Hacking Your Bedroom

Posted on October 15, 2015 by Andrew

Being an adult can shown by many different things. Having a room filled with piles of dirty laundry and cluttered with random stuff that belongs in a hoarder’s collection just isn’t one of them. Most people agree that keeping all your belongings stacked in neat alphabetized rows or colour-coded boxes stacked according to function can be a mite unsettling, but that’s not what we’re aiming to achieve. We’re not looking to make your life revolve around folding, packing, and labelling all your belongings into neat little packages. Everyone’s a slob at one point in their lives. But there’s a line between being chill and laidback about the state of your house and actively promoting an atmosphere of rampant chaos that is better suited to barbarian hordes in the Dark Ages. We’re here to share some advice on wardrobe storage solutions that will make your daily routine that much easier to navigate. So, without further ado, here are our top three picks for organizing your bedroom.

Stack ‘Em Up The Right Way With Dresser Organizers

There are two types of people: the ones who’ve tried stuffing all their things willy-nilly into a single drawer and liars. Learning how and what to fold and stack into a drawer is only half the battle won. If you want to be able to utilize the maximum space that you have access to, buying (or making your very own) a few organizers would do wonders to the appearance and accessibility of your drawers. Now, you won’t have to worry about them vomiting out their contents every time you pull one open!

Stack your clothed vertically for easier access.

Double Down By Replacing Your Nightstand With A Bedside Dresser

There are often times that we don’t want to see room for improvement because we’re already deeply entrenched in our respective comfort zones. Most men and not a small amount of the fairer sex fall victim to this falsified sense of content. The “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” philosophy has been touted so long and so often that it is usually confused with truth. Case in point: your choice of furniture. You might have the fanciest nightstand this side of Texas or you might have gotten it from the nearest IKEA. Regardless, the refusal to change is still there and very much hindering your path to a clutter-free bedroom. Try swapping out a single-use nightstand for a small dresser with a lot more storage potential. If you want to up the ante, pick a dresser with a secondary function like the picture we’ve linked below.

Ghost Through Book Clutter With Floating Shelves

Ah, books. The day that you start resenting the presence of books will be the start of mankind’s slow descent to anarchy. Sure, you can keep a veritable library of paperbacks in a single Kindle tablet, but there is something to be said about the authenticity of hefting a freshly printed novel and breathing in the scent of freshly opened paper and ink. Sadly, for book aficionados all over the world, storage will definitely become an issue at one point in their collecting lives. What’s more, stacks of books that are stored carelessly and without the proper maintenance disintegrate that much faster. Since proper shelves might be a bit too much for your current budget, try floating shelves. An added bonus: you can go crazy with how the shelves will look when armed with your legendary book selection!

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It

According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings
