Limit the furniture in your bedroom
For your bedroom to have a good flow it needs to have ample open space. Cramming too much furniture into small quarters leads creates stress within a room.
A good rule of thumb is to never impede natural movement with furniture. This means you should not need to turn sideways to move within a room or around furniture.
The functionality of your furniture should also not be limited by close proximity. You should always be able to to open drawers without bumping into your bed frame.
Create an equal flow
This is a new age tip that I swear by. If you want your relationship to be an equal partnership, start with this secret to a minimalist master bedroom.
To facilitate healthy and balanced relationships balance furniture within the room.
Don’t place your bed in the corner. Or constrict movement on one side of the room. Unbalanced furniture creates lessor and better spaces. Resentment can build in a relationship when unbalanced spaces become designated as his or her sides.
Reserve a night stand drawer for items that are usually on top
Have you ever seen a minimalist home tour and thought “it looks like no one lives there?” Well here’s a secret – put your stuff inside your stuff! Flat surfaces are the first to get cluttered, so save a drawer for everything that usually ends up on top.
When it comes to your night stand there should never be anything on top of your nightstand except for a lamp, a glass of water, and your phone. Leave all the kinkiness in the drawers.
Reserve a dresser drawer for disorganized clothing
Let’s see if this story resonates with you …
It’s a busy workday morning and you’re trying to find something to wear. You try on a blouse but it doesn’t work with your skirt so you try on another. Then you decide it’s your skirt that’s not working. You cycle through a few more possible outfits like this until you settle on something to wear.
As you head out the door you leave several clean pieces of clothing and hangers piled on top of your bed. When you come home you prepare food in the kitchen and land on your couch before it’s time to head to bed. Then you head into the bedroom and see the pile of clothing on the bed.
Does this sound familiar? This situation created perpetual bedroom messiness for me.
Then I finally had an epiphany! Clear out a drawer to store clean but not folded/hung clothing.
This makes it super easy to keep your bedroom clean. Any clothes on the floor are dirty and go in the hamper. Any clothes in the drawer are to be folded or hung.
Consider other locations for your desk
A bedroom/office combo just isn’t sexy. Desks are magnets for clutter. They’re practically breeding grounds for multiplying papers. Not to mention the electronics on top and wires galore. Electronics can not only affect your and your partners sleep, but they can also pose privacy risks.
If you want to feel relaxed in your bedroom, then check your work at the door. If you don’t have a separate office space in your home, then you need to pick your desk very carefully.
I recommend something with storage that is symmetrical, like this one. Storage keeps clutter off the top. A symmetrical aesthetic (aka no filling cabinet on one side) makes a desk look more like a console table.
