A decluttered bedroom is a peaceful bedroom. If your bedroom is cluttered, it can be difficult to relax and get a good night’s sleep. Not to mention, a cluttered bedroom can make getting dressed in the morning a nightmare. Follow these 10 simple steps to declutter your bedroom and transform it into a serene oasis.

1. Start with a clean slate. Before you start decluttering, give your bedroom a thorough cleaning. This includes dusting, vacuuming, and doing any laundry that might be lingering around. A clean room will help you feel less overwhelmed as you start decluttering.

2. Donate or discard anything that you don’t use or need. Get rid of clothes that don’t fit, shoes that you never wear, and anything else that is taking up space in your room but that you don’t need or use. If you’re not sure whether or not to keep something, ask yourself when was the last time you used it. If you can’t remember, chances are you don’t need it. 

3. Put away anything that doesn’t belong in your bedroom. This includes items such as laundry baskets, suitcases that are still unpacked from your last trip, and any other miscellaneous items that have made their way into your bedroom but don’t belong there. 

4. Make your bed every day. A made bed instantly makes a room look neater and more put together. It only takes a minute or two to make your bed each morning, so there’s no excuse for leaving it unmade. 

5. Keep surfaces clear. Surfaces such as dressers, nightstands, and desks tend to collect clutter quickly. To prevent this from happening, make it a habit to clear off any surfaces as soon as they start to get cluttered. Wipe down surfaces with a damp cloth once a week to remove dust and reclaim lost space. 

6. Invest in storage solutions. If you find that you don’t have enough storage space in your room, invest in some additional storage solutions such as under-the-bed storage containers or bins that can be stored in closets or underneath furniture.

7. Get rid of anything that brings back negative memories. If certain items in your room remind you of negative experiences from your past, get rid of them so they don’t bring down the energy of your entire space.

8. Don’t be afraid to experiment with color. A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for transforming the look and feel of a room. If painting sounds like too much work, consider hanging some new artwork or changing out the bedding to give the space an instant facelift. 

9. Make sure there’s enough light. A well-lit room feels more open and inviting than a dark and dreary one. If natural light is lacking in your room, consider investing in some new lamps or light fixtures. 

10. Add some greenery. Plants not only add life to a room but they also purify the air. Choose low-maintenance plants such as succulents or cacti if you don’t have a green thumb. Or opt for fake plants if real ones are not your thing. 


A decluttered bedroom is essential for creating a peaceful oasis where you can relax and get a good night’s sleep. Follow these 10 simple steps to clear out the clutter and transform your bedroom into the tranquil retreat you deserve!
