Your bedroom. A place to unwind and catch those much-needed ZZZs. Clutter stopping you from reaching your zen potential? Make your sleep spot feel calm and welcoming by following these four easy steps – inspired by organisational guru, Marie Kondo.
1. Get organised
First up, sort your belongings into categories: clothes, books, papers, komono (miscellaneous) and memories. We’re all about circular solutions here at MADE, so we recommend giving unwanted items a second life by donating them to charity (check out our giveaway platform Geev if you need to rehome any preloved furniture). Next, pop miscellaneous items into storage baskets and boxes. They come in a variety of styles, sizes, and materials so you can easily integrate them into your decor.
2. Go double-duty
When it comes to your furniture, look out for pieces that are multi-functional and space-saving – especially if your room’s on the small side. An ottoman bed like Bahra is a real dreamer – the cleverly disguised lift-up base offers loads of space to store off-season clothing, extra cushions and spare bed linen.
3. Find your style
Too many clothes can result in outfit decision fatigue, so organisation is key. Categorise things by season, and be honest with yourself about the things you no longer wear. That bright-pink shirt that’s not seen the light of day for four years? It might be time for a trip to the charity shop. Next, pick out a wardrobe that meets your needs. Malix and Caren are both made to order in Germany with a choice of frames and matte or mirrored finishes.
4. Sweet dreams
Making your bed in the morning sounds like a simple thing, but it makes a big difference. After all, there’s nothing worse than getting back into an unmade bed after a long day at work. And aside from keeping things looking tidy, it gives you a chance to show off your style. Into all things classic? You'll love these organic cotton sheets. Prefer something a bit bolder? Try a bright throw to add a shot of colour.
