An effective Bedroom is a well planned out space with lots of room to store all your personal effect and other activities.

Most times when a bedroom is decorated or remodel, the room looks great, but after a short time it gets all cluttered and I have taken it upon myself do find out how to keep your bedroom free from unnecessary clutter.

These basic steps in creating an effective bedroom includes;

v  Firstly great planning and future expansion should be in view when organizing your arrangements

v  Enough Storage space like the wardrobe space, side drawers/cabinets, and bed head shelves should be sufficient enough for your clothing and other items. To maximize space the wardrobe should be very orderly and ease to see through. Under bed storage is another effective way to store bulky things like extra pillows, extra blankets, coats that are not being used .I recommend investing in a storage unit that has wheels (there are numerous types available and you can make one yourself) , this makes it easier to get in and out. Depending on the bed makeup, this may not be possible, and again your bedcover can conceal these storage units.

v  Use decorative boxes of varying sizes to store things in, like jewelry, scarves, magazines, hats (hat boxes), and hand bags. These can be stacked in a decorative layout in a corner.

v  Create more space for your excesses by using book cases, cardboard boxes, rattan boxes; other types of available boxes .You can decorate these boxes with fabric to suit your design theme.

v  Possibly have 3 laundry baskets with different use, one for your laundry purpose, the other two for charity and amendment, make sure it’s kept in a discreet place and it’s also in line with your design.  This will ensure all your dirty clothes, giveaway clothes and clothes for adjustment or amendment are out of the way and they don't pile up on the sofa or table you have but can never use.

v  Use shoe racks to maximize the usage of space, there are different types of shoe rack i suggest you pick one that suit your space, though I like the wooden shoe racks.

v  Adjust your pattern; Small patterns look best on the smaller things in the room-lampshades, pillow shams, bedside-table covers, and bed skirts. Larger patterns look great in broad swaths-bedspreads and voluminous window treatments. Adjusting the patterns in your bedroom can make a room seem less cluttered and can also bring a calming mood

v  Make sure there are no tight spot in the room. When arranging furniture, allow some empty space on each side of the bed for dressing as well as making the bed, cleaning and vacuuming. This will help you keep areas clean and prevent small areas with little 'breathing room' from becoming clutter-traps.

v  Few important things should be kept on the dresser or drawer to give you enough room to dust and to access them easily.

Those are a few easy tips to apply when creating an effective Bedroom to make sure it remain the same for months to come.
