Small Bedroom Organization Ideas
1. Be serious about decluttering
Nothing is worse than having hoarder tendencies when living in a small apartment. Be intentional about everything you own.
Start with your closet and work in sections. First drawers, then shelves with t-shirts and sweaters, the hanging stuff, so on.
Throw everything on the bed so you can actually see it.
Next, get closet organizers to make it easier to keep your closet tidy. My favorite simple closet organizers are baskets, shelf separators, and clothing hangers that look the same.

2. Minimize visible things
Overdecorating is one of the culprits in making a small bedroom feel disorganized. Keep your decor very minimal and group in things of 3 or 5.
Use a round tray, add a vase, faux stems, a candle, something personal.
Being super intentional about what you keep out on display makes your bedroom feel a ton bigger.

3. Utilize your under bed space
If you have free space under your bed, smart decision. Under-bed storage is one of the big live savers in small bedrooms.

4. Get a tall dresser
5. Use a nightstand with drawers
Each piece of furniture in a small bedroom needs to serve several purposes. A great way to maximize your space is by using a nightstand with drawers.
6. Don’t keep little things in sight
If you have a shelf where you keep many products and miscellaneous things, tidying those away in small organization drawers or boxes makes a huge difference.

7. Utilize the end of your bed
If you don’t have enough space for a full-fledged dresser, a small cube organizer at the end of your bed does wonders.
8. Be creative – jewelry storage hack
Jewelry by definition looks pretty. So why not making it part of your bedroom decor instead of storing it in drawers?
Displaying your necklaces also prevents them from getting tangled, which is a major win if you ask me.

10. Use the back of the door – but make it look tidy
Doors are great to create extra storage space. If you have a tiny bedroom with no storage space, these over-the-door organizers are life savers.
Yes, I agree, they don’t always look so pretty. If you can, hang this inside a closet door. If the back of the door is all you have, tidy your products in baskets to make them look organized.
11. Create extra storage with a ceiling shelf
“Ceiling shelf” might not be the correct wording, but the image below explains all.
If you have a small bedroom and a high enough ceiling, create extra storage with a shelf. Do keep it looking tidy, for example with baskets.
12. Use the corners for floating shelves
Corners in a small bedroom can be a great spot for floating shelves.
Get simple white corner shelves to match your walls, or go for a more rustic aesthetic.

13. Utilize your vertical space
Tall, skinny drawer storage is great for tiny bedrooms. Instead of getting a full-fledged nightstand, use one of these drawers instead.
You can also use this storage as your vanity table and store your make-up, skincare, jewelry, etc.
14. Use a wall mounted clothing rod
A wall-mounted clothing rod takes up less space than a standing clothing rack or coat holder.
You can also use this clothing rod to hang your bags, scarves, etc.
Because it’s in plain sight, make sure to pay attention to the aesthetic!! For example, color-coordinate your rack or keep only your current favorites.
15. Organize your hats in a cute way
Hats are so tricky to organize. I know, because my boyfriend has a ton and it takes up a ridiculous amount of space in our closet.
So if your hats are cute, why not display them instead?

16. Keep free wall space
In small bedrooms, it’s often a necessity to use wall space. But don’t overdo it. For a room to feel organized you need enough free space.
Without it, your room will feel cramped. That’s why you should tidy as much as you can away in drawers or storage.
