Organizing Ideas for a Small Bedroom

Your bedroom should be your peaceful oasis, where you can just relax and feel at ease with the world, but that can’t happen if there is chaos everywhere you look – and a small bedroom makes it even harder to stay organized, so consider trying some of these small bedroom organizing ideas.

Small Bedroom Organizing Ideas

Underbed Storage: You can take advantage of space under your bed by sliding under-bed storage containers filled with garments, shoes, or anything you want to store in an organized manner out of sight.

Corner Shelves: To take advantage of wasted space in the corners of your small bedroom, you can hang storage shelves designed for use in corners, or place a triangular curio cabinet in the corner to hold small items.

Decorative Stacking Baskets: Stacking baskets and bins let you take advantage of dresser tops and closet shelves by neatly storing small items inside the stacked baskets or bins.

Drawer Organizers: While not only for small bedrooms, you can buy drawer organizer to keep your small clothing items, like socks and underwear neatly organized in your dresser, or you can make drawer organizers from things like cereal boxes.

Hanging Baskets: This won’t work if you aren’t able to hang things from your ceiling or walls, but if you can… rather than decorative things like planters from corners of your ceiling, you can hang baskets and then fill them with small items to keep them organized and neatly out of sight.

Cedar Lined Trunks: If you have room for a trunk in your tiny bedroom, you can fill it with linens or garments that are out of season, and then fold a blanket or lace a cushion on top of it, so it can serve double duty as a seat and a storage trunk.

Because each home is different, not all ideas will work in all homes, but you can mix and match these small bedroom organizing ideas to fit your available space.

Getting organized will almost always take some work (unless you hire someone to do it for you) but it’s worth it because being organized reduces chaos and stress and is better for you, overall.

Getting started may not be the hardest part of getting organized if you are cleaning up a lot of clutter, but without taking the first step, you already know you will never have a neat and organized life.

Start with a planner: Planners can be in your phone, computer, another handheld mobile device, or traditional paper planners. Choose the type of planner that best suits your personal taste. Then, schedule some time into each day to work on getting organized.

Pick a system for getting organized: Browse through the details of different plans or systems for organizing, such as my free ebook, the Three-Bin Organizing System or any plan that interests you. Choose the approach that best resonates with the way you like to work before you begin your organizing project.

Make some labels: Having a place where everything belongs is important for getting things organized, and labels make it easier for everyone else using the area to find things and to get things back where they belong.

  • I like to use a P-Touch label maker for my labels, but I have also seen beautiful labels made on a Dymo labeler, and even handwritten masking tape labels are effective.
  • The advantage of using labels instead of just writing on the surface of something is – it is easier to move labels if you decide to rehome an item.

Get help if you’re overwhelmed: Almost anyone can end up dealing with a disorganized mess, and it can make you feel stuck, isolated, and alone – but you don’t  have to keep dealing with it and you don’t have to tackle it alone.

If you can’t ask a friend or family member to help, you can hire professional organizers can come in with an impartial pair of eyes to help you find a way to keep the items you value most, get rid of the junk, and organize what you choose to keep so you don’t end up with a recurring problem.
