While it may not be spring yet, it’s never a bad time to get some spring cleaning done — and what better place to start than your bedroom? Whether you’re looking to do a deep cleaning or just tidy up a bit, there are many ways you can go about re-organizing your bedroom so that it’s the space you really want it to be.

1. Make the bed.

Start simple. While it may seem that making the bed isn’t that big of a deal, it can be pretty significant in changing the overall appearance of your room. Your bed, after all, is most likely one of the most prominent objects in your room that people’s eyes are immediately drawn to. What’s more, seeing your bed all nicely made when you first enter your room will make it seem that much more inviting. Draw up the covers nice and tight, fluff the pillows, and you’re good to go!

2. Clean underneath your bed.

If you’re the type of person to stash things under your bed when there’s nowhere else to put them, then it’s time to tackle that area. Pull everything out and figure out where each item should go. That crumpled up math homework from last semester? Toss it in the trash. Those earphones that you thought you lost a month ago? Make sure you put them in a special place so you know exactly where they are for next time.

Even if it takes a while to dust things off and sort everything out, the process will be worth it if you can manage to completely clear the space underneath your bed.

3. Dive into your closet.

If you’re like most people, your closet is probably also another space that needs to be conquered. Pick up any clothes that are lying around on the floor of the closet and decide whether they should be hung up or folded and put away in some dresser drawers.

If you want to take things to the next level of organization, you might even consider color coding the clothes in your closet or arranging them by type or style of clothing. Doing so can make choosing an outfit a little more efficient when you know where everything is.

Alternatively, if you have enough space in your closet, you may want to invest in some hanging organizers (ones that come with cubbies and extra storage space), which can not only neatly compartmentalize your things but also give your closet a new aesthetic.

(Another tip to maintain this level of organization: after you finish wearing an article of clothing, don’t just toss it onto the ground. Instead, take an extra few seconds to put it back on a hanger in your closet or in a drawer somewhere to save yourself time and effort later on!)

4. Get rid of unwanted and unneeded things.

This is a big one. Sometimes it can be difficult to get rid of things in your room that have just been lying around forever, but it has to be done eventually.

To that end, set aside at least a few hours in your day (depending on how much clutter there is in your room) and figure out what you can keep and what you can toss. You may be surprised by how many things you discover you don’t need anymore, such as clothes you haven’t worn in years, shoes that no longer fit, pens that don’t work anymore, and just a number of other items that you haven’t seen in a while and quite frankly never noticed or cared that they were missing. Whatever you choose to do with them — whether to donate them, sell them, or simply throw them out — will ultimately allow you to declutter your space effectively.

5. Take advantage of bedside storage.

A bedside table can be a lot more valuable than you think. Not only can you put things on top of it — like an alarm clock, a box of tissues, etc. — but you can also store things inside its drawers, depending on what kind of table it is.

Another way to take advantage of bedside space is to use innovative storage containers, like this caddy that hangs off the side of the bed. You can find something that’s slim and sleek enough to not take up much space next to your bed, but one that also can fit a lot of different things.

6. Add hooks to the doors and walls.

One way to keep your floors free of clutter is to put up hooks on your doors and walls. Invest in some Command hooks and use them to hang things such as your towel, purses and bags, jackets, and anything else you can think of.

Organizing your bedroom doesn’t have to be a hassle. Take the time and effort to make your room the best it can be, and you won’t regret it.
