Bedroom

Your bedroom is meant for rest, so it should be a peaceful, zen-like retreat—but because it’s the one space that visitors don’t typically see, it’s easy to neglect. If yours has turned into a dumping ground (clothing piles on the corner chair, odds and ends cluttering up your night table), find the easy fixes in Real Simple’s roundup of the best bedroom organization ideas. From easy closet updates (sliding doors, extra shelving, corner shoe cubbies) to fresh solutions for an overstuffed dresser, we’ve got loads of genius ways to maximize your bedroom space. Want a room that looks more “finished?” Check out our pros’ design-by-the-numbers tricks, including the ideal heights for nightstands and headboards, how much wall space to fill out with art, the best bench to place at the end of a bed, and more. We have plenty of pointers for kids’ rooms too—from clever closet setups and organizing hacks to a step-by-step decluttering plan.
