Your bedroom should be a haven of tranquility, an oasis of calm and rest in a crazy world. Somewhere to sleep, to reconnect with your partner and get away from it all.

In this blog we’re telling you to stop right there and put your bedroom needs first. We take a look at how to transform your room for chaos to calm with a few simple tricks.

Declutter

If your room has become the dumping ground for other people’s clothes, toys and shoes then it’s time to wrestle back some control. Set some rules that your room is no longer open season for lazy laundry attempts but instead a space that deserves a little more respect.

Take everything out that doesn’t have a home in your bedroom and throw away anything you no longer have need for. It’s a great excuse to get rid of clutter and make your bedroom a zone of minimal fuss.

Think Space Saving

How about considering one larger wardrobe that can be built into your wall space and leave you free to dispose of the extra furniture you no longer need.
