Your room should be your safe haven and when everything is tidy, you can enjoy your space and relax. This article will help you get ideas for organizing your room, especially your clothes. Specifics may vary from person to person; however, the following information includes helpful and important guidelines from which everyone can benefit.
Most people have quite a bit of clothing (not to mention shoes and accessories), you’ll need a dressing area, as well as a way to organize your closet and dresser.
The easiest way to set up your own personal dressing area is to position your dresser by your closet! A must-have for every bedroom is a mirror, hang it over your dresser or lean it up against a wall. Having a mirror in your room lessens your morning time crunch by letting you accomplish many tasks at once, such as styling your hair, applying makeup and accessorizing.
Try to make the most out of all the drawer space in your dresser which means neatly folding clothing and using dividers or small baskets to keep items (like socks) in their own area. Many space-savvy teens store makeup and hair accessories in their dresser. Store these items in trays, which will keep these small pieces from getting lost.
Bulky items, like jeans or sweatshirts, take up a lot of space, if you can, store them in the closet or under your bed. This will leave plenty of room for shirts, pants, underwear and other essentials.
Stackable shelving is great way to use the empty space at the bottom of the closet and is perfect for storing sweaters, jeans or even books. Another great idea for organizing your room is an over-the-door shoe organizer. This inexpensive option is a great way to clear up floor space plus, you can store accessories or hairbrushes in unused pockets!
If you don’t have a closet door (or don’t want to use an over-the-door organizer), shoe shelves are a great solution. These free-standing shelves easily store and organize virtually any type of shoe.
If you don’t have enough closet space, try raising your bed (with the help of your parents and some sturdy supports). You’ll hardly notice your bed being six inches to a foot higher, but you’ll immediately have a place for out-of-season clothes or even a rolling cabinet.
Organizing Your Room: Personal Touches. The best part of your bedroom is that it’s yours. This is your space, and the way you want to decorate it should be uniquely your own.

– Framed photos of your and your friends
– Colorful tapestries
– Different colors of paint (try painting the walls one shade and the trim another)
– Pictures from magazines
