How to Create Functional and Clutter-Free Spaces

The bedroom is a part of the home that serves a multitude of purposes rather than just being a place to go to bed and get some sleep. Many people use their bedroom for relaxation, as a chill out space where they can read a book or listen to some music. Others may use it just to get dressed and ready to go out.

With this in mind, it is easy to see why many people end up with bedrooms that are cluttered and quite messy, which is definitely not conducive to relaxation. A cluttered room can also make getting dressed and ready to go out quite difficult – you may even reach a point where you struggle to find the items you need. This is why you need to look at ways to clear the clutter and make the room more functional.

Five tips to help you to create a larger, more practical space

If you want to make the most of your bedroom space, transforming it into an area that is functional and free of clutter, there are a number of tips that can help you to do this.

Use your spare room as a dressing room: If you have a spare room that you do not really use for anything, consider transforming it into a dressing room. You can then use it for your wardrobe, dressing table, chests of drawers and other items of furniture that are cluttering up your main bedroom.

Wall mount whatever you can: Wall mounting is all the rage these days, and for good reason: it can really help when it comes to space-saving. Rather than cluttering up the tops of tables and chests of drawers, look at wall mounting your TV and putting up shelving.

Get professionals to take a look: If design is not your strong point, it is well worth getting professionals to take a look at your room to see what sorts of changes can be made in order to clear space and increase functionality.

Invest in storage: Spend some money on efficient and effective storage for your bedroom – preferably the type you can hide away. For example, you could get under-bed storage facilities, or if you are planning on buying a new bed, you could opt for a bed with storage incorporated. This will enable you to clear a lot of clutter and keep your stored items out of sight.

Get rid of unwanted items: It may sound obvious, but a huge number of people simply hang on to items they no longer need or use. This creates clutter in the bedroom and makes the space far less functional. So, take the plunge and get rid of the unwanted items and furniture.

With these few tips, you can help to make your bedroom a far more relaxing place to be, as well as a more practical one.
