The master bedroom is one of the most important rooms in your house. It is meant to be a sanctuary, a place where you can be at peace. If your master bedroom doesn’t deliver this feeling, then it may be time to take action. The first step is to ensure that it is clutter free.
Take a critical look around your room. Do you have too many knick-knacks, books, clothing piles or too many pictures on the wall?
Start with the surfaces first. Display only a few loved decorative items on top of dressers & book shelves. Donate books that you know you won’t read. Display pictures or artwork that you absolutely love to look at and that make you feel good.
Next, go through your closet and remove any clothing, shoes or accessories that you haven’t worn in a year. You can donate it to charity, consign/sell it or give it to someone you know that would wear it.
If you have a wardrobe that has several sizes, keep the clothes that fit now and let go of the rest. You don’t need the other sizes to make you feel unhappy. If your goal is to lose weight and you have smaller sizes and want to keep the clothes, then box them up and store them elsewhere. They will be ready for you when you need them.
It’s also a good idea to give your room a thorough cleaning as you de-clutter so that it is refreshed.
When you have finished de-cluttering, decide if your room might benefit from some re-decorating.
Does it need a new coat of paint, new bed linens, window coverings or accessories to spruce it up?
