There are all sorts of stylish furniture and organizational tools that will keep things in order in addition to making your room a more chic space.

End Tables

Night stands are not for storage. Take out anything that you don’t need or use on a weekly basis and store it elsewhere. Alarm clocks, remotes, tissues, and maybe a book are more than enough to fulfill this space.

Clothes Rack

If you’ve got a congested closet or overstuffed drawers, move some of your wardrobe onto a clothing rack. Hang your favorite items on this statement piece that lends a chic element to the space. Use stylish velvet hangers both on the rack and in closet; their flat tines maximize space.

Move the Hamper

If your bedroom has its own bathroom, try this space as a new home for your hamper. Your room will look, and smell, cleaner.


Go thrifting or shop online for a trunk or ottoman that meets your style. Position it at the foot of your bed or in a bare corner to hold extra linens or miscellaneous items. In addition to giving a home to unsightly items, this piece will add a little character to the room and a place to take a seat on when you need a break.

Storage Bed

If your room suffers from storage deficiency, furniture with built-in compartments will help. Opt for a dual-purpose bed that provides you with a place to sleep as well as a place for belongings like bedding, clothes or shoes. If you love the bed you already have but lack built-in storage, purchase some rolling carts that can stand in as drawers.

Something as simple as acrylic or decorative trays will keep clutter contained and make the room appear more organized. Put one on your nightstand or on the dresser to catch jewelry, remotes, and other small items.


Storage Mirror

Everyone could use a full-length mirror, especially one that can be swung open to reveal storage shelves. Mirror cabinets instantly solve storage scarcity and can hold all sorts of things from perfumes to accessories to sentimental trinkets that you don’t want to part with. Bonus: these mirrors can act as a secret hiding place for valuables.

Purge Garments

It’s never too soon to let go of extra clothing. Go through all tops, bottoms, shoes, and accessories and set free the items you’ve been hoarding for far too long. Donate to those in need and stow away seasonal pieces in the attic, basement, or somewhere else out of the way until you need them again.
