Is your bedroom this tidy?
If you don’t have proper storage, it never will be. Here are eight supremely satisfying ways to get organised
Storage isn’t glamorous. It is essential
You might not follow the Gospel of Marie Kondo, but trust us: there’s a corner of your home that could do with organising.
Maybe your rented bathroom doesn’t have any cupboards. Or your underwear drawer is so messy you go into meltdown every time you try to find a pair of tights. Or you treat the space under your bed like Monica’s cupboard in Friends: somewhere you shove everything that doesn’t have its own place, then try your hardest not to think about.
Whatever your own problem area, there are ways to tackle it. Here’s where to begin…
For your bathroom
It’s not the most exciting way to spend a Saturday, but there’s something intensely satisfying about seeing all your lotions and potions neatly arranged, rather than scattered chaotically around your sink. These woven seagrass baskets will contain clutter and make everything feel chic, however much space you’ve got to play with. From £11.99, Zara Home
For under your bed
Hands up who used to be scared of monsters under the bed? As an adult, you may still be freaked out by what lies beneath – except these days, you’re probably more concerned by all the junk that’s lurking down there. Invest in a couple of drawers: these flexible cases are lightweight enough to go with you if you move house. £6, Ikea
If your pre-travel routine consists of throwing a bunch of clothes into a suitcase and hoping for the best, IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY. Packing cubes save valuable space and help you find everything quickly – and can be used as bottom-of-the-wardrobe storage when at home. Multitasking marvels. £45 for 6, Antler
For your drawers
When you open your underwear drawer, what do you see? A tangle of cotton, silk and lace? Stray socks with no pair in sight? Then it’s time to get acquainted with a drawer tidy. This one has nifty dividers so you can see where everything is, even when bleary-eyed – no chance of anything getting buried at the back again. £10, John Lewis
For your make-up
Let’s face it – we’ve all got too much make-up, and most of it is probably scattered indiscriminately around your bedroom/bathroom/bag. To fully appreciate your hoard, condense everything into a make-up organiser. This sleek gold-framed unit lets you see exactly what’s inside: compartmentalised perfection. £34.99, Beautify
