A clut­tered bed­room isn’t do­ing you any favours, with a 2015 study pub­lished in the SLEEP jour­nal re­veal­ing clut­ter junkies took longer to fall asleep, are more likely to suf­fer dis­turbed rest and are more tired in the day­time as a re­sult.

If you need ex­tra stor­age space, stylist Ashley Pratt from James Lane sug­gests in­vest­ing in a new bed.

“You can start by choos­ing an en­sem­ble with a stor­age base,” she says. “The tra­di­tional ones have draw­ers on ei­ther side but newer mod­els have a pull-tab at the base so you can lift the whole mat­tress to store all your ex­tra bed­ding and clothes out of sight.”

If this isn’t an op­tion, Ashley rec­om­mends think­ing about cus­tomis­ing the join­ery in your bed­room so you have space for ev­ery­thing you need to store or, more sim­ply, get­ting hold of some in­ex­pen­sive stor­age tubs and re­or­gan­is­ing your wardrobe to free up ex­tra space.
