Smart Ways To Declutter Your Bedroom

The bedroom is where we sleep and relax after a long day. When you walk in, you should feel calm and happy. But what if, instead, you’re feeling overwhelmed with clutter?

Creating a space that’s not only functional but a reflection of your taste is achievable in a few easy steps. Soon you’ll be loving your newly refreshed bedroom.

From decluttering tips to storage ideas, our guide will have you create an oasis out of your bedroom in no time. Get ready to say goodbye to cluttered chaos and hello to a luxurious and organised space.

Let’s dive in.

Tips for organising your bedroom

Don’t know where to start with decluttering your bedroom? Here are some top tips for making the most of your organising process so you can enjoy a fabulously fresh and clear space.

Sort into categories

If you’ve got a whole room of stuff to organise, having separate categories for things like clothes, skincare and trinkets make the decluttering process much easier. This way you can easily see everything you own and make decisions a lot faster.

Alternatively, you can split things into ‘keep’, ‘maybe’ and ‘throw out’ piles. From there you can decide whether to sell or donate any items you no longer need. These two methods will help to avoid that mid-declutter paralysis!

Identify unused space

Are you sure your bedroom is working as hard as it can be for housing your stuff? Perhaps a closet needs reconfiguring to add in more hanging space, or an unused wall could house some shelves.

Do a quick audit of the space and see if there are any natural storage solutions you’re potentially missing out on. From there, you can plan ahead to get any supplies you need for adding in your chic new storage solutions.

Keep surfaces clear

It’s amazing how much stuff can accumulate on dressers, bedside tables and sometimes, the floor! By keeping these surfaces clear with only thoughtfully chosen decor, you’ll make your space feel bigger and calmer at the same time.

Designating a place for everything and making the most of the storage you have will go a long way in keeping surfaces clear once you’ve decluttered your bedroom.

Evaluate often

The best way to declutter is to do it little and often. Even with new storage, it can quickly fill up and become unmanageable again if you buy more things to fill it with.

Being mindful of what you’re bringing into your space is a great way to keep clutter at bay (and keep on top of your spending, too). Setting aside some time every six months or so to see if anything in your bedroom needs throwing up will keep your space clear and clutter-free.

Bedroom storage ideas

So, you’ve finished sorting out your clutter - but there are a lot of things left out in the bedroom still that need a proper home.

There are a lot of different and cute storage options for your space that will elevate your home and hide away your things. Here are a few of our favourites.


If you have many small items on a surface, like skincare products on a dressing table, then trays are an excellent option for styling odd objects together. These trays make it simple to see what you have while gathering everything together into a chic display.

If you have items in a similar theme, like bracelets and earrings, then you can opt for a chic multi-tier tray organiser that keeps everything looking put together while giving you plenty of storage. Our Hazel two-tiered organiser would look perfect in any chic bedroom.


These versatile storage options are wonderful for housing blankets, cushions and other bulky items you want within easy reach while still looking stylish and put-together. You can choose ones with lids for under-bed storage or open baskets you keep out in the bedroom.

Baskets come in a variety of different sizes, styles and materials so you can perfectly match your space while adding some texture and dimension to the room. We love wicker and wire baskets for a touch of sophistication in any bedroom.


These are brilliant storage additions to a bedroom as they add seating at the same time. You can use your ottoman for storing spare bedding or seasonal clothes, as a resting area for dressing and as a chic piece of decor.

For an effortless look, have your ottoman match your bedframe - or go bold with an accent colour. Our range of tufted and panelled ottomans comes in a range of neutral colours to blend seamlessly into your space.


Clear canisters are a great way to display things like cotton wool pads, hairpins and other essentials in easy-to-access pots. These give those small, but often used items a home while still looking organised and chic in your bedroom.

We’re big fans of grouping together different-sized clear canisters to create a layered effect while displaying some of your most used and loved items. Our Gianna canister has a beautiful golden trim that would elevate any dressing table.

Trinket pots

These little pots are similar to canisters, but work well for the small items you want to hide away while the trinket pot itself brings the decor to the space. Valuable jewellery, sentimental trinkets or beauty items would all work well to store in trinket pots.

If you’re looking for multiple trinket pots, opt for similar colours to make the grouping look cohesive. For a glamorous feel, go for gold, marble or matte black accents to bring chic to the space while blending in with any decor you choose.
