24 Bedroom Organizers That Won't Interfere with Your Dècor
A place where we spend a good part of our days and nights, the bedroom is a room where we go to rest and relax. But that can be hard to do if your clothes are strewn all over and your jewelry is tangled. Not to worry—we're helping you restore order while maintaining a beautiful space with our easy bedroom organizing solutions.
Finding a home for your shoes is a common dilemma. Some of your heels are works of art, so why not display them as such? Line the walls of a walk-in closet or a dressing area with picture-rail molding to make a tidy yet visually appealing display. Simply line your most gorgeous pairs up and hang them by their heels. Place your other footwear in shoe bags you've made yourself, or in a chest that doubles as a seat—either option gives you and your shoes more space.
Organizing your jewelry can be an overwhelming task in and of itself. That's why we're sharing some of our most effective ways to ensure your precious gems remain untangled and in their allotted space. A unique option is to place your baubles in an art palette. Give earrings, rings, and necklaces a home in each divot for a snug place to call their own. Add understated wall hooks to your room for some simple storage. Not only does it look pretty atop your wall, but you can also hang your favorite accessories from the hooks.
From unique closets to ideas for drawer storage, discover bedroom organizers that will help you keep things tidy and make you feel more at home in your space.
If you're looking for an easy organization option, there's nothing simpler than stash out of season clothes under your bed in a basket. Simply slide the basket out to access your neatly folded clothes whenever you need them again.

A Secure Duvet Cover
Although a duvet cover does an admirable job of protecting a comforter from stains, it is notorious for being a shifty character. Keep it and your comforter neatly in place by turning the cover inside out and sewing two pieces of five-inch-long fabric tape to all four corners. Then tie the fabric tape around each corner of the comforter, and sleep tight.
Shadow Box Jewelry Holder
Some baubles are just too pretty to put away at the end of the day. With a jewelry holder and display case made from a basic shadow box, you'll have less clutter, more chances to admire your favorite pieces, and everything within reach.

To create a belt rack that matches your other hangers (and doesn't require making holes in the wall), try this: Pre-drill a row of holes in alternating spots on both sides of a wooden clamp hanger, and screw in cup hooks. Make as many of these hangers as you need to accommodate your belts.
Stylish Jewelry Storage
Orphaned teacups and saucers are perfect vessels for sorting jewelry; when arranged in a velvet-lined drawer, they give you an easy-to-scan bird's-eye view of your bijoux. To set it up, measure the height of the drawer's side (not the front), then gather dishware that's slightly shorter. Line the drawer with velvet or felt to prevent rattling and sliding, then position the porcelain. Hook drop earrings on rims of cups, nestle necklaces within them, and stash chunkier beads and bangles on individual saucers.
