We all know ‘the chair’. It’s where we put our clothes that are too dirty for the closet but too clean for the laundry hamper. Sometimes the pile gets so high that we no longer reuse the ones on ‘the chair’ and they eventually end up in the laundry. A cluttered bedroom makes a cluttered mind as well. Focusing on tasks is difficult if we see so much mess in our surroundings. So, once and for all, let’s get rid of ‘the chair’ and start cleaning up our bedroom.
Reserve a space in your wardrobe
Having a small bedroom and closet is no excuse to keep it cluttered; you should keep it organised all the more. If you have a big closet, you can reserve space on one side for the used clothes that are too clean for the laundry. They can be jackets, pants, even shirts. Hang them like you would your fresh clothes, so you get more encouraged to reuse them before tossing into the laundry.
Get a new wardrobe
Does your current closet no longer hold everything you own? Maybe it’s time to think of having a fitted bedroom. Manchester bedroom fabricators can fit a custom wardrobe in your room so that everything will fit. You have a say in how many shelves and drawers to put, how high the rails should be to fit your long dresses, etc. They will cater to all your design ideas. You can also choose pre-designed ones if you don’t want the hassle of designing a closet from scratch. Make sure to have one corner for worn clothes that you still plan on wearing before washing.
Wear and wash
If you don’t want your bedroom chair to be covered with clothes, you can consider a wear-and-wash technique where you use one item and toss it in the laundry when you get home. This move will give more laundry to wash each week, but at least the clothes don’t pile up and still end up in the laundry after a month or so. For jackets that you only use as a layering piece, you can put them in a closet by your front door, so you can just grab them on your way out.
Hang up hooks
If you can’t avoid ‘the chair’ altogether, one alternative is to install hooks behind your door where you can hang your clothes for later use. Putting clothes on hooks is better than to see them touching the floor, hanging off the chair.
Keeping your bedroom clean and organised – especially your closet – is an excellent way to clear your mind when you need to focus on tasks like work. The secret to keeping your bedroom and wardrobe looking good is to declutter now and again. Do not wait for months to clean up, as you will have more to do. A few times a month is the best way to maintain the neat look of your bedroom. Keep in mind that the chair is not where you should put your worn clothes. It is where you sit to relax and work.
