Declutter Your Bedroom for a Fresh Start

A cluttered bedroom can make it hard to relax and sleep well. Do yourself a favor and declutter your personal space. Make a list of everything you own and get rid of anything you don’t use or need regularly. Pack up out of season clothing, old books or magazines you’ve already read, and knickknacks collecting dust. Donate or throw away broken or worn out items.

  • Get rid of unused items in your bedroom like old clothes, books and decor. Donate or throw away broken furniture and knick knacks collecting dust.
  • Remove excess furniture that makes your room feel cramped.
  • Store or remove bulky items under your bed and from surfaces to open up floor space.
  • Go through your closet and drawers, get rid of ill- fitting or damaged clothes. Organize the clothes you keep with matching hangers.
  • Use bins, dividers and trays to organize and store items.

Update Your Bedding for an Instant Style Boost

A stylish bed is the centerpiece of any bedroom. Update your bedding for an instant style boost and cozy comfort.

Invest in High Quality Bedding

High thread count sheets (at least 600), a plush comforter, and a stylish duvet cover can transform your queen bed into a luxurious sleep haven. Look for natural, breathable fabrics like Egyptian or Pima cotton in solid colors or simple patterns. For extra comfort, add a padded mattress topper.

Update Your Pillows

Throw out lumpy, misshapen pillows and replace them with new supportive pillows. For side sleepers, firm pillows that keep the spine aligned are best. Back sleepers need medium support. Stomach sleepers need very soft, almost flat pillows.

Add Stylish Accents

Accessorize your bed with stylish accents like an upholstered headboard, plush rug, floor cushions, string lights, canopy, or wall art. For a bohemian vibe, drape patterned fabric or a stylish throw blanket over the footboard.

Incorporate Greenery With Indoor Plants

Indoor plants are an easy way to bring life and greenery into your bedroom. Here are some tips to incorporate plants into your space:

Choose low-light tolerant plants

Unless you have lots of windows, your bedroom probably doesn’t get much natural light. Select plants that can thrive in low or indirect light, such as:

  • Snake plants (also called mother-in-law’s tongue)
  • Chinese evergreen
  • Peace lilies
  • Pothos (also known as devil’s ivy)

These plants do well with minimal sunlight and add lush foliage to your room.

Display Artwork to Showcase Your Personality


Displaying artwork in your bedroom is a great way to showcase your personality and style. Carefully curated art can transform an ordinary space into an inspiring retreat.

Include a Gallery Wall

A gallery wall with a collection of art, photos, mirrors and decorative objects creates a stylish focal point. Start with a large anchor piece as the center, then arrange the remaining pieces around it.

Hang Framed Prints

Framed prints, especially in groups of two or three, make an artistic statement. For a boho vibe, choose nature-themed prints like leaves, feathers or star charts. Black and white cityscape or architectural prints are ideal for an urban feel.

Add Multipurpose and Functional Bedroom Furniture

Adding multipurpose furniture is one of the easiest ways to transform your bedroom. Opt for pieces that serve more than one function so you can maximize space.

Storage Ottomans

Ottomans with hidden storage compartments are ideal for small bedrooms. Use them as extra seating when needed but store linens, blankets, books or clutter inside when not in use. Look for ottomans that lift up to reveal a spacious storage area.

Bunk Beds

Bunk beds are a practical choice for small bedrooms, especially kid’s rooms. They make the most of vertical space by stacking two beds atop each other.

Bunk beds come in different configurations:

  • Twin over twin: The most basic bunk bed style with two twin sized mattresses stacked. This is ideal for siblings or small children.
  • Twin over full: A twin sized top bunk stacked over a full or double sized bottom bunk. This provides more space on the bottom for an adult or older child.
  • Loft beds: A platform bed with a twin mattress that sits higher up, often with storage drawers or shelves underneath. Loft beds are a good choice for limited floor space.


Choose a dresser with multiple drawers to store clothing, linens and other items. A dresser with a mirror attached also serves as a vanity table for getting ready. Look for a dresser with legs for easy cleaning underneath or a dresser that you can mount to the wall to save floor space.


A desk provides a place to work, study or craft in your bedroom. But choose a desk with storage components like drawers, cabinets or a hutch so you can also use it to organize supplies, paperwork and electronics when not in use. A fold-down or Murphy desk that folds up onto the wall is ideal for small spaces.
