Our Bedroom Makeover
Theres nothing better than going to sleep in a bedroom that is a complete relaxation heaven. We’re in the process of making over our master bedroom at the moment and one of the things I absolutely LOVE about our new space, is how neat and clutter free it is.
For the first time in my life, shoes and clothes are no longer strewn along the floor. Tangled, muddled wires don’t greet me when I open drawers to find a charger or my hair dryer or my curling tongs. And when I want to choose an outfit for the day, I can see every single piece of clothing I own, lined up vertically and ready for the taking in my new neatly organised drawers.
As a busy mum, who needs to be awake and prepared for a teasy tantruming toddler everyday, getting a good nights sleep is so important.
So, when Bed Guru, a bed retailer who just happen to be sleep specialists, recently got in touch and asked us to work with them (and in return offered to give our readers the chance to win a double or king size ottoman bed …you’re welcome! 😀 ), we jumped at the chance.
We love Bed Guru because they understand that no two people share the same sleeping requirements. They see it as an obligation to ensure that everybody gets a great night’s sleep because;
‘A great night’s sleep means a happier, healthier and more focussed you.’
5 Clever Ways To Organise Your Bedroom
One of the best ways we’ve been able to create a serene, beautiful bedroom is by getting clever with organisation. Having oodles of cupboards and drawer space is not always an option. But, being smart with the available space and having a place for everything is. We have come up with some really creative storage options in our master bedroom and Bed Guru has asked us to share some of our favourites with you:
1. Drawer Organisers/Dividers –
Have you invested in drawer organisers yet? This draw hack is so simple yet so effective. Buying little drawer dividers can completely change how you use your drawer space and can really help you to organise belongings, especially small items that always seem to end up in a mess.
You can use them to sort anything from your jewellery, to your belts, to your pants and your bras.
2. Ottoman bed –
We have fallen completely in love with Bed Guru’s Ottoman beds and plan on investing in one soon. Ottoman beds are such genius. Not only do they look so stylish, but one simple lift of the mattress will reveal a generous amount of under bed storage.
This idea is so perfect, especially for smaller rooms where there isn’t much space for bulky furniture or where the space between the bed and wall is too narrow for under bed drawers. Ottoman beds offer you practical and hidden storage solutions without sacrificing on style. You can enter to win your very own customisable double or king size Ottoman divan base from Bed Guru here!
3. Folding Vertically –
I used to always fold clothes and stack them on top of each other in my drawers. But, to find anything, you’d have to rummage through the pile in order to see what you were looking for. 90% of the time, the piles just became a mess. Lately I’ve been folding everything and stacking it vertically.
I’ve been lining up my clothes in rows, from the front of the drawer to the back of the drawer. This method of folding is so clever. It means I can see everything I have in the drawer without having to rummage through to the bottom of a pile. It keeps everything neat, organised and easy to grab.
4. Display Things Creatively –
Organising doesn’t necessarily mean that everything needs to be tidied away. I really love the idea of displaying things creatively.
Soon we’ll be getting some cute little wall hooks so I can display my jewellery and simple things like these jars, or trinket boxes, are a great way to display toiletries, without having to hide them away in drawers.
5. Built in wardrobe –
A built in wardrobe might not be in everyones budget. But, if you do have the option to build one, then you can really get to work in creating a space that is tailored perfectly to your needs.
Even though our built in wardrobe is so simple, it’s really effective and has contributed massively to our clutter free bedroom.
Inside I made sure to put a large rail, some built in shoe racks that cleverly use the corners, and some extra drawer space.
A Dreamy Bedroom
It’s so nice coming home to a clutter free dreamy bedroom. Its amazing how much difference an organised bedroom makes to your mind frame and your quality of sleep. We do still have a little way to go till our bedroom is finished. I really want to paint the walls white and invest in some wall hangings.
But the organisation (minus buying the bed) is all completely done and the new ways of arranging our bedroom space have completely changed the way we live. No more rummaging around for things, losing things or pulling everything out to find something.
