposing it.
You can slip these dresser drawers under your bed. They can blend in much better than plastic bins and you can even add wheels to them. These can provide some great extra storage space that you might require in your room. You can also easily sand these down and paint them to match your interior a little better.
20. Organize All Your Makeup
Your makeup can really clutter your vanity table. Your palettes and compact cases can sometimes be all over the place and be difficult to track down. This is where a magnet can come to your rescue.
A magnet is an organizer’s true friend. You can just stick magnets behind your makeup cases and put them up on a magnetic board. This way your vanity will be clear and everything will be visible and within your reach. Your makeup can also double as some really chic decor.
21. Tidy the Unruly
Tidying and organizing even the tiniest things in your drawer also makes a lot of difference. If you have a home office, you can get a muffin tin to neatly organize things like staplers, paper clips, rubber bands, etc. in your drawer.
This trick can also be used for your jewelry drawer (earrings and bracelets), and even your school supplies drawer. Just put a non-slip mat underneath your muffin tin so that it doesn’t slide around and you’re good to go!
22. Pegboard It
One of the simplest and most convenient methods of organizing your closet is to just put up a pegboard in the closet. The pegboard is very versatile and can hold a lot of different things such as your hats, backpacks, jewelry, sunglasses, scarves, and much more. This way, everything will look tidy and will be easily accessible.
23. Binder Clips for Organization
Say you have rolls of wrapping paper or big drawing sheets and you don’t know how to store them without them taking a lot of space—or getting dirty and crinkled. A simple solution would be to use binder clips to clip them up. This way, you can easily store them in a compact manner and they will look brand new whenever you want to use them.
24. Add Shelving to Your Dresser’s Sides
If you have an independent standing dresser with nothing on its sides then you can easily add some spice racks to hold your books, magazines, college papers, or other small knick-knacks. They really maximize the storage capacity of your dresser. Go ahead and try out this interesting hack.
25. Roll Your Towels
Instead of horizontally folding all your towels and making space for them in your closet, you can easily roll them vertically and store them in a much more compact manner. These rolled towels can also double as decor in your bathroom. A neat little trick isn’t it?
26. Sneaky Cabinets
You can never have too much storage space. In order for all of your belongings to be organized in a neat manner, you require extra storage space, and this hack provides you just—but with a sophisticated touch to it. Install shelves behind your picture frames. This way you can hide your clutter and also have a nice addition of decor to your room.
27. Utilize Space Over The Door
Our next hack goes hand in hand with the one mentioned above. We all have that extra space over the door that doesn’t really get utilized. Well, you can easily add a horizontal shelf and store all your things such as excess linens and towels, college supplies, books, and much more. These won’t take up extra space in your bedroom too, pretty cool, right?
28. Hang A Tiered Basket
You can hang fruit baskets over your shower curtain rod so that you can store all your excess shower products and tools without overcrowding your shower. This hack not only provides you easy access to your products but also organizes them.
29. Cutlery Tray
If you don’t like the look of pegboards or just don’t have enough room on your wall to fix one, you can use a cutlery tray instead. Just get any cheap cutlery tray and fix it on your wall. Then screw in some hooks, and hang up all your long necklaces and earrings. You can also attach some screws on the bottom of the cabinet so that you can hang all your belts.
30. Lipstick Organizer
Lipsticks are an important part of every girl’s or boy’s life. They provide that extra oomph to your lips. But they are also very difficult to organize. You can get a cheap lipstick organizer off of Amazon and then proudly display all your lipsticks on your vanity. Now you can easily pick a lipstick that matches your mood without having to rummage around.
31. On-the-Door Racks
An on-the-door rack is honestly the best way to organize all the things you need just before you walk out of your bedroom, ready to conquer the world. You can store things such as wallets, bags, important files and folders, bottles, etc. in these racks. You can also store laundry and cleaning necessities in them.
32. Pillow Remote Holder
It’s honestly a task to keep track of all the remotes in your room. I have a remote for my TV, DVD player, air conditioner, and stereo system. I usually find them underneath my mattress or bed or in my cupboard.
A simple solution is to make a pillow that doubles as a remote holder. You can store all your remotes in one place and just flip the pillow if you want to conceal them. And you can customize them however you like.
33. Bracelet Holder
Bracelets can take up a lot of space in your drawers and the thin ones can easily get tangled with each other. But there is a very cute and easy way to turn your bracelets into room decor and keep them organized at the same time. All you have to do is to put them around a glass bottle. You can stack your bracelets on top of each other so that they don’t get tangled and are easily accessible.
34. Nail Polish In Spice Rack
If you’re a big fan of painting your nails like me but can’t find a cute way to display all your colors and keep the bottles upright, then I have the perfect hack for you. You can organize all your nail polishes in a spice rack and hang it on your wall. In this way, you not only empty some drawer space but you also get to see all your colors.
35. Storing Earrings in an Ice Cube Tray
It is a challenging task to find a space for all your earrings. An easy way to organize them is to put them in an ice cube tray. This way, they won’t be lying all over the place and you won’t have to waste your time searching for them. You can also store other things like thumbtacks, paper binders, etc. in this tray.
36. Pant Hangers For Linens
Sometimes we don’t have space for all our linens. They can occupy a lot of space in the room and can be a pain to fold and arrange. Well, you can always hang them on pant hangers. These pant hangers can also be used to hang up your craft clothes and much more.
37. File Your Small Purses
Those wire file holders that you see in offices can have a much more versatile use. You can use them to store your small purses and clutches. This way, they’ll be easily accessible and stored neatly. This method will also keep them in shape.
38. Shower Rings to the Rescue
Shower rings can really help you solve all the unnecessary clutter lying around your room. You can use them to hang all your scarves that would otherwise be strewn all over your room. Insert as many rings as you can through your hanger and then corral your scarves together. This way, your scarves will not get wrinkled and will be neatly organized.
39. Adjustable Shelf Dividers
Organizing your undergarments, socks, or anything really in your drawers can be a pain when you can’t find the perfect compartments to distribute your drawer space evenly. Instead of breaking your head over trying to customize some, you can buy adjustable shelf dividers from Amazon. The length of these dividers can be adjusted according to the size of your drawer.
40. Get A Storage Cart
If you are anything like me then you just can’t sit back and work in one place. Soon your whole room will be cluttered with pens, highlighters, and papers. There is an easy fix to this problem. Get a storage cart in which you can keep all your work and wherever you go, your work will follow in an organized manner.
41. Trade Big Bins For Smaller Ones
You can’t get a huge container, dump all your stuff in it, and call it organization. So if you really want to organize, substitute your bigger containers for smaller compact ones so that you can fit quite a few in a drawer. In this way, you will be able to do a much more thorough organization and every little item will have space.
