To make your bedroom organized without seeming boring, you could opt for the minimalist aesthetic with small accents. It is important to keep your room organized, seeing as messy living environments can lead to stress, anxiety, or even depression .
Decluttering your room could consist of getting rid of clothes you no longer wear, storing most objects inside cabinets and drawers, and asking yourself which items no longer serve a purpose for your daily life and letting them go. Decluttering can make you feel like your room is brand new, while spending no money at all.
Once you’ve decluttered your space, consider keeping your room basics to neutral colours. For instance, keep your drawers, curtains, and bedsheets in neutral colours. After the basics are established, you can add a pop of colour through small accent details around your space. Details in accent colours can include the following:
- Accent rug – the rug’s colour is enough to bring excitement into the room but not enough to cause a distraction.
- Accent lamp – bring light into your room with a pop of colour.
- Bright-coloured artwork – as previously mentioned, express yourself through art and make your work stand out on your walls.
By keeping your space neutral with a pop of colour, you may be able to let your mind rest while being inspired at the same time.

A great way to amp up your room is to change its layout. You might be bored with the way your room looks, but with a change of place, your furniture will feel brand new. You can rearrange your furniture and determine which pieces you don’t need anymore, making your room feel more open. You could try moving your bed from the corner of the room to the centre, switching dresser placements, and seeing which way your furniture looks best with your newly-made artwork.
Decluttering your room before moving your furniture will make the process easier. Your drawers will be lighter to move and you can truly see which pieces of furniture hold no use anymore.
Mirrors are a great way to enhance your room. They reflect the natural light, brightening your room throughout the day. Additionally, mirrors can trick the eye into seeing more space, making your room look bigger.
A great way to find affordable mirrors is to look for them at your nearest thrift store or vintage store. This way, you can find a mirror at a reasonable price, while fixing up minimal details yourself.
The best source of light for your room is natural light. However, if windows are oddly placed, it may be difficult to allow for the light to liven up your room. But don't fret! There are simple, affordable ways to bring light into your space.
Adding suspending bulbs to bring light inside is a stylish alternative. They are small yet chic, not causing distraction from the accent pieces around your room. Similarly, fairy lights have become a popular piece to add to the bedroom. They are small and delicate, but when arranged together, can bring a light and whimsical feeling to your room. And the best part, they are very affordable and easily available.
